Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request-Evaluation of SNAP Nutrition Education Practices Study
Document Number: 2010-22181
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-09-07
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice invites the general public and other public agencies to comment on the proposed collection of data for the Evaluation of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Nutrition Education (-Ed) Practices Study. The goal of SNAP-Ed is to improve the likelihood that SNAP participants and those eligible to participate will make healthy choices within a limited budget and choose active lifestyles consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the USDA Food Guidance System. With limited resources, SNAP-Ed nutrition educators attempt to tailor their messages to fit the varying needs of differing populations and evaluate the extent to which their efforts result in positive, voluntary changes in nutrition behaviors. The Evaluation of SNAP Nutrition Education Practices is an extension of the current Models of SNAP-Ed and Evaluation Study, conducting rigorous, independent evaluations of an additional three SNAP-Ed demonstration projects. Each of the demonstration projects is also conducting an impact evaluation assessment which will be compared to FNS's more rigorous, independent evaluation. In conjunction with the Models of SNAP-Ed and Evaluation Study, the Evaluation of SNAP Nutrition Education Practices will provide FNS with a total of seven sound, independent estimates of the effectiveness of SNAP-Ed approaches, and will provide SNAP-Ed educators with examples of evaluation designs that are both feasible and scientifically robust.
