1. Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant, Annual Application and Reports (0920-0106)—Renewal—The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion—In 1994, the Office of Management and Budget approved the collection of information provided in the grant applications and annual reports for the Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant (0920-0106). This approval expires on November 30, 2000. CDC is requesting an extension of OMB clearance for this legislatively mandated information collection until November 30, 2001. The extension is limited to one year to allow for the development and adherence to Healthy People 2010 to be released the Spring of 2000. The Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant is mandated according to section 1904 to adhere to the Healthy People framework, therefore, the current application and report format will be restructured to coincide with 2010 and resubmitted for OMB clearance at that time.
This information collected through the applications from the official State health agencies is required from section 1905 of the Public Health Service Act. There is no change in the proposed information collection from previous years. The information collected from the annual reports is required by section 1906, specifically the requirement for uniform data sets matching the uses of funds. The total cost to all respondents is $137,250, estimated at $25/burden hour.
