Evaluating HIV Prevention Programs in Community-Based Organizations (CBOs)—New—The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP) proposes to develop and test a model of HIV prevention community-based organization (CBO) functioning using a one time data collection questionnaire. Each CBO will be asked to answer questions related to the existence and importance of factors affecting their HIV prevention interventions. This data collection is necessary for CDC to better (a) assess CBO applications systematically for funding, (b) develop materials CBOs can use to assess their own programmatic needs and create a social map of their target populations, including a CBO profile of organizational, environmental, target population, intervention program Start Printed Page 9347and accomplishments characteristics, (c) better develop CBO technical assistance (TA) materials, and (d) provide TA to CBOs that have already been selected by CDC for funding. This study will also yield more hypotheses for statistical testing, instruments with reliability and validity data for use in other studies, and a model that can be used and revised to meet the context of a particular CBO. The questionnaire will be administered to 766 CBOs that have applied for CDC funding under program announcements 00023, 00100, 99047, 99091, 99092, 99096. The total annual cost to respondents is estimated at $26,044 based on an average salary of $35,000 ($17.00 per hour) for program managers.
