Proposed Project: Information Collection to Establish Community Assistance Panels (CAPs) OMB No.0923-0007—Extension—The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is mandated pursuant to the 1980 Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), and its 1986 Amendments, The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), to prevent or mitigate adverse human health effects and diminished quality of life resulting from the exposure to hazardous substances in the environment. To facilitate this effort, ATSDR seeks the cooperation of the community being evaluated through direct communication and interaction. Direct community involvement is required to conduct a comprehensive scientific study and to effectively disseminate specific health information in a timely manner. Also, this direct interaction fosters a clear understanding of health issues that the community considers to be of importance and establishes credibility for the agency. The Community Assistance Panel nominations forms are completed by individuals in the community to nominate themselves or others for participation on these panels. This request is for a three-year extension of the current OMB approval of the Community Assistance Panel nominations form. The total annual burden hours for this collection is 25.
