Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant, Annual Application and Reports (OMB #0920-0106)—Revision—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 1994, OMB approved the collection of information provided in the grant applications and annual reports for the Preventive Health and Health Services (PHHS) Block Grant (OMB #0920-0106). This approval expires on November 30, 2001. CDC is requesting OMB clearance for this legislatively mandated information collection until November 30, 2004. The request is to approve the development and adherence to Healthy People 2010, the Nation's Health Objectives which was released the Spring of 2000. The PHHS block grant is mandated according to section 1904 to adhere to the Healthy People framework, therefore, the current application and report format was restructured to coincide with 2010.
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 a slight change in the proposed information collection from previous years. The changes include more program specific information and the relationship of block funded activities to program strategy. The information collected from the annual reports is required by section 1906. The development of a PHHS block grant web page with data web links from existing federal databases will be used to coincide with the collection of uniform data for the annual report. The availability to collect data through internet accessibility will allow for a more streamlined and efficient use of data processing by the states and will reduce the states burden of duplicate reporting on outcome and risk factor data. The cost to respondents is estimated at $25 per burden hour, a total cost to respondents of $106,750.
