Proposed Project

Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant, Annual Application and Reports, OMB No. 0920-0106—Revision—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

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 No. 0920-0106). CDC is requesting OMB clearance for this legislatively mandated information collection. The request is to approve the development and adherence to Healthy People 2010 (the Nation's Health Objectives) which was released in the Spring of 2000. The PHHS block grant is mandated according to section 1904 to adhere to the Healthy People framework.

This information, which is collected through the application forms 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 report forms 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 Start Printed Page 49622annual report. The ability to collect data through Internet accessibility will allow for a more streamlined and efficient use of data processing by the states and reduce the states' burden of duplicate reporting on outcome and risk factor data. There is no cost to respondents except their time to complete the application/report. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 4270.
