PHS Supplements to the Application for Federal Assistance SF-424 (0920-0428)—Revision—Office of the Director (OD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is requesting a three-year extension for continued use of the Supplements to the Request for Federal Assistance Application (SF-424).
Background and Brief Description
The Checklist, Program Narrative, and the Public Health System Impact Statement (third party notification) (PHSIS) are a part of the standard application for State and local governments and for private non-profit and for-profit organizations when applying for financial assistance from PHS grant programs. The Checklist assists applicants to ensure that they have included all required information necessary to process the application. The Checklist data helps to reduce the time required to process and review grant applications, expediting the issuance of grant awards. The PHSIS Third Party Notification Form is used to inform State and local health agencies of community-based proposals submitted by non-governmental applicants for Federal funding.
There may be some revisions made to one or more of the forms to allow the respondents easy web-base access. This should not affect the current burden. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses/ respondent||Average burden/ response (in hrs.)||Total burden (in hrs.)|
|State and local health departments; non-profit and for-profit organizations||7,457||1||5.7255||42,695|
