Proposed Project

Evaluation of State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases—Reinstatement with Change—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description:

The “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” (NPAO) project was established by CDC to prevent and control obesity and other chronic diseases by supporting States in the development and implementation of nutrition and physical activity interventions, particularly through population-based strategies such as policy-level changes, environmental supports and the social marketing process. The goal of the programs in this project is to attain population-based behavior change such as increased physical activity and better dietary habits; this leads to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity, and ultimately to a reduction in the prevalence of chronic diseases.

Evaluation questions for “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” have been previously approved under OMB control no. 0920-0669, which is scheduled to expire January 31, 2008. CDC seeks OMB approval to reinstate the evaluation in 2008 with changes, in response to feedback from users and stakeholders based on experience with the previously Start Printed Page 71416approved questions. The evaluation is designed to focus on the recipient activities as outlined in the original funding announcement:

  • Capacity building.
  • Collaboration.
  • Planning.
  • Monitoring the burden of obesity.
  • Intervention.
  • Evaluation.

Within each of these areas, the plan identifies specific evaluation questions that have been chosen for study. The evaluation questions are asked of the funded states via a web-based data collection system supported by an electronic database every 6 months during the funding cycle. The project will continue to be conducted over a 3-year period.

There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
