Start Preamble

Proposed Project:

Title: Communities Empowering Youth Evaluation Study.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The information collection activity proposed under this notice will obtain information about lead and partner organizations funded under the Communities Empowering Youth (CEY) program. The information collected will complement a survey (OMB No. 0970-0335) that is examining the organizational and partnership capacity building experienced by organizations funded under the CEY program. The proposed information collection will allow in-depth examination of a select number of lead organizations and their partners. Information collection will be through on-site observations of organizations and partnerships and structured discussions with key staff, using uniform protocols. On-site information collection will occur three times: near the beginning, at the mid point, and at the end of the three-year CEY grant period. Periodic telephone follow-ups may be conducted as necessary between on-site data collection in order to clarify or update information collected earlier and to prepare for future site visits.

Respondents: Executive directors and key staff of faith based and community organizations that received three-year CEY grants beginning in 2007.
