Proposed Project: Communities Putting Prevention to Work Cost Study Instrument—OMB No. 0990-NEW- Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation.
Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was signed into law on February 17, 2009, Public Law 11.5 (“Recovery Act”). Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) is a $650 million program funded by the Recovery Act. The purpose of the proposed data collection is to collect quarterly cost information from all community-level CPPW awardees'. This will allow HHS to receive reports on direct awardees costs associated with carrying out the selected evidence-based strategies that are required by the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and Notice of Grant Award (NGA). This requirement is in addition to the financial reporting requirements of Section 512 of the Recovery Act, set forth by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the data collection instrument titled “Standard Data Elements for Reports Under Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111-5 (Grants, Cooperative Agreements, and Loans).”
The activity-based cost data submitted by the 35-45 grantees will provide the basis for HHS to assess the costs of the various program strategies, identify factors that impact average cost, and perform cost-effectiveness analysis of the program. Performing an assessment of the resources expended on each CPPW intervention will provide valuable information to HHS and other agencies within the Department for improving program efficiency within the various strategies of the program. There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
