Proposed Project: Prevention and Wellness-Leveraging National Organizations—OMB No. 0990-New- Office of Public Health and Science (OPHS).

Abstract: The Office of Public Health and Science is requesting an approval by OMB on a new collection. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Prevention and Wellness- Leveraging National Organizations is a cooperative agreement program authorized under 42 U.S.C. 300k-1, 300, section 1701 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. The funding opportunity focuses on two categories of activities:

  • Category A: Obesity prevention through improved nutrition and increased physical activity
  • Category B: Tobacco prevention and control

The National Organizations who receive funding will be supporting Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW)-funded communities by providing expertise and technical assistance to help implement select MAPPS (Media, Access, Point of Purchase/Promotion, Pricing, and Social Support and Services) strategies through national organizations' systems and networks. The National Organizations will work to sustain community prevention efforts beyond Recovery Act CPPW funding and support the National Prevention Media Initiative through co-branding and augmenting HHS-developed media campaigns in communities.

The outcome measures that will be collected from funded National Organizations include approval/enactment of MAPPS-related policy, systems, and environmental change in physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco in funded communities. Since a critical component of the National Organizations is to support and assist CPPW-funded communities with their expert resources, the National Organizations and the CPPW-funded communities will share ownership of the same outcome measures. Because the National Organizations and their local affiliates have a distinct supporting role in these community-Start Printed Page 62543wide efforts, the output measures track the kinds of added value to be derived from involvement of the National Organizations and its local affiliates in the community-wide efforts which should help drive the outcome measure.
