Information Collection Request Title: Girls at Greater Risk for Juvenile Delinquency and HIV Prevention Program

OMB No.: 0990-0360

Abstract: The Office on Women's Health (OWH) is seeking an extension of its data collection associated with the evaluation of the Girls at Greater Risk for Juvenile Delinquency and HIV Start Printed Page 45201Prevention Program. The evaluation is designed to determine best practices and gender responsive strategies for at-risk girls between the ages of nine and 17 years. Data will continue to be collected from program participants (girls), parents of program participants, program staff (i.e. program directors and program staff), program partners, and community residents. Collected data will be submitted to OWH on a quarterly basis. Primarily private non-profit organizations and girls and adolescents participating in the program and their parents will be affected by this data collection.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of the extended data collection is to add to the evaluation database. The Girls at Greater Risk Program is in its final year and the data collected from participants will add another full data cohort to the evaluation.

Likely Respondents: The respondents are primarily private non-profit organizations, girls and adolescent females participating in funded “Girls at Greater Risk for Juvenile Delinquency and HIV Prevention Programs”, parents of program participants, program staff (i.e. program directors and program staff), program partners, and community residents that participate in community events sponsored by the Girls at Greater Risk Program.

Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
