Proposed Collection: State and Community Tobacco Control Research Initiative Evaluation (SCTC), 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Cancer Institute State and Community Tobacco Control Research Initiative is a program within the Tobacco Control Research Branch in the Behavioral Research Program of the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences. The program targets 4 high-priority tobacco control research areas at the state and community level in the United States: (1) Secondhand smoke policies, (2) Tobacco tax and pricing policies, (3) Mass media countermeasures and community and social norms, and (4) Tobacco industry practices. The initiative supports innovative research to yield rapid and actionable findings for state and community tobacco control programs. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the dissemination, implementation, and community collaboration processes of the grantees and their respective state and community partners and stakeholders. The evaluation will utilize archival grant project data and archival data collected from the scientists in the first two years of the initiative. The evaluation also will collect new data to: (1) Determine relationships, interactions, and connectedness among different network partnerships over time and with policy makers; (2) assess the utility of research tools, interventions, products, and findings from the perspective of key tobacco control stakeholders; and (3) determine key indicators for broad adoption of research products. Results will address research-to-practice gaps by providing a critical window into the process of disseminating evidence-based research tools, products, and science findings in community public health settings. Intended audiences include staff at NIH Institutes and Centers interested in supporting translation/dissemination and implementation science.

OMB approval is requested for one year. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 112.Start Printed Page 56819
