SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. 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.Start Printed Page 10360

Proposed Project

Grants for Injury Control Research Centers Annual Progress Report (APR)—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

OMB approval is requested for three years for this new information collection project. CDC will collect information from grantees funded under Grants for Injury Control and Research Centers (ICRC) for the Annual Progress Report (APR). The CDC and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) began funding the ICRCs throughout the United States in 1987 to study ways to prevent injuries and violence and to work with community partners to put research findings into action.

There are currently ten CDC-funded ICRCs, which are typically funded in five-year funding cycles. ICRCs endeavor to prevent injuries and violence while working to strengthen the injury and violence prevention infrastructure by catalyzing and integrating resources at the local, state and national levels. This collaborative approach is a vital component in the success of ICRCs's efforts to make an impact on population-level reduction in injury-related harm that is critical to HHS objectives.

Grantees will monitor and report progress on a set of performance indicators, their activities, and progress towards stated grant objectives. The reporting templates will capture this information through the use of performance indicators (indicators that signify progress towards a goal) and outcomes of project activities and tasks. In addition, each grantee will complete a personnel and publication data collection form. Information will be transmitted to CDC electronically and via hard copy by email and postal mail respectively.

Data collection will include 100% of population, no sampling. The data will be analyzed using descriptive and summary statistics, qualitative summary. The only cost to respondents will be time spent responding to the survey.
