In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has submitted the information collection request titled [Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) program] to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. CDC previously published a “Proposed Data Collection Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations” notice on December 26, 2018 to obtain comments from the public and affected agencies. CDC Start Printed Page 26108received one comment related to the previous notice and it was acknowledged by CDC. This notice serves to allow an additional 30 days for public and affected agency comments.
CDC will accept all comments for this proposed information collection project. The Office of Management and Budget is particularly interested in comments that:
(a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
(b) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
(c) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
(d) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including, through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses; and
(e) Assess information collection costs.
To request additional information on the proposed project or to obtain a copy of the information collection plan and instruments, call (404) 639-7570 or send an email to email@example.com. Direct written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained in this notice to the Attention: CDC Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20503 or by fax to (202) 395-5806.

Background and Brief Description
The WISEWOMAN program sponsored by the CDC, provides services to low income, uninsured, or underinsured women aged 40-64. The WISEWOMAN program is designed to prevent, detect, and control hypertension and other cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors through healthy behavior support services which are tailored for individual and group behavior change. The WISEWOMAN program provides services to women who are jointly enrolled in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), which is also administered by CDC.
The WISEWOMAN program is administered by state health departments and tribal programs. In 2018, new five-year cooperative agreements were awarded under Funding Opportunity Announcement DP18-1816, subject to the availability of funds. CDC collects two types of information from WISEWOMAN awardees. The WISEWOMAN awardee submits an electronic data file to CDC twice per year. The Minimum Data Elements (MDE) file contains data using a unique identifier with client-level information about cardiovascular disease risk factors, types of healthy behavior support services for participants served by the program. The estimated burden per response for the MDE file is 24 hours. The Annual Progress Report provides a narrative summary of each awardee's objectives and the activities undertaken to meet program goals. The estimated burden per response is 16 hours.
There are no changes to the information collected. CDC will continue to use the information collected from WISEWOMAN awardees to support program monitoring and improvement activities, evaluation, and assessment of program outcomes. The overall program evaluation helps to demonstrate program accomplishments and strengthen the evidence for strategy implementation for improved engagement of underserved populations. It can also determine whether the identified strategies and associated activities can be implemented at various levels within a state or tribal organization. Evaluation is also designed to demonstrate how WISEWOMAN can obtain cardiovascular disease health outcome data on at-risk populations, promote public education about cardiovascular disease risk-factors, and improve the availability of healthy behavior support services for under-served women.
This reinstatement is requested for three years. Participation in this information collection is required as a condition of cooperative agreement funding. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total annualized burden hours are 1,344.
