Proposed Project

    Institutional Awareness and Commitment to Ensuring Safe, Stable, 
and Nurturing Relationships and Environments for Children and 
Prevention Child Maltreatment--New--

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments set children 
on a positive trajectory for optimal child development and health, 
provide a buffer against the effects of adverse child experiences, are 
fundamental to healthy brain development and have a positive impact on 
a broad range of health problems across the life course. Promoting 
safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments may also reduce 
child maltreatment which is a significant public health problem 
affecting physical and emotional health throughout the lifespan.
    NCIPC is funding five state health departments in Fiscal Year 2012 
to coordinate and manage existing and new partnerships with other 
sectors to promote safe, stable, nurturing relationships and 
environments for children; and work with partners to identify 
strategies across sectors that promote safe, stable, nurturing 
relationships and environments. CDC requests OMB approval for two years 
to collect information that will establish the baseline level of state 
health departments' and partners' awareness and commitment to ensuring 
safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments for children 
and preventing child maltreatment.
    This information will be collected from staff at health departments 
soon after receiving their award and from their partners at the start 
of each new partnership. Respondents will be 3 staff members from 5 
health departments receiving funding and 3 staff members at 
approximately 11 organizations or agencies the health departments 
choose to partner with. Information will be collected once using 
SurveyMonkey[supreg], an electronic web-based interface which is a 
secure Web site that meets the Safe Harbor and European Union data 
protection requirements. This ICR will only collect data pertaining to 
organizations. No individual identifiable information will be 
    Each grantee will receive a personalized advance notification 
letter, followed by an email with a link to the SurveyMonkey[supreg] 
site. In turn, the grantee will send a personalized advance 
notification letter, followed by an email with a link to the 
SurveyMonkey[supreg] site to each new partner throughout the funding 
    The goal of the data collection is to assess awardee awareness and 
commitment so that CDC may establish state health departments' and 
partners' level of commitment at the start of the funding. This 
information will be compared to post-funding awareness and commitment 
data which, along with other data sources (i.e., changes in public 
awareness and commitment, and changes in policies and programs), will 
allow CDC to establish the success of this funding announcement.
    Given five health departments with 10 partner organizations each 
and 3 staff at each organization responding, the total number of 
respondents for this project is 165 (83 respondents per year). Total 
project burden over the two years of data collection is 78 hours (39 
hours per year).
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
