July 21 -- The National Center of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), invites comments to OMB by August 28, 2023 regarding the continuation of the Management Information System for Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs, with revisions. [Comments due 30 days after submission to OMB on July 27, 2023.]
The Comprehensive Cancer Control Branch administers the NCCCP, which provides funding to 66 state health departments and the District of Columbia, US Territories and Freely Associated States, Federally Recognized American Indian Tribes, Tribal Organizations, Alaska Native Organizations, and Urban Indian Organization; or their Bona Fide Agents, to design, implement, and evaluate comprehensive cancer control plans to reduce the burden of cancer locally. Support for these programs is a cornerstone of CDC efforts to reduce the burden of cancer throughout the nation. Awards to individual applicants are made for a five-year program period. Continuation awards for subsequent budget periods are made on the basis of satisfactory progress in achieving both national and program-specific goals and objectives, as well as the availability of funds.
In 2022, 66 recipients were selected for funding for DP22–2202 (“Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for State, Territorial, and Tribal Organizations”) to implement a program to support cancer coalition efforts that leverage resources to plan and implement evidence-based strategies to promote the primary prevention of cancer; support cancer early detection efforts, address the needs of cancer survivors; and promote health equity. Consistent with programmatic changes, the proposed data collection plan for DP22–2202 has been redesigned to increase efficiency by updating existing and adding new data collection instruments, which were previously approved under the current OMB package (OMB Control No. 0920–0841) and Generic package (OMB Control No. 0920–0879). This revised data collection will allow CDC to continue providing routine feedback to recipients based on their data submissions, tailor technical assistance as needed, support program planning, and assess program outcomes. Specifically, in this Revision request, CDC seeks OMB approval to use an interview and web-based survey to collect, store, retrieve, share, and report accurate and timely information to monitor and evaluate recipient performance.
