Instrument--OMB No. 0990-NEW--Office of the Assistant Secretary for

    Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was 
signed into law on February 17, 2009, Public Law 11.5 (``Recovery 
Act''). Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) is a $650 million 
program funded by the Recovery Act. The purpose of the proposed data 
collection is to collect quarterly cost information from all community-
level CPPW awardees. This will allow HHS to receive reports on direct 
awardee costs associated with carrying out the selected evidence-based 
strategies that are required by the Funding Opportunity Announcement 
(FOA) and Notice of Grant Award (NGA). This requirement is in addition 
to the financial reporting requirements of Section 512 of the Recovery 
Act, set forth by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the 
data collection instrument titled ``Standard Data Elements for Reports 
under Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 
2009, Public Law 111-5 (Grants, Cooperative Agreements, and Loans).''
    The CPPW objective-based cost data submitted by the 51 respondents 
will provide the basis for HHS to assess the costs of the various 
program strategies, identify factors that impact average cost, and 
perform cost-effectiveness analysis of the program. Performing an 
assessment of the resources expended on each CPPW interventions will 
provide valuable information to HHS and other agencies within the 
Department for improving program efficiency within the various 
strategies of the program. There are no costs to respondents except 
their time to participate in the survey.
