Comments

    CNCS published a Notice in the Federal Register on February 8, 
2017, FR Doc. 2017-02527--Vol. 82, No. 25, pp. 9726-9727, inviting 
public comment on our plans to submit this request. We received six 
requests for additional information and sixteen comments in response to 
the Notice. All letters and comments are listed in the attached doc. In 
summary, of the sixteen comments, 14 raised concerns regarding proposed 
changes to the volunteer questions. Many of the comments were from

previous instrument should be re-instated.
    In considering these comments CNCS offers the following response. 
The re-designed supplement is intended to focus on the broader concept 
of civic engagement, of which volunteerism is one component. The re-
designed supplement incorporates many of the recommendations made by 
the National Academy of Sciences, as well as recommendations made by 
experts in the field of civic engagement, social capital and 
volunteering. The Civic Engagement and Volunteering supplement more 
accurately reflects the mission of the CNCS, building stronger 
communities and promoting active citizenship through service. The 
proposed instrument does include some measures that will allow for 
limited continuity with the previous supplement, however the advantage 
of a combined supplement is that it will allow the user to assess 
overall civic activity conditioned by volunteering.
    However in response to the comments requesting greater continuity 
and because the time burden on the new supplement is shorter, CNCS is 
adding back some original questions regarding volunteer activity and 
organizations.
