Comments

    A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal 
Register on December 5, 2004. The summary of comments received is as 
follows: A total of 17 written responses were received that represented 
a total of 39 individuals. One letter was written on behalf of an 
Association including the collective comments of 23 individuals. Each 
written response contained numerous separate comments or statements. In 
summary:
    (a) Two comments were received about adding the DUNS number to Part 
I--Application Facesheet. The Corporation agrees and will do so.
    (b) Two comments requested that the questions contained in both the 
Part III--Narrative and Part IV--Work Plans be clarified and contain 
more detail. The revised application includes these changes.
    (c) Five comments were received about Part II--Budget, of which 3 
were incorporated. The three reflected in the revised information 
collection are to clarify the types of items to enter on each budget 
line item; to provide clearer instruction; and to more thoroughly 
define the category on the budget form called ``xcess.'' Two comments 
were not included: A request to update formulas in a spreadsheet 
template, because the spreadsheet is no longer used; and a request to 
list the types of required documentation needed to respond to an audit. 
This last request is beyond the scope of the grant application's 
purpose. The information requested by the respondent can be found in 
Program Regulations.
    (d) Two commenters thought the estimated burden was too low. The 
Corporation believes that burden estimate is adequate, particularly 
with upcoming improvements to the eGrants system, and has retained the 
original annualized time estimates.
    (e) There was one comment each about the Volunteer Station Roster, 
requesting a standard user-friendly format; and one comment about 
sorting the list of Service Categories in the grant application in the 
same order as is used in the Progress Report. Both suggestions were 
incorporated.
    (f) From a total of 9 general comments, 7 were beyond the scope of 
this information collection. Comments included two pleas to provide 
more federal funds to grantees; a request to change the method used to 
capture outcomes and outcome-based programming; a request to 
standardize at least one programmatic outcome for all RSVP grantees 
nationwide; one request to restrict the number of new data elements as 
much as possible. One general comment addressed the Corporation's 
ongoing system of ``grading'' its grantees on outcomes, which is 
factually incorrect, as the Corporation does not grade its grantees in 
this manner. Another comment asked the Corporation to lower the age and 
income eligibility for its Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion 
Programs, which was established and can only be changed through a 
legislative change. Two general comments asked for copies of the 
revised application package, which were provided.
    (g) The 43 remaining comments, comprising the majority of all 
comments, requested changes to the Corporation's electronic grants 
management system, eGrants. While beyond the scope of this information 
collection, Senior Corps will share these comments with the 
Corporation's eGrants team. Also, Senior Corps will prepare an update 
for its grantees about the soon-to-debut version of eGrants Phase II, 
including the problems reported by the public that it will solve.
    Description: The Corporation is seeking approval of the Senior 
Corps Grant Application which is used by current and prospective 
grantees to apply for sponsorship of projects under the Retired and 
Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP); the Foster Grandparent Program (FGP); 
the Senior Companion Program (SCP); the Senior Demonstration Program 
(SDP); and the Special Volunteer Program--Homeland Security (SVP). 
Completion of the Grant Application is required to be considered for 
sponsorship and the receipt of associated federal funds and benefits. 
Changes proposed include:
     Additional instructions to clarify budget, narrative, work 
plan, and performance measures sections;
