Background

    Since the President's Call to Service, many Americans have

implementation of these changes through the rulemaking process includes 
ensuring the Corporation's information collection instruments 
accurately reflect these issues. In an effort to be compliant while 
maintaining functions essential to the operations of each State 
Commission and AmeriCorps program, we are submitting the enclosed 
request to OMB for approval of information collection activities. This

Competitive, State Education Award, National Direct, National Direct 
Education Award Program, National Professional Corps, Indian Tribes, 
States and Territories without Commissions, and National Planning
