Information Collection Currently Approved Through Emergency Clearance; Comment Request FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Corporation for National and Community Service. ACTION: Notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the ‘‘Corporation’’), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning its proposed renewal of its Disaster Response Database (DRD). The DRD is a data collection tool that allows the Corporation to collect information from its programs and grantees on disaster response activities across the country. This tool serves as a central repository of information on Corporation disaster response activities for reporting to the public. Copies of the information collection requests can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the address section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the individual and office listed in the ADDRESSES section by March 24, 2006. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by the title of the information collection activity, by any of the following methods: (1) By mail sent to: Corporation for National and Community Service, Learn and Serve America; Attention Phil Shaw, Program Assistant; 1201 New York Avenue, NW., 10th Floor, Washington, DC 20525. PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Phil Shaw, (202) 606–6697 or by e-mail at pshaw@cns.gov. The Corporation is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Corporation, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are expected to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology (e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses). Background The Corporation for National and Community service regularly engages its national service programs and grantees to respond to disasters as a part of its mandate to promote community service and meet community needs. The great number of national service participants and variety of support offered necessitates a centralized reporting tool to track and measure resources dedicated to supporting communities recovering from disaster. Current Action The Corporation seeks to renew the data collection, which was originally approved through emergency clearance. The database is a web-based system that permits programs and grantees to report contributions to disaster responses. No changes are being made to the currently approved database. The Corporation also seeks to continue using the current application until the revised application is approved by OMB. The current E:\FR\FM\23JAN1.SGM 23JAN1
