Reports Clearance Officer at (301) 443-1129.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the

Proposed Project: Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship and Nurse 
Anesthetist Traineeship Forms

    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) developed 
the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) and Nurse Anesthetist 
Traineeship (NAT) Forms for the Guidance Application for the 
Traineeship Programs. The AENT/NAT Traineeship forms are used annually 
by new applicants that are applying for AENT and NAT funding. The AENT 
and NAT programs provide training grants to educational institutions to 
increase the numbers of advanced education nurses. Award amounts are 
based on enrollment, traineeship support, graduate data and two funding 
preferences to institutions which meet the criteria for the preference.
    The AENT/NAT Traineeship forms include information on program 
participants such as the number of enrollees, number of graduates and 
the types of programs they are enrolling into and/or graduating from. 
These forms will be available electronically through Grants.gov. AENT 
and NAT applicants will have a single access point to submit their 
grant applications and AENT/NAT Traineeship forms.
    The system will be designed so that the data from the prior year's 
submission will be pre-populated. This will significantly reduce the 
burden to AENT and NAT applicants. They will need only edit those 
sections that have changed. The electronic system will conduct 
automated checks on data validity, data consistency and application 
completeness. This facilitates application review and eliminates much 
of the previously required data cleansing. Finally, data from this 
system will be used in the award determination and validation process. 
Additionally, the data will be used to ensure programmatic compliance, 
report to Congress and policymakers on the program accomplishments, 
formulate, and justify future budgets for these activities submitted to 
the Office of Management and Budget and Congress.
    The estimated average annual burden per year is as follows:
