Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 500. Burden Hours: 500 Abstract: The U.S. Department of Education is requesting approval for the Application for Assistance under Section 8002 of Title VIII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by No Child Left Behind (NCLB). This application is otherwise known as Impact Aid Payments for Federal Property. Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) that have lost taxable property due to Federal activities use this form to request financial assistance. Regulations for the Impact Aid Program are found at 34 CFR 222. This application previously included a separate application for Section 8003, another distinct formula grant that requires different data from applicant LEAs. To facilitate more efficient clearance processes for both applications this year and in future years, the Department is separating these two applications into two paperwork approval packages. The Section 8003 application is being submitted under the OMB 1810-NEW number. The statute and regulations for this program require a variety of Section 8002 data from applicants annually to determine eligibility for the grants and the amount of grant payment under the statutory formula. The least burdensome method of collecting this required information is for each applicant to submit these data through a web-based electronic application hosted on the Department of Education’s e-Grants Web site.
