E9–9421 Filed 4–23–09; 8:45 am] mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Office of Elementary and Secondary Education BILLING CODE 4000–01–P Type of Review: New. Title: State Fiscal Stabilization Fund MOE Guidance. Abstract: This guidance supplements the April 2009 Guidance on the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund program and provides additional information on the statutory maintenance-of-effort (MOE) requirements and the process through which a State applies for an MOE waiver. Additional Information: ED is requesting that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approves this information request on an emergency basis, by May 1, 2009. Since the passage of ARRA, OESE staff has worked with ED’s Budget Service and the Office of General Counsel to develop a guidance that meets the intent and purposes of the Stabilization program. Using the regular clearance process would put ED well past the 120-day mark for awarding the Stabilization funds that are specified in the Act, which would clearly go against Congress’ intent. Not approving this emergency request would cause harm to many States and the students they serve and would delay ED’s ability to award the funds to some States in a timely manner. Frequency: One time. Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov’t, SEAs or LEAs. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 10. Burden Hours: 10.
