Background The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the Department of Labor (DOL or the Department) occasionally solicits applications for grants by issuing a ‘‘Solicitation for Grant Applications’’ or ‘‘SGA.’’ These are usually awarded for multi-year periods. In the non-competition years, grantees are required to submit a similar but simplified set of documents to ETA in order to ensure the continuation of their grants. Grantees are generally required to submit a two-part application. The first part of an ETA Planning Guidance TEGL consists of submitting the Standard Form 424 (SF– 424), ‘‘Application for Federal Assistance’’, the SF–424A Budget Narrative. The second part of the Planning Guidance usually requires a statement of work re-affirming the applicant’s capabilities to meet performance criteria, along with certain certifications and assurances. On an emergency basis OMB approved TEGLs to be issued by these programs in order to obligate the Recovery Act funds by March 19, 2009, as directed by the Congress and the President. The Indian and Native American Program provides employment and VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:07 Aug 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 training grants to Indian tribes, nonprofit tribal organizations, Alaska Native entities and Native Hawaiian organizations for the purpose of providing employment and training services to low income and unemployed Native Americans. The program is authorized under section 166 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The program’s services include a Comprehensive Services (‘‘adult’’) Program (CSP), which serves Indians or Native Americans (as determined by the individual grantee) who are ages 14 and above and who are unemployed, underemployed, or low-income individuals. The INA program also administers the Supplemental Youth Services Program (SYSP), which serves Indian and Native American youth between the ages of 14 and 24 who reside on or near a reservation (or in Alaska, Hawaii, or Oklahoma), and who are low-income or have other barriers to employment. Originally authorized by the Older Americans Act of 1965, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is designed to foster individual economic self-sufficiency and promote useful opportunities in community service employment for unemployed low-income persons (particularly persons who have poor employment prospects) who are age 55 or older, and to increase the number of persons who may enjoy the benefits of unsubsidized employment in both the public and private sectors. II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 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 to respond, including through 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.
