NTIA will process applications received by the first business day of each month and will provide information monthly on the Upgrade Program Internet site regarding the amount of remaining funds available. In order to ensure that NTIA and the Grants Office complete processing of applications and issuing awards by September 30, 2012, NTIA must receive final Upgrade Program applications no later than 5 p.m., Eastern Time, July 2, 2012. If NTIA or the Grants Office determines that an application submitted for the July 2, 2012, last Closing Date requires additional information, the applicant must provide the requested information within ten business days or NTIA will discontinue processing the application. NTIA also announces that it will use population data from the newly available 2010 U.S. Census for applications received after July 1, 2011, in determining whether an application meets the statutory requirement to ‘‘upgrade low-power television stations from analog to digital in eligible rural communities.’’ 3 Applications submitted up to and including July 1, 2011, can continue to use the population reported in the 2000 Census to determine station eligibility. After July 1, 2011, population figures from the 2000 Census will continue to be available on the Upgrade Program Web site, http://www.ntia.doc.gov/lptv/ Application/, and may be used as a preliminary guide to determine eligibility. Almost all stations showing an NTIA-calculated population of significantly less than 20,000 using 2000 Census data should continue to be eligible for the Upgrade Program. NTIA will provide 2010 Census population figures for any facility that requests such information. Potential applicants may email a request, which must include the FCC Facility ID number, to: ldyer@ntia.doc.gov. For applications submitted after July 1, 2011, applicants may also use the other methods of determining eligibility discussed in the Upgrade Program NOFA so long as those methods rely on 2010 Census data. Upgrade Program staff remain available to assist potential applicants in complying with program requirements. All Upgrade Program instructions and forms remain available on the NTIA Internet site at http:// www.ntia.doc.gov/lptv. 3 The Act at § 3009 (emphasis added). NTIA’s interpretation and implementation of this requirement is discussed at length in the Upgrade Program NOFA. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Apr 27, 2011 Jkt 223001 Dated: April 25, 2011.

DATES: An emergency review has been requested in accordance with the Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 3507(j)), since public harm is reasonably likely to result if normal clearance procedures are followed. Approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been requested by May 31, 2011. A regular clearance process is also beginning. Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before June 27, 2011. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be addressed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attention: Education Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Room 10222, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, be faxed to (202) 395–5806 or e-mailed to oira_submission@omb.eop.gov with a cc: to ICDocketMgr@ed.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) requires that the Director of OMB provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Privacy, Information and Records Management Services, Office of Management, publishes this notice containing proposed information collection requests at the beginning of the Departmental review of the information collection. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g., new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. ED invites public comment. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23797 this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on respondents, including through the use of information technology. Dated: April 25, 2011. James Hyler, Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Privacy, Information and Records Management Services, Office of Management. Office of the Secretary Type of Review: New. Title of Collection: Race to the Top Annual Performance Report. OMB Control Number(s): 1894–NEW. Frequency of Responses: Annually. Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Government, State Educational Agencies or Local Educational. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 12. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,452. Abstract: In order to fulfill our responsibilities for programmatic oversight and public reporting, the Department has developed a Race to the Top Annual Performance Report that is tied directly to the Race to the Top selection programmatic requirements previously established and published in the Federal Register. The report is grounded in the key performance targets included in grantees’ approved Race to the Top plans. Grantees will be required to report on their progress in the four core education reform areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This reporting includes narrative sections on progress and key performance indicators. As was the case in the completion of the Race to the Top applications, grantees will coordinate with Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) to collect and report on school and district-level data elements. In order to robustly fulfill our programmatic and fiscal oversight responsibilities, it is essential that we gather this data from Race to the Top grantees and subgrantees as soon as possible to inform decision-making for the second year of the grant. The Race to the Top Annual Performance Report data will be used as a component of the comprehensive program review process (for which the comment period just closed). In particular, the data informs both a stocktake (meeting) with Race to the Top leadership that will be focused on assessing grantee progress and pinpointing areas requiring technical E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1
