OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Court Improvement Program (CIP) is composed of three PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 grants, the basic, data, and training grants, governed by two separate Program Instructions (PIs). The training and data grants are governed by the ‘‘new grant’’ PI and the basic grant is governed by the ‘‘basic grant’’ PI. Current PIs require separate applications and program assessment reports for each grant. Every State applies for at least two of the grants annually and most States apply for all three. As many of the application requirements are the same for all three grants, this results in duplicative work and high degrees of repetition for State courts applying for more than one CIP grant. The purpose of this Program Instruction is to streamline and simplify the application and reporting processes by consolidating the PIs into one single PI and requiring one single, consolidated application (App) package and program assessment report (PAR) per State court annually. These revisions will satisfy statutory programmatic requirements and reduce both the number of required responses and associated total burden hours for State courts. This new PI also describes programmatic and fiscal provisions and E:\FR\FM\19DEN1.SGM 19DEN1
