Programs originate at 109 Land-Grant Institutions, and local programs are conducted and managed by some 3,000 professional Extension staff in 3,150 counties, with nearly 6 million youth enrolled each year. Over 500,000 volunteer leaders work directly with the 4–H youth. The 1914 Smith-Lever Act created the Cooperative Extension System (CES) of the Land-Grant Institutions and their Federal partner, the Extension Service, now NIFA, USDA. 4–H was already well-established and became the first operating part of the new extension work. The Smith-Lever Act stipulated that ‘‘It shall be the duty of said colleges, annually, on or about the first day of January, to make to the Governor of the State in which it is located a full and detailed report of its operations in extension work as defined in this Act . . . a copy of which report shall be sent to the Secretary of Agriculture.’’ As a result of this requirement, the state 4– H office submits an electronic aggregated summary of their 4–H enrollment. Information collected in the 4–H Youth Enrollment Report by the state 4–H offices includes the youth enrollment totals, by delivery mode, by type of 4–H activity, by school grade, by gender, by place of residence, by race and ethnicity as well as youth and adult volunteer totals. The NIFA information collection is being revised to include the youth and adult volunteer totals by gender, as well as race and ethnicity. Need for the Information: The Annual 4–H Enrollment Report is the principal means by which NIFA tracks 4–H member and volunteer enrollments, as well as identifies trends that can indicate emerging needs, potential problems, and opportunities. Information obtained from this report, as requested by the Congress or the Administration, is used to estimate rural versus urban outreach, enrollment by race, youth participation in leadership, community service, etc. In addition, it is used to estimate market share, percentage of the youth of each state by age and place of residence, and those who are enrolled in the 4–H youth development program. The annual 4–H Youth Enrollment Report also allows oversight of all reasonable efforts by staff and volunteers to reach underserved and minority groups. New information collected will allow NIFA to address civil rights related requests. Information also is available at http:// www.4-h.org/resource-library/access-4- VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:38 Jun 06, 2013 Jkt 229001 h-online-enrollment-managementsystem/. Estimate of Burden: The numbers of respondents increase because individual institutions will have the option to submit an institution report, rather than aggregating data from multiple institutions into a single state report. The burden estimates expect to increase by no more than 1 minute to generate the data and fill in the cells on the spreadsheet. The increase is minimal because the new information to be reported is already made available to the institution so they need only relay the information to NIFA. The estimates are: • Number of Respondents: 109. • Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. • Time per Response: 1 hour and 1 minute. • Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 110 hours and 49 minutes. Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) 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; (b) 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; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 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. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request to OMB for approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Done at Washington, DC, this 31st day of May 2013.

of the State in which it is located a full and detailed report of its 
operations in extension work as defined in this Act . . . a copy of 
which report shall be sent to the Secretary of Agriculture.'' As a 
result of this requirement, the state 4-H office submits an electronic 
aggregated summary of their 4-H enrollment.

state 4-H offices includes the youth enrollment totals, by delivery 
mode, by type of 4-H activity, by school grade, by gender, by place of

collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of
