This ICR contains policies and application and reporting procedures for State and local entities, to enable them to access funds for National Emergency Grant (NEG) programs. A NEG is a discretionary grant intended to complement the resources and service capacity at the State and local area levels, by providing supplemental funding for workforce development and employment services and other adjustment assistance for dislocated workers and other eligible individuals as defined in Workforce Investment Act sections 101, 134, and 173 and in the Trade Act, as amended by the Trade and Globalization Assistance Act of 2009. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because a number of changes are being proposed. Specifically, the previous submission inadvertently included a Trade Adjustment Assistance Certification Report. The report is not a form generated by the NEG program. In addition, changes are being proposed for several forms covered by the ICR. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 29, 2013 (78 FR 32277). This information collection is subject to the PRA.

The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c) (2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed request for a new OMB control number for the ‘‘Eating and Health Supplement to the American Time Use Survey.’’ A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the individual listed below in the Addresses section of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amelia Vogel, BLS Clearance Officer, at 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). (See Addresses section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The American Time Use Survey (ATUS) is the Nation’s first federally administered, continuous survey on time use in the United States. It measures, for example, time spent with children, working, sleeping, or doing leisure activities. In the United States, several existing Federal surveys collect income and wage data for individuals and families, and analysts often use such measures of material prosperity as proxies for quality of life. Time-use data substantially augment these quality-oflife measures. The data also can be used in conjunction with wage data to evaluate the contribution of non-market work to national economies. This enables comparisons of production between nations that have different mixes of market and non-market activities. The ATUS is used to develop nationally representative estimates of how people spend their time. This is done by collecting a time diary about the activities survey respondents did over a 24-hour period ‘‘yesterday,’’ from 4 a.m. on the day before the interview until 4 a.m. on the day of the interview. In the one-time interview, respondents also report who was with them during the activities, where they were, how long each activity lasted, and if they were paid. All of this information has numerous practical applications for sociologists, economists, educators, government policymakers, businesspersons, health researchers, and others. Time use data allows researchers to analyze the choices people make in how they spend their time, along with the time and income constraints they face. The data from the proposed Eating and Health module supplement can be used for research on the inter-relations and inter-associations of time use patterns and body mass index (BMI), food assistance participation, grocery shopping, and meal preparation.
