ADDRESSES: Background The AmeriCorps NCCC Project Sponsor Survey evaluates NCCC’s performance impact on sponsoring organizations and communities. NCCC utilizes this data, completed by sponsoring organizations, to capture the short and long-term outcomes of the NCCC program on the organizations and the communities they serve. In order to achieve this goal, the survey measures enhanced capacity of the sponsoring organization (‘‘sponsor’’) to meet community needs, and expanded or enhanced community impact due to PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 sponsor-NCCC collaboration. Sponsors receive one of two possible surveys. The first is for project sponsors that selfidentify as having a volunteer generation component and the other is for non-volunteer generating projects. The volunteer generation survey has additional questions to evaluate the effectiveness of NCCC teams in recruiting or coordinating volunteers. The survey is administered electronically to all project sponsors after each round is completed. Current Action The information collection will otherwise be used in the same manner as the existing survey. CNCS also seeks to continue using the current survey until the revised survey is approved by OMB. The current survey is due to expire on May 2014. Type of Review: Renewal. Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service. Title: AmeriCorps NCCC Sponsor Survey. OMB Number: 3045–0138. Agency Number: None.

These sponsors apply to receive a 10-person NCCC team for a period of six–eight weeks to implement local service projects. There are approximately 156 projects in each of four project rounds per year. The project sponsors are uniquely able to provide the information sought in the NCCC Sponsor Survey. Total Respondents: Based on the number of projects completed last fiscal year, NCCC expects to administer 625 surveys each fiscal year. These may not be unique responders as many sponsors receive teams on a rotating basis and thus may complete the survey more than once per year. Frequency: Quarterly distribution. Each sponsor will complete only one survey per project. Time per Response: 10 minutes. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 104 hours. Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): None. Total Burden Cost (operating/ maintenance): None. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record.

utilizes this data, completed by sponsoring organizations, to capture 
the short and long-term outcomes of the NCCC program on the 
organizations and the communities they serve. In order to achieve this

organization (``sponsor'') to meet community needs, and expanded or 
enhanced community impact due to sponsor-NCCC collaboration. Sponsors

that self-identify as having a volunteer generation component and the 
other is for non-volunteer generating projects. The volunteer 
generation survey has additional questions to evaluate the 
effectiveness of NCCC teams in recruiting or coordinating volunteers. 
The survey is administered electronically to all project sponsors after 
each round is completed.

Current Action

    The information collection will otherwise be used in the same 
manner as the existing survey. CNCS also seeks to continue using the 
current survey until the revised survey is approved by OMB. The current
