Data will be obtained through three questionnaires. A State Deaf-Blind Project Questionnaire will be administered to all Project Directors and will yield detailed descriptive information about the technical assistance products and services provided by the TA&D Program grantees and to whom they provide them. A questionnaire administered to providers who are identified as those who work at least on a weekly basis with students aged 6–21 with deaf blindness will provide information concerning characteristics of these providers and their needs for technical assistance to support their work with students. A subset of these providers who have received child-specific technical assistance or other individualized staffspecific technical assistance from a state deaf-blind project will receive a short set of additional questions about their experiences with the TA received, and their satisfaction with that support. This data collection will provide unique, detailed data and information that are not currently available from other sources but that are necessary in order to accurately understand the role that the State Deaf-Blind Projects play in supporting local providers in their work with children and youth with deafblindness. The National Evaluation of the TA&D Program is part of the National Assessment of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (hereafter referred to as the National Assessment). Failure to collect these data may result in the ED being unable to adequately report to Congress on the National Assessment. Dated: June 24, 2014.

DATES: ACTION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Department of Energy (DOE) announces its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to assess the potential environmental impacts from its proposed federal action of granting a Presidential permit to Minnesota Power to construct, operate, maintain, and connect a new electric transmission line across the U.S.-Canada border in northern Minnesota. The Great Northern Transmission Line Project Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/ EIS–0499) will address potential environmental impacts from the proposed action and the range of reasonable alternatives. The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to inform the public about the proposed action, announce eight public scoping meetings, and solicit public comments on the scope of the EIS. Because the proposed project would involve actions in floodplains and wetlands, in accordance with 10 CFR part 1022, Compliance with Floodplain and Wetland Environmental Review Requirements, the EIS will include a floodplain and wetland assessment. DATES: The public scoping period starts with the publication of this Notice in the Federal Register and will continue until August 11, 2014. Written and oral comments will be given equal weight, and DOE will consider all comments submitted or postmarked by August 11, 2014 in defining the scope of this EIS. Comments submitted or postmarked after that date will be considered to the extent practicable. Eight public scoping meetings will be held between July 16 and July 24. Locations, dates, and start times for the public scoping meetings are listed in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this NOI. Requests to speak at any one or more public scoping meeting(s) should be received by Julie Ann Smith at the address indicated below on or before July 14, 2014; requests received by that date will be given priority in the speaking order. However, requests to speak also may be made at the scoping meetings. ADDRESSES: Comments on the scope of the EIS and requests to be added to the document mailing list should be addressed to: Julie Ann Smith, Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE–20), U.S. Department of Energy, 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585; by electronic mail to Juliea.Smith@ hq.doe.gov; or by facsimile to 202–586– 1472.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order (E.O.) 10485, as amended by E.O. 12038, requires that a Presidential permit be issued by DOE before electric transmission facilities may be constructed, operated, maintained, or connected at the U.S. international border. The E.O. provides that a Presidential permit may be issued after a finding that the proposed project is consistent with the public interest and after favorable recommendations from the U.S. Departments of State and Defense. In determining consistency with the public interest, DOE considers the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project under NEPA, determines the project’s impact on electric reliability (including whether the proposed project would adversely affect the operation of the U.S. electric power supply system under normal and contingency conditions), and considers any other factors that DOE may find relevant to the public interest. The regulations implementing the E.O. have been codified at 10 CFR part 205. DOE’s issuance of a Presidential permit indicates that there is no federal objection to the project, but does not mandate that the project be undertaken. Minnesota Power, an operating division of ALLETE, Inc., applied on April 15, 2014, to DOE’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) for a Presidential permit to construct, operate, maintain, and connect an approximately 220-mile, 500-kilovolt (kV) overhead, singlecircuit, alternating current (AC) electric transmission system from the Canadian Province of Manitoba to the existing Blackberry Substation near Grand Rapids, Minnesota. After due consideration of the nature and extent of the proposed project, including evaluation of the ‘‘Information Regarding Potential Environmental Impacts’’ section of the Presidential permit application, DOE has determined that the appropriate level of NEPA review for this project is an EIS.
