SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Waivers of Section 6(o) of the Food and Nutrition Act. OMB Number: 0584–0479. Expiration Date: January 31, 2015. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 824 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), Public Law 104–193, 110 Stat. 2323 amended Section 6(o) of the Food Stamp Act of 1977 (7 U.S.C. 2015(o)) to establish a time limit for the receipt of food stamp benefits for certain ablebodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) who are not working at least 20 hours per week. This time limit applies only to adults between 18 and 50 years of age that do not have children or adult dependents in their SNAP household. ABAWD recipient eligibility is limited to three months within a 36 month period, unless the individual is working, or participating in a designated employment and training activity, for 20 hours per week. (Note: Pursuant to the OMB #0584–0479 Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–234, 122 Stat. 923, enacted May 22, 2008), the Food Stamp Act was renamed the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 and the Food Stamp Program was renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program [SNAP].) The provision authorizes that upon the request of a State agency, the Secretary of Agriculture may waive this provision for any group of individuals if the Secretary determines ‘‘that the area in which the individuals reside has an unemployment rate of over 10 percent or does not have a sufficient number of jobs to provide employment for the individuals.’’ As required in the statute, in order to receive a waiver, the State agency must submit sufficient supporting information so that the Secretary can make the required determination as to the area’s unemployment rate or insufficiency of available jobs. This collection of information is necessary in order to obtain waivers of the SNAP ABAWD time limit. Based on the experience of the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) during calendar year 2014, FNS projects that on an annual basis 43 State agencies will submit requests for waivers of the time limit for ABAWD recipients based on a high unemployment rate or an insufficient number of jobs. Using unemployment projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) through 2024, FNS believes that labor market conditions in 2014 would be Estimated number of respondents Requirement Responses annually per respondent more representative of the U.S. labor market over the next three years than would the preceding three years. A typical State waiver request includes several geographic areas and each geographic area may include multiple cities or counties. FNS projects that of the 43 requests each year, 33 will be based on labor market data, 8 will be based on a Labor Surplus Area (LSA) designation by the Department of Labor (DOL) and 2 will be based on a DOL extended unemployment benefit trigger notice. FNS estimates a response time of 35 hours for each waiver request based on labor market data, which require detailed analysis of labor markets within the State. FNS estimates a burden of 4 hours per respondent for waivers based on an LSA designation or a DOL trigger notice, as the data required to support these waivers is readily available from the DOL Web site and requires minimal preparation by State agencies. FNS projects a total burden of 1,195 hours. Affected Public: State Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 43. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 43. Estimate Time per Response: Varies between 4 to 35 Hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,195.
