ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), 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. Sec. 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 requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed Opportunity Youth Evaluation Bundling study. The primary purpose of the study is to conduct an outcome evaluation on the common interventions of select AmeriCorps State and National grantees engaging opportunity youth as AmeriCorps members. The project is an effort to generate rigorous outcome evidence, leverage limited evaluation resources, and build the evaluation capacity of smaller AmeriCorps State and National grantees. Collection of this data is not required for obtaining grant funding support from CNCS. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the ADDRESSES section of this Notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the individual and office listed in the ADDRESSES section by March 31, 2015. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by the title of the information collection activity, by any of the following methods: (1) By mail sent to: Corporation for National and Community Service, Office of Research and Evaluation; Attention asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Jan 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 Adrienne DiTommaso, Research Analyst, 10th floor, 10902A; 1201 New York Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20525.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Adrienne DiTommaso, 1–202–606– 3611, or by email at aditommaso@ cns.gov. CNCS is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of CNCS, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate 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; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are expected to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology (e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The primary purpose of the study is to conduct an outcome evaluation on the common interventions of select AmeriCorps State and National grantees engaging opportunity youth as AmeriCorps members. The project is an effort to generate rigorous outcome evidence, leverage limited evaluation resources, and build the evaluation capacity of smaller AmeriCorps State and National grantees. At the same time, it is an effort to test a new evaluation approach that has the potential to enhance the ability of any small program to gather and utilize outcome data. Collection of this data is not required for obtaining grant funding support from CNCS. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5093 Current Action This is a new information collection request.
