OMB Control No.: 2132–0563. Background: 49 U.S.C. 5316, the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:28 Mar 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 Program, authorized the Secretary of Transportation to make grants to states for areas with a population of less than 200,000 and designated recipients in urbanized areas of 200,000 persons or greater to transport welfare recipients and other low-income individuals to and from jobs related to employment. The (JARC) program was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by welfare recipients and low-income persons seeking to obtain and maintain employment. Many new entry-level jobs are located in suburban areas, and low-income individuals have difficulty accessing these jobs from their inner city, urban, or rural neighborhoods. In addition, many entry level-jobs require working late at night or on weekends when conventional transit services are either reduced or non-existent. Finally, many employment related-trips are complex and involve multiple destinations including reaching childcare facilities or other services. The Job Access and Reverse Commute Program was repealed under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21). However, funds previously authorized for programs repealed by MAP–21 remain available for their originally authorized purposes until the period of availability expires, the funds are fully expended, the funds are rescinded by Congress, or the funds are otherwise reallocated. Respondents: State and local government, private, non-profit organizations and public transportation authorities. Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 51 hours for each of the 42 respondents. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 24,464 Frequency: Annual. Matthew M. Crouch, Associate Administrator for Administration.
