SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    This grant program seeks to counter the impact of the chronic 
unemployment and underemployment experienced by MSFWs who depend 
primarily on jobs in agricultural labor. NFJP grant funds are awarded 
to community-based organizations and public agencies through a biennial 
grant competition.
    NFJP grantees are required to submit a Program Planning Summary 
report (ETA Form 9094), a Program Status Summary report (ETA Form 
9095), a Housing Assistance report (ETA Form 9164), a quarterly file of 
individual records on all participants who exit the program (Workforce 
Investment Act Standardized Participant Record (WIASPR), and a grant 
plan narrative. These reporting requirements encompass a minimum level 
of information collection that is necessary to hold grantees 
appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, assess 
progress against a set of common performance measures, and allows the 
Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities. 
ETA proposes eliminating the Budget Information Summary Form, ETA 9093, 
currently submitted by grantees as part of annual program plan updates. 
ETA believes the information collected on this form is not essential to 
monitor grantee expenditures; moreover, information on prior year funds 
exists on ETA 9130 (OMB Control No. 1205-0461), a form already required 
for grantees. Discontinuation of this form will reduce the total 
estimated annual reporting burden on each NFJP grantees by 15 hours per 
year.

II. Review Focus

    The Department is particularly interested in comments which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
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 to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of response.
