The F.A.S.T. form is proposed to be piloted as a consolidated and streamlined preformatted electronic application form that is user-friendly and has an interactive interface providing structure and clarity for applicants. The proposed F.A.S.T. form is not intended to replace the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOAs) which will still function as the full text of all funding opportunities for which applications are sought and considered by the Administration for Native Americans. The proposed F.A.S.T. form will be used in a pilot capacity in just one Administration for Native Americans’ discretionary program areas: Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance. All applicants applying for funding in that program area will be required to use the F.A.S.T. form during the pilot competition proposed for FY16 unless they request and receive approval to submit a paper application. By using the F.A.S.T. form no applicant will be required to provide any information beyond what is already required by the FOA. Additionally, free training and technical assistance will be available to all applicants on use of the F.A.S.T. form. ANA intends to use the project proposals submitted via the F.A.S.T. form to make funding decisions for Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance grant awards made in the FY 2016 pilot year. In addition, ANA will solicit feedback from applicants and panel reviewers to obtain feedback on the results, outcomes, and their recommendations regarding the F.A.S.T. form as a user friendly method of applying for funding opportunities. If the pilot is successful in making it easier for applicants to apply, ANA will consider potentially expanding use of the F.A.S.T. form to all Administration for Native Americans’ discretionary funding areas in subsequent years.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Native Language Preservation and Maintenance Grant 
Application Template Pilot (Funding Application Submission Tool 
(F.A.S.T. form))
    OMB No.:
    Description: The proposed F.A.S.T. form is intended to be used by 
applicants in the Administration for Native Americans' Native American 
Language Preservation and Maintenance grant competition in FY 2016. The 
F.A.S.T. form is proposed to be piloted as a consolidated and 
streamlined pre-formatted electronic application form that is user-
friendly and has an interactive interface providing structure and 
clarity for applicants. The proposed F.A.S.T. form is not intended to 
replace the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOAs) which will still 
function as the full text of all funding opportunities for which 
applications are sought and considered by the Administration for Native 
Americans.
    The proposed F.A.S.T. form will be used in a pilot capacity in just 
one Administration for Native Americans' discretionary program areas: 
Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance. All applicants 
applying for funding in that program area will be required to use the 
F.A.S.T. form during the pilot competition proposed for FY16 unless 
they request and receive approval to submit a paper application. By 
using the F.A.S.T. form no applicant will be required to provide any 
information beyond what is already required by the FOA. Additionally, 
free training and technical assistance will be available to all 
applicants on use of the F.A.S.T. form.
    ANA intends to use the project proposals submitted via the F.A.S.T. 
form to make funding decisions for Native American Language 
Preservation and Maintenance grant awards made in the FY 2016 pilot 
year. In addition, ANA will solicit feedback from applicants and panel 
reviewers to obtain feedback on the results, outcomes, and their 
recommendations regarding the F.A.S.T. form as a user friendly method 
of applying for funding opportunities. If the pilot is successful in 
making it easier for applicants to apply, ANA will consider potentially 
expanding use of the F.A.S.T. form to all Administration for Native 
Americans' discretionary funding areas in subsequent years.
