Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This program helps to ensure 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 requirements can be properly assessed. Each year, the Department of Labor/ Employment and Training Administration is appropriated funds for youthful offender demonstration projects. The Department of Labor uses these funds for a variety of multi-site demonstrations aimed at developing model programs for serving young offenders. The Department expects over the next few years to award 28 new Youthful Offender grants in various sets of demonstrations each year for two years of operation and up to one year of follow-up services and post-placement data collection. In any given year this will result in 28 grants in their first year of operation, 28 grants in their second year of operation, and 28 grants providing follow-up services and tracking post-placement outcomes, for a total of 84 grants collecting data each year. This data collection request is to permit the Department of Labor to continue with revisions a management information system for these various sets of grantees. This request includes the collection of data by grantees on participant characteristics, services provided, and participant outcomes; the quarterly progress report submitted by grantees, the quarterly narrative report, and the annual recidivism report. This SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23751 request continues a reporting and recordkeeping system for a minimum level of information collection that is necessary to comply with Equal Opportunity requirements, to hold Youthful Offender grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, including performance measures, and to allow the Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities. Revisions include adding questions on immigration status, welfare receipt, mental health treatment, and child support obligations to the data collected at intake; inserting several additional outcomes and clarifying some of the reporting items in the quarterly progress report; and broadening the recidivism survey to cover young adult offenders as well as juvenile offenders and to allow it to be filled out by the adult criminal justice system for young adult offenders. This request also adds the quarterly narrative report to be submitted by grantees. Burden hours for the quarterly narrative report were included in the supporting statement three years ago, but the report was left out of the final approval. This request also adds burden hours not included in the request three years ago for the time spent by grantees generating, reviewing, and correcting errors in the quarterly progress reports; increases the average burden to participants for the collection of intake data; and reduces the average burden hours from 30 to 16 for grantees to complete the quarterly narrative reports to make it consistent with the average hours approved for the quarterly narrative reports of similar Division of Youth services programs. Section 185 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act authorizes the collection of data from grantees on the demographic characteristics of participants, activities provided, and program outcomes. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 
consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies 
an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This 
program helps to ensure 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 requirements can be properly assessed.
    Each year, the Department of Labor/Employment and Training 
Administration is appropriated funds for youthful offender 
demonstration projects. The Department of Labor uses these funds for a 
variety of multi-site demonstrations aimed at developing model programs 
for serving young offenders. The Department expects over the next few 
years to award 28 new Youthful Offender grants in various sets of 
demonstrations each year for two years of operation and up to one year 
of follow-up services and post-placement data collection. In any given 
year this will result in 28 grants in their first year of operation, 28 
grants in their second year of operation, and 28 grants providing 
follow-up services and tracking post-placement outcomes, for a total of 
84 grants collecting data each year.
    This data collection request is to permit the Department of Labor 
to continue with revisions a management information system for these 
various sets of grantees. This request includes the collection of data 
by grantees on participant characteristics, services provided, and 
participant outcomes; the quarterly progress report submitted by 
grantees, the quarterly narrative report, and the annual recidivism 
report. This request continues a reporting and recordkeeping system for 
a minimum level of information collection that is necessary to comply 
with Equal Opportunity requirements, to hold Youthful Offender grantees 
appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, including 
performance measures, and to allow the Department to fulfill its 
oversight and management responsibilities.
    Revisions include adding questions on immigration status, welfare 
receipt, mental health treatment, and child support obligations to the 
data collected at intake; inserting several additional outcomes and 
clarifying some of the reporting items in the quarterly progress 
report; and broadening the recidivism survey to cover young adult 
offenders as well as juvenile offenders and to allow it to be filled 
out by the adult criminal justice system for young adult offenders. 
This request also adds the quarterly narrative report to be submitted 
by grantees. Burden hours for the quarterly narrative report were 
included in the supporting statement three years ago, but the report 
was left out of the final approval. This request also adds burden hours 
not included in the request three years ago for the time spent by 
grantees generating, reviewing, and correcting errors in the quarterly 
progress reports; increases the average burden to participants for the 
collection of intake data; and reduces the average burden hours from 30 
to 16 for grantees to complete the quarterly narrative reports to make 
it consistent with the average hours approved for the quarterly 
narrative reports of similar Division of Youth services programs.
    Section 185 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act 
authorizes the collection of data from grantees on the demographic 
characteristics of participants, activities provided, and program 
outcomes. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal 
agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, 
and the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the
