An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number and the agency informs potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information that such persons are not required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Food and Nutrition Service Title: 7 CFR part 245, Determining Eligibility for Free and Reduced Price Meals and Free Milk in Schools. OMB Control Number: 0584–0026. Summary of Collection: The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA), as amended, authorizes the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Section 9, Paragraph 9(b) of the NSLA provides that the income guidelines for determining eligibility for free school meals must be 130 percent, and reduced price school meals must be 185 percent, of the applicable family size income levels contained in the non-farm income poverty guidelines prescribed by the Office of Management and Budget, as adjusted annually. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 7 CFR part 245, Determining Eligibility for Free and Reduced Price Meals and Free Milk in Schools, sets forth policies and procedures for implementing these provisions. These federal regulations require schools operating the NSLP to determine children’s eligibility for free and reduced-price meals on the basis of each child’s household income and size, and to establish operating procedures that will prevent physical segregation, or other discrimination against, or overt identification of children unable to pay the full price for meals or milk. Section 104 of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 added section 9(b)(4) to the NSLA (42 U.S.C. 1758(b)(4)) to require school food authorities to directly certify, without further application, any child who is a member of a household receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Need and Use of the Information: FNS will collect information to determine eligibility of children for free and reduced price meals and for free milk and to assure that there is no physical VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:08 Apr 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 segregation of, or other discrimination against, or overt identification of children unable to pay the full price for meals or milk.

Food Nutrition Service Title: Regional Office Administered Program (ROAP) Child Nutrition Payment Center (for the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs). OMB Control Number: 0584–0284. Summary of Collection: Section 5 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 [U.S.C. 1774] specifies that if the Secretary of Agriculture is administering (in whole or in part) any program authorized under this Act, the State in which the Secretary is administering the program may, upon request to the Secretary, assume administration of that program. If a State educational agency is not permitted by law to disburse the funds paid to it under this Act to any of the nonpublic schools in the State, the Secretary shall disburse the funds directly to such schools within the State for the same purposes and subject to the same conditions as are authorized or required with respect to the disbursements to public schools within the State by the State educational agency. In States where the FNS Regional Office administers the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs as a Regional Office Administered Program (ROAP), school food authorities (SFAs) or local institutions must submit the monthly claim for reimbursement data to the Regional Office for processing to receive reimbursement. Need and Use of the Information: The information is collected electronically from school food authorities that participate in the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs that are administered directly by the associated USDA FNS Regional Office as a ROAP. The ROAP system is used to collect application and meal count information which is used to process claims for reimbursement. The application information is collected annually, while the meal count information is collected monthly. Description of Respondents: State, Local or Tribal Government. Number of Respondents: 60.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Secure Rural Schools Act. OMB Number: 0596–0220. Expiration Date of Approval: June 30, 2016. Type of Request: Extension. Abstract: The Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000 (the Act) (16 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.), as reauthorized in Public Law 110–343 and Public Law 112–141, requires the appropriate official of a county that receives funds under Title III of the Act to submit to the appropriate Secretary an annual certification that the funds expended have been used as authorized under section 302(a) of the Act. The appropriate official of each participating county will be requested to report the amount of Title III funds expended in the applicable year in these categories as specified in the Act: (1) To carry out authorized activities under the Firewise Communities Program; (2) To reimburse the participating county for emergency services performed on Federal land and paid for by the participating county; and (3) To develop community wildfire protection plans in coordination with the appropriate Secretary. The information collection will identify the participating county, the year in which the expenditures were made, the name, title, and signature of the certifying official; and the date of the certification. The certification will include a statement that all expenditures were for uses authorized under section 302(a) of the Act and that the proposed uses were published and had a 45-day comment period and were submitted to the appropriate Secure PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24561 Rural Schools Act resource advisory committee(s), if any, as described in Section 302(b) of the Act. Beginning with the certification due on February 1, 2013, the information collection also will request the county to certify the amount of Title III funds received since October of 2008 that has not been obligated as of September 30th of the previous year. This collection is necessary in the certification due on February 1, 2014, to determine the amount of Title III funds that must be returned to the United States Treasury under section 304(b) of the Act. Collection of this information in 2013 is consistent with a recent audit of county uses of Title III funds by the Government Accountability Office (http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-12775). A county’s procedure for and documentation of its obligation of title III funds should be consistent with its procedures to obligate funds from other Federal sources. In summary, the February 1, 2013, information collection will certify Title III funds expended in calendar year 2012, and the amount of Title III funds not obligated as of September 30, 2012. The February 1, 2014, information collection will certify Title III funds expended in calendar year 2013 and the amount of Title III funds not obligated as of September 30, 2013. The determination of who is the appropriate certifying official is at the discretion of the county and borough and will vary depending on county or borough organization. For unorganized boroughs in Alaska and for participating counties in Vermont, a state official may provide the information. The information will be collected in the form of conventional correspondence such as a letter and, at the respondent’s option, attached tables or similar graphic display. The Forest Service provides an optional form for the convenience of respondents. At the respondent’s discretion, the information may be submitted by hard copy and/or electronically scanned and included as an attachment to electronic mail. Under the Act, the first response was required by February 1, 2010 for funds expended in 2009. Responses are required by February 1st of the following year each year Title III funds are expended. The Act requires Title III funds to be obligated by September 30, 2018, or be returned to the U.S. Treasury; therefore, the funds are likely to be expended or returned in 2014 and the final certification of expenditures could be made by February 1, 2019. The Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management are also authorized to participate in this E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1
