[FR Doc. 2016–13289 Filed 6–3–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4120–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request Proposed Projects Title: Head Start Performance Standards. OMB No.: 0970–0148. Description: Please note that this submission does not reflect proposed changes in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making to update Head Start program performance standards published on June 15, 2015. ACF is only requesting for an extension without change of a currently approved collection. Head Start Performance Standards are the result of a legislative mandate to administer a high quality comprehensive child development program that serves low-income pregnant women, infants and toddlers, preschoolers and their families. The information collection aspects of the Performance Standards are a part of the many actions that local agencies must take to ensure they administer quality programs for Head Start children and families. The information collection items included in the Performance Standards are almost entirely recordkeeping requirements for local Head Start programs; these records are intended to act as a tool for grantees and delegate agencies to be used in their day-to-day operations. Such records are maintained by the grantees and delegate agencies and are not part of a standard information collection submitted to the Federal government. Local programs are monitored for overall compliance with the Performance Standards, including the record-keeping aspects. Respondents: Head Start and Early Head Start program grant recipients.

Cost per respondent is $10,290.64 estimated at 16 responses × 41.9 hours × $15.35 per hour. Monetary costs associated with information collection requirements for Head Start are the salaries of the staff performing the duties. These costs are assumed by the Federal Government through the provision of program operating costs. In compliance with the requirements of Section 506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above. Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation, 370 L’Enfant Promenade SW., Washington, DC 20447, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. Email address: infocollection@ acf.hhs.gov. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. The Department specifically requests comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Jun 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

No subgrantees or other entities may apply for these funds. Section 2607(b)(1) of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Act (the Act), (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(1)) requires that, if the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determines that, as of September 1 of any fiscal year, an amount in excess of 10 percent of the amount awarded to a grantee for that fiscal year (excluding Leveraging, REACH, and reallotted funds) will not be used by the grantee during that fiscal year, then the Secretary must notify the grantee and publish a notice in the Federal Register that such funds may be reallotted to LIHEAP grantees during the following fiscal year. If reallotted, the LIHEAP block grant allocation formula will be used to distribute the funds. No funds may be allotted to entities that are not direct LIHEAP grantees during FY 2016.

It has been determined that approximately $1,230,022 in LIHEAP funds may be available for reallotment during FY 2016. This determination is based on FY 2015 Carryover and Reallotment Reports that showed that seven grantees reported reallotment funds (Tennessee, Puerto Rico, Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Eastern Shoshone Tribe, Passmaquoddy Tribe at Pleasant Point, Poarch Band of Creek Indians, and The Klamath Tribes). Grantees submitted the FY 2015 Carryover and Reallotment Reports to the Office of Community Services (OCS), as required by regulations applicable to LIHEAP at 45 CFR 96.82. This amount, however, may increase because, as of April 1, 2016, the report for 68 grantees remains pending. The statute allows grantees who have funds unobligated at the end of the federal fiscal year for which they are awarded to request that they be allowed to carry over up to 10 percent of their allotments to the next federal fiscal year. Funds in excess of this amount must be returned to HHS and are subject to reallotment under section 2607(b)(1) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(1)). The amount described in this notice was reported as unobligated FY 2015 funds in excess of the amount that these grantees could carry over to FY 2016. OCS contacted each of the grantees to confirm that the FY 2015 funds indicated in the chart may be reallotted. In accordance with section 2607(b)(3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(3)), comments will be accepted for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of this notice. After considering any comments submitted, the Chief Executive Officers of LIHEAP grantees will be notified of the final reallotment amount. This decision will be published in the Federal Register. If funds are reallotted, they will be allocated in accordance with section 2604 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8623) and must be treated by LIHEAP grantees receiving them as an amount appropriated for FY 2016. As FY 2016 funds, they will be subject to all requirements of the Act, including section 2607(b)(2) (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(2)), which requires that a grantee obligate at least 90 percent of its total block grant allocation for a fiscal year by the end of the fiscal year for which the funds are appropriated, that is, by September 30, 2016. sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:02 Jun 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 51, Rm. 6366, Silver Spring, MD 20993–0002, 301– FY 2015 reallotment 796–3601. amount SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the $271,910 Federal Register of Tuesday, October 818,566 13, 2015, appearing on page 61426 in FR Doc. 2015–25922, the following 9,025 correction is made: 37,413 On page 61426, in table 1, the entries for NDAs 016096 and 016097 are 33,602 50,978 removed.

ACTION: Notice; correction. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a notice that appeared in the Federal Register of October 13, 2015 (80 FR 61426). The document announced the withdrawal of approval of 67 new drug applications (NDAs) and 128 abbreviated new drug applications from multiple applicants, effective November 12, 2015. The document indicated that FDA was withdrawing approval of the following two NDAs after receiving a request from the NDA holder, Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. (Merck), 1 Merck Dr., P.O. Box 100, Whitehouse Station, NJ 08889: NDA 016096, MINTEZOL (thiabendazole) Tablets, and NDA 016097, MINTEZOL (thiabendazole) Oral Suspension. Before withdrawal of these NDAs became effective, Merck informed FDA that it did not want approval of the NDAs withdrawn. Because Merck timely requested that approval of these NDAs not be withdrawn, the approval of NDAs 016096 and 016097 is still in effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that approximately 
$1,230,022 in LIHEAP funds may be available for reallotment during FY 
2016. This determination is based on FY 2015 Carryover and Reallotment 
Reports that showed that seven grantees reported reallotment funds 
(Tennessee, Puerto Rico, Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Eastern 
Shoshone Tribe, Passmaquoddy Tribe at Pleasant Point, Poarch Band of 
Creek Indians, and The Klamath Tribes). Grantees submitted the FY 2015 
Carryover and Reallotment Reports to the Office of Community Services 
(OCS), as required by regulations applicable to LIHEAP at 45 CFR 96.82. 
This amount, however, may increase because, as of April 1, 2016, the 
report for 68 grantees remains pending.
    The statute allows grantees who have funds unobligated at the end 
of the federal fiscal year for which they are awarded to request that 
they be allowed to carry over up to 10 percent of their allotments to 
the next federal fiscal year. Funds in excess of this amount must be 
returned to HHS and are subject to reallotment under section 2607(b)(1) 
of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(1)). The amount described in this notice 
was reported as unobligated FY 2015 funds in excess of the amount that 
these grantees could carry over to FY 2016.
    OCS contacted each of the grantees to confirm that the FY 2015 
funds indicated in the chart may be reallotted. In accordance with 
section 2607(b)(3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(3)), comments will be 
accepted for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of this 
notice.
    After considering any comments submitted, the Chief Executive 
Officers of LIHEAP grantees will be notified of the final reallotment 
amount. This decision will be published in the Federal Register.
    If funds are reallotted, they will be allocated in accordance with 
section 2604 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8623) and must be treated by LIHEAP 
grantees receiving them as an amount appropriated for FY 2016. As FY 
2016 funds, they will be subject to all requirements of the Act, 
including section 2607(b)(2) (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(2)), which requires 
that a grantee obligate at least 90 percent of its total block grant 
allocation for a fiscal year by the end of the fiscal year for which 
the funds are appropriated, that is, by September 30, 2016.
