SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This information collection was authorized for several years under 
OMB Control Number 1076-0096. In 2005, the information collection was 
discontinued. However, the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) would like 
to reinstate this collection of information for the reasons described 
below.
    The Johnson O'Malley Act (JOM), 25 U.S.C. 455-457, authorizes the 
BIE to enter into contracts for the purpose of financially assisting 
those efforts designed to meet the specialized and unique educational 
needs of eligible Indian students enrolled in public schools and 
previously private schools. The JOM programs offered to American Indian 
and Alaska Native students vary and may include such programs as 
culture, language, academics, and dropout prevention. These include

[[Page 63789]]

programs supplemental to the regular school program and school 
operational support, where such support is necessary to maintain 
established State educational standards.
    The information allows the BIE to obtain the information necessary 
to determine applicant eligibility, evaluate applicant education plans, 
and review annual reports submitted by States, school districts, Indian 
corporations, and Tribal organizations who apply for and enter into 
contracts for the JOM Program. For purposes of this information 
collection, only State, school district, Indian corporations, and 
Tribal organizations are required to submit an application to determine 
eligibility to receive JOM Program funds. Federally recognized Tribes 
who wish to participate in the JOM Program are able to apply for 
funding under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance 
Act Programs, 25 CFR 900, OMB Control Number 1076-0136.
    The regulations at 25 CFR 273, Johnson O'Malley Act, implement the 
Act. The information collected is subject to the system of records 
notice ``Native American Student Information System, BIA-22'' 
referenced as 73 FR 40605 dated July 15, 2008. The burden hours for 
this new collection of information are reflected in the Estimated Total 
Annual Hour Burden in this notice.

II. Request for Comments

    The BIE requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) 
The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance 
of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including 
the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before
