Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: Consolidated State Plan. OMB Control Number: 1810–0576. Type of Review: A revision to an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 52. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 108,155. Abstract: Section 8302 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), permits each SEA, in consultation with the Governor, to apply for program funds through submission of a consolidated State plan or a consolidated State application (in lieu of individual program State plans). The purpose of consolidated State plans as defined in ESEA is to improve teaching and learning by encouraging greater crossprogram coordination, planning, and service delivery; to enhance program integration; and to provide greater flexibility and less burden for State educational agencies. Additional Information: This is a request for an emergency clearance to enable Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) to collect critical information for the Consolidated State Plan, the instrument through which State educational agencies (SEAs) apply for funding under the following programs: Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) Title I, Part A Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies Title I, Part B, Section 1201 Grants for State Assessments and Related Activities Title I, Part C Education of Migratory Children Title I, Part D Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk Title II, Part A Supporting Effective Instruction Title III, Part A English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement Title IV, Part A Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants Title IV, Part B 21st Century Community Learning Centers VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Mar 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 Title VI, Part B, Subpart 2: Rural and Low-Income School Program McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987 Title VII, Subtitle B Education for Homeless Children and Youths Program On December 10, 2015, the programs above were reauthorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). On November 29, 2016, the Department received information collection clearance approval for a Consolidated State Plan aligned to the Notice of Final Regulations for Accountability and State Plans published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 86076. Congress is currently considering a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801–808) to overturn these regulations. If a resolution of disapproval is enacted, these regulations ‘‘shall have no force or effect.’’ Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.13, the Department requests that OMB review this collection under its emergency procedures. This request for emergency clearance is based on two factors: (1) The joint resolution of disapproval under the CRA presents an unanticipated event beyond the Department’s control; and (2) further uncertainty of the requirements for submission of consolidated State plans would prevent States from implementing the new ESSA requirements in school year 2017–2018. Section 8302 of the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, permits each SEA, in consultation with the Governor, to apply for program funds through submission of a consolidated State plan (in lieu of individual program State plans). The purpose of Consolidated State Plans as defined in ESEA is to improve teaching and learning by encouraging greater cross-program coordination, planning, and service delivery; to enhance program integration; and to provide greater flexibility and less burden for SEAs. The Department will use the information from the Consolidated State Plan as the basis for approving funding under the included programs for the duration of the reauthorization. Failure to collect this information in a timely manner will bar the Department from receiving the comprehensive data and information that is necessary to fulfill its fiduciary and oversight responsibilities, and endanger the missions of the individual programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Under the Comprehensive Centers program, the Department of Education (Department) supports grants to operate regional technical assistance centers and national content centers as authorized by sections 203 through 207 of the Educational Technical Assistance Act of 2002 (ETAA) (20 U.S.C. 9602–9606). The purpose of these centers is to provide technical assistance to States as States work to help local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools close achievement gaps in core content areas and raise student achievement in schools. Eligible applicants for Comprehensive Center grants are research organizations, institutions, agencies, institutions of higher education, partnerships among these types of entities, or individuals with the demonstrated ability or capacity to carry out the activities described in the notice inviting applications published in the Federal Register on June 6, 2012 (77 FR 33564) E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 47 / Monday, March 13, 2017 / Notices (2012 NIA) and corrected on August 15, 2012 (77 FR 48974). In FY 2012, the Department made five-year awards to 22 Comprehensive Centers. The project period for these Comprehensive Centers is currently scheduled to end on September 30, 2017. On January 9, 2017, the Department published a notice in the Federal Register (82 FR 2335) (January 2017 notice) proposing waivers of the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250(a) and 34 CFR 75.261(c)(2) (proposed waivers). Respectively, these provisions generally prohibit project periods exceeding five years and project period extensions involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. Waiving these provisions will enable the Secretary to provide additional funds to the 22 Comprehensive Center grantees for up to 24 months, from October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2019. The January 2017 notice also invited public comment on the proposed waivers. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Public Comment No parties submitted comments regarding the proposed waivers. There are no differences between the proposed and the final waivers. Final Waivers In the January 2017 notice, we discussed the background and purposes of the Comprehensive Centers program and our reasons for proposing the waivers. As outlined in that notice, it would not be in the public interest to hold a new competition under the Comprehensive Centers program until after the Department has finalized its guidance on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and until all the new statutory requirements under the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, have gone into effect. One of the primary purposes of the Comprehensive Centers program is to help States, LEAs, and schools implement key school improvement provisions of the ESEA. Delaying the competition until after the Department and States have begun to implement the new provisions under the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, would allow applicants to familiarize themselves with the new statutory requirements and submit proposals that will best serve States under the new law. In addition, it would be contrary to the public interest to have a lapse in Comprehensive Centers’ services pending the implementation of new provisions of the ESSA. Implementing these waivers will ensure that the important services provided by the current Comprehensive Centers can VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Mar 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 continue uninterrupted as States transition to the ESSA. The Secretary waives the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250(a), which prohibit project periods exceeding five years, and the requirements in 34 CFR 75.261(c)(2), which limit the extension of a project period if the extension involves the obligation of additional Federal funds. Under these waivers— (1) Current grantees are authorized to receive continuation awards annually for up to two fiscal years. (2) The Department will not announce a new competition or make new awards under the Comprehensive Centers program in FY 2017. (3) During the extension period, any activities carried out must be consistent with, or be a logical extension of, the scope, goals, and objectives of the grantees’ approved applications from the 2012 Comprehensive Centers competition. (4) Each grantee that receives a continuation award must also continue to comply with the requirements established in the program regulations and the 2012 NIA (77 FR 33564). The waivers of 34 CFR 75.250(a) and 75.261(c)(2) do not affect the applicability of the requirements in 34 CFR 75.253 (continuation of a multiyear project after the first budget period) to any current Comprehensive Centers grantee that receives a continuation award as a result of the waivers. In addition, these waivers do not exempt current Comprehensive Centers grantees from the account-closing provisions in 31 U.S.C. 1552(a), nor do they extend the availability of funds previously awarded to current Comprehensive Centers grantees. Under 31 U.S.C. 1552(a), appropriated funds may be used for payment of valid obligations for only five years after the expiration of their period of availability for Federal obligation. After that time, the unexpended balance of those funds is canceled and returned to the U.S. Treasury Department and is unavailable for restoration for any purpose. These waivers do not change this requirement. Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification The Secretary certifies that these waivers will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The small entities that will be affected are: (a) The FY 2012 grantees currently receiving Federal funds; and (b) The entities that are eligible for an award under the Comprehensive Centers program (i.e., eligible applicants as described in the 2012 NIA). PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13453 The Secretary certifies that the waivers will not have a significant economic impact on these entities because the waivers and the activities required to support the additional years of funding impose minimal compliance costs to extend projects already in existence, and the activities required to support the additional year of funding will not impose additional regulatory burdens or require unnecessary Federal supervision. The waivers will impose minimal requirements to ensure the proper expenditure of program funds, including requirements that are standard for continuation awards. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 These waivers do not contain any information collection requirements. Intergovernmental Review This program is subject to Executive Order 12372 and the regulations in 34 CFR part 79.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under the Comprehensive Centers program, the Department of 
Education (Department) supports grants to operate regional technical 
assistance centers and national content centers as authorized by 
sections 203 through 207 of the Educational Technical Assistance Act of 
2002 (ETAA) (20 U.S.C. 9602-9606). The purpose of these centers is to 
provide technical assistance to States as States work to help local 
educational agencies (LEAs) and schools close achievement gaps in core 
content areas and raise student achievement in schools.
    Eligible applicants for Comprehensive Center grants are research 
organizations, institutions, agencies, institutions of higher 
education, partnerships among these types of entities, or individuals 
with the demonstrated ability or capacity to carry out the activities 
described in the notice inviting applications published in the Federal 
Register on June 6, 2012 (77 FR 33564)

[[Page 13453]]

(2012 NIA) and corrected on August 15, 2012 (77 FR 48974). In FY 2012, 
the Department made five-year awards to 22 Comprehensive Centers. The 
project period for these Comprehensive Centers is currently scheduled 
to end on September 30, 2017.
    On January 9, 2017, the Department published a notice in the 
Federal Register (82 FR 2335) (January 2017 notice) proposing waivers 
of the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250(a) and 34 CFR 75.261(c)(2) 
(proposed waivers). Respectively, these provisions generally prohibit 
project periods exceeding five years and project period extensions 
involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. Waiving these 
provisions will enable the Secretary to provide additional funds to the 
22 Comprehensive Center grantees for up to 24 months, from October 1, 
2017, through September 30, 2019. The January 2017 notice also invited 
public comment on the proposed waivers.

Public Comment

    No parties submitted comments regarding the proposed waivers. There 
are no differences between the proposed and the final waivers.

Final Waivers

    In the January 2017 notice, we discussed the background and 
purposes of the Comprehensive Centers program and our reasons for 
proposing the waivers. As outlined in that notice, it would not be in 
the public interest to hold a new competition under the Comprehensive 
Centers program until after the Department has finalized its guidance 
on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as 
amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and until all the new 
statutory requirements under the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, have 
gone into effect. One of the primary purposes of the Comprehensive 
Centers program is to help States, LEAs, and schools implement key 
school improvement provisions of the ESEA. Delaying the competition 
until after the Department and States have begun to implement the new 
provisions under the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, would allow 
applicants to familiarize themselves with the new statutory 
requirements and submit proposals that will best serve States under the 
new law. In addition, it would be contrary to the public interest to 
have a lapse in Comprehensive Centers' services pending the 
implementation of new provisions of the ESSA. Implementing these 
waivers will ensure that the important services provided by the current 
Comprehensive Centers can continue uninterrupted as States transition 
to the ESSA.
    The Secretary waives the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250(a), which 
prohibit project periods exceeding five years, and the requirements in 
34 CFR 75.261(c)(2), which limit the extension of a project period if 
the extension involves the obligation of additional Federal funds.
    Under these waivers--
    (1) Current grantees are authorized to receive continuation awards 
annually for up to two fiscal years.
    (2) The Department will not announce a new competition or make new 
awards under the Comprehensive Centers program in FY 2017.
    (3) During the extension period, any activities carried out must be 
consistent with, or be a logical extension of, the scope, goals, and 
objectives of the grantees' approved applications from the 2012 
Comprehensive Centers competition.
    (4) Each grantee that receives a continuation award must also 
continue to comply with the requirements established in the program 
regulations and the 2012 NIA (77 FR 33564).
    The waivers of 34 CFR 75.250(a) and 75.261(c)(2) do not affect the 
applicability of the requirements in 34 CFR 75.253 (continuation of a 
multi-year project after the first budget period) to any current 
Comprehensive Centers grantee that receives a continuation award as a 
result of the waivers.
    In addition, these waivers do not exempt current Comprehensive 
Centers grantees from the account-closing provisions in 31 U.S.C. 
1552(a), nor do they extend the availability of funds previously 
awarded to current Comprehensive Centers grantees. Under 31 U.S.C. 
1552(a), appropriated funds may be used for payment of valid 
obligations for only five years after the expiration of their period of 
availability for Federal obligation. After that time, the unexpended 
balance of those funds is canceled and returned to the U.S. Treasury 
Department and is unavailable for restoration for any purpose. These 
waivers do not change this requirement.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

    The Secretary certifies that these waivers will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
The small entities that will be affected are:
    (a) The FY 2012 grantees currently receiving Federal funds; and
    (b) The entities that are eligible for an award under the 
Comprehensive Centers program (i.e., eligible applicants as described 
in the 2012 NIA).
    The Secretary certifies that the waivers will not have a 
significant economic impact on these entities because the waivers and 
the activities required to support the additional years of funding 
impose minimal compliance costs to extend projects already in 
existence, and the activities required to support the additional year 
of funding will not impose additional regulatory burdens or require 
unnecessary Federal supervision. The waivers will impose minimal 
requirements to ensure the proper expenditure of program funds, 
including requirements that are standard for continuation awards.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    These waivers do not contain any information collection 
requirements.

Intergovernmental Review

    This program is subject to Executive Order 12372 and the 
regulations in 34 CFR part 79. One of the objectives of the Executive 
order is to foster an intergovernmental partnership and a strengthened 
federalism. The Executive order relies on processes developed by State 
and local governments for coordination and review of Federal financial 
assistance. This document provides notification of our specific plans 
and actions for this program.
