Further information on EDA’s program and grant opportunities can be found at www.eda.gov. In order to effectively administer and monitor its economic development assistance programs, and to comply with the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA; Pub. L. 103–62), EDA must collect specific data from its grant recipients to report on the Agency’s performance in meeting its stated goals and objectives. The purpose of this notice is to seek comments from the public and other Federal agencies on a request for an extension of EDA’s currently approved GPRA collection forms which are scheduled to expire on November 30, 2017. II.

None of these minor edits are expected to increase the time burden on the respondent nor do the modifications change the type or amount of collected information. I. Abstract III.

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD 
investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department 
initiated the investigation. However, if the petitioner makes a timely 
request for a postponement, section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act allows the 
Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no 
later than 130 days after the date on which the Department initiated 
the investigation.
    On May 4, 2017, the petitioners \2\ submitted a timely request 
pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e) to 
postpone the preliminary determination.\3\ For the reasons stated above 
and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, the 
Department, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is 
postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later 
than 130 days after the day on which the investigation was initiated. 
Accordingly, the Department will issue the preliminary determination no 
later than August 5, 2017. However, because August 5, 2017, falls on a 
Saturday, the preliminary determination is now due no later than August 
7, 2017.\4\ In accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of this 
investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the 
preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date.
