I. Abstract

    The mission of EDA is to lead the federal economic development 
agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American 
regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy. EDA 
accomplishes this mission by helping our partners across the nation, 
including states, regions, and communities create wealth and minimize 
poverty by promoting a favorable business environment to attract 
private capital investment and jobs through world-class capacity 
building, planning, infrastructure, research grants, and strategic 
initiatives. 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.

collected via the ED-916; University Centers are required to report on 
the ED-917; and, Trade Adjustment Assistance Centers are required to 
fill out a ED-918) that ask respondents to report on items such as the 
number of jobs created and retained as well as the private investment 
generated per EDA investment. Respondents are required to submit the 
applicable form to the EDA Regional Office for compilation and 
transmission to EDA headquarters.
    As a part of this renewal process, EDA plans to make minor 
clarifying edits to some of the questions on the ED-916, ED-917, and 
ED-918 and to the instruction sections of the ED-915, ED-916, and ED-
917. 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.
