Food and Nutrition Service Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Employment and Training (E & T) Program Activity Report (Request for Additional Funds and Recordkeeping Burden). OMB Control Number: 0584–0339. Summary of Collection: The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (Public Law 105–33) modified the Employment and Training (E&T) Program so that States’ efforts are now focused on a particular segment of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) population –ablebodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs). Requests for Additional E&T Funds: 7 CFR 273.7(d)(1)(i)(D) provides that if a State agency will not expend all of the funds allocated to it for a fiscal year, FNS will reallocate unexpended funds to other State agencies during the fiscal year or the subsequent fiscal year as FNS considers appropriate and equitable. After FNS makes initial E&T allocations, under 7 CFR 273.7(d)(1)(i)(F), State agencies may request additional E&T funds if needed. FNS will reallocate available funds (e.g., funds that are unallocated or funds that are allocated but will not be spent) in a fair and equitable manner. Retention and Custody of Records. Under 7 CFR 277.12 (1) and (2), all financial records, supporting documents, statistical records, negotiated contracts, and all other records pertinent to program funds shall be maintained for three years from the date of submission of the annual financial status report or if any litigation, claim, or audit is started before the expiration of the three-year period, the applicable records shall be retained until these have been resolved. Need and Use of the Information: FNS will review requests about their E&T programs so that the Department can monitor State performance to ensure that the program is being efficiently and economically operated. Without the information, FNS would be unable to make adjustments or allocate exemptions in accordance with the statute. Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government.
