SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to

understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
assessed.
    This ICR seeks to extend PRA authorization for the

certain DOL Federal financial assistance programs does not discriminate 
in the administration, management, or operation of programs and

grant applicant providing assurance that the applicant is aware of and, 
as a condition of receipt of Federal financial assistance, agrees to

Civil Rights Center; (4) a State periodically filing a plan outlining 
administrative methods the State will use to ensure funds are not used 
in a discriminatory manner; and (5) a DOL funds recipient posting 
required notices.

generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and
