Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 36,673. Abstract: The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program is a non-need-based grant program that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who are enrolled in an eligible program and who agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-income elementary or secondary school for at least four years within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant was awarded. The TEACH Grant program regulations are required to ensure accountability of the program participants, both institutions and student recipients, for proper program administration, to determine eligibility to receive program benefits and to prevent fraud and abuse of program funds. The regulations include both record-keeping and reporting requirements. The record-keeping by the school allows for review of compliance with the regulation during on-site institutional reviews. The Department uses the required reporting to allow for close-out of institutions that are no longer participating or who lose eligibility to participate in the program. Dated: November 7, 2017.

ACTION: Notice of public meeting. AGENCY: The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will host a public meeting via WebEx December 11, 2017, of the Supercritical CO2 Oxycombustion Technology Group, to address challenges associated with oxycombustion systems in directly heated supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles. DATES: The public meeting will be held on December 11, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ADDRESSES: The public meeting will be held via WebEx and hosted by NETL. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 09, 2017 Jkt 244001 For further information regarding the public meeting, please contact Seth Lawson or Walter Perry at NETL by telephone at (304) 285–4469, by email at Seth.Lawson@netl.doe.gov, Walter.Perry@netl.doe.gov, or by postal mail addressed to National Energy Technology Laboratory, 3610 Collins Ferry Road, P.O. Box 880, Morgantown, WV 26507–0880. Please direct all media inquiries to the NETL Public Affairs Officer at (304) 285–0228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Instructions and Information on the Public Meeting The public meeting will be held via WebEx. The public meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. Agenda details will be available prior to the meeting on the NETL Web site, https://www.netl.doe.gov/events/sco2tech-group. Interested parties may RSVP, to confirm their participation and receive login instructions, by emailing Seth.Lawson@netl.doe.gov. The objective of the Supercritical CO2 Oxy-combustion Technology Group is to promote a technical understanding of oxy-combustion for direct-fired sCO2 power cycles by sharing information or viewpoints from individual participants regarding risk reduction and challenges associated with developing the technology. Oxy-combustion systems in directly heated supercritical CO2 (SCO2) power cycles utilize natural gas or syngas oxycombustion systems to produce a high temperature SCO2 working fluid and have the potential to be efficient, cost effective and well-suited for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture. To realize the benefits of direct fired SCO2 power cycles, the following challenges must be addressed: Chemical kinetic uncertainties, combustion instability, flowpath design, thermal management, pressure containment, definition/ prediction of turbine inlet conditions, ignition, off-design operation, transient capabilities, in-situ flame monitoring, and modeling, among others. The format of the meeting will facilitate equal opportunity for discussion among all participants; all participants will be welcome to speak. Following a detailed presentation by one volunteer participant regarding lessons learned from his or her area of research, other participants will be provided the opportunity to briefly share lessons learned from their own research. Meetings are expected to take place every other month with a different volunteer presenting at each meeting. Meeting minutes shall be published for those who are unable to attend. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This meeting is considered ‘‘open-tothe-public;’’ the purpose for this meeting has been examined during the planning stages, and NETL management has made specific determinations that affect attendance.
