It is not anticipated that these revisions will cause any additional burden to states as they have been completing the automated plan for three years. It is anticipated that the burden will continue to diminish in subsequent years due to improved prepopulation and automation. In addition to the CSBG State Plan, states will be requested to complete a CSBG Eligible Entity Master List in year one, and then make updates as necessary in subsequent years. As the states have the information about their eligible entities (or sub-grantees), the burden will be minimal to the states to complete this the first year.

    OMB No.: 0970-0382.
    Description: Section 676 of the Community Services Block Grant

[[Page 11754]]

(CSBG) Act requires states, including the District of Columbia and the 
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories applying for CSBG 
funds to submit an application and plan (CSBG State Plan). The CSBG 
State Plan must meet statutory requirements prior to states and 
territories being funded with CSBG funds. Applicants have the option to 
submit a detailed plan annually or biannually. Entities that submit a 
biannual plan must provide an abbreviated plan the following year if 
substantial changes to the initial plan will occur.
    This request is to revise the automated CSBG State Plan format for 
states and territories by revising questions for clarity and system 
compatibility. It is not anticipated that these revisions will cause 
any additional burden to states as they have been completing the 
automated plan for three years. It is anticipated that the burden will 
continue to diminish in subsequent years due to improved pre-population 
and automation.
    In addition to the CSBG State Plan, states will be requested to 
complete a CSBG Eligible Entity Master List in year one, and then make 
updates as necessary in subsequent years. As the states have the 
information about their eligible entities (or sub-grantees), the burden 
will be minimal to the states to complete this the first year.
    Lastly, the request includes a survey for the CSBG eligible 
entities (or sub-grantees). The survey focuses on the customer service 
that the eligible entities receive from the CSBG states. The survey is 
optional, and this will be the third time that the eligible entities 
that chose to submit will complete it.
    Respondents: State Governments, including the District of Columbia 
and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories, and local 
level sub-grantees.
