    Title of Collection: Formula Grant EASIE Annual Performance Report.
    OMB Control Number: 1810-0726.
    Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,300.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 14,300.
    Abstract: The purpose of Indian Education Formula Grant to Local 
Agencies, as authorized under section 6116 of the Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student 
Succeeds Act (ESSA) is to assist grantees to provide Indian students 
with the opportunity to meet the same challenging state standards as 
all other students and meet the unique educational and culturally 
related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. 
The Indian Education Formula Grant (CFDA 84.060A), is neither 
competitive nor discretionary and requires the annual submission of the 
application from either a local education agency, tribe, Indian 
organization or Indian community based organization. The amount of the 
award for each applicant is determined by a formula based on the 
reported number of American Indian/Alaska Native students identified in 
the application, the state per pupil expenditure, and the total 
appropriation available. The Office of Indian Education of The 
Department of Education collects annual performance data within the 
same system that collects the annual application. The application and 
the annual performance report are both housed in the Education Data 
Exchange Network (EDEN) Submission System. The 524B Annual Performance 
Report (APR) was designed for discretionary grants, however the title 
VI program is a formula grant program. The EASIE APR goes beyond the 
generic 524B APR and facilitates the collection of more specific and 
comprehensive data due to grantees entering project specific data into 
an online database.
