Title of Collection: Grantee Reporting Form—Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) Annual Payback Report. OMB Control Number: 1820–0617. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households; Private Sector. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 11,790. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 4,858. Abstract: Under Section 302 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Act,’’ the RSA provides Long-Term Training grants to academic institutions to support scholarship assistance to scholars. Scholars who receive scholarships under this program are required to work within the public rehabilitation program, such as with a State vocational rehabilitation agency, or an agency or organization that has a service arrangement with a State vocational rehabilitation agency, in qualified employment fields, which include rehabilitation counseling, administration, supervision, teaching or research in vocational rehabilitation, supported employment, or independent living rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with significant disabilities. The scholar is required to work two years in such settings for every year of full-time scholarship support. The service obligation for the scholar who matriculated part time, is based on the equivalent total of actual academic years of training received. The program regulations at 34 CFR 386.33–386.36 and 386.40–386.43 detail the payback provisions and the RSA scholars’ requirements to comply with them. Section 302 (b)(2)(C) of the Act requires that data on the employment of scholars are accurate, including tracking of scholars’ employment status and location of former scholars supported under the RLTT grants in order to ensure that scholars are meeting the payback requirements. In addition to meeting the requirement that all scholars be tracked, the data collected will provide performance data relevant to the rehabilitation fields and degrees pursued by RSA scholars, as well as the funds owed and the rehabilitation work completed by them. These data are used to assess program effectiveness and efficiency, and to meet the reporting VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Sep 11, 2018 Jkt 244001 requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA).
