    OMB Control Number: 1840-0839.
    Type of Review: An extension of an existing information collection.

    Abstract: The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, signed into law on 
February 9, 2018, included significant new funding to support disaster 
relief. The U.S. Department of Education (Department) will award up to 
$2.7 billion to assist K-12 schools and school districts and 
institutions of higher education (IHEs) in meeting the educational 
needs of students affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and the 
2017 California wildfires. This disaster assistance will help schools, 
school districts and IHEs return to their full capabilities as quickly 
and effectively as possible. There are two higher education funding 
opportunities that require clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act. 
Congress appropriated $100 million for the Emergency Assistance to 
Institutions of Higher Education program, to provide emergency 
assistance to IHEs and their students in areas directly affected by the 
covered disasters or emergencies. Congress appropriated $75 million for 
the Defraying Costs of Enrolling Displaced Students in Higher Education 
program, to provide payments to IHEs to help defray the unexpected 
expenses associated with enrolling displaced students from IHEs 
directly affected by a covered disaster or emergency. The application 
packages contained in this request will be used to collect information 
needed to determine eligibility for funding under these two programs.
