SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Labor, as part of 
continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts 
a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and

for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can be 
provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial

    The Department of Labor's VETS administers funds for the Jobs for

    ``Subject to subsection (c) make available for use in each State by

formula required by 38 U.S.C. 4102A(c)(2)(B) and as published in 
regulation at Title 20, Part 1001, Subpart F of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR). The Assistant Secretary for Veterans' Employment and 
Training monitors and supervises the distribution and use of those 
funds as required by 38 U.S.C. 4102A(b)(6). Additionally, and in 
accordance with 38 U.S.C. 4107(b), the Secretary reviews performance 
and provides an annual report to Congress that includes:
    A characterization of the quality and character of priority of 
services provided to veterans (38 U.S.C. 4215 and 20 CFR 1010.320, 
1010.330);
    Efforts to coordinate with the Veterans Administration in 
accordance with 38 U.S.C. 4102A(b)(3) and 4109; and

    VETS is requesting continued approval for the information 
collection that streamlines the annual funding request process for 
grantees, reports the use of grantee funds in sufficient detail to 
allow interim adjustments that ensure all appropriated funding is 
expended properly, and provides data needed for VETS' Annual Report to
