WebNEERS is accessed through the internet via Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari web browsers. It can also be accessed through mobile devices and tablets. The existing system incorporates local, university, and Federal components, the EFNEP 5-Year Plan/Annual Update (program plan), the EFNEP budget and budget justification, and the social ecological framework of the Community Nutrition Education (CNE) logic model. Only approved users can access WebNEERS and each user can only access data based on his/her defined permissions. The system also has the capability to export raw data for external analysis. Data exported from WebNEERS do not include personally identifiable information. Several stakeholder groups provide ongoing input on the system to ensure: (1) That EFNEP only collects data NIFA needs for evaluation and reporting purposes, and (2) to resolve bugs or other concerns experienced users. These stakeholder groups also give feedback to improve user interfaces and to improve functionality and capabilities of the system. The evaluation processes of EFNEP remain consistent with the requirements of Congressional legislation and OMB. The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993. WebNEERS is a single web-based system that operates at three levels: Region (County); Institution (university), and Federal. Data is entered at the regional level and is available in aggregated form at the Institution level in real time. University staff are able to generate institutionallevel reports to guide program management decisions and to inform State-level stakeholders.1 In States that have both 1862 and 1890 LGUs, separate reports are generated by each type of institution on the respective audiences served. A permissions process is used to allow data to flow from the Region, to the Institution, to the Federal level. Data is not available at the Federal level until the university staff submits it. This process allows for State and National assessments of the program’s impact. National data is used to create National reports, which are made available to the public. There are revisions to the currently approved collection. WebNEERS uses an agile development process, which allows software developers to work closely with users to operate smoothly, maintain securities, improve efficiencies, and function effectively in 1 ‘‘States’’ includes all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and insular areas. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Apr 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 the ever changing environment in which EFNEP is administered. It also supports an accelerated incorporation of research-based indicators to appropriately identify behavioral change. Two key developments have been made since the last OMB approval. First was the replacement of the Adult Behavior Checklist—a measurement tool that had been used for more than 25 years—with a new Food and Physical Activity Questionnaire. Prior to implementation, the new tool was tested for feasibility, validity, and reliability with the target audience via a multistate research group with programmatic expertise and experience. Second was the replacement of the evaluation form for youth grades 3–5. Replacement of youth evaluation indicators is an ongoing initiative within EFNEP to ensure that the tools used are valid, reliable, and programmatically and developmentally appropriate. Grades K– 2 and 3–5 have been completed. Review and development of indicators to potentially replace the existing tools for grades 6–8 and 9–12 has just begun. Estimate of Burden: The total annual estimated burden for WebNEERS is 15,440 hours for this data collection process—for participant education and data entry, aggregation, and reporting; and for preparation, review, and submission of EFNEP program plans and budgetary information. The burden for respondents was determined in two parts: (1) Regional data estimates (14,048.73 hours)—were determined from time stamp averages. All FY 2018 records were analyzed to identify those which involved a time lapse representing data entry and submission. Periodic samples (every 10,000 records) were then used to calculate the average length of time for each type of record. Averages were multiplied by the total number of records to get the final estimate. (2) Institutional data estimates (421.4 hours)—included program plans and budgetary information. These estimates were based on calculations of the previous survey sent by Clemson University to nine EFNEP Coordinators and their data managers, since the type of data collected remains unchanged and since a time stamp process is not yet in place to determine those calculations. Overall, burden estimates are considerably lower than previously estimated—particularly at the regional level. This is likely due to the use of a different methodology involving technology to help determine the estimated burden. Although additional reporting requirements were included in the updated system with the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17773 implementation of the new food and physical activity questionnaire (e.g. the use of 20 rather than 10 questions), the overall burden to the users was reduced. Respondents: Individuals, households, business or other for-profit or not-for-profit institutions. Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request to OMB for approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.

The approval for this information collection will expire on January 31, 2021. FSIS is making no changes to the burden estimate. FSIS requires the use of FSIS Form 9060–5 ‘‘Meat and Poultry Export Certificate of Wholesomeness’’ for all meat and poultry exports (9 CFR 322.2 and 9 CRF 381.106). The numbering system on FSIS Form 9060–5 consists of three letters followed by six numbers. The first two letters, MP, are static and stand for ‘‘Meat and Poultry.’’ The third letter rotates to the next sequential letter in the alphabet every 999,999 export certificates. Each series of the 9060–5 repeats the same sequential numbers, from 000001 to 999999. The sequential rotation of the third letter allows for one set of numbers from one series to be distinguished from the same set of numbers of a different series. The frequency of change from one letter to the next sequential letter will vary and is dependent on multiple factors, including the number of meat and poultry exports, as well as which countries are included in the PHIS export module. In general, FSIS will change series to the next sequential letter less frequently as more countries are added to the PHIS export module. FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information collection assessment: Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average .179 hours per response.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866 This notice is exempt from review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This notice does not contain reporting or recordkeeping requirements subject to approval by the Office of Management and Budget in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507). Executive Order 12372 This program is listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Programs under No. 10.557, and is subject to the provisions of Executive Order 12372, which requires intergovernmental consultation with State and local officials (7 CFR part 3015, subpart V, 48 FR 29100, June 24, 1983, and 49 FR 22675, May 31, 1984). Description Section 17(d)(2)(A) of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1786(d)(2)(A)), requires the Secretary of Agriculture to establish income criteria to be used with nutritional risk criteria in determining a person’s eligibility for participation in the WIC Program. The law provides that persons will be income-eligible for the WIC Program if they are members of families that satisfy the income standard prescribed for reduced-price school meals under section 9(b) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1758(b)). Under section 9(b), the income limit for reduced-price school meals is 185 percent of the Federal poverty guidelines, as adjusted. Section 9(b) also requires that these guidelines be revised annually to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index. The annual revision for 2019 was published by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at 84 FR 1167, February 1, 2019. The guidelines published by HHS are referred to as the ‘‘poverty guidelines.’’ Program Regulations at 7 CFR 246.7(d)(1) specify that State agencies PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17775 may prescribe income guidelines either equaling the income guidelines established under Section 9 of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act for reduced-price school meals, or identical to State or local guidelines for free or reduced-price health care. However, in conforming WIC income guidelines to State or local health care guidelines, the State cannot establish WIC guidelines which exceed the guidelines for reduced-price school meals, or which are less than 100 percent of the Federal poverty guidelines. Consistent with the method used to compute income eligibility guidelines for reduced-price meals under the National School Lunch Program, the poverty guidelines were multiplied by 1.85 and the results rounded upward to the next whole dollar. At this time, the Department is publishing the maximum and minimum WIC income eligibility guidelines by household size for the period of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Consistent with section 17(f)(17) of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1786(f)(17)), a State agency may implement the revised WIC income eligibility guidelines concurrently with the implementation of income eligibility guidelines under the Medicaid Program established under Title XIX of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1396, et seq.). State agencies may coordinate implementation with the revised Medicaid guidelines, i.e., earlier in the year, but in no case may implementation take place later than July 1, 2019. State agencies that do not coordinate implementation with the revised Medicaid guidelines must implement the WIC income eligibility guidelines on or before July 1, 2019. The table in this Notice contains the income limits by household size for the 48 contiguous States, the District of Columbia, and all United States Territories, including Guam. Separate tables for Alaska and Hawaii have been included for the convenience of the State agencies because the poverty guidelines for Alaska and Hawaii are higher than for the 48 contiguous States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Public Health Information System.
    OMB Control Number: 0583-0153.
    Expiration Date: 01/31/2021.
    Type of Request: Revision to an approved information collection.
    Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the 
functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53) as specified in the 
Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the 
Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.) and the 
Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These 
statutes mandate that FSIS protect the public by verifying that meat, 
poultry, and egg products are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and 
properly labeled and packaged.
    FSIS is requesting a revision to the approved information 
collection regarding the FSIS Public Health Information System (PHIS) 
so that FSIS can make periodic updates to the numbering system on the 
Meat and Poultry Export Certificate of Wholesomeness (FSIS Form 9060-
5). The approval for this information collection will expire on January 
31, 2021. FSIS is making no changes to the burden estimate.
    FSIS requires the use of FSIS Form 9060-5 ``Meat and Poultry Export 
Certificate of Wholesomeness'' for all meat and poultry exports (9 CFR 
322.2 and 9 CRF 381.106). The numbering system on FSIS Form 9060-5 
consists of three letters followed by six numbers. The first two 
letters, MP, are static and stand for ``Meat and Poultry.'' The third 
letter rotates to the next sequential letter in the alphabet every 
999,999 export certificates. Each series of the 9060-5 repeats the same 
sequential numbers, from 000001 to 999999. The sequential rotation of 
the third letter allows for one set of numbers from one series to be 
distinguished from the same set of numbers of a different series. The 
frequency of change from one letter to the next sequential letter will 
vary and is dependent on multiple factors, including the number of meat 
and poultry exports, as well as which countries are included in the 
PHIS export module. In general, FSIS will change series to the next 
sequential letter less frequently as more countries are added to the 
PHIS export module.
    FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information 
collection assessment:
    Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average .179 hours per response.
    Estimated total number of respondents: 6,242.
    Estimated average number of responses per respondent: 103.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 643,008.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 115,117 hours.
    Copies of this information collection assessment can be obtained 
from Gina Kouba, Office of Policy and Program Development, Food Safety 
and Inspection Service, USDA, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Room 6065, 
South Building, Washington, DC 20250-3700; (202) 720-5627.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of FSIS's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of FSIS's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
method and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information, including through 
the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other 
technological collection techniques, or other forms of information 
technology. Comments may be sent to both FSIS, at the addresses 
provided above, and the Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 
Washington, DC 20253.
    Responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of
