Background We are proposing to extend 33 projects under three programs in order to align and coordinate all OSERSfunded training and technical assistance (TA) services focused on transition-age children and youth with disabilities and their families. The waivers and extensions would allow OSERS to align and coordinate, and improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of, direct training and technical assistance services focused on transition-age children and youth with disabilities and their families. In addition, the Department will consider approaches for improving coordination among programs that provide these services to more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of States, service providers, youth with disabilities, and families and to allow for efficient use of the funding available to support these activities. The projects that provide transitionage TA services (and other TA services for individuals with disabilities and their families) are: The National Technical Assistance Center on Improving Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students With Disabilities (NTACT) (CFDA 84.326E) In September 2014, OSEP and RSA jointly made a 60-month award to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to establish and operate the National Technical Assistance Center on Improving Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students with Disabilities. NTACT was funded under the TA and Dissemination PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Program as authorized under sections 663 and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 20 U.S.C. 1463 and 1481(d), and section 303(b) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (Rehabilitation Act), 29 U.S.C 793(b). The current project period ends on December 31, 2019. The purpose of the NTACT is to provide TA to State educational agencies (SEAs), local education agencies (LEAs), State vocational rehabilitation agencies (SVRAs), and other vocational rehabilitation (VR) service providers to implement evidence-based and promising practices and strategies to ensure that students with disabilities, including those with significant disabilities, graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills, and supports needed for success in postsecondary education and employment. Specifically, NTACT has five primary goals aligned with OSEP and RSA priorities: 1. Youth and young adults with disabilities receive and participate in evidence-based and promising practices in secondary transition services and supports. 2. SEAs and LEAs implement evidence-based and promising practices and strategies, including early warning and intervention systems to reduce dropout and increase graduation rates. 3. Students with disabilities participate in career-related curricula so they are prepared for postsecondary employment and careers. 4. Students with disabilities receive rigorous academic preparation so they are prepared for success in postsecondary education. 5. SEAs, SVRAs, LEAs, and local VR offices use data-driven decision making to develop their respective plans and reports. OSEP-Funded Parent Training and Information Centers (CFDA 84.328M) In September 2014, OSEP made twenty-three 60-month awards to the following entities to operate Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs): Center Raising Special Kids, Inc ...................

All 24 of the OSEP-funded PTIs are funded under the Training and Information for Parents of Children with Disabilities program as authorized under section 671 and 681(d) of IDEA, 20 U.S.C. 1463, and all current project periods end on September 30, 2019. The purpose of the OSEP-funded PTIs is to provide services designed to meet the information and training needs of parents of children with disabilities, and transition-age youth with disabilities. The OSEP-funded PTIs were funded to help youth become effective self-advocates and provide parents with information, individual assistance, and training to enable them to: (a) Ensure that their children are included in general education classrooms and extracurricular activities with their peers; (b) help their children meet developmental and academic goals; (c) help their children meet challenging expectations established for all children, including college- and career-ready academic standards; and (d) prepare their children to achieve positive postsecondary outcomes that lead to lives that are as productive and independent as possible. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 Jun 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 Specifically, the OSEP-funded PTIs (a) inform parents of children with disabilities and youth with disabilities of how they can benefit from the services provided by the PTI; (b) provide high-quality services that increase parents’ capacity to help their children with disabilities improve their early learning, school-aged, and postsecondary outcomes and increase youth’s capacity to be effective selfadvocates; and (c) work in partnership with any Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs) and any other PTIs funded in the State under sections 672 and 671 of IDEA, respectively, and local, State, and national organizations and agencies, such as protection and advocacy agencies and VR agencies, that serve children and youth with disabilities and their families.

These RSA-funded PTIs are funded under the Parent Information and Training Program as authorized under section 303(c) of the Rehabilitation Act. The current project periods end on September 30, 2019. These RSA-funded PTIs are designed to meet the unique training and information needs of those individuals who live in the areas to be served, particularly those who are members of populations that have been unserved or underserved by programs under the Rehabilitation Act. The RSA-funded PTIs are geographically distributed to the extent possible throughout the country. The RSA-funded PTIs coordinate and work closely with the OSEP-funded PTIs and with the centers for independent living. The RSA-funded PTIs provide information and training to individuals with disabilities and their parents, family members, guardians, advocates, and other authorized representatives. Specifically, the RSA-funded PTIs help individuals with disabilities and their families to: (a) Better understand VR and independent living programs and PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 26625 services; (b) provide follow-up support for transition services and employment programs; (c) communicate effectively with transition and rehabilitation personnel and other relevant professionals; (d) provide support in the development of individualized plans for employment; (e) provide support and expertise in obtaining information about rehabilitation and independent living programs, services, and resources that are appropriate; and (f) understand the provisions of the Rehabilitation Act, particularly provisions relating to employment, supported employment, and independent living. National Technical Assistance for Parent Information and Training Centers (84.235G) In September 2014, RSA made one 60month award to the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN), New Jersey to establish and operate the national PTI TA center. The center is funded under the Parent Information and Training Program as authorized by section 303(c) of the Rehabilitation Act. The current project period ends on September 30, 2019. The purpose of the national PTI TA Center is to ensure that the seven Statelevel PTI centers funded by RSA are providing consistent information and training to assist individuals with disabilities and their families, including youth with disabilities who are of transition age, achieve their employment and independent living goals. The national PTI TA Center also disseminates information on promising and evidence-based practices that lead to high-quality employment outcomes and independent living for individuals with disabilities; shares strategies for communicating effectively with individuals from culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse backgrounds; and coordinates the seven State-level PTI centers funded by RSA and the PTI centers funded by OSEP in disseminating information and training materials on transition services, VR, supported employment, independent living, and career development. Waivers and Extensions We do not believe that it would be in the public interest to run competitions for these programs in FY 2019, because the Department is reviewing the alignment of its training and TA services focused on transition from high school to college, careers, and adult services for children and youth with disabilities and their families. During the remainder of FY 2019 the Department will consider approaches E:\FR\FM\07JNP1.SGM 07JNP1 26626 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 110 / Friday, June 7, 2019 / Proposed Rules for improving coordination among programs that provide these services to more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of States, service providers, youth with disabilities, and their families and to allow for more efficient use of the funding available to support these activities. The Department has also concluded that it would not be in the public interest to have a lapse in the critically needed resources currently provided by 34 CFR 75.250, which prohibit project periods exceeding five years, and the requirements in 34 CFR 75.261(a) and (c)(2), which allow the extension of a project period only if the extension does not involve the obligation of additional Federal funds. The waiver would allow the Department to issue one-time FY 2019 continuation awards to the projects originally funded in FY 2014 and 2016, estimated as follows.

Allowing funding to lapse before the Department establishes a new, coordinated strategy for training and TA services would leave youth and families without access to critical services and assistance that ensure that students with disabilities, including those with significant disabilities, transition from K–12 prepared for postsecondary success. For these reasons, the Secretary proposes to waive the requirements in Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification The Secretary certifies that the proposed waiver and extension of the project period would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The only entities that would be affected by the proposed waiver and extension of the project period are the current grantees and any other potential applicants. The Secretary certifies that the proposed waiver and extension would VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 Jun 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 Amount not have a significant economic impact on these entities because the extension of an existing project period imposes minimal compliance costs, and the activities required to support the additional year of funding would not impose additional regulatory burdens or require unnecessary Federal supervision.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to reconsider the nonattainment designation under the Clean Air Act (CAA) for the Williamson County, Illinois area for the 2010 1-hour sulfur dioxide (SO2) primary national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS). On June 30, 2016, the EPA Administrator signed a final action that designated the Williamson County, Illinois area as nonattainment based on a review of available information. On September 12, 2016, Southern Illinois Power Cooperative (SIPC), the owner of the largest source of SO2 emissions in the area (the Marion Power Station), submitted to the EPA an updated modeling analysis that characterized SO2 air quality in the area at the time of the final designation action.

Background

    We are proposing to extend 33 projects under three programs in 
order to align and coordinate all OSERS-funded training and technical 
assistance (TA) services focused on transition-age children and youth 
with disabilities and their families. The waivers and extensions would 
allow OSERS to align and coordinate, and improve the efficiency and 
cost-effectiveness of, direct training and technical assistance 
services focused on transition-age children and youth with disabilities 
and their families. In addition, the Department will consider 
approaches for improving coordination among programs that provide these 
services to more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of States, 
service providers, youth with disabilities, and families and to allow 
for efficient use of the funding available to support these activities.
    The projects that provide transition-age TA services (and other TA 
services for individuals with disabilities and their families) are:

The National Technical Assistance Center on Improving Transition to 
Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students With Disabilities 
(NTACT) (CFDA 84.326E)

    In September 2014, OSEP and RSA jointly made a 60-month award to 
the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to establish and operate 
the National Technical Assistance Center on Improving Transition to 
Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students with Disabilities. 
NTACT was funded under the TA and Dissemination Program as authorized 
under sections 663 and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities 
Education Act (IDEA), 20 U.S.C. 1463 and 1481(d), and section 303(b) of 
the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation 
and Opportunity Act (Rehabilitation Act), 29 U.S.C 793(b). The current 
project period ends on December 31, 2019.
    The purpose of the NTACT is to provide TA to State educational 
agencies (SEAs), local education agencies (LEAs), State vocational 
rehabilitation agencies (SVRAs), and other vocational rehabilitation 
(VR) service providers to implement evidence-based and promising 
practices and strategies to ensure that students with disabilities, 
including those with significant disabilities, graduate from high 
school with the knowledge, skills, and supports needed for success in 
postsecondary education and employment.
    Specifically, NTACT has five primary goals aligned with OSEP and 
RSA priorities:
    1. Youth and young adults with disabilities receive and participate 
in evidence-based and promising practices in secondary transition 
services and supports.
    2. SEAs and LEAs implement evidence-based and promising practices 
and strategies, including early warning and intervention systems to 
reduce dropout and increase graduation rates.
    3. Students with disabilities participate in career-related 
curricula so they are prepared for postsecondary employment and 
careers.
    4. Students with disabilities receive rigorous academic preparation 
so they are prepared for success in postsecondary education.
    5. SEAs, SVRAs, LEAs, and local VR offices use data-driven decision 
making to develop their respective plans and reports.

OSEP-Funded Parent Training and Information Centers (CFDA 84.328M)

    In September 2014, OSEP made twenty-three 60-month awards to the 
following entities to operate Parent Training and Information Centers 
(PTIs):

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In June 2016, OSEP made a 36-month award to Learning Disabilities 
Associates of Hawaii to operate a PTI to serve the outlying areas and 
freely associated States in the Pacific (American Samoa, the Federated 
States of Micronesia, Guam, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Republic of 
Palau).
    All 24 of the OSEP-funded PTIs are funded under the Training and 
Information for Parents of Children with Disabilities program as 
authorized under section 671 and 681(d) of IDEA, 20 U.S.C. 1463, and 
all current project periods end on September 30, 2019.
    The purpose of the OSEP-funded PTIs is to provide services designed 
to meet the information and training needs of parents of children with 
disabilities, and transition-age youth with disabilities. The OSEP-
funded PTIs were funded to help youth become effective self-advocates 
and provide parents with information, individual assistance, and 
training to enable them to: (a) Ensure that their children are included 
in general education classrooms and extracurricular activities with 
their peers; (b) help their children meet developmental and academic 
goals; (c) help their children meet challenging expectations 
established for all children, including college- and career-ready 
academic standards; and (d) prepare their children to achieve positive 
postsecondary outcomes that lead to lives that are as productive and 
independent as possible.
    Specifically, the OSEP-funded PTIs (a) inform parents of children 
with disabilities and youth with disabilities of how they can benefit 
from the services provided by the PTI; (b) provide high-quality 
services that increase parents' capacity to help their children with 
disabilities improve their early learning, school-aged, and 
postsecondary outcomes and increase youth's capacity to be effective 
self-advocates; and (c) work in partnership with any Community Parent 
Resource Centers (CPRCs) and any other PTIs funded in the State under 
sections 672 and 671 of IDEA, respectively, and local, State, and 
national organizations and agencies, such as protection and advocacy 
agencies and VR agencies, that serve children and youth with 
disabilities and their families.

RSA-Funded Parent Information and Training Centers (CFDA 84.235F)

    In September 2014, RSA made seven 60-month awards to the following 
entities to operate RSA-funded Parent Information and Training Centers 
(PTIs):

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Center                               State
------------------------------------------------------------------------
PEAK Parent Center...........................  CO.
Statewide Parent Advocacy Network............  NJ.
Open Doors for Multicultural Families........  WA.
Federation for Children with Special Needs,    MA.
 Inc.
Resources for Children with Special Needs,     NY.
 Inc.
PACER Center Inc.............................  MN.
Missouri Parents Act MPACT...................  MO.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These RSA-funded PTIs are funded under the Parent Information and 
Training Program as authorized under section 303(c) of the 
Rehabilitation Act. The current project periods end on September 30, 
2019.
    These RSA-funded PTIs are designed to meet the unique training and 
information needs of those individuals who live in the areas to be 
served, particularly those who are members of populations that have 
been unserved or underserved by programs under the Rehabilitation Act. 
The RSA-funded PTIs are geographically distributed to the extent 
possible throughout the country. The RSA-funded PTIs coordinate and 
work closely with the OSEP-funded PTIs and with the centers for 
independent living.
    The RSA-funded PTIs provide information and training to individuals 
with disabilities and their parents, family members, guardians, 
advocates, and other authorized representatives. Specifically, the RSA-
funded PTIs help individuals with disabilities and their families to: 
(a) Better understand VR and independent living programs and services; 
(b) provide follow-up support for transition services and employment 
programs; (c) communicate effectively with transition and 
rehabilitation personnel and other relevant professionals; (d) provide 
support in the development of individualized plans for employment; (e) 
provide support and expertise in obtaining information about 
rehabilitation and independent living programs, services, and resources 
that are appropriate; and (f) understand the provisions of the 
Rehabilitation Act, particularly provisions relating to employment, 
supported employment, and independent living.

National Technical Assistance for Parent Information and Training 
Centers (84.235G)

    In September 2014, RSA made one 60-month award to the Statewide 
Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN), New Jersey to establish and operate the 
national PTI TA center. The center is funded under the Parent 
Information and Training Program as authorized by section 303(c) of the 
Rehabilitation Act. The current project period ends on September 30, 
2019.
    The purpose of the national PTI TA Center is to ensure that the 
seven State-level PTI centers funded by RSA are providing consistent 
information and training to assist individuals with disabilities and 
their families, including youth with disabilities who are of transition 
age, achieve their employment and independent living goals.
    The national PTI TA Center also disseminates information on 
promising and evidence-based practices that lead to high-quality 
employment outcomes and independent living for individuals with 
disabilities; shares strategies for communicating effectively with 
individuals from culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse 
backgrounds; and coordinates the seven State-level PTI centers funded 
by RSA and the PTI centers funded by OSEP in disseminating information 
and training materials on transition services, VR, supported 
employment, independent living, and career development.

Waivers and Extensions

    We do not believe that it would be in the public interest to run 
competitions for these programs in FY 2019, because the Department is 
reviewing the alignment of its training and TA services focused on 
transition from high school to college, careers, and adult services for 
children and youth with disabilities and their families. During the 
remainder of FY 2019 the Department will consider approaches

[[Page 26626]]

for improving coordination among programs that provide these services 
to more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of States, service 
providers, youth with disabilities, and their families and to allow for 
more efficient use of the funding available to support these 
activities.
    The Department has also concluded that it would not be in the 
public interest to have a lapse in the critically needed resources 
currently provided by these programs. Allowing funding to lapse before 
the Department establishes a new, coordinated strategy for training and 
TA services would leave youth and families without access to critical 
services and assistance that ensure that students with disabilities, 
including those with significant disabilities, transition from K-12 
prepared for postsecondary success.
    For these reasons, the Secretary proposes to waive the requirements 
in 34 CFR 75.250, which prohibit project periods exceeding five years, 
and the requirements in 34 CFR 75.261(a) and (c)(2), which allow the 
extension of a project period only if the extension does not involve 
the obligation of additional Federal funds. The waiver would allow the 
Department to issue one-time FY 2019 continuation awards to the 
projects originally funded in FY 2014 and 2016, estimated as follows.

    Any activities carried out during the year of this continuation 
award must be consistent with the scope, goals, and objectives of the 
grantees' applications as approved in either the 2014 or 2016 
competitions. The requirements for continuation awards are set forth in 
34 CFR 75.253.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

    The Secretary certifies that the proposed waiver and extension of 
the project period would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. The only entities that would be 
affected by the proposed waiver and extension of the project period are 
the current grantees and any other potential applicants.
    The Secretary certifies that the proposed waiver and extension 
would not have a significant economic impact on these entities because 
the extension of an existing project period imposes minimal compliance 
costs, and the activities required to support the additional year of 
funding would not impose additional regulatory burdens or require 
unnecessary Federal supervision.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    This notice of proposed waiver and extension of the project period 
does not contain any information collection requirements.

Intergovernmental Review

    These programs are subject to Executive Order 12372 and the 
regulations in 34 CFR part 79. One of the objectives of the Executive 
order is to foster an intergovernmental partnership and a strengthened 
federalism. The Executive order relies on processes developed by State 
and local governments for coordination and review of proposed Federal 
financial assistance. This document provides early notification of our 
specific plans and actions for this program.
