Download as PDF 59518 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 184 / Tuesday, September 22, 2020 / Notices Type of Review: An extension of a currently approved information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Organizations. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 9,861. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 447,089. Abstract: The Department is requesting an extension of the approval for the Generic Application Package that numerous ED discretionary grant programs use to provide to applicants the forms and information needed to apply for new grants under those grant program competitions. The Department will use this Generic Application package for discretionary grant programs that: (1) Use the standard ED or Federal-wide grant applications forms that have been cleared separately through OMB under the terms of this generic clearance as approved by OMB and (2) use selection criteria from the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR); selection criteria that reflect statutory or regulatory provisions that have been developed under 34 CFR 75.209, 75.210, or a combination of EDGAR, statutory or ‘‘approved’’ regulatory criteria or other provisions, as authorized under 34 CFR 75.200, 75.209 and 75.210. The use of the standard ED grant application forms and the use of EDGAR and/or criteria developed under §§ 75.200 and 75.209, and 75.210 promotes the standardization and streamlining of ED discretionary grant application packages.
