Additionally, the supporting forms will help AmeriCorps identify and deploy programs more effectively and efficiently, matching the capabilities of the programs to the needs of the communities requesting assistance. The additional tools and forms under the DRCA will allow for effective information collection during a disaster event as well as assess the capacity of all DRCA programs throughout the year.

Title of Collection: College Affordability and Transparency Explanation Form (CATEF) 2021–2023. OMB Control Number: 1840–0822. Type of Review: A revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 544. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,251. Abstract: The Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) is seeking a renewed three-year clearance for the College Affordability and Transparency Explanation Form (CATEF) data collection. OPE has collected this information since 2011–12 and the collection of information through CATEF is required by § 132 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended (HEA), 20 U.S.C. 1015a with the goal of increasing the transparency of college tuition prices for consumers. This submission is for the 2021–22, 2022–23, and 2023–24 collection years. CATEF collects follow-up information from institutions that appear on the tuition and fees and/or net price increase College Affordability and Transparency Center (CATC) Lists for being in the five percent of institutions in their institutional sector that have the highest increases, expressed as a percentage change, over the three-year time period for which the most recent data are available. The information collected through CATEF is used to write a summary report for Congress which is also posted on the CATC website (accessible through the College Navigator). Minor changes are being requested to the data collection instruments that were approved in November 2012 (OMB# 1840–0822 v.2). We will continue to use two CATEF forms: (1) Net Price and (2) Tuition and Fees. Analysis of past open-ended data questions in both surveys revealed that the open-ended items could be replaced with multi-choice items, resulting in burden reduction of 812 hours.
