SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. Title V of the Older Americans Act of 1965 (Reauthorized by Pub. L. 116–131, March 25, 2020) authorizes this information collection. The purposes of this Information Collection Request are to fulfill the statutory requirements for SCSEP data collection by supporting ETA’s ability to collect grantee performance data, including information on participant characteristics and outcomes (and pursuant to OAA 2020); document the equitable distribution of SCSEP services; assess customer satisfaction with the SCSEP program; and ensure that states are reporting on the SCSEP program as part of the State Plan process. Toward these goals, this ICR seeks to: • Renew, with revisions, the existing legacy data collection instruments— ETA–9120—Participant Form, ETA– 9121—Community Service Assignment Form, ETA–9122—Exit Form, and ETA– 9123—Unsubsidized Employment Form—for use until such time as the PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20203 legacy system is replaced by the new Grant Performance Management System (GPMS); • Combine the four existing data collection instruments (ETA–9120— Participant Form, ETA–9121— Community Service Assignment Form, ETA–9122—Exit Form, and ETA– 9123—Unsubsidized Employment Form) with those data elements approved under Control No. 1205–0521 that are incorporated into the new GPMS, and additional data elements newly developed for both the legacy system and GPMS and not previously approved, as a single data collection instrument. Grantees will use this data collection instrument, GPMS once it is implemented and replaces SPARQ; • Renew, with revisions, the legacy SCSEP Quarterly Progress Report (ETA– 5140) and the new Quarterly Performance Report for SCSEP (ETA– 9173–SCSEP); • Renew, without revisions, the Equitable Distribution (ED) Reports (ETA–8705A, and ETA–8705B); and add ED to the annual planning process; • Renew, with revisions, SCSEP’s survey collection instruments: ETA– 9124A– Participant Survey and ETA– 9124B—Host Agency Survey, and renew, without changes, the ETA– 9124C—Employer Survey. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention ‘‘OMB Control Number 1205– 0040.’’ Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction.

A public notice of availability of the draft environmental assessment (EA) was published in the Telegram & Gazette in Worcester County, Massachusetts, on December 16, 2020. The review period extended for 24 days, ending on January 8, 2021. No public comments were received. No changes to the findings of the EA have been made. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Implementation of the proposed action alternative will not have significant impacts on the human environment. The determination is sustained by the analysis in the EA, agency, consultation, the inclusion and consideration of public review, and the capability of mitigations to reduce or avoid impacts. Any adverse environmental effects that could occur are no more than minor in intensity, duration and context and less-thansignificant. As described in the EA, there are no highly uncertain or controversial impacts, unique or unknown risks, significant cumulative effects, or elements of precedence. There are no previous, planned, or implemented actions, which, in combination with the proposed action alternative, would have significant effects on the human environment. Requirements of NEPA have been satisfied, and preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not required. Suzan G.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation 
program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an 
opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested 
data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and 
financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
assessed.
    Title V of the Older Americans Act of 1965 (Reauthorized by Pub. L. 
116-131, March 25, 2020) authorizes this information collection. The 
purposes of this Information Collection Request are to fulfill the 
statutory requirements for SCSEP data collection by supporting ETA's 
ability to collect grantee performance data, including information on 
participant characteristics and outcomes (and pursuant to OAA 2020); 
document the equitable distribution of SCSEP services; assess customer 
satisfaction with the SCSEP program; and ensure that states are 
reporting on the SCSEP program as part of the State Plan process. 
Toward these goals, this ICR seeks to:
     Renew, with revisions, the existing legacy data collection 
instruments--ETA-9120--Participant Form, ETA-9121--Community Service 
Assignment Form, ETA-9122--Exit Form, and ETA-9123--Unsubsidized 
Employment Form--for use until such time as the legacy system is 
replaced by the new Grant Performance Management System (GPMS);
     Combine the four existing data collection instruments 
(ETA-9120--Participant Form, ETA-9121--Community Service Assignment 
Form, ETA-9122--Exit Form, and ETA-9123--Unsubsidized Employment Form) 
with those data elements approved under Control No. 1205-0521 that are 
incorporated into the new GPMS, and additional data elements newly 
developed for both the legacy system and GPMS and not previously 
approved, as a single data collection instrument. Grantees will use 
this data collection instrument, GPMS once it is implemented and 
replaces SPARQ;
     Renew, with revisions, the legacy SCSEP Quarterly Progress 
Report (ETA-5140) and the new Quarterly Performance Report for SCSEP 
(ETA-9173-SCSEP);
     Renew, without revisions, the Equitable Distribution (ED) 
Reports (ETA-8705A, and ETA-8705B); and add ED to the annual planning 
process;
     Renew, with revisions, SCSEP's survey collection 
instruments: ETA-9124A- Participant Survey and ETA-9124B--Host Agency 
Survey, and renew, without changes, the ETA-9124C--Employer Survey.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by OMB under the PRA and displays a 
currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the

receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention ``OMB Control Number

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
