SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As stated in Executive Order 14019, Promoting Access to Voting,1 the right to vote is the foundation of American democracy. Under section 7 of Executive Order 14019, (Ensuring Equal Access for Voters with Disabilities), NIST is directed to evaluate the steps needed to ensure that the online Federal Voter Registration Form is accessible to people with disabilities and identify barriers to private and independent voting for people with disabilities and make recommendations to remove these barriers. NIST is seeking public comment on the Draft Promoting Access to Voting: Recommendations for Addressing Barriers to Private and Independent Voting for People with Disabilities document. The Draft was developed by NIST using information collected through the Request for Information (RFI) that was published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2021, review of reports, papers and other literature, and engagement with stakeholder organizations and election officials. Request for Comment NIST seeks public comments on the draft Promoting Access to Voting: Recommendations for Addressing Barriers to Private and Independent Voting for People with Disabilities document and the draft recommendations contained in it regarding both the Federal Voter Registration Form as well as the barriers it has identified that prevent people with disabilities from exercising their fundamental rights and the ability to vote privately and independently. NIST is seeking comment from persons with disabilities, disability advocacy groups, assistive technology vendors and professionals, non-partisan voting promotion groups, voting technology vendors, election officials and other key stakeholders. The Draft is available electronically from the NIST website at: https:// www.nist.gov/itl/voting as well as www.regulations.gov. A comment template is available at: https:// www.nist.gov/itl/voting. Use of the comment template is suggested but not required. Interested parties should submit comments in accordance with the DATES and ADDRESSES section of this notice.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Denali Commission (Commission) is an independent Federal agency based on an innovative Federalstate partnership designed to provide critical utilities, infrastructure and support for economic development and training in Alaska by delivering federal services in the most cost-effective manner possible. The Commission is required to develop an annual work plan for future spending which will be published in the Federal Register, providing an opportunity for a 30-day period of public review and written comment. This Federal Register notice serves to announce the 30-day opportunity for public comment on the Denali Commission Draft Work Plan for Federal Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 2022). DATES: Comments and related material to be received by November 12, 2021. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Oct 20, 2021 Jkt 256001 Submit comments to the Denali Commission, Attention: Anne Stanislowski, 510 L Street, Suite 410, Anchorage, AK 99501. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anne Stanislowski, Denali Commission, 510 L Street, Suite 410, Anchorage, AK 99501. Telephone: (907) 271–3011. Email: astanislowski@denali.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Denali Commission’s mission is to partner with tribal, federal, state, and local governments and collaborate with all Alaskans to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government services, to build and ensure the operation and maintenance of Alaska’s basic infrastructure, and to develop a well-trained labor force employed in a diversified and sustainable economy. By creating the Commission, Congress mandated that all parties involved partner together to find new and innovative solutions to the unique infrastructure and economic development challenges in America’s most remote communities. Pursuant to the Denali Commission Act, the Commission determines its own basic operating principles and funding criteria on an annual federal fiscal year (October 1 to September 30) basis. The Commission outlines these priorities and funding recommendations in an annual work plan. The FY 2022 Work Plan was developed in the following manner. • A workgroup comprised of Denali Commissioners and Commission staff developed a preliminary draft work plan. • The preliminary draft work plan was published on Denali.gov for review by the public in advance of public testimony. • A public hearing was held to record public comments and recommendations on the preliminary draft work plan. • Written comments on the preliminary draft work plan were accepted for another ten days after the public hearing. • All public hearing comments and written comments were provided to Commissioners for their review and consideration. • Commissioners discussed the preliminary draft work plan in a public meeting and then voted on the work plan during the meeting. • The Commissioners forwarded their recommended work plan to the Federal Co-Chair, who then prepared the draft work plan for publication in the Federal Register providing a 30-day period for public review and written comment. During this time, the draft work plan ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58257 will also be disseminated to Commission program partners including, but not limited to, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the Economic Development Administration (EDA), Department of Agriculture—Rural Utilities Service (USDA/RUS), and the State of Alaska. • At the conclusion of the Federal Register Public comment period Commission staff provides the Federal Co-Chair with a summary of public comments and recommendations, if any, on the draft work plan. • If no revisions are made to the draft, the Federal Co-Chair provides notice of approval of the work plan to the Commissioners and forwards the work plan to the Secretary of Commerce for approval; or, if there are revisions the Federal Co-Chair provides notice of modifications to the Commissioners for their consideration and approval, and upon receipt of approval from Commissioners, forwards the work plan to the Secretary of Commerce for approval. • The Secretary of Commerce approves the work plan. • The Federal Co-Chair then approves grants and contracts based upon the approved work plan. FY 2022 Appropriations Summary The Commission has historically received federal funding from several sources. The two primary sources at this time include the Energy & Water Appropriation Bill (‘‘base’’ or ‘‘discretionary’’ funds) and an annual allocation from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Liability (TAPL) fund. The proposed FY 2022 Work Plan assumes the Commission will receive $15,000,000 of base funds, which is the amount referenced in the reauthorization of the Commission passed by Congress in 2016 (ref: Pub. L. 114–322), and a $2,917,000 TAPL allocation based on discussions with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Approximately $4,000,000 of the base funds will be used for administrative expenses and non-project program support, leaving $11,000,000 available for program activities. The total base funding shown in the Work Plan also includes an amount typically available from project closeouts and other de-obligations that occur in any given year. Approximately $117,000 of the TAPL funds will be utilized for administrative expenses and non-project program support, leaving $2,800,000 available for program activities. Absent any new specific direction or limitations provided by Congress in the current Energy & Water Appropriations Bill, these funding sources are governed by E:\FR\FM\21OCN1.SGM 21OCN1
