The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the ``Corporation''), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. Sec. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that 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 requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning its proposed collection request for the National Evaluation of the Learn and Serve America School-Based Program (NELSAP). The evaluation utilizes an experimental design to assess the impact of Learn and Serve America-funded service-learning activities on student outcomes. The evaluation will demonstrate the effectiveness of service-learning as a pedagogical method. Participation in the information collection is voluntary and will not be used in grant funding decisions. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the addresses section of this notice.
