Notice Inviting Informal Public Comment on Training and Technical Assistance and Disability Inclusion Programming
Document Number: 2012-14014
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-11
Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is inviting informal public comment from the public concerning the development and implementation of a unified training and technical assistance (TTA) strategy and disability inclusion programming for all CNCS programs. This input will be used to inform competitive processes for funding TTA as we transition from a formula-based methodology to competitive processes. The new budget environment requires a more focused and outcome- oriented strategy for TTA and disability programming. Our desired outcomes for TTA center on performance measurement and management, member/volunteer development and impact, as well as assisting programs in meeting requirements related to fiscal and program compliance. For disability inclusion, our goal is to increase the numbers of people with disabilities serving in national service programs. Stakeholder feedback on the most effective way to address these outcomes will be helpful to CNCS as we plan and prepare for this work. We will accept comments in writing, as described below, or in person at a listening session at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in Chicago, June 19, 2012. We will also hold two conference calls before the end of the comment period (please see schedule below). Please see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for topics to consider when formulating input. CNCS will not respond individually to those providing input, but will consider comments in preparing for future competitions. Please note that this Notice does not request comments on individual application forms used under the various programs of CNCS. CNCS periodically publishes separate requests for comment concerning such application forms.

A copy of this ICR, with applicable supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting Amy Borgstrom, (202) 606-6930 or by e-mail at aborgstrom@cns.gov. Unfortunately, since the Corporation requested OMB's approval of this emergency request by August 15, 2011, there will be not enough time for the public to provide comments through this Federal Register Notice before the approval date. Therefore, there will be no comment period for this request. Type of Review: Emergency request. Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service. Title: AmeriCorps State and National Application Instructions. OMB Number: 3045-0047. Agency Number: None. Affected Public: Nonprofit organizations and congregations. Total Respondents: 600. Frequency: One time. Average Time per Response: 40 hours. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 24,000 hours. Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): None. Total Burden Cost (operating/maintenance): None. Description: The Corporation for National and Community Service (the ``Corporation'') has amended several provisions relating to the AmeriCorps national service program, and has added rules to clarify the Corporation's requirements for national performance measures, fixed amount grants, and grantmaking criteria to align with the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. We also have a new Strategic Plan in place. The implementation of these changes through the rulemaking process includes ensuring the Corporation's information collection instruments accurately reflect these issues. In an effort to be compliant while maintaining functions essential to the operations of each state commission and AmeriCorps programs, we are therefore submitting the enclosed request under 5 CFR 1320.13 to OMB for emergency processing and approval of information collection activities. This submission includes one set of Application Instructions for AmeriCorps State and National grants. Since the passage of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, many Americans have expressed a renewed desire to serve their country by volunteering in their community. Now, we have an obligation to ensure that Americans have quality opportunities to serve. Moreover, as the Corporation and OMB have previously communicated, the Corporation is working hard to ensure it is fully compliant with the Paperwork Reduction Act and with OMB's information collection policies and procedures. If you have any questions, contact Amy Borgstrom at 202-606-6930 or aborgstrom@cns.gov. We sincerely thank you for your consideration of this request and your willingness to work with us in remaining fully compliant with the Paperwork Reduction Act.
