3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general
public and Federal agencies with an

assess the impact of its information
collection requirements and minimize
the public’s reporting burden. It also
helps the public understand the
Department’s information collection
requirements and provide the requested
data in the desired format. ED is
soliciting comments on the proposed
information collection request (ICR) that
is described below. The Department of
Education is especially interested in
public comment addressing the
following issues: (1) Is this collection
necessary to the proper functions of the
Department; (2) will this information be
processed and used in a timely manner;
(3) is the estimate of burden accurate;
(4) how might the Department enhance
the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and (5) how
might the Department minimize the
burden of this collection on the
respondents, including through the use
of information technology. Please note
that written comments received in
response to this notice will be
considered public records.

Abstract: The State Charter School
Facilities Incentive Grants Program
allows States to apply for Federal
assistance. These grants are made to
States to provide them with an incentive
to create new or enhance existing per-
pupil facilities aid programs for charter
schools. The applicants will provide a
description of their proposed activities
and provide information necessary to
determine which grant applications
should be funded. An additional part of
the application consists of assurances
regarding the applicant’s compliance
with applicable Federal laws and
regulations. The information provided
in the application will allow field
readers and the Department of
Education to determine if applicants are
eligible and identify which applications
most merit funding.
This collection is being submitted
under the Streamlined Clearance
Process for Discretionary Grant
Information Collections (1894–0001).
Therefore, the 30-day public comment
period notice will be the only public
comment notice published for this
information collection request.

by 5 p.m. Eastern on Friday, February
25, 2022.

Progress Report (EAC–PR).

rates with grantees, and resolves audit
findings on the use of HAVA funds.
The EAC–PR has been developed for
both interim and final progress reports
for grants issued under HAVA authority.
This revised format builds upon that
report for the various grant awards given
by EAC and provides terminology
clarification. A ‘‘For Comment’’ version
of the draft format for use in submission
of interim and final Progress Reports is
posted on the EAC website at: https://
www.eac.gov/payments-and-grants/
reporting. The PR will directly benefit
award recipients by making it easier for
them to administer federal grant and
cooperative agreement programs
through standardization of the types of
information required in progress
reports—thereby reducing their
administrative effort and costs.
After obtaining and considering
public comment, the EAC will prepare
the format for final clearance.
Comments are invited on (a) ways to
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity
of the information collected from
respondents, including the use of
automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology;
and (b) ways to minimize the burden of
the collection of information on
respondents, including through the use
of automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Description: The EAC proposes to
collect program progress data for HAVA
grantees building upon the approved
form OMB Control No: 3265–0021. EAC
will use this data to ensure grantees are
proceeding in a satisfactory manner in
meeting the approved goals and purpose
of the project.
The requirement for grantees to report
on performance is OMB grants policy.
