Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Correction notice.


SUMMARY: On December 7, 2001, a notice was published for the 
Discretionary Grant collection, ``Generic Application Package for 
Discretionary Grant Programs'' in the Federal Register (Volume 66, 
Number 236) dated December 7, 2001. This collection needed to be 
processed through the emergency clearance process. Refer to last week's 
publication for the specific details of the collection. Since this 
information collection is now an emergency, ED is requesting OMB 
approval by December 17, 2001. ED is requesting emergency processing 
and a December 17 approval for this information collection since it 
could potentially result in public harm if this collection went through 
the normal clearance process. Approval by this date is urgent and 
directly relates to the nature of the work that will be funded under 
the grants to be awarded using this information collection. 
Applications for research grants must be available in early January in 
order to provide applicants with sufficient time to develop and submit 
strong research applications by March 1, 2002. The Department of 
Education must award these grants by the end of April or sooner to 
allow the involved local education agencies--essential participants in 
the research applications--sufficient time for planning during the 
summer so that implementation occurs in September, 2002. Any delay 
would jeopardize the timing of the conduct of important research on 
early childhood curricula. ED will consider any public comment received 
in order to improve this information collection. The Leader, Regulatory 
Information Management,

Information Officer.
