Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management 
Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed 
information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
June 30, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal 
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory 
Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that 
notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to 
submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information 
collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of 
review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or 
reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) 
Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) 
Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or 
Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment. 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.

    Type of Review: Extension.
    Title: Impact Aid Program Application for Section 8002 Assistance.
    Frequency: Annually.

    Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 500.
Burden Hours: 500

    Abstract: The U.S. Department of Education is requesting approval 
for the Application for Assistance under Section 8002 of Title VIII of 
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by No 
Child Left Behind (NCLB). This application is otherwise known as Impact 
Aid Payments for Federal Property. Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) 
that have lost taxable property due to Federal activities use this form 
to request financial assistance. Regulations for the Impact Aid Program 
are found at 34 CFR 222. This application previously included a 
separate application for Section 8003, another distinct formula grant 
that requires different data from applicant LEAs. To facilitate more 
efficient clearance processes for both applications this year and in 
future years, the Department is separating these two applications into 
two paperwork approval packages. The Section 8003 application is being 
submitted under the OMB 1810-NEW number. The statute and regulations 
for this program require a variety of Section 8002 data from applicants 
annually to determine eligibility for the grants and the amount of 
grant payment under the statutory formula. The least burdensome method 
of collecting this required information is for each applicant to submit 
these data through a web-based electronic application hosted on the 
Department of Education's e-Grants Web site.
    Requests for copies of the proposed information collection request 
may be accessed from, by selecting the ``Browse 
Pending Collections'' link and by clicking on link number 3675. When 
you access the information collection, click on ``Download 
Attachments'' to view. Written requests for information should be 
addressed to U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., 
LBJ, Washington, DC 20202-4537. Requests may also be electronically 
mailed to or faxed to 202-401-0920. Please specify 
the complete title of the information collection when making your 
    Comments regarding burden and/or the collection activity 
requirements should be electronically mailed to 
Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may 
call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339.
