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

its statutory obligations. The Acting Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office 
of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information

    Abstract: The Department of Education receives funding for the 
Grants to States for Workplace and Community Transition Training for 
Incarcerated Individuals Program (Title VIII, Part D of the Higher 
Education Amendments of 1998, as amended). The most recent amendment 
passed via Public Law 110-315 requires State Correctional Education 
Agencies to submit a proposal in order to be eligible. The law also 
requires that appropriated funds be allotted to each State in an amount 
that bears the same relationship to the total number of eligible 
students in each State. Therefore, States must submit data concerning 
the number of eligible students under the Program, so that the 
Department can run the State allocation formula. State Correctional 
Education Agencies (SCEA) are required to conduct an evaluation and to 
annually report to the Secretary and the Attorney General on the 
results of the evaluation.
