    Abstract: The Gulf Coast Recovery Grant (GCRG) is a new program 
authorized in Public Law 111-117--the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2010. The Act reserves $12 million for competitive grants to provide 
funding to local educational agencies (LEA) in counties in Louisiana, 
Mississippi, and Texas that were designated by the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency as counties eligible for Individual Assistance due to 
damage caused by Hurricanes Katrina, Ike, or Gustav. Funds can be used 
to improve education through such activities as replacing instructional 
materials and equipment; paying teacher incentives; constructing, 
modernizing, or renovating school buildings; beginning or expanding 
Advanced Placement or other rigorous instructional curricula; starting 
or expanding charter schools, and supporting after-school or extended 
learning time activities.
    The requirements under this grant include information collection 
activity covered under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The activity 
consists of the development of a new application for a LEA to submit to 
the Department to apply for FY 2010 funds.
    This information 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.
