AGENCY: Department of Education.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance 
Division, 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: An emergency review has been requested in accordance with the 
Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 3507 (j)), since public harm is reasonably 
likely to result if normal clearance procedures are followed. Approval 
by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been requested by June 
15, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be addressed to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attention: Education Desk Officer, 
Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Room 10222, New 
Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, be faxed to (202) 395-
5806 or e-mailed to oira_submission@omb.eop.gov with a cc: to 
ICDocketMgr@ed.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Director of OMB 
provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity 
to comment on information collection requests. The Office of Management 
and Budget (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 Acting Director, 
Information Collection Clearance Division, Regulatory Information 
Management Services, Office of Management, publishes this notice 
containing proposed information collection requests at the beginning of 
the Departmental review of the information collection. 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. ED 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 
respondents, including through the use of information technology.

Office of Postsecondary Education

    Type of Review: Reinstatement.
    Title: Application for Grants under the Training Program for 
Federal TRIO Programs.
    Abstract: This application is needed to conduct a national 
competition for new grant awards under the Training Program for Federal 
TRIO Programs for Fiscal Year 2010. The Training Program for Federal 
TRIO programs is mandated by statute to provide training for leadership 
personnel and staff emoloyed in, participating in, or preparing for 
employment in Federal TRIO Program projects designed to indentify 
individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, prepare them for a program 
of postsecondary education, and provide special services for such 
students pursuing programs of postsecondary education.
    Additional Information: Without the granting of the emergency 
clearance, the Department will miss a statutory deadline and harm to 
the public would be caused due to lack of training needed to operate 
Federal TRIO Program's grants. All staff employed by Federal TRIO 
Programs' grants provide support and esnure high school completion, 
college entrance and competion among first generation and low income 
students and individuals with disabilities. Without funding these 
activities would go unsupported by training.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or 
Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 60
