Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The information is being collected to select grantees in this statutorily-created competitive grant program (if it is ever funded again by the Congress). More importantly, the information is being used to monitor the performance of grantees to ensure that they meet statutory and program goals and requirements.
Members of the affected public: Certain Hispanic-serving institutions of higher education: 40 applicants and 30 grantees.

Status of proposed information collection: OMB approved an emergency paperwork clearance for this information collection and assigned it OMB Control No. 2528-0182, expiration date March 31, 2000. The information collection was allowed to expire because Congress stopped funding the program. However, there are ongoing monitoring and reporting responsibilities for the existing grants which will require an information collection control number.Start Signature
