Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.

Total Burden Hours: 4,320.

Food and Nutrition Service

Title: Issuance Reconciliation Report: FNS-46.

OMB Control Number: 0584-0080.

Summary of Collection: The Food Stamp Act of 1977 (the Act) at Section 7(d) requires State agencies to report on Food Stamp Program issuance not less than monthly.

Forest Service

Title: Health Screen Questionnaire.

OMB Control Number: 0596-NEW.

Summary of Collection: The Protection Act of 1922 (16 U.S.C. 594) authorizes the Forest Service to fight fires on National Forest System lands.

Potential Start Printed Page 51927applicants are to complete forms FS-5100-30 and FS-5100-31, which are necessary to obtain their health screening information.

Need and Use of the Information: FS will collect information to determine whether an individual being considered for a position in Wildland Firefighting can carry out those duties in a manner that will not place the candidate unduly at risk due to inadequate physical fitness and health. If the information is not collected, the Government's liability risk is high, special needs of one individual may not be known, or the screening of an applicant's physical suitability would be greatly inhibited.

Description of Respondents: Individuals or households; Federal Government.

Number of Respondents: 15,000.

Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.

Total Burden Hours: 1250.

Economic Research Service

Title: Direct Certification and Its Impact on Errors in the National School Lunch Program.

OMB Control Number: 0536-NEW.

Summary of Collection: The National School Lunch (NSLP) provides federal financial assistance and commodities to schools serving lunches that meet required nutrition standards. Children living in families whose incomes are 130 percent or less of the poverty level qualify for free meals; those living in families whose incomes are between 130 and 185 percent of the poverty level qualify for reduced-price meals. All other children pay “full price” for meals, although full-price lunches are also federally subsidized. Direct certification was introduced in the early 1900s and has expanded since then. Under direct certification, information transferred directly between food stamps or welfare agencies and schools is used to “directly certify” for free meals students whose families are receiving cash welfare, food stamps, or assistance from USDA food distribution programs on Indian reservations, without requiring these students to complete applications. The Economic Research Service (ERS) is conducting a study to get information about the policy of direct certification in the NSLP, certification error rates and the impact of direct certification on rates of error, certification, and participation.

Need and Use of the Information: ERS will collect information to determine the extent to which direct certification is meeting the objectives of controlling administrative costs and facilitating program access for eligible children and whether direct certification has adversely influenced the objective of providing program benefits only to those children who qualify. ERS will get valuable information on the extent to which direct certification leads to increases in overall levels of certification for free or reduced-price meals and participation in the NSLP. Without the information, it would be difficult for USDA to assess whether future changes in the policy of direct certification is warranted.

Description of Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions; State, local, or tribal government.

Number of Respondents: 1350.

Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Other (one-time).

Total Burden Hours: 2700.

Food and Nutrition Service

Title: Repayment Demand and Program Disqualification.

OMB Control Number: 0584-0492.

Summary of Collection: In conjuction with the Food Stamp Act of 1977, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) implements regulations that provide requirements for food stamp household application, certfication, and continued eligibility for food stamp benefits. Occasionally, FNS must initiate collection action for repayment of overissued benefits resulting from inadvertent household and State agency overissuances, and overissuances due to intentional program violations. Information is collected in these instances through the appropriate State agency to document the claim of overissuance and initiate repayment.

Need and Use of the Information: State agency personnel will collect the information from individuals collecting food stamp benefits. The State agencies must maintain all records associated with this collection for a period of three years so that FNS can review documentation during compliance reviews and other audits. Without approval of this information collection, FNS would not be able to correct accidental or fraudulent overpayment errors in the Food Stamp Program.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Veterinary Services is responsible for administering these and other regulations intended to ensure that horses affected with EIA are moved interstate in a way that does not endanger the health of the U.S. equine population.

Need and Use of the Information: The information collected from forms, APHIS VS 10-11, Equine Infectious Anemia Laboratory Test and 10-12, Equine Infectious Anemia Supplemental Investigation will be used to prevent the spread of equine infectious anemia. Without the information it would be impossible for APHIS to effectively regulate the interstate movement of horses infected with EIA.
