Title: Head Start Grant Application and Budget Instruments.
OMB No.: 0970-0207.
Description: The Office of Head Start is proposing to renew, without changes, the Head Start Grant Application and Budget Instrument, which standardizes the grant application information that is requested from all Head Start and Early Head Start grantees applying for continuation grants. The application and budget forms are available in a password-protected, Web-based system. Completed applications can be transmitted electronically to Regional and Central Offices. The Administration for Children and Families believes that this application form makes the process of applying for Head Start program grants more efficient for applicants.
Respondents: Head Start and Early Head Start grantees.
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|
|HS grant and budget instrument||1,600||1||33||52,800|
|Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours:||52,800|
