Comments

A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal Register on October 14, 2009. This comment period ended December 13, 2009. No public comments were received from this Notice.

Description: The Corporation is seeking approval of the renewal of the President's Volunteer Service Awards application. The President's Volunteer Service Awards were created by Executive Order on January 30, 2003. The awards are administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Under the Executive Order, the Corporation was directed to (among other things) design and recommend programs to recognize individuals, schools, and organizations that excel in their efforts to support volunteer service and civic participation, especially with respect to students in primary schools, secondary schools, and institutions of higher learning. The President's Volunteer Service Awards meet this requirement. In order to recognize individuals, schools and organizations, the program must collect information about the individuals and organizations and their activities to verify that they have earned the award.

The information collected will be used by the Program primarily to identify recipients of the President's Volunteer Service Awards and the Call to Service Awards (4000 hours or more.) Individuals or organizations can be nominated by an organization or third party. The nominations will be reviewed by the administering agency for compliance and awards will be made on that basis. Information also will be used to assure the integrity of the Program (so that, for example, an individual or organization does not receive an award twice for the same project), for reporting on the Start Printed Page 2858accomplishments of the Program, for the public awareness campaign (such as press releases and Web site information on winning projects), and to further the purposes of the Executive Order (such as fostering partnerships and coordination of projects and to promote civic engagement).
