SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Description: On April 21, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Edward M Kennedy Serve America Act, Public Law 111-13 (“The Serve America Act”). The Serve America Act reauthorizes and expands national service programs administered by the Corporation for National & Community Service (“the Corporation”) by amending the National & Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973. The Corporation published a final rule to implement changes to the operation of the National Service Trust under the Serve America Act on August 20, 2010.

This new information collection request implements provisions of the Serve America Act (42 U.S.C. 12501), which authorize AmeriCorps members to transfer all or a part of an education award, with limitations on who can transfer an award and who can receive the transferred award.

We are therefore submitting the enclosed request under 5 CFR 1320.13 to OMB for emergency processing and approval of information collection activities.
