Title of Proposal: McKinney-Vento Technical Assistance Narrative, Matrices, and Reporting Requirements.
Description of the need for the information proposed: McKinney-Vento Technical Assistance (MV-TA) Narrative, Matrices, and Reporting Requirements will allow the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) to accurately assess the experience, expertise, and overall capacity of applicants applying for technical assistance funding under the FY2011 McKinney-Vento Technical Assistance Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). They will also allow SNAPS to monitor and evaluate TA progress over the course of the grant and make necessary interventions. The new format for this type of collection also makes it easier for applicants to apply and report by reducing the time required for filling out an application and reporting forms, while retaining the utility of previous collection methods.
Agency Form Numbers
Members of the affected public: Private for-profit, not-for-profit, and public entities applying for funding as technical assistance providers under the FY2011 MV-TA NOFA.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 10 applicants × 4,080 minutes per response + 5 grant recipients × 3,600 minutes per reporting year = 58,800 total minutes per year or 980 hours per year.
