Title: Native Employment Works (NEW) Program Plan Guidance and Report Requirements.

OMB No.: 0970-0174.

Description: The Native Employment Works (NEW) program plan is the application for NEW program funding. As approved by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), it documents how the grantee will carry out its NEW program. The NEW program plan guidance provides instructions for preparing a NEW program plan and explains the process for plan submission every third year. The NEW program report provides information on the activities and accomplishments of grantees' NEW programs. The NEW program report and instructions specify the program data that NEW grantees report annually.

Respondents: Federally recognized Indian Tribes and Tribal organizations that are NEW program grantees.

Annual Burden Estimates

InstrumentNumber of respondentsNumber of responses per respondentAverage burden hours per responseTotal burden hours
NEW program plan guidance* 26129754
NEW program report** 48115720
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,474.
* 79 grantees divided by 3 (because grantees submit the NEW plan once every 3 years) = 26.
** We estimate that 48 of the 79 NEW grantees will not include their NEW programs in P.L. 102-477 projects and therefore will submit the NEW program report to HHS.
