Title: Job Access and Reverse Commute Program
(OMB Number: 2132-0563)
Abstract: The Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) Program authorized federal funding to states for areas with a population of less than 200,000 and designated recipients in urbanized areas of 200,000 persons to address the unique transportation challenges faced by welfare recipients and low-income persons seeking to get and keep jobs. The (JARC) program has had a dramatic impact on the lives of thousands of welfare recipients and low-income families, helping individuals successfully transition from welfare to work and reach needed employment support services such as childcare and job training activities. On October 1, 2013, the (JARC) Program was repealed by Congress under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). However, to meet federal program oversight responsibilities, FTA must continue to collect information under the project management stage; until the period of availability expires; the funds are fully expended; the funds are rescinded by Congress; or the funds are otherwise reallocated.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 52,080 hours.
Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
