Title of Collection: Impact Aid Program—Application for Section 7002 Assistance.
OMB Control Number: 1810-0036.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 323.
Abstract: The U.S. Department of Education is requesting approval for the Application for Assistance under Section 7002 of Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This application is for a grant program otherwise known as Impact Aid Payments for Federal Property. Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) that have lost taxable property due to Federal activities request financial assistance by completing an annual application. Regulations for Section 7002 of the Impact Aid Program are found at 34 CFR 222, Subpart B.
Applicants prepare and submit these applications through an e-application on ED's Impact Aid Grant System website. The e-application offers recurring LEA applicants significant advantages in preparing the application because it pre-populates much of the LEA's identifying information and Federal property data. The e-application automatically checks for completion of all necessary items and includes arithmetic checks for table subtotals and the application total. This software reduces the number of errors in applications submitted to ED.
