Title of Collection: The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) Annual Performance Report (APR).
OMB Control Number: 1810-0727.
Type of Review: An extension without change of a currently approved collection.
Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Governments.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 50.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,150.
Abstract: This is a request for an extension without change for the 1810-0727 College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) Annual Performance Report collection. The Office of Migrant Education (OME) is collecting information for the CAMP which is authorized under Title IV, Section 418A of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by Section 408 of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA)(20 U.S.C. 1070d-2) (special programs for students whose families are engaged in migrant and seasonal farmwork) and 2 CFR 200.328 which requires that recipients of discretionary grants submit an Annual Performance Report (APR) to best inform improvements in program outcomes and productivity.
Although the Education Department continues to use the generic 524B, OME is requesting to continue the use of a customized APR that goes beyond the generic 524B APR to facilitate the collection of more standardized and comprehensive data to inform Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) indicators, to improve the overall quality of data collected, and to increase the quality of data that can be used to inform policy decisions.
