early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal

its statutory obligations. The Leader, Regulatory Information 
Management Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes 
that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior

collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of 
review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or 
reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) 
Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) 
Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or 
Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment.

    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: The Joint Application for the Leveraging Educational 
Assistance Partnership (SLEAP) and Special Leveraging Educational 
Assistance and Partnership (LEAP) Programs.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
      Responses: 56.
      Burden Hours: 112.
    Abstract: The LEAP and SLEAP programs use matching Federal and 
State funds to provide a nationwide system of grants to assist 
postsecondary educational students with substantial financial need. On 
this application the states provide information the Department requires 
to obligate funds and for program management. The signed assurances 
legally bind the states to administer the programs according to 
regulatory and statutory requirements. With the clearance of this 
collection, the Department is seeking to automate the application for 
web-based applying for both the LEAP Program and the subprogram, SLEAP. 
There are no significant changes to the current LEAP form data 
elements. There are, however, some additional items pertaining to the 
SLEAP Program which combines the application into one form for both 
programs.
