Federal Student Aid

    Type of Review: Extension.
    Title of Collection: Teacher Education Assistance for College and 
Higher Education Grant (TEACH) Eligibility Regulations.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0084.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 233,276.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 32,739.
    Abstract: The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher 
Education (TEACH) Grant program is a non-need-based grant program that 
provides up to $4,000 per year to students who are enrolled in an 
eligible program and who agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-
income elementary or secondary school for at least four years within 
eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant was 
awarded. The TEACH Grant program regulations are required to ensure 
accountability of the program participants, both institutions and 
student recipients, for proper program administration, to determine 
eligibility to receive program benefits and to prevent fraud and abuse 
of program funds. The regulations include both recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements. The recordkeeping by the school allows for 
review of compliance with the regulations during on-site institution 
reviews. The Department uses the required reporting to allow for close-
out of institutions that are no longer participating or who lose 
eligibility to participate in the program.
