of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential 
respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC 
published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on 
this information collection on April 29, 2014.

    2. The title of the information collection: Grant and Cooperative 
Agreement Provisions.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0107.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: Technical performance 
reports are required every 6 months; other information is submitted on 
occasion, as needed.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Grant and Cooperative 
Agreement Recipients.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 668 (450

    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to

for awarding grants and cooperative agreements (financial assistance)
