SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Education (ED), in 
accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 
3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with 
an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing 
collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact 
of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's 
information collection requirements and provide the requested data in 
the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed 
information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The 
Department of Education is especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to 
the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be 
processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden 
accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the 
Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, 
including through the use of information technology. Please note that 
written comments received in response to this notice will be considered 
public records.
    Title of Collection: Native American Language ([email protected]) Application 
    OMB Control Number: 1810-0731.
    Type of Review: A reinstatement of a previously approved 
information collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 50.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,500.
    Abstract: On February 27, 2020 Department of Education (Department) 
published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Priorities for 
the Native American Language Program ([email protected]) (Vol. 85, No. 39, pages 
11322-11329). The priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection 
criteria are proposed to foster the development, improvement, 
expansion, or maintenance of programs that support elementary or 
secondary schools in using Native American and Alaska Native languages 
as the primary language of instruction. At the time the notice of 
proposed priorities was published, no Information Collection Request 
was submitted. We are publishing a separate 30-day Federal Register 
notice to solicit public comment on the paperwork burden now. This is a 
request for a reinstatement with change of a previously approved 
information collection request. The previous application was used to 
implement the first [email protected] competition under the statutory changes made 
to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act by the Every Student 
Succeeds Act, under a wavier of rulemaking (section 437(d)(1) of the 
General Education Provisions Act).
