60-Day Notice for IAF Questions Related to Consultation With 
Indigenous Grantees and Tribal Nations (PRA)

AGENCY: Inter-American Foundation.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Inter-American Foundation (IAF), as part of its continuing 
efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a 
preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and 
federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or 
continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995. This program helps ensure that requested data is 
provided in the desired format; reporting burden (time and financial 
resources) is minimized; collection instruments are clearly understood; 
and the impact of collection requirements on respondents is properly 

DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the 
address section below within 60 days from the date of this publication 
in the Federal Register.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Natalia Mandrus, Inter-American Foundation, 
via email to [email protected] and Edward Gracia, Inter-American 
Foundation, via email to [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with President Biden's January 
26, 2021 memorandum on Tribal Consultation and Strengthening Nation-to-
Nation Relationships, and Executive Order 13175, Consultation and 
Coordination with Tribal Governments (November 6, 2000), the IAF is 
committed to engaging in meaningful dialogue with Tribal Leaders. 
Currently, the IAF is soliciting comments concerning the information 
collection of organizations that may be Indigenous-led or Indigenous-
serving in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States. The 
questions would give such organizations an opportunity to participate 
in the design and fulfilment of U.S. policies and actions that may 
impact their interests. Also, the IAF would like to gauge interest on 
grantee exchanges with Tribal Nations in the United States in order to 
share best practices.
    The IAF is particularly interested in comments which:

--Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary 
for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
--Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
--Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and
--Can help the agency minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.

    A Notice by the Inter-American Foundation on June 3, 2021.

General Counsel.
