In an effort to be compliant while maintaining functions essential to the operations of each CNCS grantee, we are therefore submitting the enclosed request under 5 CFR 1320.13 to OMB for emergency processing and approval of recordkeeping requirements.

CNCS and its grantees must ensure that national service beneficiaries are protected from harm and the recordkeeping requirements of the final rule are critical to that responsibility. Moreover, as CNCS and OMB have previously communicated, CNCS is working hard to ensure it is fully compliant with the Paperwork Reduction Act and with OMB's information collection policies and procedures.

If you have any questions, contact Amy Borgstrom at 202-606-6930 oraborgstrom@cns.gov.We sincerely thank you for your consideration of this request and your willingness to work with us in remaining fully compliant with the Paperwork Reduction Act.
