Description: Since the President's Call to Service, many Americans have expressed a renewed desire to serve their country by volunteering in their community. Now, we have an obligation to ensure that Americans have quality opportunities to serve. The Corporation for National and Community Service (the ``Corporation'') has amended several provisions relating to the AmeriCorps national service program, and has added a rule to clarify the Corporation's requirements for program sustainability, performance measures and evaluation, capacitybuilding activities by AmeriCorps members, qualifications for tutors, and other requirements. The implementation of these changes through the rulemaking process includes ensuring the Corporation's information collection instruments accurately reflect these issues. In an effort to be compliant while maintaining functions essential to the operations of each State Commission and AmeriCorps program, we are submitting the enclosed request to OMB for approval of information collection activities. This submission includes application instructions for state commissions to allow subgrantees to submit grant applications.
