SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OSHA awards grants to non-profit 
organizations to provide training under the Occupation Safety and 
Health Act. To obtain such a grant, an organization must complete the 
training grant application. The OSHA uses the information in this 
application to evaluate: the organization's competence to provide the 
proposed training (including the qualifications of the personnel who 
manage and implement the training); the goals and objectives of the 
proposed training program; a work plan that describes in detail the 
tasks that the organization will implement to meet these goals and 
objectives; the appropriateness of the proposed costs; and compliance 
with Federal regulations governing nonprocurement, debarment, and 
suspension, maintaining a drug-free workplace, and lobbying activities. 
Also required is a program summary that Agency officials use to review 
and evaluate the highlights of the overall proposal. After awarding a 
training grant, the OSHA uses the work plan and budget information 
provided in the application to monitor the organization's progress in 
meeting training goals and objectives, as well as planned expenditures. 
The initial grant award is for one year.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is currently approved by the OMB under the PRA 
and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, 
notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally 
be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of 
information if the collection of information does not display a 
currently valid OMB control number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The 
DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB 
Control Number 1218-0020. The current OMB approval is scheduled to 
expire on November 30, 2010; however, it should be noted that 
information collections submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month 
extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see 
the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 21, 
2010 (75 FR 57503).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to ensure the appropriate consideration, 
comments should reference OMB Control Number 1218-0020. The OMB is 
particularly interested in comments that:
     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
     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.
