SUMMARY: The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 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. This pre-clearance consultation program helps to ensure that requested data can be 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 can be properly assessed. The purpose of this Notice is to solicit comments about the proposed IMLS evaluation of four specific grant programs: The Native American Library Services: Basic Grants; Native American Library Services: Enhancement Grants; Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services; and Native Hawaiian Library Services. The purpose of the evaluation will be to determine how well the agency's grant-making aligns with the needs of communities served by these specific programs; to lay a foundation for improving the quality, reach, and impact of the agency's grant programs in the future; and to inform increasing organizational capacity of eligible applicants to submit high-quality grant applications and of awardees to successfully complete their award responsibilities.

NOTICE; DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT
Regulatory and Administrative Requirement Flexibilities Available to Native American Programs During CY 2022 and CY 2023 to Tribal Grantees To Assist With Recovery and Relief Efforts on Behalf of Families Affected by Presidentially Declared Disasters
87 FR 473, (PDF)
SUMMARY: This notification advises the public of waivers and flexibilities from HUD requirements for its Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG), Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG), and Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant (NHHBG) grantees located in areas that are covered by Presidentially Declared Disasters (PDDs). A PDD is a major disaster or emergency declared under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act that activates an array of federal programs to assist in the response and recovery efforts. When they occur, disasters and their aftermath impose significant barriers and challenges for housing programs to overcome or operate. To provide relief during such challenging times for its IHBG, ICDBG, and NHHBG grantees, HUD is publishing this standing Notice of regulatory and administrative requirement flexibilities to assist affected grantees. Instructions are provided below on how to apply for flexibilities. A grantee may request a waiver or flexibility of a HUD requirement not listed in this standing Notice and receive an expedited review of the request if the grantee demonstrates that the waiver or flexibility is needed to assist its disaster relief and recovery efforts. Please note that the waivers and flexibilities in this Notice do not apply to the various COVID- relief related programs administered by the Office of Native American Programs (IHBG-CARES, IHBG-ARP, ICDBG-CARES, ICDBG-ARP, and NHHBG-ARP) because HUD has issued separate waivers and alternative requirements that apply to those programs, as further outlined in the Implementation and Waiver Notices governing those programs.
