SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Bureau of Indian Education Higher

published in a 60 day comment notice which included the Higher

2007 (72 FR 58680). A review of the Higher Education Grant Program
Annual Report Form (OMB 1076-0106) determined the information
collected no longer needs clearance because it is information already
gathered under Higher Education Grant Application Form, OMB
1076-0101. Tribal employees, under Pub. L. 93-638 acting as
Federal agents, prepared the report. The information collection under
1076-0101 is mandatory to be considered for a benefit.
