  1. Purpose. To announce the extension of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval of form ETA 90-2.

  2. Background. Section 410 of The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act [the Stafford Act] provides for benefit assistance to "any individual unemployed as a result of a major disaster." State Workforce Agencies (SWAs), through agreements between each state and the Secretary of Labor, act as agents of the Secretary for the purpose of providing assistance to applicants in the various states who are unemployed as a result of a major disaster. Section 423 of the Stafford Act provides for appeal time frames and procedures. The instructions for completing the ETA 90-2 are contained in ETA Handbook 356, 2nd Edition (January 2003) which also was approved by OMB. It will be issued under separate cover.

  3. OMB Approval. The reporting requirements are approved by OMB according to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 under OMB approval No. 1205-0051 to expire January 31, 2005. Respondentís obligation to reply to these reporting requirements are mandatory (20 CFR Part 625).

  4. Disclosure Statement. Persons are not required to respond to this collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1/6 hour per response, which includes the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining collected information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection, including suggestions for reducing this burden to the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workforce Security, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room S-4231, Washington, D.C. 20210 (Paperwork Reduction Project 1205-0051).
