respond to, a collection unless it has a valid OMB Control Number. This collection of information is collected under the authority of
38 U.S. Code Sections 8133(a) and 8135(a). VA will use this information, along with other documents submitted by the States to
determine the feasibility of the projects for VA participation, to meet VA requirements for a grant award and to rank the projects in
