Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 43036 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 13, 2017 / Notices Type of Information Collection: Extension, without change, of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0130. FEMA Forms: None. Abstract: The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Number of Respondents: 1,075,000. Number of Responses: 1,075,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 181,995 hours.

Long, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of 
Homeland Security, under Executive Order 12148, as follows:

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State 
of Texas resulting from Hurricane Harvey beginning on August 23, 
2017, and continuing, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that 
special cost sharing arrangements are warranted regarding Federal 
funds provided under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (the ``Stafford 
Act'').
    Therefore, I amend my declaration of August 25, 2017, to 
authorize a 90 percent Federal cost share for debris removal, 
including direct Federal assistance; and a 100 percent Federal cost 
share for emergency protective measures, including direct Federal 
assistance, for 30 days from the start of the incident period, and 
then a 90 percent Federal cost share thereafter.
    This adjustment to State and local cost sharing applies only to 
Public Assistance costs and direct Federal assistance eligible for 
such adjustments under the law. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster 
Relief and Emergency Assistance Act specifically prohibits a similar 
adjustment for funds provided for Other Needs Assistance (section 
408), and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (section 404). These 
funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible 
costs.
