To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: Emergency Response Grants Regulations—42 CFR Part 51— (OMB No. 0930–0229)—Extension This rule implements section 501(m) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C 290aa), which authorizes the Secretary to make noncompetitive grants, contracts or cooperative agreements to public entities to enable such entities to address emergency substance abuse or mental health needs in local communities. The rule establishes criteria for determining that a substance abuse or mental health emergency exists, the minimum content for an application, and reporting requirements for recipients of such funding. SAMHSA will use the information in the applications to make a determination that the requisite need exists; that the mental health and/or substance abuse needs are a direct result of the precipitating event; that no other local, State, tribal or Federal funding sources available to address the need; Number of respondents 42 CFR citation that there is an adequate plan of services; that the applicant has appropriate organizational capability; and, that the budget provides sufficient justification and is consistent with the documentation of need and the plan of services. Eligible applicants may apply to the Secretary for either of two types of substance abuse and mental health emergency response grants: Immediate awards and Intermediate awards. The former are designed to be funded up to $50,000, or such greater amount as determined by the Secretary on a caseby-case basis, and are to be used over the initial 90-day period commencing as soon as possible after the precipitating event; the latter awards require more documentation, including a needs assessment, other data and related budgetary detail. The Intermediate awards have no predefined budget limit. Typically, Intermediate awards would be used to meet systemic mental health and/or substance abuse needs during the recovery period following the Immediate award period. Such awards may be used for up to one year, with a possible second year supplement based on submission of additional required information and data. This program is an approved user of the PHS–5161 application form, approved by OMB under control number 0920–0428. The quarterly financial status reports in 51d.10(a)(2) and (b)(2) are as permitted by 45 CFR 92.41(b); the final program report, financial status report and final voucher in 51d.10(a)(3) and in 51d.10(b)(3–4) are in accordance with 45 CFR 92.50(b).

Notice of availability and 30-day public comment period. ACTION: The Nature Conservancy (Applicant or TNC) has applied to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) for an enhancement of survival permit pursuant to Section 10(a)(1)(A) of the Endangered Species Act (Act). The Applicant has been assigned permit number TE–099809–0. The requested permit, which is for a period of 20 years, would authorize take of the endangered Gila topminnow (Poeciliopsis occidentalis occidentalis) and desert pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius) as a result of ongoing watershed improvement activities on TNC-owned property within the Aravaipa watershed identified in the application, Safe Harbor Agreement (TNC Agreement), and associated documents in Graham and Pinal counties, Arizona. Implementation of the TNC Agreement will reestablish Gila topminnow and desert pupfish in three south rim tributaries of Aravaipa Creek. DATES: To be considered, written comments must be received on or before March 28, 2005. ADDRESSES: Persons wishing to review the application, TNC Agreement, and ‘‘Low Effect’’ determination may obtain copies by writing to the Regional Director, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, P.O. Box 1306, Room 4102, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87103, or by contacting the Field Supervisor, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, 2321 West Royal Palm Road, Suite 103, Phoenix, Arizona 85021–4951; phone: (602) 242–0210. Documents relating to the application will be available for public inspection by written request, by SUMMARY: VerDate jul<14>2003 18:49 Feb 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 appointment only, during normal business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, Phoenix, Arizona. Written data or comments concerning the application and TNC Agreement should be submitted to the Field Supervisor, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, 2321 West Royal Palm Road, Suite 103, Phoenix, Arizona 85021–4951. Please refer to permit number TE–099809–0 (TNC) when submitting comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marty Tuegel at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, 201 N. Bonita Avenue, Suite 141, Tucson, Arizona 85745; phone: (520) 670–6150 x232. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Applicant plans to reestablish populations of Gila topminnow and desert pupfish (covered species) on its properties within the approximately 537 mi2 (14,000 km2) Aravaipa watershed, Graham and Pinal counties, Arizona. Gila topminnow and desert pupfish are native to the Gila River basin. Based upon extensive fish sampling within the watershed, neither species is known to be present in the watershed. The Applicant, in cooperation with the Service, has prepared the TNC Agreement to provide a conservation benefit to, and allow for take of, Gila topminnow and desert pupfish. Based upon guidance in the Service’s June 17, 1999, Final Safe Harbor Policy, if an agreement and its associated permit are not expected to individually or cumulatively have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment or other natural resources, the agreement/permit may be categorically excluded from undergoing National Environmental Policy Act review. The TNC Agreement qualifies as a ‘‘Low Effect’’ agreement, thus, this action is a categorical exclusion. The ‘‘Low Effect’’ determination for the TNC Agreement is also available for public comment. This notice is provided pursuant to Section 10(c) of the Act and National Environmental Policy Act regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). The TNC Agreement as currently written is expected to provide a net conservation benefit to the Gila topminnow and desert pupfish. The TNC Agreement and its associated permit will also provide protection to the Applicant against further regulation under the Endangered Species Act for its ongoing private land management activities in not only areas where PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9093 populations of covered species are reestablished, but also in habitat the covered species disperse into, as a result of implementation of the TNC Agreement. Section 9 of the Act prohibits the ‘‘taking’’ of threatened or endangered species. However, the Service, under limited circumstances, may issue permits to take threatened and endangered wildlife species incidental to, and not the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities. Regulations governing permits for endangered and threatened species are at 50 CFR 17.22 and 50 CFR 17.32, respectively. Joy E.
