DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Economic Research Service Alaska Dairy Fund Title: Food Security Supplement to the Current Population Survey. OMB Control Number: 0536–0043. Summary of Collection: The Food Security Supplement is sponsored by the Economic Research Service (ERS) as a research and evaluation activity authorized under Section 17 of the Food Stamp Act of 1977. ERS is collaborating with the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) and the Bureau of Census to continue this program of research and development. The Food Stamp Program (FSP) is currently the primary source of nutrition assistance for low-income Americans enabling households to improve their diet by increasing their food purchasing power. As the nation’s primary public program for ensuring food security and alleviating hunger, USDA needs to regularly monitor these conditions among its target population. This need requires that USDA continue basic data collection, analysis, and evaluation. Need and Use of the Information: ERS will collect information from the Current Population Survey Food Security Supplement to routinely obtain data from a large, representative national sample in order to develop a measure that can be used to track the prevalence of food insecurity and hunger within the U.S. population, as a whole, and in selected population subgroups, and to continue development and improvement of methods for measuring these conditions. The data collected will partially fulfill the requirements of the Congressionally mandated 10-Year Plan for the National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Program. Description of Respondents: Individuals or Households. Number of Respondents: 56,200. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 7,155.

    The following example, using three farms, illustrates the payment 
calculation process:
    Example:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                     cwt.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total Three Year Production:
  Eligible Farmer 1........                             150,000
  Eligible Farmer 2........                              90,000
  Eligible Farmer 3........                              40,000
                                     -----------------------------------
    Total Production................                             280,000
Percentage of Total Production:
  Eligible Farmer 1........          150,000 / 280,000 = 53.57%
  Eligible Farmer 2........           90,000 / 280,000 = 32.14%
  Eligible Farmer 3........           40,000 / 280,000 = 14.29%
                                     -----------------------------------
                                                                    100%
Payment:
  Eligible Farmer 1........       53.57% x 1,000,000 = $535,700
  Eligible Farmer 2........       32.14% x 1,000,000 = $321,400
  Eligible Farmer 3........       14.29% x 1,000,000 = $142,900
                                     -----------------------------------
                                                              $1,000,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If the calculations show that a farmer's payment would be greater 
than the farmer's FLP debt, the payment will be set equal to the debt 
and the excess entered into new calculations as shown above, but 
excluding that farmer, to be distributed among the remaining eligible 
farmers.

V. Processing and Application of Funds

    (a) When all production amounts have been obtained, the State 
Executive Director (SED), Alaska, with concurrence of the Deputy 
Administrator for Farm Loan Programs, will make the calculations 
required by this Notice. Exhibit 2 will then be used to notify the 
borrowers of:
    (i) Their total production reported to the Agency;

    (iii) That 80 percent of the total projected amount they are to 
receive will be applied to their accounts immediately; and
    (iv) Their right to appeal to the National Appeals Division, USDA.
    (b) After the exhaustion of all appeal rights, the State Executive 
Director (SED), Alaska, with concurrence of the Deputy Administrator 
for Farm Loan Programs, will make any additional calculations required 
and notify the eligible farmer and the Agency's Finance Office of the 
remaining amount that will be applied to their account.

according to 7 CFR part 1951, subpart A.
    (d) The record of SED calculations will be retained and filed in 
the State Office.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    A request for clearance of the information collections associated 
with this notice has not been submitted to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) under 5 CFR 1320.3(c) because the collection of
