FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request a copy of the information collection requirements, explanatory information, or related materials, contact Hope Grey at the addresses above or by phone at (703) 358–2482. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). The OMB control number for the collection of information for the Private Stewardship Grants Program is 1018–0118, which expires July 31, 2005. We have sent a request to OMB to renew its approval of this collection of information. OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove our request for renewal, but may respond in as early as 30 days. To ensure consideration, send your comments to OMB by the date listed in the DATES section. Federal agencies may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. On January 21, 2005, we published in the Federal Register (70 FR 3221) a 60day notice of our intent to request renewal of this information collection authority from OMB. In that notice, we solicited public comments for 60 days, ending on March 23, 2005. We received one comment regarding this notice. The commenter expressed opposition to the awarding of grants to gun clubs and requested a list of 2003 PSGP grant recipients. We note the concerns raised by this individual; however, under the PSPG, all private landowners are eligible to receive funding for on-theground conservation actions that benefit at-risk species. We have not made any changes to our information collection as a result of the comment. A list of 2003 awards is online at http:// endangered.fes.gov/grants/ private_stewardship/FY2003/ index.html. The PSGP provides grants and other assistance on a competitive basis to individuals and groups engaged in private conservation efforts that benefit species listed or proposed as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act, candidate species, or other at-risk species. In implementing the PSGP, we request project proposals from the public. For projects selected for funding, we also request information to satisfy Federal reporting requirements. These requests constitute an information collection requiring OMB approval. Congress established the Private Stewardship Grants Program (PSGP) in 2002. Pending appropriations, a notice of funding availability is posted SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\02AUN1.SGM 02AUN1
