ACTION: Notice of Information Collections; Request for Public Comments. AGENCY: I. Abstract SUMMARY: The Economic Development Administration (‘‘EDA’’), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, provides the general public and other federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and current collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). EDA has published an interim final rule (70 FR 47002) revising its regulations to reflect the amendments made to EDA’s authorizing statute, the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 (‘‘PWEDA’’), by the Economic Development Administration Reauthorization Act of 2004 (the ‘‘2004 Act’’). With limited exceptions, the interim final rule became effective on October 1, 2005. EDA is currently conducting a comprehensive review of its forms and other information collections to ensure that they correspond with the 2004 Act and with the interim final rule. EDA is soliciting public comments on the collections of information contained in this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before January 13, 2006. ADDRESSES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments to Diana H. Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, HCHB Room VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:16 Nov 10, 2005 Jkt 208001 6625, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. Written comments may also be submitted to the attention of Ms. Hynek via fax at (202) 482–4218 or via e-mail at dhynek@doc.gov. Please note that any correspondence sent by regular mail may be substantially delayed or suspended in delivery, since all regular mail sent to the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is subject to extensive security screening. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instruments and instructions should be directed to Kenneth M. Kukovich, EDA PRA Liaison, Office of Management Services, Economic Development Administration, Department of Commerce, HCHB Room 7227, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4965; email: kkukovich@eda.doc.gov. All of the EDA forms referenced in this notice are available on EDA’s Internet Web site at http://www.eda.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EDA’s mission is to lead the federal economic agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy. EDA will fulfill its mission by fostering entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity through investments in infrastructure development, capacity building and business development in order to attract private capital investments and higher-skill, higherwage jobs to regions experiencing substantial and persistent economic distress. To effectively administer and monitor its economic development assistance programs, EDA collects certain information from applicants for, and recipients of, EDA investment assistance. On August 11, 2005, EDA published an interim final rule in the Federal Register (70 FR 47002) to reflect the amendments made to EDA’s authorizing statute, PWEDA, by the 2004 Act. In addition to tracking the statutory amendments to PWEDA, the interim final rule reflects EDA’s current practices and policies in administering its economic development programs that have evolved since the promulgation of its former regulations. On September 30, 2005, EDA published a notice in the Federal Register (70 FR 57124) to (i) delay the effective date of certain provisions in the interim final rule, and (ii) extend the public comment period for the interim final rule from PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69137 October 11, 2005 to November 14, 2005. Except as otherwise provided by the September 30, 2005 notice, the interim final rule is effective as of October 1, 2005. EDA is currently conducting a comprehensive review of its forms and other information collections to ensure that they correspond with the 2004 Act and the interim final rule. EDA is soliciting public comments on the collections of information contained in this notice. EDA forms are available for downloading, completing and printing (portable document format (PDF)) on EDA’s Internet Web site at http:// www.eda.gov. Presently, EDA does not accept the electronic submission of completed forms or other information collections. These forms are not currently transaction-based, although EDA anticipates that the forms associated with the pre-application and application process will become transaction-based and able to be completed and filed on-line when EDA begins using the Department’s proposed consolidated back-office on-line grants management system (‘‘Grants On-Line’’). II. Collections of Information A. Proposal and Application for Financial Assistance (OMB Control No. 0610–0094) 1. Purpose: These information collections are necessary to determine eligibility for investment assistance under EDA’s authorizing statute and regulations, the quality of the proposed scope of work to address the pressing economic distress of a region, the merits of the activities for which investment assistance is requested, and the ability of the eligible applicant to carry out the proposed activities successfully. Eligible applicants first must submit a preapplication (ED–900P) and then be invited by EDA to submit a formal application (ED–900A). 2. Method of Collection: Paper Report. 3. Data: Agency Form Numbers: ED–900P (Pre-Application for Federal Assistance); ED–900A (Application for Federal Assistance). Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: State and local governments; Indian tribes; institutions of higher education; non-profit organizations; for-profit organizations; private individuals. Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,900 (1,100 for Form ED– 900P and 800 for Form ED–900A). Estimated Time per Response: 9 hours for each Form ED–900P; 48.5 hours for each Form ED–900A.

Notice of Petitions by Producing Firms for Determination of 
Eligibility To Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance

ACTION: Notice and opportunity for public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 251 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2341 et 
seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has received 
petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below. EDA has initiated 
separate investigations to determine whether increased imports into the 
United States of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced by each firm contributed importantly to the total or partial 
separation of the firm's workers, or threat thereof, and to a decrease 
in sales or production of each petitioning firm.
