Different strategies for avoiding, minimizing and mitigating the impacts of incidental take may also be considered. Environmental review of the EIR/EIS will be conducted in accordance with the requirements of NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et. seq.), its implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), other applicable regulations, and Service procedures for compliance with those regulations. This notice is being furnished in accordance with 40 CFR 1501.7 and 1508.22 to obtain suggestions and information from other agencies and the public on the scope of issues and alternatives to be addressed in the EIR/EIS. The primary purpose of the scoping process is to identify important issues raised by the public related to the proposed action. Written comments from interested parties are invited to ensure that the full range of issues related to the permit application is identified. Comments will only be accepted in written form. All comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the official administrative record and may be made available to the public. Our practice is to make comments, including names, home addresses, home phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their names and/or homes addresses, etc., but if you wish us to consider withholding this information you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. In addition, you must present a rationale for withholding this information. This rationale must demonstrate that disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of privacy. Unsupported assertions will not meet this burden. In the absence of exceptional, documentable circumstances, this information will be released. We will always make submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives of or officials of organizations or businesses, available for public inspection in their entirety.

Land

AGENCY: National Park Service, Department of the Interior.

ACTION: Availability of Funding for Acquisition of Civil War 
Battlefield Land.

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

SUMMARY: The National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of 
funds to assist States and local communities in acquiring for permanent 
protection lands, or interests in lands, at significant Civil War 
battlefield sites.

[[Page 38101]]

    Under Public Law (Pub. L.) 110-5, making appropriations to the 
Department of Interior in FY 2007, Congress appropriated $4 million 
from the Land & Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to assist non-federal 
efforts to acquire and preserve Civil War battlefield lands. NPS seeks 
proposals from State and local governments--or from qualified non-
profit historic preservation organizations acting through an agency of 
State or local government--for the non-federal acquisition of 
significant Civil War battlefield land.
    Project proposals are subject to the following requirements.
    1. These funds must be matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis with 
non-federal dollars. That is, the federal dollars can pay for no more 
than one-half of the acquisition cost.
    2. The purchase price must be supported by a qualified appraisal 
that has been approved by NPS as meeting the Uniform Appraisal 
Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions.
    3. The battlefield land acquired with the assistance of these funds 
must be permanently protected from inappropriate development through 
conveyance of a perpetual easement to a public historic preservation 
agency.
    NPS will give priority to acquisition of land, or interests in 
land, within the ``core'' areas of Priority I and Priority II 
battlefields, as identified by the Congressionally-chartered Civil War 
Sites Advisory Commission (CWSAC). Among potential projects, NPS will 
give highest priority to acquisition projects that can be completed 
within the immediate future.
    Proposals may be submitted at any time, and must include:
(1) CWSAC Priority Listing and Map
    The applicant must include the CWSAC priority listing and document 
that the proposed acquisition lies within the battlefield core and/or 
study area, as defined by the CWSAC. Applicants must submit a U.S. 
Geological Survey quadrangle map with the boundaries of the proposed 
acquisition clearly drawn.
(2) Threat to the Battlefield
    The applicant must demonstrate that the battlefield is imminently 
threatened. The nature, the extent, and the level of severity of the 
threat to the battlefield must be clearly and convincingly stated. 
Further, the applicant must describe how and to what extent the 
proposed acquisition addresses the described threat. In cases where 
there is minimal threat, applications will be considered if there is a 
stated compelling reason why the acquisition of the property at this 
time is a better use of LWCF funds than waiting for a more threatened 
property.
(3) Ability To Secure Non-Federal Match
    An applicant that has secured matching funds must list all sources 
of those funds. The applicant must certify that the non-federal 
matching funds are either ``in-hand'' or otherwise committed in writing 
at the time of application. Third-party matching share commitments must 
be documented by letter from the third party. Matching share 
commitments contingent upon receipt of federal funds from this program 
are acceptable.
    An applicant that has not yet secured matching funds must submit a 
specific, credible plan for raising the necessary matching funds. The 
plan must identify potential sources of funds. It must include a 
proposed schedule, usually not more than 120 days, for securing funds 
or commitments of funds.
(4) Immediacy of Acquisition
    The applicant must demonstrate that the owner of the property to be 
acquired is willing to sell the land at an agreed-upon price. 
Acceptable documentation includes a contract or contingent contract to 
buy the land, or a letter from the owner indicating willingness to 
enter into such a contract at a specified price. The applicant should 
include a schedule for completion of the acquisition within the near 
future.
