AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1 52898 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 179 / Monday, September 17, 2007 / Notices its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed continuing information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning the adequacy of two forms FEMA uses to gather certain information about the floodplain management activities of communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The forms are used to gather information about a community’s floodplain management regulations, administrative and enforcement procedures, flood insurance studies, and basic information pertaining to names, addresses, and phone numbers of individuals responsible for a community’s floodplain management program. The information gathered on the subject forms pertain to a community’s participation in the NFIP. The NFIP was established by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 (the Act). Section 1315 of the Act requires the adoption of permanent land use and control measures which are consistent with the comprehensive criteria of land management and use under section 1361. In 44 CFR 59.24 requirements are SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: established for the continued eligibility to participate in the NFIP based upon implementing an adequate community based floodplain management program.

Type of Information Collection: Revision of currently approved collection. OMB Number: 1660–0023. Form Numbers: Form 81–68 (Community Assistance Report); Form 81–69 (Community Contact Report). Abstract: The forms that are the subject of this OMB review, the ‘‘Community Contact Report’’ (FF 81– 68) and the ‘‘Community Visit Report’’ (FF 81–69) are the documents used to record the information gathered during CACs and CAVs. The data obtained from the Community Assistance Contact (CAC) and Community Assistance Visit (CAV) forms information collection effort is used to assist with the management of the NFIP. A major Number of respondents (A) Data collection activity/instrument objective of the NFIP is to assure that participating communities are achieving the flood loss reduction objectives of the program. To achieve this objective, FEMA’s Mitigation Directorate implemented a process to evaluate the floodplain management assistance needed by communities and how well communities are implementing their floodplain management programs. By determining the assistance needed and how well communities are performing their responsibilities, FEMA can identify, prevent, and resolve floodplain management issues before problems arise that require enforcement actions. The two key methods FEMA uses in determining community assistance needs are through the CAC and CAV, which serve to provide a systematic means of monitoring community NFIP compliance. Through the CAC and CAV, FEMA can also determine to what extent communities are achieving the flood loss reduction objectives of the NFIP. By providing assistance to communities, the CAC and CAV also serve to enhance FEMA’s goals of reducing future flood losses, thereby achieving the cost-containment objectives of the NFIP.

its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, 
invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this 
opportunity to comment on a proposed continuing information collection. 
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice 
seeks comments concerning the adequacy of two forms FEMA uses to gather 
certain information about the floodplain management activities of 
communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program 
(NFIP). The forms are used to gather information about a community's 
floodplain management regulations, administrative and enforcement 
procedures, flood insurance studies, and basic information pertaining

community's floodplain management program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The information gathered on the subject 
forms pertain to a community's participation in the NFIP. The NFIP was 
established by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 (the Act). 
Section 1315 of the Act requires the adoption of permanent land use and 
control measures which are consistent with the comprehensive criteria 
of land management and use under section 1361. In 44 CFR 59.24 
requirements are established for the continued eligibility to 
participate in the NFIP based upon implementing an adequate community 
based floodplain management program. The information gathered with the 
forms is used to evaluate the adequacy of a community's floodplain 
management program as it relates to continued participation in the 
NFIP.

    Abstract: The forms that are the subject of this OMB review, the 
``Community Contact Report'' (FF 81-68) and the ``Community Visit

gathered during CACs and CAVs. The data obtained from the Community 
Assistance Contact (CAC) and Community Assistance Visit (CAV) forms 
information collection effort is used to assist with the management of

communities are achieving the flood loss reduction objectives of the

implemented a process to evaluate the floodplain management assistance 
needed by communities and how well communities are implementing their 
floodplain management programs. By determining the assistance needed 
and how well communities are performing their responsibilities, FEMA
