L. 109–295 (Section 550), directed the Department of Homeland Security to promulgate and enforce regulations to enhance the security of the nation’s high risk chemical facilities. On April 9, 2007, the Department issued an Interim Final Rule, implementing this statutory mandate. (72 FR 17688). Section 550 requires a risk-based approach to security. To facilitate this approach, the Department is employing a risk assessment methodology known as the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). The CSAT is a series of public web-based computer applications: Help Desk, User Registration, Top-Screen, Security Vulnerability Assessment, Site Security Plan, and Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) Authorization. All information collected supports the Department’s effort to reduce the risk of a successful terrorist attack against chemical facilities. These CSAT collections either directly or indirectly support the identification of high risk facilities, the determination of the risk tiers of the facilities, the review and approval of assessments and plans for security measures at the facilities, and/or the protection of Chemicalterrorism Vulnerability Information that would, if disclosed, substantially assist terrorists in planning and targeting the facilities. The Office of Management and Budget is particularly interested in comments which: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

The properties were reviewed using information provided to HUD by Federal landholding agencies regarding unutilized and underutilized buildings and real property controlled by such agencies or by GSA regarding its inventory of excess or surplus Federal property. This Notice is also published in order to comply with the December 12, 1988 Court Order in National Coalition for the Homeless v. Veterans Administration, No. 88–2503– OG (D.D.C.). Properties reviewed are listed in this Notice according to the following categories: Suitable/available, suitable/ unavailable, suitable/to be excess, and unsuitable. The properties listed in the three suitable categories have been reviewed by the landholding agencies, and each agency has transmitted to HUD: (1) Its intention to make the property available for use to assist the homeless, (2) its intention to declare the property excess to the agency’s needs, or (3) a statement of the reasons that the property cannot be declared excess or made available for use as facilities to assist the homeless. Properties listed as suitable/available will be available exclusively for homeless use for a period of 60 days from the date of this Notice. Where property is described as for ‘‘off-site use only’’ recipients of the property will be required to relocate the building to their own site at their own expense. Homeless assistance providers interested in any such property should send a written expression of interest to HHS, addressed to John Hicks, Division of Property Management, Program Support Center, HHS, room 5B–17, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857; (301) 443–2265.

For complete details concerning the processing of applications, the reader is encouraged to refer to the interim rule governing this program, 24 CFR part 581. For properties listed as suitable/to be excess, that property may, if subsequently accepted as excess by GSA, be made available for use by the homeless in accordance with applicable law, subject to screening for other Federal use. At the appropriate time, HUD will publish the property in a E:\FR\FM\23NON1.SGM 23NON1
