Privacy Act of 1974; Notice of a Computer Matching Program Between the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 69701-69703 [E7-23846]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2007 / Notices rmajette on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES where the action’s direct and indirect emissions have the potential to emit one or more of the criteria pollutants or precursors, in the case of ozone and PM2.5, at emission rates equal to or exceeding the prescribed rates at 40 CFR 93.153(b), or where the action encompasses 10 percent or more of a NAA or maintenance area’s total emissions inventory for that pollutant. In the case of New York County, the prescribed annual rates are 50 tons of VOCs and 100 tons of NOX (ozone precursors in moderate 8-hour ozone NAA and PM2.5 precursors in PM2.5 NAA), 100 tons of CO (CO maintenance area), 100 tons of PM10 (moderate PM10 NAA), 100 tons of PM2.5 (PM2.5 NAA), and 100 tons of SO2 (PM2.5 precursor in PM2.5 NAA). LMDC has determined that the total annual direct and indirect emissions of all such criteria pollutants from the Selected Project are less than the de minimis rates prescribed in 40 CFR 93.153(b), as currently in effect, that would trigger the requirement to conduct a general conformity determination. Therefore, a general conformity determination is not necessarily required by current federal regulations. Nonetheless, temporarily, during construction, annual NOX emissions are predicted to exceed the threshold of 25 tons per year that would apply to a severe ozone non-attainment area under the former 1-hour ozone NAAQS. Accordingly, LMDC prepared a Conformity Determination to demonstrate the Selected Project’s conformity with the ozone SIP. B. Requirements of the Conformity Determination The purpose of the conformity analysis is to establish that the Selected Project will conform to the New York ozone SIP, thereby demonstrating that total direct and indirect emissions of the ozone precursors, in this case NOX, from the Selected Project, will not: • Cause or contribute to any new violation of any standard in the area, • Interfere with provisions in the applicable SIP for maintenance of any standard, • Increase the frequency or severity of any existing violation of any standard in any area, or • Delay timely attainment of any standard or any required interim emission reductions or other milestones in the SIP for purposes of— 1. A demonstration of reasonably further progress (RFP), 2. A demonstration of attainment, or 3. A maintenance plan. For the purposes of a general conformity determination, direct and VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Dec 07, 2007 Jkt 214001 indirect emissions are defined as follows (40 CFR 93.152): • Direct Emissions: Those emissions of a criteria pollutant or its precursors that are caused or initiated by the Federal action and occur at the same time and place as the action; • Indirect Emissions: Those emissions of a criteria pollutant or its precursors that— 1. Are caused by the federal action, but may occur later in time and/or may be further removed in distance from the action itself but are still reasonably foreseeable; and 2. The federal agency can practicably control and will maintain control over due to a continuing program responsibility of the federal agency. LMDC has determined that the predicted emissions due to the Selected Project during construction that should be subject to its general conformity review include direct emissions from (1) non-road engines operating on-site during construction, (2) marine vessels carrying materials to and from the site and conducting other work along the waterfront, and (3) emissions from construction-related vehicles traveling to and from the site. C. Presumption of Conformity The Selected Project will be located in an area previously designated as a severe ozone non-attainment area under the 1-hour ozone NAAQS. The NOX emissions during two years of construction were predicted to potentially exceed the prescribed level for severe ozone non-attainment areas (25 tons per year). Therefore, LMDC has determined the following: • The methods for estimating direct and indirect emissions from the Selected Project meet the requirements of 40 CFR 93.159. • The Selected Project was predicted to result in the emission of up to 70.5 tons and 31.2 tons of NOX per year in 2008 and 2009, respectively. • All construction-related NOX emissions, including those from the Selected Project, are included in the emissions budget specified in the New York State Implementation Plan for Ozone—Phase II Alternative Attainment Demonstration. • The Selected Project does not cause or contribute to any new violation, or increase the frequency or severity of any existing violation, of the standards for the pollutants addressed in 40 CFR 93.158. • The Selected Project does not violate any requirements or milestones in the ozone SIP. Based on these determinations, the Selected Project is presumed to conform PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69701 to the ozone SIP for the project area. The activities that are presumed to conform include all construction-related activities that will receive federal funding for the East River Waterfront Esplanade and Piers Project.

Authority The matching program will be conducted pursuant to ‘‘The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100–503),’’ as amended, and OMB Circular A–129 (Revised January 1993), Policies for Federal Credit Program and Non-Tax Receivables. One of the purposes of all Executive departments and agencies— including HUD—is to implement efficient management practices for Federal credit programs. OMB Circular A–129 was issued under the authority of the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, as amended; the Budget and Accounting Act of 1950, as amended; the Debt Collection Act of 1982, as amended; and, the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, as amended. Objectives To Be Met by the Matching Program The matching program will allow USDA access to a system which permits prescreening of applicants for loans owed or guaranteed by the federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in paying a debt owed to or insured by the Government. In addition, HUD will be provided access to USDA debtor data for prescreening purposes. Records To Be Matched HUD will use records from its systems of records entitled, Single Family Insurance System CLAIMS Subsystem (HUD/SFH–02); Single Family Default Monitoring System (HUD/SFH–03); Single Family Mortgage Notes (HUD/ HS–57); and Debt Collection Asset Management System (HUD/HS–55). The debtor files for programs involved are included in these systems of records. HUD’s debtor files contain information on borrowers and co-borrowers who are currently in default (at least 90 days delinquent on their loans) or who have had their partial claim subordinate mortgage called due and payable and it has not been repaid in full or who have any outstanding claims paid during the last three years on a Title I insured or guaranteed home mortgage loan. The USDA will provide HUD with debtors files contained in its system of records entitled, Applicant/Borrower of Grantee PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 File (USDA/FmHA1). HUD is maintaining USDA’s records only as a ministerial action on behalf of USDA, not as a part of HUD’s systems of records noted above. USDA’s data contain information on individuals who have defaulted on their guaranteed loans. The USDA will retain ownership and responsibility for their system of records that they place with HUD. HUD serves only as a record location and routine use recipient for USDA’s data. Notice Procedures HUD and the USDA will notify individuals at the time of application (ensuring that routine use appears on the application form) for guaranteed or direct loans that their records will be matched to determine whether they are delinquent or in default on a federal debt. HUD and USDA will also publish notices concerning routine use disclosures in the Federal Register to inform individuals that a computer match may be performed to determine a loan applicant’s credit status with the federal government. Categories of Records/Individuals Involved The debtor records include these data elements: SSN, claim number, program code, and indication of indebtedness. Categories of records include: Records of claims and defaults, repayment agreements, credit reports, financial statements, and records of foreclosures. Categories of individuals include: Former mortgagors and purchasers of HUD-owned and home improvement loan debtors who are delinquent or default on their loans or who have had their partial claim subordinate mortgage called due and payable and it has not been repaid in full. Period of the Match Matching is expected to begin at least 40 days from the date copies of the signed (by both HUD and USDA’s Data Integrity Boards) computer matching agreement are sent to both Houses of Congress or at least 30 days from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register, whichever is later, providing no comments are received which would result in a contrary determination. The matching program will be in effect and continue for 18 months with an option to renew for 12 additional months unless one of the parties to the agreement advises the other in writing to terminate or modify the agreement.

Box 25486, Denver Federal Center, Denver, Colorado 80225, or electronically to toni_griffin@fws.gov. A copy of the CCP may be obtained by writing to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Refuge Planning, 134 Union Boulevard, Suite 300, Lakewood, Colorado 80228; or by download from <http://mountainprairie.fws.gov/planning>. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Toni Griffin, 303–236–4378 (phone); 303– 236–4792 (fax); or toni_griffin@fws.gov (e-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Souris River Basin is home to three national wildlife refuges, known collectively as the ‘‘Souris River basin refuges:’’ • Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge, along 28 miles of the Des Lacs River. • J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge, along 50 miles of the Souris River. • Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge, along 35 miles of the upper Souris River. The Souris River basin refuges were established by executive order in 1935; the purpose of each refuge is for a ‘‘refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife.’’ The Souris River basin refuges are located in a critical area of the Central Flyway, providing nesting and breeding habitat for migrating and nesting waterfowl. The J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge, in particular, has developed into one of the most important duck production areas in the United States. The American Bird Conservancy recognizes all three refuges as ‘‘Globally Important Bird Areas.’’ In addition, J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge is PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69703 designated as a regional shorebird site in the ‘‘Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network.’’ Lake Darling at Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge is designated critical habitat for the federally threatened piping plover. Representing a comprehensive collection of all North Dakota plant communities, these refuges could contain the only remaining representatives of drift plain prairie, considered a threatened resource. The draft CCP/EA was made available to the public for a 30-day review and comment period following the announcement in the Federal Register on February 2, 2007 (72 FR 5080–5081). The draft CCP/EA identified and evaluated four alternatives for managing the refuges for the next 15 years. Alternative A, the No Action alternative, reflects the current management of the Souris River basin refuges. It provides the baseline against which to compare the other alternatives. Refuge habitats would continue to be managed on an opportunistic schedule that may maintain—or most likely would result in further decline in—the diversity of vegetation and wildlife species. Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge and J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge would continue to perform only limited research and would monitor only long-term vegetation change. Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge would continue to perform no scientific research or monitoring. Outreach, partnerships, and priority public uses (fishing, hunting, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, environmental education, and interpretation) would continue at present levels. Alternative B is the Service’s proposed action and basis for the CCP. This alternative will prioritize habitats with high probability of restoration for management. Other habitats may only be partially restored or minimally managed. Research and monitoring will increase and scientific knowledge required to restore upland and wetland plant and animal communities will be shared (with the public and other resource managers). Some visitor services are expected to decrease as some staff and funding shifts to habitat restoration. Environmental education will increase. In Alternative C, waterfowl habitat management and waterfowl production would be emphasized over other refuge programs. Research and monitoring would focus on actions that enhance waterfowl habitat, increase waterfowl nest densities, and increase nest and brood survival.

Accounting Act of 1921, as amended; the Budget and Accounting Act of 
1950, as amended; the Debt Collection Act of 1982, as amended; and, the 
Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, as amended.

Objectives To Be Met by the Matching Program

    The matching program will allow USDA access to a system which 
permits prescreening of applicants for loans owed or guaranteed by the 
federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in 
paying a debt owed to or insured by the Government. In addition, HUD 
will be provided access to USDA debtor data for prescreening purposes.

Records To Be Matched

    HUD will use records from its systems of records entitled, Single 
Family Insurance System CLAIMS Subsystem (HUD/SFH-02); Single Family 
Default Monitoring System (HUD/SFH-03); Single Family Mortgage Notes 
(HUD/HS-57); and Debt Collection Asset Management System (HUD/HS-55). 
The debtor files for programs involved are included in these systems of 
records. HUD's debtor files contain information on borrowers and co-
borrowers who are currently in default (at least 90 days delinquent on 
their loans) or who have had their partial claim subordinate mortgage 
called due and payable and it has not been repaid in full or who have 
any outstanding claims paid during the last three years on a Title I

Applicant/Borrower of Grantee File (USDA/FmHA1). HUD is maintaining 
USDA's records only as a ministerial action on behalf of USDA, not as a 
part of HUD's systems of records noted above. USDA's data contain 
information on individuals who have defaulted on their guaranteed 
loans. The USDA will retain ownership and responsibility for their 
system of records that they place with HUD. HUD serves only as a record 
location and routine use recipient for USDA's data.

Notice Procedures

    HUD and the USDA will notify individuals at the time of application 
(ensuring that routine use appears on the application form) for 
guaranteed or direct loans that their records will be matched to 
determine whether they are delinquent or in default on a federal debt. 
HUD and USDA will also publish notices concerning routine use 
disclosures in the Federal Register to inform individuals that a 
computer match may be performed to determine a loan applicant's credit 
status with the federal government.

Categories of Records/Individuals Involved

    The debtor records include these data elements: SSN, claim number, 
program code, and indication of indebtedness. Categories of records 
include: Records of claims and defaults, repayment agreements, credit 
reports, financial statements, and records of foreclosures. Categories 
of individuals include: Former mortgagors and purchasers of HUD-owned 
and home improvement loan debtors who are delinquent or default on 
their loans or who have had their partial claim subordinate mortgage 
called due and payable and it has not been repaid in full.

Period of the Match

    Matching is expected to begin at least 40 days from the date copies 
of the signed (by both HUD and USDA's Data Integrity Boards) computer 
matching agreement are sent to both Houses of Congress or at least 30 
days from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register, 
whichever is later, providing no comments are received which would 
result in a contrary determination. The matching program will be in 
effect and continue for 18 months with an option to renew for 12
