E8–3903 Filed 2–28–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4162–20–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Federal Emergency Management Agency Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS. ACTION: Notice; 60-day notice and request for comments; this is an extension of a currently approved collection, OMB No. 1660–0104. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning Severe Repetitive Loss Program (SRL) Appeals process as part of the administration of the SRL program. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To implement the Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4102a, as amended, FEMA has published an interim rule at 44 CFR 79.7(d) in the Federal Register on October 31, 2007 that outlines an appeals process by which any owner of a severe repetitive loss property may appeal the decision of FEMA to increase the chargeable insurance premium rate on property. The legislation that created the SRL program provides that any owner of a severe repetitive loss property who refuses an offer of mitigation may appeal the decision of FEMA to increase the chargeable insurance premium rate on that property. The process requires the owner to submit a written appeal, including any supporting documentation for their appeal to FEMA within 90 days of the notice of the insurance rate increase. This extension of a currently approved collection of information is necessary to ensure that the property owner is given the opportunity to provide additional documentation that supports one of the six allowable bases for appeal, outlined in the authorizing legislation, and implemented at 44 CFR 79.7(d). Collection of Information Title: Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) Appeals Process. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Number: 1660–0104. Form Numbers: None. Abstract: The SRL program provides property owners with the ability to appeal an increase in their flood insurance premium rate if they refuse an offer of mitigation under this program. The property owner must submit information to FEMA to support their appeal. Affected Public: Federal Government, and individuals or households. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 100.

E8–3905 Filed 2–28–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 9110–49–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Federal Emergency Management Agency Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS. ACTION: Notice; 60-day notice and request for comments; this is an extension of a currently approved collection, OMB No. 1660–0103. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning the Property Acquisition and Relocation for Open Space process as part of the administration of FEMA’s mitigation grant programs. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Rules implementing Property Acquisition and Relocation for Open Space as published at 44 CFR part 80 on October 31, 2007 in the Federal Register as an interim rule govern property acquisitions for the creation of open space under all of FEMA mitigation grant programs authorized under both the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5121–5206, and the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq. Acquisition and relocation of property for open space use is one of the most common mitigation activities, and is an eligible activity type authorized for Federal grant funds under all of FEMA mitigation grant programs. FEMA mitigation grant programs require all properties acquired with FEMA funds to be deed restricted and maintained as open space in perpetuity. This ensures that no future risks from hazards occur to life or structures on that property, and no future disaster assistance or insurance payments are made as a result of damages to that property. This extension of a currently approved collection of information is necessary to establish uniform requirements for State and local implementation of acquisition activities, and to enforce open space maintenance and monitoring requirements for properties acquired with FEMA mitigation grant funds. The interim rule published on October 31, 2007 included a conforming amendment to the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to refer to the new part 80 for acquisition and relocation activities, and removed 44 CFR 206.434(f), pertaining to the inapplicability of the Uniform Relocation Act. Collection of Information Title: Property Acquisition and Relocation for Open Space. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Number: 1660–0103. Form Numbers: None. Abstract: FEMA and State and local recipients of FEMA mitigation grant programs will use the information collected to meet the Property Acquisition requirements to implement acquisition activities under the terms of grant agreements for acquisition and relocation activities.

following FEMA grant programs.
    National Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Response System--To develop 
an immediately deployable, national response capability to locate and 
extricate, and medically stabilize victims of structural collapse 
during a disaster, while simultaneously enhancing the US&R response 
capabilities of State and local governments.
    Community Assistance Program-State Support Services Element (CAP-
SSSE)--To ensure that communities participating in the National Flood 
Insurance Program (NFIP) are achieving flood loss reduction measures 
consistent with program direction. The CAP-SSSE is intended to 
identify, prevent and resolve floodplain management issues in 
participating communities before they develop into problems requiring 
enforcement action.
    Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP)--To 
enhance emergency preparedness capabilities of the States and local 
communities at each of the eight chemical agent stockpile storage 
facilities. The purpose of the program is to assist States and local 
communities in efforts to improve their capacity to plan for and 
respond to accidents associated with the storage and ultimate disposal 
of chemical warfare materials.

zoning codes and ordinances to enhance seismic safety, increase 
earthquake awareness and education, and encourage the development of 
multi-State groups for such purposes.
    Disaster Donations Management Program (AIDMATRRIX)--To distribute 
technology solutions to State and local government and voluntary 
agencies throughout the country prior, to a major event, through the 
Aidmatrix Foundation/FEMA partnership. This will allow end-users to

mitigation program, and that reduce injuries, loss of life, and damage 
and destruction of property. Competitive grants are part of this 
program including grants to universities.
    Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG)--To provide direct 
assistance, on a competitive basis, to fire departments of a State or
