Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 37 / Thursday, February 25, 2010 / Notices Development’s (HUD) Section 108 program is the loan guarantee provision of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. It provides an upfront source of community and economic development financing, allowing an entitlement grantee to borrow up to five times its annual approved CDBG entitlement amount. Grantees address housing, community development, and economic development needs of low- and moderate-income persons and communities. The Section 108 loan guarantee program facilitates the financing of physical and economic revitalization projects—such as neighborhood commercial centers, small business incubators, industrial park rehabilitation, affordable housing activities, or office center construction— that have the potential for renewing neighborhoods or providing affordable housing to low- and moderate-income persons. HUD acts as the guarantor of a Section 108 loan made from privatemarket funds, promising investors that the loan will be repaid. The survey is an essential part of a comprehensive evaluation of the Section 108 program, addressed to questions and concerns raised in a recent PART review of the Section 108 program by OMB. In addition to documenting the types of projects funded through Section 108 loans in recent years (FY 2002–FY 2007), the study will develop data from administrative loan files, selected site visits, and a survey of local administrators of all Section 108 loans for the FY 2002–FY 2007 period. The survey will confirm and extend the initial project descriptions found in the administrative files to permit more extensive analysis of the characteristics and progress of the activities funded by these loans. This study will increase understanding of the role of the Section 108 program in the community and economic development strategies of local governments, seek to identify the consequences of Section 108 projects, and identify ways to improve the measurement of the performance of Section 108 loans. Members of affected public: Local administrators of Section 108 loans made in FY 2002 to FY 2007, involving a total of approximately 320 loans. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection, including the number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The researchers will survey the universe of local administrators of the roughly 320 Section 108 loans approved between FY 2002 and FY 2007. The surveys are VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:34 Feb 24, 2010 Jkt 220001 expected to last 90 minutes. This constitutes a total burden hour estimate of 480 burden hours. Status of the proposed information collection: Pending OMB approval. Authority: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended. Dated: January 28, 2010.

ACTION: Notice. PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the Department of the Interior (Interior), the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, and the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission (Mitigation Commission), as Joint Leads, will prepare an Environmental Assessment of the impacts associated with the proposed realignment of a portion of the Provo Reach of the Spanish Fork-Provo Reservoir Canal Pipeline. This realignment is necessitated in order to avoid active and historic landslides, and reduce risk to the pipeline and associated features from geologic faults. DATES: Date and location for public scoping will be announced locally. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Additional information may be obtained by contacting Mr. Lee Baxter at (801) 379–1174, or by e-mail at lbaxter@uc.usbr.gov. Under the authority of the Central Utah Project Completion Act (Pub. L. 102–575), the Secretary of the Interior oversees water development activities associated with the Bonneville Unit of the Central Utah Project. The Spanish Fork-Provo Reservoir Canal Pipeline (SFPRCP), a feature of the Utah Lake Drainage Basin Water Delivery System of the Bonneville Unit, was described in the 2004 Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Utah Lake Drainage Basin Water Delivery System. Records of Decision were signed by Interior on December 22, 2004, and by the Mitigation Commission on January 27, 2005, providing for the construction of the Utah Lake Drainage Basin Water Delivery System, including the 19.7 mile long SFPRCP. The Mapleton and Springville Reaches of the SFPRCP, totaling approximately 8.8 miles of the pipeline, are currently under construction. Detailed information developed as part of the Value Engineering process for the Provo Reach of the SFPRCP suggests realignment of a portion of the Provo Reach in order to avoid active and historic landslides, and reduce risk from geologic faults. The purpose of this Environmental Assessment is to analyze and present the anticipated environmental effects of the proposed realignment. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: January 22, 2010. Reed R.
