You may contact the Office of Records Management for copies of the proposed collection of information at facsimile number (202) 646–3347 or email address: FEMA-InformationCollections@dhs.gov. The National Flood Insurance Reform Act (NFIRA) of 1994 (Pub. L. 103–325, SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: section 541) requires that a community rating system be established. This ratings system is a voluntary program for communities and it would provide a method by which flood mitigation activities engaged in by these communities could be measured. The effect of this mitigation activity would reduce the exposure of the communities to damages resulting from flooding and in turn reducing the loss incurred as a result of this flooding. To encourage participation, discounts on flood insurance are offered within communities that successfully complete qualified mitigation actions, and the community ratings system provides the ability to measure these actions and to recertify the communities in successive years. Collection of Information Title: Community Rating System (CRS) Program—Application Worksheets and Commentary. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0022. Form Titles and Numbers: FEMA Form 086–0–23, Community Rating System Application Form and Manual; 086–0–23A, Community Rating System Annual Recertification. Abstract: The CRS Application Worksheet and Commentary are used by communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) to document the activities that communities have undertaken to mitigate against future flood losses. The CRS application and activity worksheets provide a step-by-step process for communities to follow in their effort to achieve the maximum amount of discount on flood insurance premiums. CRS is a voluntary program where flood insurance costs are reduced in communities that implement practices, such as building codes and public education activities, that are considered to reduce risks of flooding and promote purchase of flood insurance.

VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:27 Apr 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 OMB Control Number: 2535–0106. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD assesses all of the management operations data required under section 6(j) of the Act in a format comprising six sections or sub-indicators. The PHAS regulation requires that all management operations data be submitted electronically to HUD, in a HUD prescribed format. HUD uses the management data it collects from program participants to evaluate all major areas of a participant’s management operations. The management data are evaluated using predetermined weights and factors to compute an indicator score for the management operations of each reporting entity. HUD uses this score with three other PHAS indicator scores (i.e., physical condition, financial condition and resident services) to produce an overall PHAS score for each PHA. The overall PHAS score determines if a PHA’s performance is high, standard, or troubled. Agency form number, if applicable: Form HUD–50072. Members of affected public: PHAs, State or local government. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents: The estimated number of respondents is an annual average of 3,174 PHAs that submit management operations certification. The average number for each PHA response varies by size of the PHA, with a total reporting burden of 3,644 hours, or an average of 1.15 hours per respondent.
