Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 178 / Wednesday, September 15, 2010 / Notices Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD uses the Housing Discrimination Information Form HUD–903.1 (Form) to collect pertinent information from persons wishing to file housing discrimination complaints with HUD under the Fair Housing Act (Act). The Act makes it unlawful to discriminate in the sale, rental, occupancy, advertising, or insuring of residential dwellings; or to discriminate in residential real estaterelated transactions; or in the provision of brokerage services, based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap [disability], familial status, or national origin. Any person who claims to have been injured by a discriminatory housing practice, or any person who believes that he or she will be injured by a discriminatory housing practice that is about to occur, may file a complaint with HUD not later than one year after the alleged discriminatory housing practice occurs or terminates. The Form promotes consistency in the collection of information necessary to contact persons who file housing discrimination complaints with HUD. It also aids in the collection of information necessary for initial assessments of HUD’s authority to investigate alleged discriminatory housing practices under the Act. This information may subsequently be provided to persons against whom complaints are filed [‘‘respondents’’], as required under section 810(a)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act. Agency form numbers, if applicable: Form HUD–903.1 (English), Form HUD– 903.1A (Spanish), Form HUD–903–1B (Chinese), Form HUD–903.1F (Vietnamese), Form HUD–903.1K (Korean), Form HUD–903.1AR (Arabic), Form HUD–903.1CAM (Cambodian), Form HUD–903.1R (Russian), and Form HUD–903–1 (Somali). Members of affected public: Individuals or households; businesses or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection, including the number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of responses: During FY 2009, HUD staff received approximately 16,740 information submissions from persons wishing to file housing discrimination complaints with HUD. Telephone contacts accounted for 4,200 of this total. The remaining 12,540 complaint submissions were transmitted to HUD by mail, in-person, and via the Internet. HUD estimates that an aggrieved person requires approximately 45 minutes in which to VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:57 Sep 14, 2010 Jkt 220001 complete this Form. The Form is completed once by each aggrieved person. Therefore, the total number of annual burden hours for this Form is 9,405 hours. 12,540 × 1 (frequency) × .45 minutes (.75 hours) = 9,405 hours. Annualized cost burden to complainants: HUD does not provide postage-paid mailers for this information collection. Accordingly, persons who choose to submit this Form to HUD by mail must pay the prevailing cost of First Class Postage. As of the date of this Notice, the annualized cost burden per person, based on a one-time submission of this Form to HUD via First Class Postage, is Forty-Four Cents ($0.44) per person. During FY 2009, FHEO staff received approximately 6,225 submissions of potential complaint information by mail. Based on this number, HUD estimates that the total annualized cost burden for aggrieved persons who submit this Form to HUD by mail is $2,739.00. Aggrieved persons also may submit this Form to HUD in person, by facsimile, or electronically via the Internet. Status of the proposed information collection: Renewal of a currently approved collection of pertinent information from persons wishing to file Fair Housing Act complaints with HUD.

On the certification form, the individual must provide the name of the perpetrator. PHAs are instructed that the delivery of the certification form to the tenant in response to incident via mail may place the victim at risk, e.g., the abuser may monitor the mail; consequently, PHAs, owners and managers may require that the tenant come into the office to pick up the certification form. PHAs and owners are also encouraged to work with tenants to make delivery arrangements that do not place the tenant at risk. If the PHA, owner, or management agent provides the individual with a written request for documentation of the abuse, and the individual does not provide the certification form, or alternate documentation as described on the certification form, within 14 business days from the date of receipt of the PHA’s, owner’s, or management agent’s written request (or after any extension of that date provided by the PHA, owner or management agent), none of the protections afforded to the victim of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking by sections 606 or 607 will apply.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Ellis, Project Leader, (808) 637– 6330. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction With this notice, we continue the CCP process for the Pearl Harbor National Wildlife Refuge. We started this process by publishing a notice of intent in the Federal Register on December 1, 2008 (73 FR 72826). Pearl Harbor Refuge is located on the southern coast of the island of O‘ahu and is comprised of three units: Honouliuli, Waiawa, and Kalaeloa. The Honouliuli Unit and Waiawa Unit are wetland units located on the shores of Pearl Harbor. The 37-acre Honouliuli Unit and the 25-acre Waiawa Unit were established in 1972 to protect and enhance habitat for endangered Hawaiian waterbirds. Habitats found on these units include open water, freshwater marsh, mudflat, grassland, and shrubland. The units provide important breeding, feeding, and resting areas for endangered waterbirds, a variety of migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, and other wetland birds. Common migrants include Northern pintail and Pacific golden plover. Neither unit is open to the general public; however, a grade school wetland education program is administered under a special use permit at the Honouliuli Unit. The 38-acre Kalaeloa Unit is a coastal upland unit on O‘ahu’s southwestern point, and was once part of the Naval Air Station Barbers Point (NAS). When the NAS closed in 2001, the unit was established to protect and enhance habitat for the endangered ‘Ewa hinahina plant. The unit contains the largest remnant stand of ‘Ewa hinahina and a reintroduced population of ‘akoko, another endangered plant. We supplement these plant populations with nursery plantings and exotic plant control. The unit is located within the arid ‘Ewa Plains, and encompasses exposed coral shelf, rocky shoreline, and sparse vegetation. The unit includes a unique microhabitat called anchialine pools. These salt water pools are in the raised limestone coral reef, and are connected to the ocean via tiny subterranean cracks and crevices within the coralline substrate. The anchialine pools support unique insects, plants, and animals, including two imperiled E:\FR\FM\15SEN1.SGM 15SEN1
