Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Project: Emergency Response Grants Regulations—42 CFR part 51—(OMB No. 0930–0229)—Extension This rule implements section 501(m) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa), which authorizes the Secretary to make noncompetitive grants, contracts or cooperative agreements to public entities to enable such entities to address emergency substance abuse or mental health needs in local communities. The rule establishes criteria for determining that a substance abuse or mental health emergency exists, the minimum content for an application, and reporting requirements for recipients of such funding. SAMHSA will use the information in the applications to make a determination that the requisite need exists; that the mental health and/or substance abuse needs are a direct result of the precipitating event; that no other local, State, Tribal or Federal funding are sources available to address the need; that there is an adequate plan of services; that the applicant has appropriate organizational capability; and, that the budget provides sufficient justification and is consistent with the documentation of need and the plan of services. Eligible applicants may apply to the Secretary for either of two types of substance abuse and mental health emergency response grants: Immediate Number of respondents 42 CFR citation Immediate award application: 51d.4(a) and 51d.6(a)(2) .......................................................................... 51d.4(b) and 51d.6(a)(2) ..........................................................................

Final report content for both types of awards: 51d.10(c) ................................................................................................... Total ................................................................................................... awards and Intermediate awards. The former are designed to be funded up to $50,000, or such greater amount as determined by the Secretary on a caseby-case basis, and are to be used over the initial 90-day period commencing as soon as possible after the precipitating event; the latter awards require more documentation, including a needs assessment, other data and related budgetary detail. The Intermediate awards have no predefined budget limit. Typically, Intermediate awards would be used to meet systemic mental health and/or substance abuse needs during the recovery period following the Immediate award period. Such awards may be used for up to one year, with a possible second year supplement based on submission of additional required information and data. This program is an approved user of the PHS–5161 application form, approved by OMB under control number 0920–0428. The quarterly financial status reports in 51d.10(a)(2) and (b)(2) are as permitted by 45 CFR 92.41(b); the final program report, financial status report and final voucher in 51d.10(a)(3) and in 51d.10(b)(3–4) are in accordance with 45 CFR 92.50(b). Information collection requirements of 45 CFR part 92 are approved by OMB under control number 0990–0169.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    Somali pirates operate along a 2,300 mile coast and in 2.5 million 
square miles of ocean. Given the size and complexity of the affected 
area, a combination of domestic and international efforts has been 
necessary to curb piratical activities. The combination of piracy and 
weak rule of law in the region offers a potential breeding ground for 
other transnational threats. Accordingly, the U.S. uses existing 
statutory authority to develop security standards designed to protect 
U.S.-flagged vessels and continues to work with international partners 
to prevent piracy.
    On February 10, 2006, the Coast Guard announced the release of 
MARSEC Directive 104-6 (71 FR 7054) for those owners and operators of 
vessels subject to 33 CFR parts 101 and 104 to provide direction to 
U.S. flagged vessels operating in high risk areas where acts of piracy 
and armed robbery against ships is prevalent.
    MARSEC Directive 104-6 has been revised five times. MARSEC 
Directive 104-6 (REV 1) provided an updated list of the high risk 
waters based on a biennial review of global piracy and terrorism 
threats.
    MARSEC Directive 104-6 (Rev 2) provided additional counter-piracy 
guidance to U.S. flagged vessels operating in high risk waters where 
acts of piracy and armed robbery against ships are prevalent. It also 
provided a listing of additional high risk waters, updated from the 
previous version of the Directive.
    MARSEC Directive 104-6 (Rev 3) encouraged the use of industry best 
management practices that have proven to be successful in thwarting 
pirate attacks and incorporates lessons-learned since the issuance of 
Revision 2.
    MARSEC Directive 104-6 (Rev 4) provided clarification for U.S. 
flagged vessels berthed or anchored in high risk waters. Vessels at 
anchor should operate in a manner consistent with vessels that transit 
through high risk waters. Whether at anchor or underway, the vessels 
are subjected to the same type of threats from attacking pirates. 
Vessels berthed in high risk waters should implement enhanced security 
measures as described in the MARSEC Directive.
    MARSEC Directive 104-6 (Rev 5), the Directive that is the subject 
of this notice of availability, addresses the expanding operating area 
of Somali pirates and provides U.S. flagged vessels additional guidance 
for operations in the Indian Ocean. With the issuance of (Rev 5), 
MARSEC Directive 104-6 (Rev 4) is no longer valid.
    To support the issuance of MARSEC Directive 104-6 (series), we 
developed piracy-related Port Security Advisories (PSAs) to provide 
further guidance and direction to U.S. flagged vessels operating in 
high risk waters to help facilitate compliance with this directive. The 
PSAs can be found at http://homeport.uscg.mil/piracy, including a non-
SSI version of this MARSEC Directive in PSA (2-09) (Rev 3).

Procedural

    COTPs and District Commanders can access all MARSEC directives on 
Homeport by logging in and going to Missions > Maritime Security > 
Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) > Policy. Owners and 
operators of U.S. flagged vessels that travel on international voyages 
must contact their local COTP, cognizant District Commander or the 
Office of Vessel Activities to acquire a copy of MARSEC Directive 104-6 
(Rev 5). COTPs or cognizant District Commanders may provide this MARSEC 
Directive to appropriate vessel owners and operators via mail or fax in 
accordance with SSI handling procedures.
    Pursuant to 33 CFR 101.405, we consulted with the Department of 
State, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, 
Department of Transportation/Maritime Administration, Office of Naval 
Intelligence, Department of Commerce, Department of Justice, Military

issuing these Directives.
    All MARSEC Directives issued pursuant to 33 CFR 101.405 are marked 
as SSI in accordance with 49 CFR Part 1520. COTPs and District 
Commanders will require individuals requesting a MARSEC Directive to 
prove that they meet the standards for a ``covered person'' under 49 
CFR 1520.7, have a ``need to know'' the information, as defined in 49 
CFR 1520.11, and that they will safeguard the SSI in MARSEC Directive 
104-6 (Rev 5) as required in 49 CFR 1520.9.
