Renewal of Agency Information Collection for the Bureau of Indian Education Adult Education Program; Request for Comments, 78018-78019 [2011-32155]

Download as PDF 78018 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 241 / Thursday, December 15, 2011 / Notices through a variety of mechanisms, including public meetings, electronic communication, and creation of a Trustee-wide public Web site and database to share information and receive public project submissions. The Trustees are considering a broad array of potential early restoration projects. Their key objective in pursuing early restoration is to secure tangible recovery of natural resources and natural resource services for the public’s benefit while the longer-term process of fully assessing injury and damages is still underway. As the first step in this accelerated process, the Trustees are first proposing eight projects as set forth in this Phase I Draft Early Restoration Plan/Environmental Assessment (DERP/ EA) in accordance with OPA and NEPA. The projects proposed in this plan are not intended to, and do not fully, address all injuries caused by the spill or provide the extent of restoration needed to satisfy claims against BP. In keeping with the Framework Agreement, the DERP/EA includes an estimate of the gains anticipated to result from each project, referred to as ‘‘Natural Resource Damage Offsets’’ (NRD Offsets). These NRD Offsets were identified consistent with the terms of the Framework Agreement. If these projects are approved, at the end of the NRDA process, the Trustees would credit these NRD Offsets generated by these early restoration projects towards the total restoration credits required based on the completed injury assessment. Further comprehensive restoration will still be required to fully compensate the public for natural resource losses from the oil spill. Overview of the Phase 1 DERP/EA mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Draft Early Restoration Plan Alternatives, Including Proposed Alternative The DERP/EA describes two early restoration alternatives: No Action— Natural Recovery (required for consideration by OPA) and Proposed Action—Proposed Early Restoration Projects. Under the No Action alternative, the trustees would not implement early restoration projects as described in this DERP/EA. Rather, the trustees would rely, for the time being, solely on natural recovery processes to restore natural resources to their prespill conditions and would undertake no early actions to accelerate recovery or to help address interim resource losses. Under the Proposed Action, the Trustees are considering eight projects that meet the selection criteria as described in the DERP/EA. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:28 Dec 14, 2011 Jkt 226001 Proposed Action—Proposed Early Restoration Projects The proposed projects are intended to provide services that will benefit injured marshes, coastal dune habitats, nearshore sediments, oysters, and human uses (on water recreation). Each of these projects provides benefits to natural resources and their services injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The proposed projects are: (1) Lake Hermitage Marsh Creation, Louisiana; (2) Louisiana Oyster Cultch Project; (3) Mississippi Oyster Cultch Restoration; (4) Mississippi Artificial Reef Habitat; (5) Marsh Island (Portersville Bay, Alabama) Marsh Creation; (6) Alabama Dune Restoration Cooperative Project; (7) Florida Boat Ramp Enhancement Cooperative Project; (8) Florida Dune Restoration. Next Step After the public comment period ends, we will analyze and address the comments. After close of the public comment period, the Trustees will consider all input received before a Phase I Early Restoration Plan is finalized. As described above, a series of public meetings are scheduled to facilitate the public review and comment process. Upon completion of the Phase I Early Restoration Plan, negotiations with BP will be completed and approved projects will proceed to implementation, pending compliance with all applicable state and federal laws. Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment including your personal identifying information, may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Abstract These collections help support the educational efforts for American Indian and Alaska Native students from elementary through post-secondary levels. The collections help fulfill the trust responsibility of the Secretary of the Department of the Interior and the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs, as delegated under 25 U.S.C. 2 and 9, and 209 DM 8. Application for Admission to Haskell & SIPI The BIE is requesting renewal of OMB approval for the admission forms for Haskell and SIPI. These admission forms are used in determining program eligibility of American Indian and Alaska Native students for educational services. These forms are utilized pursuant to the Blood Quantum Act, Public Law 99–228; the Snyder Act, Chapter 115, Public Law 67–85; and, the Indian Appropriations of the 48th Congress, Chapter 180, page 91, For Support of Schools, July 4, 1884.

The information collection provides transportation mileage for Bureaufunded schools, which determines the allocation of transportation funds. Data Elements for Student Enrollment in Bureau-funded Schools The BIE is requesting renewal of OMB approval for the Student Enrollment Application in Bureau-funded Schools. School registrars collect information on this form to determine the student’s eligibility for enrollment in a Bureaufunded school, and if eligible, is shared with appropriate school officials to identify the student’s base and supplemental educational and/or residential program needs. The BIE compiles the information into a national database to facilitate budget requests and the allocation of congressionally appropriated funds. E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1
