Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the Information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG–DR) Grants: The DRGR system has approximately 72 open CDBG disaster recovery grants. HUD requires each grantee to report their performance into the system quarterly. In addition, grantees submit vouchers for drawdown of funds as needed. Some grantees have more than one open grant under different appropriation rules and are required to report on grants separately. For average sized grantees (< $100m in grant funds), the Department estimates 9 hours for quarterly reporting in DRGR. Larger grantees with funds in excess of $100M+ require a substantially greater number of reporting activities, thus averaging approximately 57 hours per quarter. The estimated annual total number of hours for Disaster Grant reporting is 2,241. Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) Grants: The system has 577 NSP1 and NSP3 grants in the system. The 270 NSP3 grantees must prepare and submit substantial amendments to their action plans, sign grant agreements, and set up activities in DRGR for a total of 15,323 hours. The Department estimates that it takes 4 hours per grant for quarterly reporting and 38 hours for voucher submissions. The estimated annual total number of hours for all 577 NSP1 and 3 grantees to report in DRGR is 9,232 hours. Voucher submissions are estimated at 3,899 burden hours per year. Total burden hours including application, grant setup and reporting are estimated at 28,494.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alice Hanley, 320–273–2191. Introduction With this notice, we continue the CCP process for Big Stone NWR, which we began by publishing a notice of intent in the Federal Register (73 FR 76677) on December 17, 2008. For more about the initial process and the history of this refuge, see that notice. Background The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) (Administration Act), requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose in developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year strategy for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS), consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and Service policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Administration Act. Each unit of the NWRS, including Big Stone NWR, was established for specific purposes. We use these purposes as the foundation for developing and prioritizing the management goals and objectives for each refuge within the NWRS mission, and to determine how the public can use each refuge. The planning process is a way for us and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives that will ensure the best possible approach to wildlife, plant, and habitat conservation, while providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with each refuge’s establishing purposes and the mission of the NWRS. Refuge Overview Big Stone NWR was established in 1975 when lands, purchased by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as part of the Big Stone Lake–Whetstone River Project authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1965, were transferred to the Service. Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Today the Refuge includes 11,586 acres and is managed for fish, wildlife, and their habitats. CCP Alternatives and Our Preferred Alternative SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 27245 Priority Issues During the public scoping process, we, other stakeholders and partners, and the public identified several priority issues, which include habitat management, sedimentation, invasive species, and demand for additional recreation opportunities and visitor services. To address these issues, we developed and evaluated the following six alternatives during the planning process. Alternative 1: Current Management/No Action Alternative 1 is the No Action alternative, which means there would be no change from current management practices. Active management of Refuge habitats and visitor services would continue at present levels. Water movement and associated sediment delivery would continue to follow its current route through the Refuge, and the quality of riverine habitat would remain within its present range of conditions. There would be no change to the management capabilities of West Pool. Remnant prairie, restored grasslands, and prairie associated with granite outcrops would continue to be managed at present levels. The amount of partially restored grasslands would increase by 500 acres. The total area of nonnative grassland would decrease to 300 acres. Wildlife observation and photography, environmental education and interpretation, hunting, fishing, trapping, and gathering shed antlers and wild edible plants are recreational opportunities that would occur under this alternative if they meet the Service definition of compatibility. Refuge staff would continue to work with visitors and local communities and provide volunteer opportunities to build support for the Refuge. Alternative 2 Under this alternative the natural alignment, channel capacity, and meander relationships would be restored to the upper 5 miles of the Minnesota River within the Refuge, and there would be an effort to improve water quality within the Minnesota River and its tributaries. Redistributing the timing and delivery of waters and sediment would improve the ability to increase, distribute, and diversify submerged vegetation within West Pool.

    This Notice also lists the following information:
    Title of Proposal: Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting System.
    OMB Control Number: 2506-0165.
    Description of the need for the Information and proposed use: The 
Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting (DRGR) System is a grants management 
system used by the Office of Community Planning and Development to 
monitor special appropriation grants under the Community Development 
Block Grant program. This collection pertains to Community Development 
Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and Neighborhood Stabilization 
Program (NSP) grant appropriations.
    The CDBG program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and 
Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. Following major 
disasters, Congress appropriates supplemental CDBG funds for disaster 
recovery. According to Section 104(e)(1) of the Housing and Community 
Development Act of 1974, HUD is responsible for reviewing grantees' 
compliance with applicable requirements and their continuing capacity 
to carry out their programs. Grant funds are made available to states 
and units of general local government, Indian tribes, and insular 
areas, unless provided otherwise by supplemental appropriations 
statute, based on their unmet disaster recovery needs.
    The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was established for 
the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered as a result 
of foreclosures and property abandonment. On July 21, 2010, President 
Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection 
Act (Dodd-Frank Act) into law (Pub. L. 111-203). This law provides $1 
billion of formula grant funding for the redevelopment of foreclosed 
and abandoned homes to be allocated under the terms of Title XII, 
Division A, Section 2 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 
(Recovery Act) and by the formula factors provided in Title III of 
Division B of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 
110-289) (HERA). In 2008, HERA provided for an initial round of formula 
funding to regular State and entitlement Community Development Block 
Grant (CDBG) grantees through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 
(NSP1).\1\ The Recovery Act provided for a neighborhood stabilization 
grant competition open to state and local governments, as well as non-
profit groups and consortia that may include for-profit entities 
(NSP2).\2\ The Dodd-Frank Act is the third round of Neighborhood 
Stabilization Funding (NSP3).

    Although NSP funds are otherwise to be considered CDBG funds, HERA, 
the Recovery Act and the Dodd-Frank Act make substantive revisions to 
the eligibility, use, and method of distribution of NSP3 funds. For 
NSP1 and NSP3, grantees are required to submit substantial amendments 
to their consolidated plans to secure funding they are entitled to 
under the formula grants.
    NSP3 Technical Assistance grants were appropriated under Dodd-Frank 
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) (Pub. 
L. 111-203). Grantees were selected through a competitive process set 
forth in the NSP3-TA Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA),\3\ with the 
purpose of assessing the need for technical assistance and targeting 
technical assistance in order to achieve the highest level of 
performance and results for the programs administered by HUD's Office 
of Community Planning and Development. Eligible applicants include 
states, units of local government, public housing authorities, non-
profit organizations, for-profit entities, and joint applicants.
