This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting System—Revision to Add Hurricane Sandy and other Disaster Grants. 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.

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 recent Hurricane Sandy supplemental appropriation (Pub. L. 113–2) provides funding for Hurricane Sandy disaster recovery efforts and other eligible events in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The appropriation directs the Department to address these efforts in areas of greatest unmet need. The Department estimates that this will add 40 new grants to the portfolio currently overseen by the Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division in the Office of Block Grant Assistance. This revision updates the previously approved DRGR PRA information collection to account for the increase in burden hours associated with these new CDBG–DR grants. Information collection requirements for NSP and NSP–TA grants will remain unchanged from the previously approved collection. Agency form numbers, if applicable: SF–424 Application for Federal Assistance. Members of affected public: DRGR is used to monitor CDBG–DR, NSP, and NSP–TA grants, as well as several programs that do not fall under the Office of Block Grant Assistance. Separate information collections have been submitted and approved for these programs. CDBG–DR and NSP 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. NSP–TA grant funds are awarded on a competitive basis and are open to state and local governments, as well as non-profit groups and consortia that may include for-profit entities. 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. An additional 40 grants are anticipated as a result of the Hurricane Sandy appropriation. HUD requires each grantee to report their performance into the system quarterly. In addition, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:22 Feb 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 11,485 for the first year of this collection (which includes one-time only submissions) and 10,977 for the second year (recurring reporting only). Status of the proposed information collection: This notice precedes a continuation of the existing burden hour request.

Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-way, or a right-ofuse and easement. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 5(a) of the OCS Lands Act requires the Secretary to prescribe rules and regulations ‘‘to provide for the prevention of waste, and conservation of the natural resources of the Outer Continental Shelf, and the protection of correlative rights therein’’ and to include provisions ‘‘for the prompt and efficient exploration and development of a lease area.’’ Section 1334(g)(2) states ‘‘* * * the lessee shall produce such oil or gas, or E:\FR\FM\25FEN1.SGM 25FEN1
