Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0044; Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP). DHS TRIP is a single point of contact for individuals who have inquiries or seek resolution regarding difficulties they have experienced during their travel screening. These difficulties could include: (1) Denied or delayed boarding; (2) denied or delayed entry into or departure from the United States at a port of entry; or (3) identified for additional (secondary) screening at our Nation’s transportation facilities, including airports, seaports, train stations and land borders. The TSA manages the DHS TRIP office on behalf of DHS. To request redress, individuals are asked to provide identifying information as well as details of their travel experience. The DHS TRIP office serves as a centralized intake office for traveler requests for redress and uses the online Traveler Inquiry Form (TIF) to collect requests for redress. DHS TRIP then passes the information to the relevant DHS component to process the request, as appropriate (e.g., DHS TRIP passes the form to the appropriate DHS office to initiate the Watch List Clearance Procedure). Participating DHS components include the TSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Office of Biometric Information Management, Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and the Privacy Office, along with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Justice (Terrorist Screening Center).

DHS estimates completing the form, and gathering and submitting the information will take approximately one hour. The annual respondent population was derived from data contained within the DHS case management database and reflects the actual number of respondents for the most recent calendar year.

Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting System. OMB Approval Number: 2506–0165. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Form Number: SF–424—Application for Federal Assistance. 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. Estimated Number of Respondents: Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG–DR) Grants: The system has approximately 72 open CDBG disaster recovery grants in DRGR. HUD estimates an additional 40 grants as a result of the recent supplemental appropriation for Hurricane Sandy relief. One-time only submissions: The onetime only pre- and post-award submissions for the estimated 40 new DRSI grants resulting from Hurricane Sandy include standard forms, DRGR Action Plan, and required financial control documentation. Total hours are estimated at 505 at a cost of $12,164. Recurring submissions: Recurring submissions include quarterly progress reports and voucher submissions. For average-sized grants, the Department estimates 13 minutes needed per voucher. CDBG–DR grantees process approximately 19 vouchers per year. This requires a record keeping and reporting burden of approximately 4 hours per grantee, per year. Larger CDBG–DR grantees take approximately 44 minutes for each voucher and submit PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54267 an average of 146 vouchers per year, resulting in approximately 106 burden hours per year, per grantee. Therefore, all CDBG–DR grantees collectively spend an estimated 2,721 hours submitting vouchers in the DRGR system for a total estimated annual voucher submission cost of $65,575. Average-sized grantees spend an estimated 9 hours on each QPR, for a total of 3,240 hours. Large grantees spend an estimated 57 hours per QPR for a total of 5,016 hours. Therefore, all grantees collectively spend an estimated 8,256 hours per year submitting QPR data in DRGR. Total annual QPR submissions cost an estimated $198,970. Grants: For the 577 active NSP grants in the DRGR system, the Department estimates 11 minutes per voucher Neighborhood Stabilization Program submission. NSP grantees process approximately 34 vouchers per year. This requires a record keeping and reporting burden of approximately 3,899 hours for an annual voucher submission cost of $93,970. NSP grantees spend an estimated 4 hours per QPR submission, for a total of 9,232 hours for a total annual QPR submission costs $222,491. Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3— Technical Assistance Grants: The DRGR system currently has 10 open NSP3–TA grants. Historical data on voucher and QPR submissions for technical assistance grants were extremely limited at the time this collection was being assembled. Therefore, the times used to calculate NSP grant cost burden will be applied to NSP3–TA grant cost burden. For 10 average-sized grants, the Department estimates 11 minutes per voucher. Grantees process approximately 38 vouchers per year. Total burden hours for all grantees over the course of the year is estimated at 380, for a total annual submission cost of $1,648. 10 average-sized grantees spend approximately 4 hours submitting each QPR, for a total of 160 hours over the course of a year. Total annual QPR submission costs approximately $3,856. B. Solicitation of Public Comment This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1

Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP). DHS TRIP is a single point 
of contact for individuals who have inquiries or seek resolution 
regarding difficulties they have experienced during their travel 
screening. These difficulties could include: (1) Denied or delayed 
boarding; (2) denied or delayed entry into or departure from the United 
States at a port of entry; or (3) identified for additional (secondary)

the DHS TRIP office on behalf of DHS. To request redress, individuals 
are asked to provide identifying information as well as details of 
their travel experience.
    The DHS TRIP office serves as a centralized intake office for 
traveler requests for redress and uses the online Traveler Inquiry Form 
(TIF) to collect requests for redress. DHS TRIP then passes the 
information to the relevant DHS component to process the request, as 
appropriate (e.g., DHS TRIP passes the form to the appropriate DHS 
office to initiate the Watch List Clearance Procedure). Participating 
DHS components include the TSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection,

Information Management, Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and 
the Privacy Office, along with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of 
Consular Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Justice (Terrorist 
Screening Center). This collection serves to distinguish misidentified 
individuals from an individual actually on any watch list that DHS 
uses, and, where appropriate, this program helps streamline and 
expedite future check-in or border crossing experiences.
    DHS estimates completing the form, and gathering and submitting the
