    Abstract: The Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965 (LWCF 
Act) (16 U.S.C. 460/-4 et seq.) was enacted to help preserve, develop, 
and ensure public access to outdoor recreation facilities. The LWCF Act 
provides funds for and authorizes Federal assistance to the States for 
planning, acquisition, and development of needed land and water areas 
and facilities. As used for this information collection, the term 
``States'' includes the 50 States; the Commonwealths of Puerto Rico and 
the Northern Mariana Islands; the District of Columbia; and the 
territories of Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.
    In accordance with the LWCF Act, we administer the LWCF State 
Assistance Program, which provides matching grants to States, and 
through the States to local units of government. The LWCF State 
Assistance Program gives maximum flexibility and responsibility to the 
States. States establish their own priorities and criteria and award 
their grant money through a competitive selection process based on a 
Statewide recreation plan.
    The information collection requirements associated with the LWCF 
State Assistance Program are currently approved under five OMB control 
numbers, all of which expire on October 31. 2013. During our review for 
this renewal, we identified some other existing collection requirements 
that have not been approved by OMB. In this revision of 1024-0031, we 
are including all of the information collection requirements for the 
LWCF State Assistance Program. If OMB approves this revision, we will 
discontinue OMB Control Numbers 1024-0032, 1024-0033, 1024-0034, and 
1024-0047. The information collection requirements for the LWCF State 
Assistance Program are discussed in detail in our Federal Register 
notice, February 22, 2013 (78 FR 12349) and the Land and Water 
Conservation Fund State Assistance Program Federal Financial Assistance 
Manual, available online at http://www.nps.gov/ncrc/programs/lwcf/manual/lwcf.pdf.
    Comments: On February 22, 2013, we published in the Federal 
Register (78 FR 12349) a notice of our intent to request that OMB 
approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited 
comments for 60 days, ending on April 23, 2013. We did not receive any 
comments.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. 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 made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
