However, there is a slight increase in the respondent labor costs due to the use of updated labor rates. Richard T. Westlund, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of rubber tire manufacturing plants which include each: under-tread cementing operation, sidewall cementing operation, tread end cementing operation, bead cementing operating, green tire spraying operation, Michelin-A operation, Michelin-B operation, and Michelin-C automatic operation. The standards require the submission of notification when conducting performance tests and periodic reporting including semiannual reports of excess emissions and annual reports of Method 24 formulation data. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Rubber tire manufacturing facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart BBB). Estimated number of respondents: 41 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, annually, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 17,684 hours (per year). ‘‘Burden’’ is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $1,746,207 (per year), includes $16,400 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 burden from the most-recently approved ICR. Based on consultation comments received in development of this ICR, the frequency of occurrence for burden items ‘‘monitoring of VOC emissions and operations’’ and ‘‘recording startup, shutdown, and malfunction’’ were revised to account for 350 days per year operation, which is typical for current plant operation in the industry sector. This results in an increase in respondent burden hours and costs. There is also a decrease of one burden hour for the Agency as a result of rounding. This ICR calculates all burden hours and costs to two decimal places and presents a more precise estimate. Richard T. Westlund, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will begin to accept requests, from December 9, 2013 through January 31, 2014, for grants to supplement State and Tribal Response Programs. This notice provides guidance on eligibility for funding, use of funding, grant mechanisms and process for awarding funding, the allocation system for distribution of funding, and terms and reporting under these grants. EPA has consulted with state and tribal officials in developing this guidance. The primary goal of this funding is to ensure that state and tribal response programs include, or are taking reasonable steps to include, certain elements and a public record. Another goal is to provide funding for other activities that increase the number of response actions conducted or overseen by a state or tribal response program. This funding is not intended to supplant current state or tribal funding for their response programs. Instead, it is to supplement their funding to increase their response capacity. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Dec 05, 2013 Jkt 232001 For fiscal year 2014, EPA will consider funding requests up to a maximum of $1.0 million per state or tribe. Subject to the availability of funds, EPA regional personnel will be available to provide technical assistance to states and tribes as they apply for and carry out these grants. DATES: This action is effective as of December 9, 2013. EPA expects to make non-competitive grant awards to states and tribes which apply during fiscal year 2014. ADDRESSES: Mailing addresses for EPA Regional Offices and EPA Headquarters can be located at www.epa.gov/ brownfields and at the end of this Notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization, (202) 566–2745 or the applicable EPA Regional Office listed at the end this Notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information Section 128(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), as amended, authorizes a noncompetitive $50 million grant program to establish and enhance state 1 and tribal 2 response programs. CERCLA 128(a) response program grants are funded with categorical 3 State and Tribal Assistance Grant (STAG) appropriations. Section 128(a) cooperative agreements are awarded and administered by the EPA regional offices. Generally, these response programs address the assessment, cleanup, and redevelopment of brownfields sites and other sites with actual or perceived contamination. This document provides guidance that will enable states and tribes to apply for and use fiscal year 2014 section 128(a) funds.4 The Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance entry for the section 128(a) State and Tribal Response Program cooperative agreements is 66.817. This grant program is eligible to be included 1 The term ‘‘state’’ is defined in this document as defined in CERCLA section 101(27). 2 The term ‘‘Indian tribe’’ is defined in this document as it is defined in CERCLA section 101(36). Intertribal consortia, as defined in the Federal Register Notice at 67 FR 67181, Nov. 4, 2002, are also eligible for funding under CERCLA section 128(a). 3 Categorical grants are issued by the U.S. Congress to fund state and local governments for narrowly defined purposes. 4 The Agency may waive any provision of this guidance that is not required by statute, regulation, Executive Order or overriding Agency policies.

Requests for funding will be accepted from December 9, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Requests EPA receives after January 31, 2014 will not be considered for FY2014 funding. Information that must be submitted with the funding request is listed in Section VIII of this guidance. States or tribes that do not submit the request in the appropriate manner may forfeit their ability to receive funds. First time requestors are strongly encouraged to contact their Regional EPA Brownfields contacts, listed at the end of this guidance, prior to submitting their funding request. EPA will consider funding requests up to a maximum of $1.0 million per state or tribe for FY2014. Requests submitted by the January 31, 2014 request deadline are preliminary; final cooperative agreement work plans and budgets will be negotiated with the regional offices once final funding allocation determinations are made. As in previous years, EPA will place special emphasis on reviewing a cooperative agreement recipient’s use of prior section 128(a) funding in making allocation decisions and unexpended balances are subject to 40 CFR 35.118 and 40 CFR 35.518 to the extent consistent with this guidance. States and tribes requesting funds are required to provide a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number with their cooperative agreement’s final package. For more information, please go to www.grants.gov. II. Background State and tribal response programs oversee assessment and cleanup activities at brownfields sites across the country. The depth and breadth of state and tribal response programs vary. Some focus on CERCLA related activities, while others are multifaceted, addressing sites regulated by both CERCLA and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Many state programs also offer accompanying financial incentive programs to spur cleanup and redevelopment. In enacting CERCLA E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1
