SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Collection of Information Title: Application for Participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Type of information collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0004. Form Titles and Numbers: FEMA Form 086–0–30, Application for Participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. Abstract: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides flood insurance to the communities that apply for participation and make a commitment to adopt and enforce land use control measures that are established to reduce risk to people and property in flood-prone areas. The application form and supporting documentation will enable FEMA to continue to rapidly process new community applications and to thereby more quickly provide flood insurance protection to the residents in these communities. This collection has been updated to account for the burden hours associated with the communities’ floodplain development permitting process. To qualify for the NFIP, a participating community must adopt certain minimum standards in accordance with FEMA’s regulations at 44 CFR 60.3, 60.4, and 60.5. In order to verify whether communities maintain such standards, the NFIP requires participating communities to retain documentation on development taking place in the flood hazard areas within the community. 44 CFR 59.22. Such information will be made available to FEMA upon request. This information assists FEMA in evaluating the effectiveness of a community’s floodplain management program and, through that, the community’s continuing eligibility to participate in the program. In the past, the NFIP application did not account for burden hours associated with this collection of information. PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Application for Participation in the NFIP and the Community Development Permit Process are separate actions documented under the same collection. Affected Public: State, local or Tribal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 20,344. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 221,121 hours. Estimated Cost: The estimated annual cost to respondents for the hour burden is $9,382,164.30. There are no annual costs to respondents operations and maintenance costs for technical services. There is no annual start-up or capital costs. The cost to the Federal Government is $74,788. Dated: May 28, 2014. Charlene D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations implementing Property Acquisition and Relocation for Open Space are codified at 44 CFR part 80. These regulations govern property acquisitions for the creation of open space under all of FEMA’s hazard mitigation assistance (HMA) grant programs: The Pre-Disaster Mitigation program (PDM) and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), which are authorized under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 5121–5207; and the Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA) authorized under the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq. Acquisition and relocation of property for open space use is one of the most common mitigation activities and is an eligible activity type authorized for Federal grant funds under PDM, HMGP, and FMA. FEMA HMA programs require all properties acquired with FEMA funds to be deed restricted and maintained as open space in perpetuity. This ensures that no future risks from hazards occur to life or structures on that property, and no future disaster assistance or insurance payments are made as a result of damages to that property. This extension of a currently approved collection of information is necessary to establish uniform requirements for State and local implementation of acquisition activities, and to enforce open space maintenance and monitoring requirements for properties acquired with FEMA mitigation grant funds.
