OMB Control Number: 0581–0288. Summary of Collection: The National Organic Certification Cost Share Program (NOCCSP) is authorized under section 10606(d)(1) of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (7 U.S.C. 7901 note), as amended by section 10004(c) of the Agriculture Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill: Pub. L. 113– 79). Under this authority, USDA is authorized to provide organic certification cost-share assistance through 50 States, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. Territories. Collection requirements are applied only to those State Departments of Agriculture and organic producers and handlers who voluntarily participate in one of two organic certification costshare programs: The NOCCSP or the Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) Organic Certification Cost-Share Program. To prevent duplicate assistance payments, producers participating in the AMS program are not eligible to participate in the producer portion of the NOCCSP. Need and Use of the Information: The information collection requirements in this request are applied only to those state agencies and organic producers and handlers who voluntarily participate in one of these programs for Fiscal Years 2014 to 2018. Each program provides cost-share assistance, through participating state agencies, to organic producers and, in the case of NOCCSP, to organic handlers. Recipients must receive initial certification or continuation of certification to the USDA organic regulations (7 CFR part 205) from a USDA-accredited certifying agent. The information collected from respondents is needed to ensure that program recipients are eligible for funding and comply with applicable program regulations.
