SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Abstract The Urban Park and Recreation Recovery (UPARR) Act (16 U.S.C. 2501 et seq.) was passed as Title X of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Mar 10, 2016 Jkt 238001 National Parks and Recreation Act of 1978. The UPARR Act authorized the Secretary of the Interior to establish a grant program to help economically distressed urban areas improve recreation opportunities for their residents. We administer the UPARR program in accordance with regulations at 36 CFR 72 and the UPARR Grant Manual. These (1) explain the policies to be followed for awarding grants; (2) list the requirements and criteria to be met for each type of grant and discretionary eligibility; (3) discuss fundable uses and limitations; (4) explain how proposals will be selected and funding; and (5) describe the application process and administrative procedures for awarding grants. The three types of grants available under the program are: • Rehabilitation—renovate or redesign existing close-to-home recreation facilities. • Innovation—specific activities that either increase recreation programs or improve the efficiency of the local government to operating existing programs. • Planning—development of a Recovery Action Program plan. The following are the information collection requirements for the UPARR Program: (1) Recovery Action Program: In accordance with 36 CFR 72.10–13, any eligible jurisdiction or discretionary applicant desiring to apply for a grant must develop and submit for NPS approval, a local Recovery Action Program (RAP). The RAP documents the recreation needs of the community and is linked to the objectives, needs, plans, and institutional arrangements of the community. The RAP consists of two sections, which are the Assessment and the Action Plan. The Assessment describes the existing park and recreation system; issues and problems; goals and objectives. The Assessment summarizes the entire system including: Operation and maintenance; employment and training; programs and services; rehabilitation of existing facilities; and the need for new facilities. The six parts of the Assessment include: Context; physical issues; rehabilitation issues; service issues; management issues; and conclusions, implications, and issues. The Action Plan is a clear statement of the community’s specific objectives, priorities and implementation strategies in relation to the intent of the UPARR Program and the local government’s overall recreation system goals. Citizen involvement in the development of the Action Plan is required and may include surveys, hearings, meetings, and/or PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consultation, as appropriate, which is essential in the development of goals, objectives and the setting of project priorities. The Action Plan identifies: The goals for the system; strategies to address national and local concerns, recommendations; program priorities and implementation schedule; and an evaluation of and update to the Action Program. In accordance with 36 CFR 72.30, applicants must have an approved RAP on file with the appropriate NPS Regional Office prior to applying for Rehabilitation or Innovation grants. Rehabilitation and Innovation proposals must be based on priorities identified in the applicant jurisdiction’s RAP. (2) Recovery Action Program Grant Applications: In accordance with 36 CFR 72.52, ranking and selection for funding of Recovery Action Program grants will be initiated on the basis of a full application, preparation of which will be assisted through meetings with NPS regional staff. The following documents are required to be submitted with the Recovery Action Program Grant Application: OMB Standard Forms such as the SF–424, the RAP Grant Agreement (Form # 10–911), narrative statements with a description and scope of the planning product(s) to be developed, a project budget, and a work schedule. (3) Preapplication for Rehabilitation and Innovation Grants: In accordance with 36 CFR 72.53, a preapplication procedure is used to reduce the amount of time and documentation needed for a full application, and to foster the competitive aspects of the UPARR Program. The preapplication must include those items as set forth in the Preapplication Handbook, to include: A letter of transmittal, SF–424, proposal description statement, a narrative describing how the project meets the selection criteria, maps, photographs (for construction projects), cost estimates, and pass through certifications (if applicable). The application must describe the problem addressed by the proposal, including existing conditions, the reason for the problem or why the condition exists, and what the UPARR assistance would do to alleviate the problem or condition. Discretionary applicants must also submit a narrative statement, signed by the chief executive of the applicant jurisdiction, explaining and quantifying the degree of physical and economic distress in the community must be included in each preapplication. (4) Full Application—Rehabilitation and Innovation Grants: In accordance with 36 CFR 72.54, once a Rehabilitation or Innovation proposal E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1
