Bill Lesser, Program Specialist, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, (202) 646–2807. You may contact the Records Management Division for copies of the proposed collection of information at email address: FEMA-Information-CollectionsManagement@fema.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 541 of the National Flood Insurance Reform Act (NFIRA) of 1994, 42 U.S.C. 4022, requires that a community rating system be established. This ratings system is a voluntary program for communities and it would provide a method by which flood mitigation activities engaged in by these communities could be measured. The effect of this mitigation activity would reduce the exposure of the communities to damages resulting from flooding and in turn reduce the losses incurred as a result of this flooding. To encourage participation, discounts on flood insurance are offered within communities that successfully complete qualified mitigation actions, and the community ratings system provides the ability to measure these actions and to recertify the communities in successive years. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Collection of Information Title: Community Rating System (CRS) Program—Application Worksheets and Commentary.
