Jamul, CA 91935, telephone (619) 669–4785. Copies of the Final SEIS will also be available for download from the Tribe’s Web site www.jamulindianvillage.com. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The JIV Reservation is located in the unincorporated portion of southwestern San Diego County approximately one mile south of the community of Jamul on approximately six-acres of land held in federal trust. State Route 94 (SR–94) provides regional access to the JIV from downtown San Diego, which is located approximately 20 miles to the west where it intersects with Highway 5. Local access to the JIV is provided directly from SR–94 via Daisy Drive. From the JIV, SR–94 travels briefly north and then west to Downtown San Diego, passing through the unincorporated communities of Jamul, Casa de Oro, Spring Valley and Lemon Grove. In 2000, JIV proposed a fee-to-trust land acquisition, construction and operation of a gaming complex and approval of a gaming development and management agreement for operation of the JIV Gaming Facility. The proposal was evaluated in a Final EIS prepared in 2003. Since that time, several major items have been removed from JIV’s overall development program and the Gaming Facility has been redesigned to fit entirely within the existing JIV Reservation. All environmental effects of the Gaming Facility redesign have been evaluated through preparation of a Final Tribal Environmental Evaluation, which was prepared in accordance with the 1999 Tribal/State Compact. No action is before the BIA due to no feeto-trust component of the JIV proposal. An action from the NIGC is required; specifically, approval or disapproval of the GMA. That approval or disapproval is the Proposed Action evaluated in the Final SEIS. In addition to the Proposed Action, the Final SEIS addresses the No Action Alternative, which assumes no approval of the GMA between JIV and SDGV. Under the No Action scenario, JIV would assume operation and management responsibilities of the Jamul Gaming Facility. The NIGC may, in its Record of Decision, select the No Action Alternative rather than the Proposed Action. This Final SEIS updates environmental conditions in the affected area given the amount of time that has passed since the 2003 Final EIS. Environmental issues addressed within VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:28 Jul 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 the Final SEIS include land resources, water resources, air quality, biological resources, cultural/paleontological resources, socioeconomic conditions, transportation, land use, public services, hazardous materials, noise, and visual resources. The Final SEIS examines the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of each alternative on these resources. The NIGC published a Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register on April 10, 2013, describing the Proposed Action, announcing the NIGC’s intent to prepare a Draft SEIS for the Proposed Action, and inviting comments. The Draft EIS Notice of Availability (NOA) was published in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on April 8, 2016 and the Draft SEIS was made available to federal, Tribal, state, and local agencies and other interested parties for review and comment. The comment period was open for 45 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register and closed on May 23, 2016. A total of nine comment letters were received. All comments received by the NIGC were considered and addressed in the Final SEIS, however, no substantive changes were made. The EPA published the NOA of the Final SEIS in the Federal Register on July 8, 2016 The Chairman of the NIGC will prepare and sign the record of decision (ROD) to announce his final decision on the GMA between the JIV and SDGV following the August 8, 2016 conclusion of the 30 day public comment and review period. Availability of the ROD will be announced to the media and the project mailing list, and the ROD itself will be made available online.

Abstract The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program encourages private sector investment in the rehabilitation and re-use of historic buildings. Through this program, underutilized or vacant schools, warehouses, factories, retail stores, apartments, hotels, houses, offices, and other buildings throughout the country, of every period, size, style and type, have been returned to useful life in a manner that maintains their historic character. To be eligible for the tax incentives for historic buildings, the building must be listed individually on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP); or located in a registered historic district and certified by the NPS as contributing to the historic significance of that district. A registered historic district is any district listed on the NRHP; or a state or local district if the district and the enabling statue have also been certified by the NPS. The NRHP is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code requires that the Secretary of the Interior certify to the Secretary of the Treasury upon application by owners of historic properties for Federal tax benefits: (a) The historic character of the property, and (b) that the rehabilitation work is consistent with that historic character. We administer the program with the Internal Revenue Service in partnership with the State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs). Owners of historic buildings use the Historic Preservation Certification Application (Forms 10–168, 10–168a, 10–168b, and 10–168c) to evaluate the condition and historic significance of buildings undergoing rehabilitation for continued use, and to evaluate whether or not the rehabilitation work meets the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Regulations at 36 CFR part 67 contain a requirement for completion of an application form. We need the information required on the application form to allow the authorized officer to determine if the applicant is qualified to obtain historic preservation certifications from the Secretary of the Interior. These certifications are necessary for an applicant to receive substantial Federal tax incentives authorized by section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code. These incentives include a 20% Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of historic buildings and an income tax deduction for the donation of easements on historic properties. The Internal Revenue Code also provides a 10% Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of nonhistoric buildings built before 1936, srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Form 10–168 (Part 1): Individuals ...........................................................................................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program encourages 
private sector investment in the rehabilitation and re-use of historic 
buildings. Through this program, underutilized or vacant schools, 
warehouses, factories, retail stores, apartments, hotels, houses, 
offices, and other buildings throughout the country, of every period, 
size, style and type, have been returned to useful life in a manner 
that maintains their historic character. To be eligible for the tax 
incentives for historic buildings, the building must be listed 
individually on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP); or 
located in a registered historic district and certified by the NPS as 
contributing to the historic significance of that district. A 
registered historic district is any district listed on the NRHP; or a 
state or local district if the district and the enabling statue have 
also been certified by the NPS. The NRHP is the official list of the 
Nation's historic places worthy of preservation.
    Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code requires that the Secretary 
of the Interior certify to the Secretary of the Treasury upon 
application by owners of historic properties for Federal tax benefits: 
(a) The historic character of the property, and (b) that the 
rehabilitation work is consistent with that historic character. We 
administer the program with the Internal Revenue Service in partnership 
with the State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs). Owners of 
historic buildings use the Historic Preservation Certification 
Application (Forms 10-168, 10-168a, 10-168b, and 10-168c) to evaluate 
the condition and historic significance of buildings undergoing 
rehabilitation for continued use, and to evaluate whether or not the 
rehabilitation work meets the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for 
Rehabilitation.
    Regulations at 36 CFR part 67 contain a requirement for completion 
of an application form. We need the information required on the 
application form to allow the authorized officer to determine if the 
applicant is qualified to obtain historic preservation certifications 
from the Secretary of the Interior. These certifications are necessary 
for an applicant to receive substantial Federal tax incentives 
authorized by section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code. These incentives 
include a 20% Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of 
historic buildings and an income tax deduction for the donation of 
easements on historic properties. The Internal Revenue Code also 
provides a 10% Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of 
nonhistoric buildings built before 1936, and an owner of a nonhistoric 
building in a historic district must also use the application to obtain 
a certification from the Secretary of the Interior that his or her 
building does not contribute to the significance of the historic 
district before claiming this lesser tax credit for rehabilitation.
    State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs) are the first point of 
contact for property owners wishing to use the rehabilitation tax 
credit. They help applicants determine if an historic building is 
eligible for Federal or State historic preservation tax incentives, 
provide guidance on an application before or after the project begins, 
and provide advice on appropriate preservation work. SHPOs use Forms 
10-168d and 10-168e to make recommendations to NPS.
    In accordance with 36 CFR part 67, we also collect information for: 
(1) Certifications of State and local statutes (Sec.  67.8), (2) 
certifications of State or local historic districts (Sec.  67.9), and 
(3) appeals (Sec.  67.10).

III. Comments

    On January 13, 2016, we published in the Federal Register (81 FR 
1640) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for 
this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 
60 days, ending on March 14, 2016. We received no comments in response 
to the Notice.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal 
identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
