SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Implementation Phase Review of the LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative. OMB Approval Number: N/A. Type of Request: New. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative began in the summer of 2013 as part of a federal interagency initiative. The initiative’s goal is to prevent homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, and to intervene early when homelessness occurs for these youth. Federal partners from the U.S. Departments of Education, Health, and Juvenile Justice, as well as Frequency of response Responses per annum Burden hour per response the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, support this HUD initiative. The initiative supports the federal goal to end youth homelessness by 2020 and contributes to the development of a model for preventing LGBT youth homelessness that other communities can replicate. There are two communities participating in this initiative and both receive technical assistance (TA) to support their initiative planning (and later in the process, their initiative implementation). This request for OMB clearance covers the implementation phase which will document the approach and experiences of both communities as they have implemented their local plans. Furthermore, this review will examine the resources required to carry out implementation, what worked well, what challenges emerged and how they were addressed, lessons learned, and recommendations both sites offer for potential replication. To produce this information, HUD will collect quantitative and qualitative data from primary sources using four methods: Interviews, surveys, focus groups, and document review. Participants will consist of the local initiative leads as well as individuals involved in local initiative steering committees and subcommittees and community members associated with the initiative. Respondents (i.e. affected public): Organizations participating in the two local initiatives, including local lead organization, and participants on the local steering committees and subcommittees, and community members.

Abstract On March 16, 1934, President Roosevelt signed the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act (16 U.S.C. 718a et seq.) requiring all migratory waterfowl hunters 16 years of age or older to buy a Federal migratory bird hunting and conservation stamp (Federal Duck Stamp) annually. The stamps are a vital tool for wetland conservation. Ninetyeight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. The Federal Duck Stamp is one of the most successful conservation programs ever initiated and is a highly effective way to conserve America’s natural resources. Besides serving as a hunting license and a conservation tool, a current year’s Federal Duck Stamp also serves as an entrance pass for national wildlife refuges where admission is charged. Duck Stamps and products that bear stamp images are also popular collector items. The Electronic Duck Stamp Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–266) required the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a 3year pilot program under which States could issue electronic Federal Duck Stamps. The electronic stamp is valid for 45 days from the date of purchase and can be used immediately while customers wait to receive the actual PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 stamp in the mail. After 45 days, customers must carry the actual Federal Duck Stamp while hunting or to gain free access to national wildlife refuges. Eight States participated in the pilot. At the end of the pilot, we provided a report to Congress outlining the successes of the program. The program improved public participation by increasing the ability of the public to obtain required Federal Duck Stamps. Under the authority provided by the Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act of 2013 (H.R. 1206), we continue the Electronic Duck Stamp Program in the 19 States that participate currently. We plan to expand the program by inviting all State fish and wildlife agencies to participate. Anyone, regardless of State residence, may purchase an electronic Duck Stamp through any State that participates in the program. Interested States must submit an application (FWS Form 3–2341). We will use the information provided in the application to determine a State’s eligibility to participate in the program. Information includes, but is not limited to: • Current systems the State uses to sell hunting, fishing, and other associated licenses and products. • Applicable State laws, regulations, or policies that authorize the use of electronic systems to issue licenses. • Example and explanation of the codes the State proposes to use to create and endorse the unique identifier for the individual to whom each stamp is issued. • Mockup copy of the printed version of the State’s proposed electronic stamp, including a description of the format and identifying features of the licensee to be specified on the stamp. • Description of any fee the State will charge for issuance of an electronic stamp. • Description of the process the State will use to account for and transfer the amounts collected by the State that are required to be transferred under the program. • Manner by which the State will transmit electronic stamp customer data. Each State approved to participate in the program must provide the following information on a weekly basis: • First name, last name, and complete mailing address of each individual that purchases an electronic stamp from the State.
