Title: Transit Investments in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction (TIGGER) Program. OMB Control Number: 2132–0566. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) established the Transit Investments in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction (TIGGER) Program with $100 million in new discretionary grant program funding to support public transit agencies in making capital investments that would assist in the reduction of energy consumption or greenhouse gas emissions within their public transportation systems. In two subsequent years, The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Related Agencies Appropriations Act, The Department of Defense and FullYear Continuing Appropriations Act appropriated an additional $75 million and $49.9 million, respectively, for FY 2010 and FY 2011. The TIGGER Program has awarded 87 competitively selected projects, implementing a wide variety of technologies to meet program goals. The awarded projects were geographically diverse, covering 35 states and 67 different transit agencies in both urban and rural settings. Since there has been no new funding since 2011, the information that’s currently being collected for this program is submitted as part of the Project Management reporting requirements for TIGGER. The collection of Project Management information provides documentation that the recipients of TIGGER funds are meeting program objectives and are complying with FTA Circular 5010.1D, ‘‘Grant Management Requirements’’ and other federal requirements. FTA has published a Federal Register notice for the Announcement of Project Selections for each NOFA in consecutive FY, 2009, 2010, and 2011, identifying program recipients. Annual Estimated Total Burden Hours: 3,072 hours. Comments Are Invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:24 Nov 16, 2016 Jkt 241001 have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; 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, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
