These mechanisms are intended to augment existing Tech-to-Market efforts currently supported. This Funding Opportunity is not intended to fund individual technology solutions directly. Rather, it will fund approaches that address common barriers across the larger energy ecosystem and help create more efficient pathways to market for clean energy technologies. Subject to the availability of funds, up to $4,200,000 in Federal assistance will be provided over two years through this funding opportunity. A 20% recipient cost-share is required. EERE anticipates selecting up to seven pilot projects in the first year. After the first year, EERE will conduct a continuation review of the pilot projects. Up to three of the projects will be granted a continuation for a second year. Lead applicants may include, but are not limited to, educational institutions, incubators/accelerators, research labs, non-profit entities, industry associations, corporations, and investment/financial/insurance firms.

Abstract: This ICR will consolidate two separate ICRs that currently individually cover EPA Declaration Forms 3520–1, 3520–21, and 3520–8. EPA Declaration Form 3520–1 is used by importers of on-highway vehicles and motorcycles and EPA Declaration Form 3520–21 is used by importers of nonroad vehicles, engines and equipment to help facilitate importation of products at U.S. Borders. Each form identifies the regulated category of engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the burden of EPA Form 3520– 8 which is used to request final importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers (ICIs) of onhighway vehicles who are required to bring the on-highway vehicles into compliance and provide test results. This form is currently covered by OMB 2060–0095. EPA is consolidating these two ICRS due to the effort being undertaken by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require electronic filing for all importers. Over the last several years, CBP has been developing the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) for electronic filing. By the end of 2016, ACE will become the primary system the trade community and other importers will use to report imports and exports. Through ACE as the single window, manual processes will be streamlined and automated, and paper submissions (e.g., fillable PDFs) will essentially be eliminated. However, EPA will continue to maintain the forms on our Web site in fillable PDF format. EPA does not collect the forms, but rather makes them available to importers and CBP to facilitate entry of goods at the port. EPA may ask for them upon request to assist CPB and/or EPA enforcement personnel for any given import for which there are questions or issues. The forms are primarily used by CBP at the time of importation to assist CBP in making determination if entry should be allowed. CBP regulations require that the forms be submitted as applicable at the time of entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74. Form Numbers: 3520–1, 3520–21, 3520–8. Frequency of Response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may be used.)

Total Estimated Burden: 13,985 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

Abstract: Discharge Monitoring Report-Quality Assurance (DMR–QA) study program participation is mandatory for major and selected minor National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit holders in accordance with Clean Water Act Section 308. The DMR–QA study program is designed to evaluate the analytic ability of the laboratories that perform chemical, microbiological and whole effluent toxicity (WET) analyses required in the NPDES permits for reporting results in Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR). Under DMR–QA, the permit holder is responsible for having their in-house and/or contract laboratories perform proficiency tests and submit results for grading by proficiency test (PT) providers. Graded results are transmitted by either the permittee or PT provider to the appropriate federal or ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4335 state NPDES regulatory authority. Permit holders are responsible for submitting corrective action reports to the appropriate regulatory authority when results are unsatisfactory. Form Numbers: EPA Form 6400–01. Respondents/Affected Entities: Major and selected minor permit holders under the Clean Water Act’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Respondent’s Obligation To Respond: Mandatory under Clean Water Act Section 308(a). Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,700 (total). Frequency of Response: Annually, On occasion. Total Estimated Burden: 37,620 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total Estimated Cost: $5,113,983 (per year), includes $3,194,052 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 1,259 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase in burden hours can be attributed to an increase in discretionary selection of minor permit holders for participation by state coordinators. Labor costs were revised upward due to market changes and inflation. Non-labor costs for obtaining proficiency test samples also increased. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

    Abstract: This ICR will consolidate two separate ICRs that 
currently individually cover EPA Declaration Forms 3520-1, 3520-21, and 
3520-8. EPA Declaration Form 3520-1 is used by importers of on-highway 
vehicles and motorcycles and EPA Declaration Form 3520-21 is used by 
importers of nonroad vehicles, engines and equipment to help facilitate 
importation of products at U.S. Borders. Each form identifies the 
regulated category of engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions 
under which the importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR 
covers the burden of EPA Form 3520-8 which is used to request final 
importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers (ICIs) of 
on-highway vehicles who are required to bring the on-highway vehicles 
into compliance and provide test results. This form is currently 
covered by OMB 2060-0095. EPA is consolidating these two ICRS due to 
the effort being undertaken by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
to require electronic filing for all importers. Over the last several 
years, CBP has been developing the Automated Commercial Environment 
(ACE) for electronic filing. By the end of 2016, ACE will become the 
primary system the trade community and other importers will use to 
report imports and exports. Through ACE as the single window, manual 
processes will be streamlined and automated, and paper submissions 
(e.g., fillable PDFs) will essentially be eliminated. However, EPA will 
continue to maintain the forms on our Web site in fillable PDF format.
    EPA does not collect the forms, but rather makes them available to 
importers and CBP to facilitate entry of goods at the port. EPA may ask 
for them upon request to assist CPB and/or EPA enforcement personnel 
for any given import for which there are questions or issues. The forms

vehicles and nonroad engines, vehicles, and equipment.
    Respondent's Obligation to Respond: Required for any importer to

    Changes in Estimates: EPA is establishing new burden estimates as 
we combine the burden estimates for the two separate ICRs that 
currently cover the forms.
