Based on the jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:56 Mar 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 number and type of interested stakeholders that have contacted the Department about this program, OST estimates that it will receive fifty (50) applications and fifty (50) letters of interest and that it will generally not take applicants more than 100 personhours to assemble individual applications and 20 person-hours to assemble individual letters of interest. Therefore, the total annual hour burden of this collection of applications is 6,000 hours. Frequency of Collection: The Department expects that this information collection will occur on a rolling basis as interested entities seek TIFIA credit assistance. Background: This is an existing information collection that was originally approved through the emergency approval process on August 7, 2013. DOT will use the collected information to evaluate and select recipients for credit assistance. Applicants may be asked to provide additional supporting evidence or to quantify details during the review and negotiation process on a case-by-case basis, but completion of the letter of interest and application. The application process required of 23 U.S.C. 602(a)(1)(A) begins with the submission of a letter of interest (LOI). Only after a project sponsor has submitted an LOI demonstrating satisfaction of all statutory eligibility requirements can the project sponsor be invited to submit an application. The LOI must describe the project, outline the proposed financial plan, provide a status of environmental review, and provide information regarding satisfaction of other eligibility requirements of the TIFIA credit program, in each case as indicated on the LOI form located on the Build America Bureau’s TIFIA Web page: https://www.transportation.gov/ buildamerica/programs-services/tifia/ applications. DOT estimates that the letter of interest would require approximately 20 hours in each instance to complete. If TIFIA determines that a project sponsor has satisfied the eligibility requirements described in 23 U.S.C. 602(a), TIFIA may invite the project sponsor to submit an application. The information that DOT seeks through the application includes: Contact information; project information, project purpose, cost, TIFIA credit assistance request, satisfaction of eligibility requirements, including creditworthiness, a financial plan, details of the applicant’s organizational structure, and such other information as is indicated on the application form PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15101 located on the Build America’s TIFIA Web page at: https:// www.transportation.gov/buildamerica/ programs-services/tifia/applications.
