Download as PDF sradovich on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with NOTICES 43554 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 179 / Monday, September 18, 2017 / Notices for cost-effective mitigation actions prior to a disaster event to reduce overall risks to the population and structures, while also reducing reliance on funding from actual disaster declarations. In accordance with OMB Circular A– 102, FEMA requires that all parties interested in receiving FEMA mitigation grants submit an application package for grant assistance. Applications and subapplications for the PDM and FMA programs are submitted via the e-Grants system. The e-Grants system was developed and updated to meet the intent of the e-Government initiative, authorized by Public Law 106–107. This initiative required that all government agencies both streamline grant application processes and provide for the means to electronically create, review, and submit a grant application via the Internet. Title 2 CFR 200.335, promulgated in 2013, encourages Federal awarding agencies and nonFederal entities to, whenever practicable, collect, transmit, and store Federal award-related information in open and machine readable formats rather than in closed formats or on paper. This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2017 at 82 FR 21548 with a 60-day public comment period. No public comments were received. This information collection expired on June 30, 2017. FEMA is requesting a reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved information collection for which approval has expired. Although FEMA initially proposed to revise this information collection by adding a new Quarterly Progress Report form, a new form is not necessary. The e-Grants system already collects information on the status of funded FMA/PDM mitigation activities on a quarterly basis after award. The information that is collected is limited to project status, work completed, number of properties acquired or relocated, and addresses of properties acquired or relocated during a given quarter. Therefore, FEMA is requesting a reinstatement of the collection without change. The purpose of this notice is to notify the public that FEMA will submit the information collection abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance.

The NSTAC advises the President on matters related to National Security and Emergency Preparedness (NS/EP) telecommunications and cybersecurity policy. Agenda: The committee will meet in an open session on October 11, 2017, receive remarks from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leadership and other senior Government officials regarding the Government’s current cybersecurity initiatives and NS/EP priorities. The meeting will include a keynote address and a panel discussion on a cybersecurity moonshot, which looks at identifying new processes to address cybersecurity challenges. NSTAC members will also deliberate and vote on the Committee’s NSTAC Report to the President on Internet and Communications Resilience which addresses ways in which the private sector and Government, together, can improve the resilience of the Internet and communications ecosystem (e.g., botnets). The committee will also meet in a closed session to receive a classified briefing regarding cybersecurity threats and discuss future studies based on the Government’s NS/EP priorities and perceived vulnerabilities. Basis for Closure: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552b(c), The Government in the Sunshine Act, it has been determined that two agenda items require closure, as the disclosure of the information discussed would not be in the public interest. The first of these agenda items, the classified briefing, will provide members with a cybersecurity threat briefing on vulnerabilities related to the communications infrastructure. Disclosure of these threats would provide criminals who seek to compromise commercial and Government networks with information on potential vulnerabilities and mitigation techniques, weakening the Nation’s cybersecurity posture. This briefing will be classified at the top secret level, thereby exempting disclosure of the content by statute. Therefore, this portion of the meeting is E:\FR\FM\18SEN1.SGM 18SEN1
