[FR Doc. 2017–24112 Filed 11–3–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6560–50–P FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION [GN Docket No. 12–268; MB Docket No. 16– 306; DA 17–1015] Incentive Auction Task Force and Media Bureau Announce the Initial Reimbursement Allocation for Eligible Broadcasters and MVPDs Federal Communications Commission. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In this document the Incentive Auction Task Force and the Media Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) announce the issuance of an initial allocation of the TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund (Fund) in the amount of $1 billion to begin to reimburse eligible television broadcasters and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs), for reasonably incurred expenses related to the post-incentive auction repacking. Pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:48 Nov 03, 2017 Jkt 244001 November 6, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Raphael Sznajder at (202) 418–1648 or Raphael.Sznajder@fcc.gov, or Jeffrey Neumann at (202) 418–2046 or Jeffrey.Neumann@fcc.gov, of the Media Bureau. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Spectrum Act requires the Commission to ‘‘reimburse costs reasonably incurred’’ by broadcast television licensees that are involuntarily reassigned to new channels as a result of the repacking process and by MVPDs in order to continue carrying the signals of licensees reassigned to new channels as a result of the incentive auction and repacking process (together, Eligible Entities). The Incentive Auction Report and Order (FCC–14–50) set forth the process for reimbursing these Eligible Entities. Pursuant to the process established therein, this Public Notice (DA 17–1015) announces an initial allocation of approximately $1 billion, which is based on the total verified demand on the Fund, as of October 10, 2017. Eligible Entities submitted estimates of the expenditures they expect to incur as a result of the postauction repack. After the Fund Administrator completed its reasonableness review of the estimates, and the Bureau reviewed and verified its recommendations, the total reimbursement demand for the purposes of the initial allocation, as of October 10, 2017, was $1,863,971,470.42. Based on this demand, the initial allocation will give commercial stations and MVPDs access to approximately 52 percent of their currently estimated and verified costs, and noncommercial educational stations access to approximately 62 percent of their currently estimated and verified costs. This Public Notice also announces that each Eligible Entity will receive an email on behalf of the Bureau describing the specific results of the reasonableness review of its estimated costs, which included: The aggregate verified amount for that entity’s submitted estimate; where adjustments (if any) were made; and the rationale and amount of the modification to any cost estimate line items. Eligible Entities may view their individual allocations in the CORES Incentive Auction Financial Module pursuant to the procedures outlined in the Financial Procedures Public Notice (DA–17–282). The initial allocation does not reflect the total estimated cost of a station’s anticipated expenditures. All stations that are transitioning to new channels should be aware of the applicable phase transition deadlines and plan for and initiate the various PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51417 stages of their construction project in a timely manner to satisfy them. We have provided several tools that allow us to provide relief to stations that are ultimately unable to satisfy certain deadlines due to circumstances beyond their control, but failure to timely initiate a construction project or undertake necessary steps to complete the transition by the phase transition date due to the amount of the initial allocation or any subsequent allocation will not be weighed favorably as a factor in considering such relief. This is a summary of the FCC’s document GN Docket No. 12–268; MB Docket No. 16– 306; DA 17–1015 (released Oct. 16, 2017). Federal Communications Commission. Barbara A.

ACTION: Issuance of final policies. AGENCY: Administration for Native Americans (ANA) is issuing final interpretive rules, general statements of policy and rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice relating to the following six proposed FY2018 Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs): Environmental Regulatory Enhancement (HHS–2018–ACF–ANA–NR–1344); Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance—Esther Martinez Immersion (HHS–2018–ACF–ANA–NB– 1343); Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance (HHS– 2018–ACF–NA–NL–1342); Social and Economic Development Strategies (HHS–2018–ACF–ANA–NA–1339); Social and Economic Development Strategies—Alaska (HHS–2018–ACF– ANA–NK–1340); and Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (HHS–2018–ACF– ANA–NC–1341). DATES: The policies described in the Notice for Public Comment (NOPC), as amended in this notice if applicable, are effective immediately upon publication of this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carmelia Strickland, Director, Division of Program Operations, Administration for Native Americans, (877) 922–9262, ANAComments@acf.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 814 of the Native American Programs Act of 1974 (NAPA), as amended, requires ANA to provide notice and allow for comment on its proposed interpretive rules and general statements of policy. On August 14, 2017, ANA published a NOPC with proposed policy and program clarifications for the FY 2018 FOAs. ANA also follows the ACF Tribal Pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:48 Nov 03, 2017 Jkt 244001 A. Comments and Responses to the August 14, 2017, NOPC ANA published a NOPC in the Federal Register on August 14, 2017, with proposed policy and program clarifications, modifications, and activities for the FY 2018 FOAs. ANA sent a Dear Tribal Leader letter electronically and via U.S. mail the same day with the NOPC attached. The NOPC provided proposed clarifications, modifications, and new text for six proposed FY 2018 FOAs. The FY 2018 FOAs are based on the FY 2017 FOAs, previously published as: Environmental Regulatory Enhancement (HHS–2017– ACF–ANA–NR–1221); Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance—Esther Martinez Immersion (HHS–2017–ACF–ANA–NB– 1226); Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance (HHS– 2017–ACF–ANA–NL–1235); Social and Economic Development Strategies (HHS–2017–ACF–ANA–NA–1236); Social and Economic Development Strategies—Alaska (HHS–2015–ACF– ANA–NK– 0960); and Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (HHS–2017–ACF– ANA–NC–1263). The public comment period was open for 30 days. ANA also publicized a background call on the NOPC for August 23, 2017, and had 14 callers on the line. ANA did not receive any feedback on the FOA changes from tribal governments. ANA received one response to the NOPC from the SissetonWahpeton Oyate Dakotah Language Institute. Comments expressed concerns or made suggestions about some of the changes. ANA considered the comments and determined there to be none that required changes to any of the FOAs. The following includes comments from the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Dakotah Language Institute and responses provided by ANA: Comment: When changing the application criteria, please make the changes effective two grant PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 cycles from the adoption date. Sometimes the application due dates are changed because there are upcoming changes to the Funding Opportunity Announcement and a comment period has to be allowed. And then, the grant start dates are pushed back and then the entire timeline developed in the project planning is no longer applicable. Response: The FOAs, which contain the application criteria specific to each program area, are published on an annual basis. Through the NOPC, ANA provided advance notice to applicants about the proposed changes in FY 2018 to its six FOAs. ANA is unable to provide specific language until the publication of the actual FOAs. Therefore, ANA is not able to make changes to the application criteria prior to the effective date. Comment: Regarding the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) Notice inaccurately reflecting the amount of time it takes to file an ANA application: Each hour spent on a grant application is one less hour that can be spent working on our endangered language, especially for a small program like ours. A more accurate Paperwork Reduction Notice may have weight in deciding whether it is actually worth it to invest the amount of time it takes to complete the process with very little chance of success. Response: ANA’s FOAs are drafted within the context of a Uniform Project Description (UPD), which serves to provide the overall structure for all applications submitted to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The UPD includes specific standard text that applies to all ACF programs, in combination with program-specific text that is added by individual program offices. The PRA notice is part of the ACF UPD, which is managed ACF-wide, and determined based on the average amount of time it takes to complete the project description and the budget and budget justification for ACF programs as a whole. The estimated burden of 60 hours does not include supplementary information that an applicant may want to include. While there is likely to be variation among different programs and applicants, the average estimated time to complete an application for ACF programs is 60 hours. ANA will forward the comment to the ACF branch that handles the UPD to be considered upon the renewal of the PRA clearance for the UPD. Comment: If you are putting in new terms that are common terms to those working in a federal program accepting grant applications, please make sure the new terms are adequately explained. How can a person comment about changing from ‘‘results’’ and ‘‘benefits’’ to E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
