We have added this amount to the total estimated costs for the collection. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information: 5 (1) Estimated Number of Respondents The estimated burden hours for the grant application and annual report part of the collection of information are based on all eligible respondents each year for each of the grants: • Section 402 grants: 57 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs); • Section 405 Grants (except Impaired Driving Countermeasures, Motorcyclist Safety and Nonmotorized Grants) and Section 1906 Grant: 56 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands); and • Section 405, Impaired Driving Countermeasures, Motorcyclist Safety and Nonmotorized Grants: 52 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico). The estimated burden hours for the assessment part of the collection of information are based on the average number of State assessments that are carried out each year in each of the covered grant areas: 6 • Section 405, Occupant protection grants: 9 assessments; • Section 405, Traffic safety information system improvement grants: 11 assessments; and • Section 405, Impaired driving countermeasure grants: 4 assessments. (2) Estimated Hours per Respondent daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES • Section 402 and 405 Grant Applications/Annual Report: 420 • Occupant Protection Grant Assessments: 80 • Traffic Safety Information System Improvement Grant Assessments: 165 • Impaired Driving Countermeasures Grant Assessments: 80 (3) Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 26,615 Under the grant application and annual report requirements for Sections 402 and 405, we estimate that it will take each respondent approximately 420 hours to collect, review and submit the required information to NHTSA. For traffic safety information system improvement grants, we estimate that it will take 165 hours to respond to questions under the assessment. For occupant protection and impaired driving countermeasures grants, we estimate that it will take 80 hours to provide the required information and respond to questions under an assessment. Based on the above information, the estimated annual burden hours for all respondents are 26,615 hours. Assuming the average salary of the individuals preparing the application materials or assessment responses is $50.00 per hour, the estimated cost for each respondent to respond is $23,350. If all eligible States applied for and received grants for all programs (and including the annual number of assessment responses required from States), the total labor costs for all respondents would be $1,330,750. In addition to these labor costs, NHTSA is revising the total costs to include the assessment team costs paid for by States under occupant protection and impaired driving assessments. Annually, these additional costs are $25,000 per assessment, totaling $325,000 based on the average estimated number of assessments conducted each year for these programs. Based on these additional costs, the overall total cost is revised to be $1,655,750. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44. U.S.C.
