Notice of Petitions by Firms for Determination of Eligibility To Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance, 12716 [2018-05894]

Download as PDF 12716 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 57 / Friday, March 23, 2018 / Notices enhance local resource management efforts by helping public officials, land managers, and civic stewards connect to local stewardship groups. STEW–MAP is being led by researchers from the Forest Service in partnership with researchers from universities and nongovernment organizations. The exact makeup of the research team will vary from location to location where STEW–MAP is conducted. The Forest Service Research and Development branch is authorized to conduct basic scientific research to improve the health of forests and rangelands involving State, Federal, Tribal agencies, and private landowners across multiple jurisdictions including in urban areas. The study is aligned with the U.S. Department of Agriculture policy of an ‘‘all-lands approach’’ to resource management, which ‘‘requires land managers to work across jurisdictions and land-use types, viewing forests landscapes as an integrated whole, both ecologically and socially’’ (National Report on Sustainable Forests, 2010). This all lands approach applies to urban ecosystems as well. Our project goals are also consistent with the Forest Service, Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) program, which focus on urban forest ecosystems and the role of stewardship and trail connections to parks and public lands that promote health and sustainability for urban residents. This study seeks to identify opportunities for stewardship organizations to better collaborate and, thus, be more effective in the stewardship of all natural areas. Due to local geographical and/or cultural differences, and to meet the needs of any particular collaborative effort, we may tailor the survey and interview questions to accommodate the unique requirements of individual communities. Affected Public: Representatives from civic environmental stewardship groups, and from State, local, or Tribal Governments. Estimate of Burden per Response: 15 to 60 minutes. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: Phase One (Census): 600. Phase Two (Survey): 15,000. Phase Three (Follow-up Interviews): 300. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 7,925 hours. Comment is Invited Comment is invited on: (1) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the stated purposes and the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical or scientific utility; (2) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments received in response to this notice, including names and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. Comments will be summarized and included in the submission request toward Office of Management and Budget approval. Dated: March 13, 2018.
