Hearing or speech-impaired individuals may access this number via TTY by calling the toll-free Federal Information Relay Service at 1–800– 877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program is authorized by section 302 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA). Under the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program, codified in 24 CFR part 1000.302, Indian tribes can request an expansion of their Formula Area that overlaps with another tribe’s Formula Area. In accordance with 24 CFR 1000.326(a)(3), which became effective on December 22, 2016, State tribes are eligible to request and receive Formula Area that were already assigned to Federally recognized tribes. According to § 1000.326(a)(3), when a State recognized tribe’s Formula Area overlaps with the Formula Area of a Federally recognized Indian tribe, the Federally recognized Indian tribe receives the allocation for the Formula Area up to its population cap, and the State recognized tribe receives the balance of the overlapping area (if any) up to its population cap. Pursuant to 24 CFR 1000.302, if a tribe asks HUD for an expansion of their Formula Area, after HUD makes its preliminary determination, HUD must notify all potentially affected Indian tribes of the basis for its preliminary determination by certified mail and provide the Indian tribes with opportunity to comment for a period of not less than 90 days. After consideration of the comments, § 1000.302 requires HUD to publish the notice of final determination in the Federal Register. On March 14, 2017, the MOWA Band of Choctaw Indian Tribe, a State recognized tribe, requested that their Formula Area be expanded to include the balance of Mobile County in the State of Alabama starting in Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. The portion of the county which is not reservation and trust lands is referred to as the balance of county. The Formula Area expansion requested by the MOWA Band of Choctaw Indian Tribe results in an overlapping Formula Area with the Poarch Creek Tribe, a Federally recognized tribe. In accordance with § 1000.326(a)(3), HUD made a preliminary determination on December 4, 2017, that the MOWA Band VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Apr 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 of Choctaw Indian Tribe meets the requirements for expanding its Formula Area to include the balance of Mobile County, Alabama. In accordance with § 1000.302, HUD notified the Poarch Creek Tribe about the basis for its preliminary determination by certified mail and provided opportunity to comment for a period of not less than 90 days. The required notification was sent to the Poarch Creek Tribe on December 4, 2017. As of March 5, 2018, no comments were received. Therefore, HUD made a final determination to add the balance of Mobile County, Alabama to the MOWA Band of Choctaw Indian Tribe’s Formula Area starting in FY 2017. The Tribe submitted their request for FY 2017 determination, therefore this final determination will apply to the Tribe’s request retroactively. Dated: April 16, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chad Mitcham, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, by mail to the address in ADDRESSES or by phone at (805) 677– 3328. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We have received requests from the County of Santa Cruz and City of Scotts Valley (applicants) for renewal of incidental take permits TE43708A–0 and TE44928A–0 under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The applicants have requested renewals that would extend permit authorization by 5 years from the date the permit is reissued. The applicants have agreed to follow all of the existing habitat conservation plan conditions. If renewed, no additional take above the original authorized limit of 139 acres of habitat will be authorized. The permits would authorize take of the federally endangered Mount Hermon June beetle (Polyphylla barbata), incidental to otherwise lawful activities associated with the Interim Programmatic Habitat Conservation Plan for the Endangered Mount Hermon June Beetle and Ben Lomond Spineflower (HCP). Background The Mount Hermon June beetle was listed by the Service as endangered on January 24, 1997. The Ben Lomond spineflower (Chorizanther pungens var. hartwegiana) was listed by the Service as endangered on February 4, 1994. Section 9 of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and its implementing regulations PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17837 prohibit the ‘‘take’’ of fish or wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. ‘‘Take’’ is defined under the Act to include the following activities: ‘‘[T]o harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532); however, under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act, we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed wildlife species. ‘‘Incidental Take’’ is defined by the Act as take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. The Code of Federal Regulations provides regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22, respectively. Under the Act, protections for federally listed plants differ from the protections afforded to federally listed animals. Take of listed plant species is not prohibited under the Act and cannot be authorized under a section 10 permit. Listed plant species may be included on an incidental take permit in recognition of the conservation benefit provided to them under an HCP. Issuance of an incidental take permit also must not jeopardize the existence of federally listed fish, wildlife, or plant species. All species included in the incidental take permit would receive assurances under our ‘‘No Surprises’’ regulations (50 CFR 17.22(b)(5) and 17.32(b)(5)). The applicants have applied for renewal of their respective permits for incidental take of the endangered Mount Hermon June beetle. The potential taking would occur by activities associated with the construction of certain eligible small development projects in densely developed residential neighborhoods (as defined in the HCP) that support suitable habitat for the covered species. The 10 Project Units within the HCP boundary were identified within the communities of Ben Lomond, Felton, Mount Hermon, and Scotts Valley in Santa Cruz County, California. Incidental take permits were first issued for the HCP on October 27, 2011.
