In 1972, in response to intense pressure on United States (U.S.) coastal resources, and because of the importance of U.S. coastal areas, the U.S. Congress passed the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq. The CZMA authorized a federal program to encourage coastal states and territories to develop comprehensive coastal management programs. The CZMA has been reauthorized on several occasions, most recently with the enactment of the Coastal Zone Protection Act of 1996. (CZMA as amended). The program is administered by the Secretary of Commerce, who in turn has delegated this responsibility to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Ocean Services (NOS). The coastal zone management grants provide funds to states and territories to: Implement federally-approved coastal management programs; complete information for the Coastal Zone Management Program (CZMP) Performance Management System; develop multi-year program assessments and strategies to enhance their programs within priority areas under Section 309 of the CZMA; submit documentation as described in the CZMA Section 306A on the approved coastal zone management programs; submit requests to update their federally-approved programs through amendments or program changes; and develop and submit state coastal nonpoint pollution control programs (CNP) as required under Section 6217 of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments. Revisions 1. The CZMA Section 306A guidance and project questionnaire have been updated to reduce confusion.

These uploads need to be allowable on a daily basis, and need to be uploaded into a publicly available database. The database should have the ability to contain information for each program change (as in what is currently included in the Microsoft Access database) and to hold associated program change documents; Allow the ability to provide electronic notices to state agencies, federal agencies and the public by adding the notices to the online database and also automatically sending them to a particular list of contacts; and Provide an area on the website/database interface for interested parties to request to be added to the automatic notification contact list.

[[Page 67234]]

    Number of Respondents: 34.

encourage coastal states and territories to develop comprehensive 
coastal management programs. The CZMA has been reauthorized on several 
occasions, most recently with the enactment of the Coastal Zone 
Protection Act of 1996. (CZMA as amended). The program is administered 
by the Secretary of Commerce, who in turn has delegated this 
responsibility to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's

    The coastal zone management grants provide funds to states and 
territories to: Implement federally-approved coastal management 
programs; complete information for the Coastal Zone Management Program

current guidance and proposed revisions can be found at https://coast.noaa.gov/czm/guidance/. Based on recent experience, the time 
estimate for completing the questionnaire and collecting the necessary 
documentation is being increased from 5 hours to 15 hours per project.

program change submission process and will replace the current paper-
only submission process. The new site will provide the following 
functionalities: Make active program change documents electronically 
available to the public, states and federal agencies; Provide 
electronic notices to state agencies, federal agencies and the public 
of state program change submissions, OCM decision deadlines and OCM

the public who request such notifications via email; Allow federal 
agencies and the public to submit comments to OCM on individual state 
program change submissions; Allow ability of OCM staff to upload text-
searchable PDF documents that are part of program changes. These
