ACTION: Notice of a modified system of records. AGENCY: The Inventory Management System, also known as the Public and Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC) serves as a national repository of information related to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), HUD-assisted families, HUD-assisted properties, and other HUD programs for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of HUD rental housing assistance programs. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) proposes to modify the system of records titled, Inventory Management System (IMS), also known as Public and Indian Housing Information Center (PIC), HUD/PIH.01. This system of records allows the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Public and Indian Housing to collect and maintain records on individuals and organizations administering, participating in, or potentially affected by, housing assistance programs administered by HUD. This proposed modification of the IMS/PIC system would allow the system to contain additional categories of records and types of individuals. Specifically, IMS/ PIC will store information about applicants for disaster recovery assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), provided pursuant to a computer matching agreement. Storing these records will enable HUD to aid individuals affected by natural disasters and prevent improper payments. DATES: Comments are due on April 24, 2019. Unless comments are received that warrant a revision, this modification will become effective on April 24, 2019.

IMS/PIC allows PHAs, TDHEs, and their-hired management agents to electronically submit information to HUD that is related to the administration of HUD’s PIH programs. It collects data for PIH operations, including data submitted via the internet from HUD’s field offices, and accurately tracks activities and processes. IMS/PIC also helps to increase sharing of information throughout PIH and HUD, which improves staff awareness of activities related to the administration of HUDsubsidized housing programs. IMS/PIC is a flexible, scalable, internet-based integrated system, which enables PHA and TDHE users, and HUD personnel to access a common database via their web browser. IMS/PIC aids HUD and entities that administer HUD’s assisted housing programs in: (a) Increasing the effective distribution of rental assistance to individuals that meet the requirements of federal rental assistance programs; (b) detecting abuses in assisted housing programs; (c) taking administrative or legal actions to resolve past and current abuses of assisted housing programs; (d) monitoring compliance with HUD program requirements; (e) deterring abuses by verifying the employment and income of tenants at the time of annual and interim reexaminations of family income and composition via the PIH Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system; (f) evaluating program effectiveness; (g) improving PHA and TDHE IMS/PIC reporting rates; (h) forecasting budgets; (i) controlling funds; (j) updating tenant information; and (k) updating building and unit data.

ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), have received two applications for an incidental take permit for the federally endangered California tiger salamander (Santa Barbara County distinct population segment) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. La Laguna Los Alamos LLC, submitted a permit application which, if issued, would authorize take incidental to otherwise lawful activities associated with the La Laguna Los Alamos Project draft habitat conservation plan.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rachel Henry, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, 805–677–3312 (by phone), or at the Ventura Fish and Wildlife office (by mail; see ADDRESSES). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We have received two applications for incidental take permits under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The applicants of the incidental take permits have developed draft habitat conservation plans (HCPs) for the respective projects that include measures to mitigate and avoid/minimize impacts to the federally endangered Santa Barbara County distinct population segment (DPS) of California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense). The permits would authorize take of the Santa Barbara County DPS of the federally endangered California tiger salamander incidental to otherwise lawful activities. These permits would authorize incidental take associated with the two respective projects: The draft La Laguna HCP and the draft Phillips 66 Idle Pipeline 352x4 Abandonment Project HCP. We invite public comment on the draft HCPs, draft low-effect screening forms, and environmental action statements. Background The Service listed the Santa Barbara County DPS of the California tiger salamander as endangered on September 21, 2000 (65 FR 57242). Section 9 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1538) and its implementing regulations prohibit the ‘‘take’’ of fish or wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. ‘‘Take’’ is defined under the PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11121 ESA 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 ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539(a)(1)(B)), we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed species. Incidental take is take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for endangered wildlife are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.22. Issuance of an incidental take permit also must not jeopardize the existence of federally listed fish, wildlife, or plant species. The permittees would receive assurances under our ‘‘No Surprises’’ regulations (50 CFR 17.22(b)(5)) regarding conservation activities for the California tiger salamander. Proposed Project Activities La Laguna Los Alamos, LLC, has applied for a permit for incidental take of the California tiger salamander. The take would occur in association with installation and operation of a vineyard, cultivation of berries, other agricultural development that involves land-clearing and/or ripping, plowing and other soil cultivation techniques, and/or construction of a residential development that includes one singlefamily residence. The project site includes approximately 29 acres of suitable upland habitat for the California tiger salamander. The Service has designated these 29 acres as critical habitat for the Santa Barbara County DPS of the California tiger salamander. The HCP includes avoidance and minimization measures for the covered species and mitigation for unavoidable loss of suitable upland habitat through establishment of a conservation easement. Mitigation for unavoidable take of the species consists of the permanent protection of 34 acres of designated critical habitat for the Santa Barbara County DPS of the California tiger salamander. Phillips 66 Company has applied for a permit for incidental take of the California tiger salamander.

DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

[Docket No. FR-6146-N-04]


Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records; Inventory Management 
System, Also Known as the Public and Indian Housing Information Center

AGENCY: Office of Public and Indian Housing, HUD.

ACTION: Notice of a modified system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Inventory Management System, also known as the Public and 
Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC) serves as a national 
repository of information related to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), 
HUD-assisted families, HUD-assisted properties, and other HUD programs 
for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of HUD 
rental housing assistance programs. In accordance with the Privacy Act 
of 1974, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of 
Public and Indian Housing (PIH) proposes to modify the system of 
records titled, Inventory Management System (IMS), also known as Public 
and Indian Housing Information Center (PIC), HUD/PIH.01. This system of 
records allows the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office 
of Public and Indian Housing to collect and maintain records on 
individuals and organizations administering, participating in, or 
potentially affected by, housing assistance programs administered by 
HUD. This proposed modification of the IMS/PIC system would allow the 
system to contain additional categories of records and types of 
individuals. Specifically, IMS/PIC will store information about 
applicants for disaster recovery assistance from the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency (FEMA), provided pursuant to a computer matching 
agreement. Storing these records will enable HUD to aid individuals 
affected by natural disasters and prevent improper payments.

DATES: Comments are due on April 24, 2019. Unless comments are received 
that warrant a revision, this modification will become effective on 
April 24, 2019.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by docket number and 
title, by one of the following methods:
    Federal e-Rulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the 
instructions provided on that site to submit comments electronically.
    Fax: 202-619-8365.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The existing system known as the Inventory 
Management System/Public and Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/
PIC), HUD/PIH.01, is being updated to include additional categories of 
records and individuals and to permit the storage of information shared 
by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This update also 
reorganizes the routine uses, eliminates some routine uses that are 
already identified in HUD's Routine Use Inventory Notice and allows 
disclosure to state, local, and tribal governments to ensure effective 
and non-duplicative delivery of disaster recovery aid.

System Name and Number:

    Inventory Management System, Also Known as Public and Indian 
Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC), HUD/PIH.01.

Center, 550 12th Street SW, Suite 100, Washington, DC 20410. 202-475-
7949.

Authority for Maintenance of the System:
    The U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 1437; Title VI 
of the Civil Rights Act of 1962 (42 U.S.C. 2000d); The Fair Housing Act 
(42 U.S.C. 3601-3619); The Housing Community Development Act of 1981, 
Public Law 97-35, 85 stat., 348,408; and The Housing and Community 
Development Act of 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3543.

Purpose(s) of the System:
    IMS/PIC serves as a national repository of information related to 
Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), Tribally Designated Housing Entities 
(TDHE), HUD-assisted families, HUD-assisted properties, and other HUD 
programs, for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the 
effectiveness of PIH rental housing assistance programs. IMS/PIC allows 
PHAs, TDHEs, and their-hired management agents to electronically submit 
information to HUD that is related to the administration of HUD's PIH 
programs. It collects data for PIH operations, including data submitted 
via the internet from HUD's field offices, and accurately tracks 
activities and processes. IMS/PIC also helps to increase sharing of 
information throughout PIH and HUD, which improves staff awareness of 
activities related to the administration of HUD-subsidized housing 
programs. IMS/PIC is a flexible, scalable, internet-based integrated 
system, which enables PHA and TDHE users, and HUD personnel to access a 
common database via their web browser. IMS/PIC aids HUD and entities 
that administer HUD's assisted housing programs in: (a) Increasing the 
effective distribution of rental assistance to individuals that meet 
the requirements of federal rental assistance programs; (b) detecting 
abuses in assisted housing programs; (c) taking administrative or legal 
actions to resolve past and current abuses of assisted housing 
programs; (d) monitoring compliance with HUD program requirements; (e) 
deterring abuses by verifying the employment and income of tenants at 
the time of annual and interim reexaminations of family income and 
composition via the PIH Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system; 
(f) evaluating program effectiveness; (g) improving PHA and TDHE IMS/
PIC reporting rates; (h) forecasting budgets; (i) controlling funds; 
(j) updating tenant information; and (k) updating building and unit 
data.
