D–SNAP is a program that is separate from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and is conducted for a specific period of time. In order for a State to request to operate a D–SNAP, an affected area in the State must have received a Presidential Declaration of ‘‘Major Disaster’’ with Individual Assistance. Need and Use of the Information: This information collection concerns information obtained from State agencies seeking to operate D–SNAP. A State agency request to operate a D– SNAP must contain the following information: Description of incident; geographic area; application period; benefit period; eligibility criteria; ongoing household eligibility; affected population; electronic benefit card issuance process; logistical plans for Disaster SNAP rollout; staffing; public information outreach; duplicate participation check process; fraud prevention strategies; and employee application procedures. The Food and Nutrition Service reviews the request to ensure that all the necessary requirements to conduct a D–SNAP are met. If this collection is not conducted, D–SNAP would not be available to help meet the nutritional needs of disaster victims. Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government.

    Title: Special Need Request Under the Plant Protection Act.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0291.
    Summary of Collection: The Plant Protection Act (PPA) (7 U.S.C. 
7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the 
importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, 
and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the 
United States or their dissemination within the United States. This 
authority has been delegated to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection 
Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which 
administers regulations to implement the PPA. Regulations governing the 
interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles are 
contained in 7 CFR part 301, ``Domestic Quarantine Notices.'' These 
regulations in ``Subpart-Preemption and Special Need Requests'' allow 
States or political subdivisions of States to request approval from 
APHIS to impose prohibitions or restrictions on the movement in 
interstate commerce of specific articles that pose a plant health risk 
that are in addition to the prohibitions and restrictions imposed by 
APHIS.
    Need and Use of the Information: APHIS believes that specific 
information--such as a pest data detection survey with a pest risk 
analysis that shows that a pest is not present in a State, or if 
already present, the current distribution in the State, and that the 
pest would harm or injure the environment and/or agricultural resources 
of the State or political subdivision--is needed and would be 
considered along with more general information available to APHIS for 
the Administrator to be able to determine whether to grant or deny a 
request for a special need exemption. The administrator's determination 
would be based upon his or her review of the information submitted by 
the State or political subdivision in support of its request and would 
consider any comments received. If this information was not collected 
or collected less frequently, it would create vulnerabilities which 
would cripple APHIS' ability to prevent the introduction or spread of 
plant pests and diseases in the United States.
    Description of Respondents: State, Local or Tribal Government.
    Number of Respondents: 1.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion.
    Total Burden Hours: 160.
