Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey gathers topographic data through the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high-quality light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories, as well as interferometric synthetic aperture radar (ifsar) data over Alaska. The implementation model for 3DEP is based on multi-agency partnership funding for topographic data acquisition, with the USGS acting in a lead program management role to facilitate planning and acquisition for the broader community, through the use of government contracts and partnership agreements. USGS issues cooperative agreements with partners to collect topographic data through an annual Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), which is a competitive solicitation issued to facilitate the cooperative collection of lidar and derived elevation data for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) . It has been included in the annual Catalog of Domestic Federal Assistance under USGS 15.8 17. Federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. USGS collects information from applicants about their proposed topographic data collection, cost sharing and then uses that information to determine grant awards. Title of Collection: Topographic Data Grants. OMB Control Number: 1028–0092. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 40. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 40. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 62 hours. E:\FR\FM\22JYN1.SGM 22JYN1
