Abstract: The National Estuary Program (NEP) involves collecting information from the state or local agency or nongovernmental organizations that receive funds under Sec. 320 of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The regulation requiring this information is found at 40 CFR part 35. Prospective grant recipients seek funding to develop or oversee and coordinate implementation of Comprehensive Conservation Management Plans (CCMPs) for estuaries of national significance. In order to receive funds, grantees must submit an annual workplan to EPA which are used to track performance of each of the 28 estuary programs currently in the NEP. EPA provides funding to NEPs to support long-term implementation of CCMPs if such programs pass a program evaluation process. The primary purpose of the program evaluation process is to help EPA determine whether the 28 programs included in the National Estuary Program (NEP) are making adequate progress implementing their CCMPs and PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 therefore merit continued funding under Sec. 320 of the Clean Water Act. EPA also requests that each of the 28 NEPs receiving Sec. 320 funds report information that can be used in the GPRA reporting process. This reporting is done on an annual basis and is used to show environmental results that are being achieved within the overall National Estuary Program. This information is ultimately submitted to Congress along with GPRA information from other EPA programs. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are those state or local agencies or nongovernmental organizations in the National Estuary Program (NEP) who receive grants under Section 320 of the Clean Water Act. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit (Section 320 of the Clean Water Act). Estimated number of respondents: 28 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 5,600 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $314,138 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: There is likely a decrease in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to program evaluations taking place for only two years, compared to three years in the currently approved ICR. Note that these estimates will be updated in the final FR Notice.
