OMB Approval Number: 2506–0202. Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: 24 CFR part 58, ‘‘Environmental Review Procedures for Entities Assuming HUD Environmental Responsibilities’’ requires units of general local government receiving HUD assistance to maintain a written environmental review record for all projects receiving HUD funding documenting compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality, related federal environmental laws, executive orders, and authorities, and Part 58 procedure. Various laws that authorize this procedure are listed in 24 CFR 58.1(b). 24 CFR part 50, ‘‘Protection and Enhancement of Environmental Quality,’’ implements procedures for HUD to perform environmental reviews for projects where Part 58 is not permitted by law. Under Part 50, HUD staff complete the environmental review records, but they may use any information supplied by an applicant or contractor, provided HUD independently evaluates the information and is responsible for its accuracy and prepares the environmental finding. HEROS allows users to complete, store, and submit their environmental review records and documents online. HEROS is currently optional for Responsible Entity and other non-HUD users, who may continue to use paper-based environmental review formats. Respondents (i.e. affected public): The respondents are state, local, and tribal governments receiving HUD funding who are required to complete environmental reviews. Estimated Number of Respondents: 500 units of local, state, and tribal government. Estimated Number of Responses: 12,200. Frequency of Response: 25 per year per unit of government. Average Hours per Response: 45 minutes to 4 hours, depending on level of review. E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
