Title: Guidelines for Designating Biobased Products for Federal Procurement. OMB Control Number: 0570–0073. Expiration Date of Approval: April 30, 2021. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The USDA BioPreferred Program provides that qualifying biobased products that fall under product categories (generic groups of biobased products) that have been designated for preferred procurement by rule making are required to be purchased by Federal agencies in lieu of their fossil energy-based counterparts, with certain limited exceptions. Further, USDA is required by section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as amended by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 and the Agricultural Act of 2014, and the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, to provide certain information on qualified biobased products to Federal agencies. To meet these statutory requirements, USDA will gather that information from manufacturers and vendors of biobased products. The information sought by USDA can be transmitted electronically using the website http://www.biopreferred.gov. If for any reason the requested information cannot be electronically transmitted, USDA will provide technical assistance to support the transmission of information to USDA. The information collected will enable USDA to meet statutory information requirements that will then permit USDA to designate product categories for preferred procurement under the BioPreferred Program. Once product categories are designated, manufacturers and vendors of qualifying biobased products that fall under these designated product categories will benefit from preferred procurement by Federal agencies. This collection was previously approved under 0503–0011, and on February 4, 2021, was transferred to Rural VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:07 Feb 18, 2021 Jkt 253001 Development and assigned OMB Control No. 0570–0073. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 40 hours per response. Respondents: Manufacturers and vendors of biobased products. Participation is entirely voluntary. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 220. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: One per manufacturer or vendor. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 8,800 hours, one time only. Manufacturers and vendors are only asked to respond once for each stand-alone product or product family. Therefore, there is no ongoing annual paperwork burden on respondents unless they wish to add additional stand-alone products or product families. Furthermore, their participation in the BioPreferred Program is entirely voluntary. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Kimble Brown, Innovation Center—Regulations Management Division, at (202) 720– 6780, Email: kimble.brown@ wdc.usda.gov. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

ACTION: Notice of proposed program and request for comments. AGENCY: This notice provides the Bureau of the Census’ (hereafter, Census Bureau’s) proposed criteria for defining urban areas based on the results of the 2020 Decennial Census. It also provides a description of the changes from the final criteria used for the 2010 Census. The Census Bureau is requesting public comment on these proposed criteria. The Census Bureau delineates urban areas after each decennial census by applying specified criteria to decennial census and other data. Since the 1950 Census, the Census Bureau has reviewed and revised these criteria, as necessary, for each decennial census in order to improve the classification of urban areas by taking advantage of newly available data and advancements in geographic information processing technology. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before May 20, 2021. ADDRESSES: Please direct all written comments on this proposed program via email at geo.urban@census.gov to Vincent Osier, Geographic Standards, Criteria, and Quality Branch, Geography Division, U.S. Census Bureau. Please note that paper comments cannot be reviewed due to limited building access caused by the COVID–19 pandemic. Phone: 301–763–1128. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information on this proposed program should be directed to Vincent Osier, Geographic Standards, Criteria, and Quality Branch, Geography Division, U.S. Census Bureau, via email at geo.urban@ census.gov. Phone: 301–763–1128. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10237 The Census Bureau’s urban area classification is fundamentally a delineation of geographical areas, identifying individual urban areas as well as the rural portion of the nation. The Census Bureau’s urban areas represent densely developed territory, and encompass residential, commercial, and other non-residential urban land uses. The boundaries of the urban areas have been defined primarily by using measures based on population counts and residential population density, and also by using measures based on criteria that account for non-residential urban land uses, such as commercial, industrial, transportation, and open space that are part of the urban landscape. Since the 1950 Census, when the Census Bureau first defined densely settled urbanized areas of 50,000 or more people, the urban area delineation process has addressed non-residential urban land uses through criteria designed to account for commercial enclaves, special land uses such as airports, and densely developed noncontiguous territory. In delineating urban areas, the Census Bureau does not take into account or attempt to meet the requirements of any nonstatistical uses of these areas or their associated data. Nonetheless, the Census Bureau recognizes that some federal and state agencies use the Census Bureau’s urban area classification for nonstatistical uses such as allocating program funds, setting program standards, and implementing aspects of their programs. The agencies that use the classification and data for such nonstatistical uses should be aware that the changes to the urban area criteria also might affect the implementation of their programs. In addition, the Census Bureau is not responsible for the use of its urban area classification in nonstatistical programs. If a federal, tribal, state, or local agency uses the urban area classification for nonstatistical purposes, it is that agency’s responsibility to ensure that the classification is appropriate for such use. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: (1) History Over the course of a century defining urban areas, the Census Bureau has introduced conceptual and methodological changes to ensure that the urban area classification keeps pace with changes in settlement patterns and with changes in theoretical and practical approaches to interpreting and understanding the definition of urban areas. Prior to the 1950 Census, the Census Bureau primarily defined ‘‘urban’’ as any population, housing, E:\FR\FM\19FEN1.SGM 19FEN1
