Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The primary objective of NRCS is to work in partnership with the American people and the farming and ranching community to protect, conserve and sustain our nation’s natural resources on privately owned land. The purpose of the LongTerm Contracting information collection is to allow for programs to provide Federal technical and financial cost-sharing assistance through long term contracts to eligible producers, landowners, and entities. These long-term contracts provide for making land use changes and installing conservation measures and practices to protect, conserve, develop, and use the soil, water, and related natural resources on private lands. Under the terms of the agreement, the participant agrees to apply, or arrange to apply, the conservation treatment specified in the conservation E:\FR\FM\25MRN1.SGM 25MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 56 / Thursday, March 25, 2021 / Notices plan. In return for this agreement, Federal financial assistance payments are made to the land user, or third party, upon successful application of the conservation treatment. Additionally, NRCS purchases easements for the longterm protection of the property and provides for the protection and management of the property for the life of the easement. The information collected through this package is used by NRCS to ensure the proper use of program funds. The conservation programs in this information collection that are subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act are listed in Table A. No changes or adjustments are proposed at 15885 this time, this notice is limited to the request for an extension of the currently approved information collection package used by NRCS for Long-Term Contracting for the programs listed in Table A. Table B shows the burden for those programs subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. TABLE A—CONSERVATION PROGRAMS SUBJECT TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT Progr Description Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) (7 CFR part 701). Emergency Watershed Program (EWP) (7 CFR part 624). Healthy Forests Reserve Program (HFRP) (7 CFR part 625). Resource Conservation and Development Program (RC&D). Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Program (WRFPP) (7 CFR part 622). USDA Farm Service Agency’s ECP provides emergency funding and technical assistance for farmers and ranchers to rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters and for carrying out emergency water conservation measures in periods of severe drought. Funding for ECP is appropriated by Congress. The EWP was initiated in 1950 and is administered by NRCS. It provides technical and financial assistance to local institutions for the removal of storm and flood debris from stream channels and for the restoration of stream channels and levees to reduce the threat to life and property. The program also provides for establishing permanent easements in floodplains with private landowners. HFRP is a voluntary program established for the purpose of restoring and enhancing forest ecosystems to: (1) Promote the recovery of threatened and endangered species; (2) improve biodiversity; and (3) enhance carbon sequestration. The HFRP was signed into law as part of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 and amended in 2008. The Agricultural Act of 2014 made minor changes to HFRP land eligibility and funding. The RC&D was initiated in 1962 and was administered by NRCS. Through this program, NRCS assisted multi-county areas in enhancing conservation, water quality, wildlife habitat, recreation, and rural development. The R&D Program provided technical and limited financial assistance for the planning and installation of approved projects. WPFPP was initiated in 1954 and is administered by NRCS. It assists State and local units of government in flood prevention, watershed protection, and water management. Part of this effort involves the establishment of conservation practices on private lands to reduce erosion, sedimentation, and runoff.
