Given the increasing complexity of interdisciplinary and interagency research, it is important for Federal agencies to manage awards in a similar fashion. The RPPR is used by agencies that support research and research-related activities for use in submission of progress reports. It is intended to replace other performance reporting formats currently in use by agencies. The RPPR does not change the performance reporting requirements specified in 2 CFR part 215 (OMB Circular A–110) and the Common Rule implementing OMB Circular A–102. Each category in the RPPR is a separate reporting component. Agencies will direct recipients to report on the one mandatory component (‘‘Accomplishments’’), and may direct them to report on optional components, as appropriate. Within a particular component, agencies may direct recipients to complete only specific questions, as not all questions within a given component may be relevant to all agencies. Agencies may develop an agency- or program-specific component, if necessary, to meet programmatic requirements, although agencies should minimize the degree to which they supplement the standard components. Such agency- or program specific requirements will require review and clearance by OMB. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0690–0032. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission, Request for an Extension (without change of a currently approved collection). Affected Public: State and Local governments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Economic Development Administration (EDA) leads the Federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy. Guided by the basic principle that sustainable economic development should be locally-driven, EDA works directly with communities and regions to help them build the capacity for economic development based on local business conditions and needs. The Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 (PWEDA) (42 U.S.C. 3121 et seq.) is EDA’s organic authority and is the primary legal authority under which EDA awards financial assistance. Under PWEDA, EDA provides financial assistance to both rural and urban distressed communities by fostering entrepreneurship, innovation, and productivity through investments in infrastructure development, capacity building, and business development in order to attract private capital E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1 28539 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 101 / Thursday, May 27, 2021 / Notices investments and new and better jobs to regions experiencing economic distress. Further information on EDA programs and financial assistance opportunities can be found at www.eda.gov. EDA must collect specific information from financial assistance applicants to evaluate whether proposed projects satisfy eligibility and programmatic requirements contained in PWEDA, EDA regulations at 13 CFR chapter III, and applicable Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs). The purpose of this notice is to seek comments from the public and other Federal agencies regarding EDA’s proposed revision and extension of the application materials under this information collection: Forms ED–900 (General Application (GA) for EDA Programs), ED–900B (Beneficiary Information Form), ED– 900C (EDA Application Supplement for Construction Programs), ED–900D (Requirements for Design and Engineering Assistance), ED–900E (Calculation of Estimated Relocation and Land Acquisition Expenses), and ED–900F (Additional EDA Assurances for Revolving Loan Fund Investments). EDA proposes to make clarifying edits to the following forms under this information collection: Forms ED–900 GA, ED–900B, ED–900C, ED–900D, ED– 900E, and ED–900F. The clarifying edits do not change the type or amount of information collected, and the clarifying edits will not impact the time burden for respondents to complete the forms. The clarifying edits include: (1) Reordering many of the questions in Form ED–900 GA to improve clarity and to assist applicants in completing the form in a way that can be easily evaluated by EDA; (2) Adding two new questions to Form ED–900 GA to gather improved project location information necessary for EDA to comply with new data and reporting requirements; (3) Removing duplicative questions across the forms under this information collection; (4) Modifying Form ED–900F to only collect assurances, removing questions regarding the proposed operation of a revolving loan fund (RLF), thus greatly simplifying the form for applicants; and (5) moving form instructions from the end of each form to accompany various questions throughout each form to improve the applicant experience. EDA does not propose to extend two existing forms under this information collection: Forms ED–900A (Additional EDA Assurances for Construction Or Non-Construction Investments and ED– 900P (Proposal for EDA Assistance). Form ED–900A is no longer necessary because the assurances collected in Form ED–900A are redundant with other materials, including other forms under this information collection and certifications collected by SAM.gov. Form ED–900P is no longer necessary because EDA has removed the requirement for a financial assistance applicant to submit a proposal prior to submitting a full application. By eliminating Forms ED–900A and ED– 900P, EDA will reduce the estimated time per response to this information collection. EDA estimates that an increase in the number of respondents to this information collection will outweigh the reduced time per response for this information collection and result in an increase in estimated burden hours for this information collection. The recently enacted American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (Pub. L. 117–2) appropriated $3,000,000,000 in supplemental funds to EDA to ‘‘prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus and for necessary expenses for responding to economic injury as a result of coronavirus.’’ In comparison, EDA was appropriated $346,000,000 under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. This supplemental funding will substantially increase the number of respondents applying for EDA financial II. Method of Collection EDA collects information from financial assistance applicants electronically through Grants.gov, or, in very rare instances, via email or paper submission. III.

(Pharmaceutical Products), Barceloneta, Puerto Rico AbbVie Ltd. (AbbVie), submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on May 19, 2021. AbbVie already has authority to produce pharmaceutical products within Subzone 7I. The current request would add a finished product and a foreign status material to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status material and specific finished product described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt AbbVie from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:29 May 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 the foreign-status materials/components noted below and in the existing scope of authority, AbbVie would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that applies to IMBRUVICA® capsules and tablets (duty-free). AbbVie would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The material sourced from abroad is Ibrutinib active pharmaceutical ingredient (duty rate 6.5%). The request indicates that Ibrutinib is subject to duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is July 6, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Economic Development Administration (EDA) leads the Federal 
economic development agenda by promoting innovation and 
competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and success in 
the worldwide economy. Guided by the basic principle that sustainable 
economic development should be locally-driven, EDA works directly with 
communities and regions to help them build the capacity for economic 
development based on local business conditions and needs. The Public 
Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 (PWEDA) (42 U.S.C. 3121 et 
seq.) is EDA's organic authority and is the primary legal authority 
under which EDA awards financial assistance. Under PWEDA, EDA provides 
financial assistance to both rural and urban distressed communities by 
fostering entrepreneurship, innovation, and productivity through 
investments in infrastructure development, capacity building, and 
business development in order to attract private capital

[[Page 28539]]

investments and new and better jobs to regions experiencing economic 
distress. Further information on EDA programs and financial assistance 
opportunities can be found at www.eda.gov.
    EDA must collect specific information from financial assistance 
applicants to evaluate whether proposed projects satisfy eligibility 
and programmatic requirements contained in PWEDA, EDA regulations at 13 
CFR chapter III, and applicable Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs). 
The purpose of this notice is to seek comments from the public and 
other Federal agencies regarding EDA's proposed revision and extension 
of the application materials under this information collection: Forms 
ED-900 (General Application (GA) for EDA Programs), ED-900B 
(Beneficiary Information Form), ED-900C (EDA Application Supplement for 
Construction Programs), ED-900D (Requirements for Design and 
Engineering Assistance), ED-900E (Calculation of Estimated Relocation 
and Land Acquisition Expenses), and ED-900F (Additional EDA Assurances 
for Revolving Loan Fund Investments).
    EDA proposes to make clarifying edits to the following forms under 
this information collection: Forms ED-900 GA, ED-900B, ED-900C, ED-
900D, ED-900E, and ED-900F. The clarifying edits do not change the type 
or amount of information collected, and the clarifying edits will not 
impact the time burden for respondents to complete the forms. The 
clarifying edits include: (1) Re-ordering many of the questions in Form 
ED-900 GA to improve clarity and to assist applicants in completing the 
form in a way that can be easily evaluated by EDA; (2) Adding two new 
questions to Form ED-900 GA to gather improved project location 
information necessary for EDA to comply with new data and reporting 
requirements; (3) Removing duplicative questions across the forms under 
this information collection; (4) Modifying Form ED-900F to only collect 
assurances, removing questions regarding the proposed operation of a 
revolving loan fund (RLF), thus greatly simplifying the form for 
applicants; and (5) moving form instructions from the end of each form 
to accompany various questions throughout each form to improve the 
applicant experience.
    EDA does not propose to extend two existing forms under this 
information collection: Forms ED-900A (Additional EDA Assurances for 
Construction Or Non-Construction Investments and ED-900P (Proposal for 
EDA Assistance). Form ED-900A is no longer necessary because the 
assurances collected in Form ED-900A are redundant with other 
materials, including other forms under this information collection and 
certifications collected by SAM.gov. Form ED-900P is no longer 
necessary because EDA has removed the requirement for a financial 
assistance applicant to submit a proposal prior to submitting a full 
application. By eliminating Forms ED-900A and ED-900P, EDA will reduce 
the estimated time per response to this information collection.
    EDA estimates that an increase in the number of respondents to this 
information collection will outweigh the reduced time per response for 
this information collection and result in an increase in estimated 
burden hours for this information collection. The recently enacted 
American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (Pub. L. 117-2) appropriated 
$3,000,000,000 in supplemental funds to EDA to ``prevent, prepare for, 
and respond to coronavirus and for necessary expenses for responding to 
economic injury as a result of coronavirus.'' In comparison, EDA was 
appropriated $346,000,000 under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2021. This supplemental funding will substantially increase the number 
of respondents applying for EDA financial assistance and therefore 
required to complete the information collection. Although the proposed 
revision and extension of the information collection will reduce the 
estimated amount of time required to complete the information 
collection, the substantially increased number of respondents to this 
information collection will result in an increase in burden hours for 
this information collection.
