Calculating Small Area FMRs Using Rent Distributions HUD has developed guidance on how to provide data-supported comments on Small Area FMRs using HUD’s special tabulations of the distribution of gross rents by unit bedroom count for ZIP Code Tabulation Areas. This guidance is available at https://www.huduser.gov/ portal/datasets/fmr.html in the FY 2022 FMR section under the ‘‘Documents’’ tab and should be used by interested parties in commenting on whether or not the level of Small Area FMRs are too high or too low (i.e., Small Area FMRs that are larger than the gross rent necessary to make 40 percent of the units accessible for an individual zip code or that are smaller than the gross rent necessary to make 40 percent of the units accessible for a given zip code). HUD will post revised Small Area FMRs after confirming commenters’ calculations. VI. Environmental Impact This Notice involves the establishment of FMR schedules, which do not constitute a development decision affecting the physical condition of specific project areas or building sites. Accordingly, under 24 CFR 50.19(c)(6), this Notice is categorically excluded from environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321). Accordingly, the Fair Market Rent Schedules, which will not be codified in 24 CFR part 888, are available at https:// www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/ fmr.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document provides notice that the BLM EYDO, Ely, Nevada, has published a Final EIS for the Robinson Mine Plan of Operations Amendment project. The Robinson Mine is an 8,887-acre copper DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43267 mining operation adjacent to Ruth, Nevada, seven miles west of Ely, Nevada, via U.S. Route 50. KGHM Robinson Nevada Mining Company (KGHM Robinson) is proposing additional development at the Robinson Mine to extend mine life approximately four additional years beyond its currently anticipated permanent closure in 2024. To accomplish this, the company is proposing renewed mining in the eastern portions of its privately-owned Liberty Pit and an authorization by the BLM to access and develop two specific areas of nearby BLM-managed public land on which to dispose newly generated waste rock. Under the BLM Preferred Alternative, KGHM Robinson would be permitted to develop approximately 260 acres of BLM-managed lands immediately south of the Robinson Mine to serve as the King Waste Rock Dump. This alternative would also include renewed dewatering and expanded mining operations in the eastern portions of KGHM Robinson’s privately owned Liberty Pit area as well as approval to develop approximately 545 acres of BLM-managed land and 94 acres of private land adjacent to the Giroux Wash Tailings Storage Facility (TSF). These areas would be used for obtaining borrow material for the previously approved increase in height of the TSF main impoundment and perimeter dams, as well as for growth media (i.e., topsoil) storage for final reclamation. Approval of this alternative would result in an additional 793 acres of new disturbance on BLM-managed lands as well as disturbance on approximately 170 acres of KGHM Robinson-owned private lands, for a total of 963 acres of new surface disturbance. Active life of the Robinson Mine would be extended to 2028. The resource impacts for Alternative B were considered the most environmentally preferred when compared to impacts associated with cultural resources, geochemistry and groundwater, waste rock dump construction, and Greater sage-grouse habitat under other alternatives. Under the No Action Alternative (Alternative A) the BLM would not approve the 2019 Robinson Mine Plan of Operations Amendment as written. Although KGHM Robinson could continue mining on its own private lands, no additional expansion onto BLM-managed public lands would be permitted. Without additional areas on which to dispose waste rock generated by continued mining, or the ability to obtain substantial additional volumes of soil to use in increasing the height of the primary impoundment and perimeter E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1
