Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register on May 21, 2021 (86 FR 27561—0648–0718) and June 8, 2021 (86 FR 30444—0648–0472) during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. Agency: National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, Commerce. Title: NOAA Financial Assistance Performance Progress Reports. OMB Control Number: 0648–0718. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular submission [Revision of a currently approved information collection]. Number of Respondents: 445. Average Hours per Response: Performance Progress Reports: MDP, CRCP, RC Initial Report—10 hours each; RC Semi-Annual PPR—5.5 hours; RC Administrative Progress Reports: Initial—6 hours; Semi-Annual—2.75 hours; and Final—5.5 hours. Total Annual Burden Hours: 4,545. Needs and Uses: This is a request for revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. The revision requests approval to merge OMB Control Number 0648–0472 (NOAA Community-based Restoration Program Progress Reports) into 0648– 0718. Upon OMB approval, control number 0648–0472 will be discontinued. 0648–0718 is also being revised to add a Performance Progress Report for the Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) and revise the Marine Data Program form to add an optional marine debris removal data collection page. The title of this information collection will be changed from NOAA Marine Debris Program Performance Progress Report to NOAA Financial Assistance Performance Progress Reports to encompass all collections of information under the control number. This information collection assists the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the administration and evaluation of financial assistance awards made by the Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), the NOAA Restoration Center (NOAA RC), and NOAA Marine Debris Program. Every year each of these programs support a variety of initiatives specific to their individual authorizations and programmatic mandates. This support is made substantially through grants and cooperative agreements, the terms and conditions of which require regular PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM progress reporting and communication of project accomplishments to the agency. This information collection identifies what is to be provided in these reports, and aims to assist recipients in fulfilling their responsibilities in meeting interim and final progress report requirements. This information is also necessary for NOAA to effectively oversee the expenditure of public funds awarded through these programs, to ensure both costeffectiveness and programmatic goals are met. The NOAA RC provides technical and financial assistance to identify, develop, implement, and evaluate communitydriven habitat restoration projects. Awards are made as grants or cooperative agreements under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 2006, 16 U.S.C. 1891a and the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, 16 U.S.C. 661, as amended by the Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1970. The NOAA CRCP operates under authorization from the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000 (16 U.S.C. 6401 et seq.). This Act was enacted on December 14, 2000, to preserve, sustain and restore the condition of coral reef ecosystems; to promote the wise management and sustainable use of coral reef ecosystems to benefit local communities and the Nation; to develop sound scientific information on the condition of coral reef ecosystems and the threats to such ecosystems; to assist in the preservation of coral reefs by supporting conservation programs, including projects that involve affected local communities and nongovernmental organizations; to provide financial resources for those programs and projects; and to establish a formal mechanism for the collecting and allocating of monetary donations from the private sector to be used for coral reef conservation projects. The NOAA Marine Debris Program (MDP) supports national and international efforts to research, prevent, and reduce the impacts of marine debris. The MDP uses partnerships with state and local agencies, tribes, non-governmental organizations, academia, and industry to investigate and solve the problems that stem from marine debris through research, prevention, and reduction activities, in order to protect and conserve our nation’s marine environment and coastal economies, and to ensure navigation safety. In large part, these partnerships are made through grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, MOUs or are simply informal technical assistance arrangements.

ACTION: Notice; issuance of an incidental harassment authorization. AGENCY: In accordance with the regulations implementing the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) as amended, notification is given that NMFS has issued an incidental harassment authorization (IHA) to the Port of Alaska (POA) to incidentally harass, by Level B harassment and Level A harassment, marine mammals during pile driving associated with the relocation of the POA’s South Floating Dock (SFD) within Knik Arm, in upper Cook Inlet, Alaska. DATES: This Authorization is effective from August 27, 2021 through August 26, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Reny Tyson Moore, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, (301) 427–8401. Electronic copies of the application and supporting documents, as well as a list of the references cited in this document, may be obtained online at: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/permit/ incidental-take-authorizations-undermarine-mammal-protection-act. In case of problems accessing these documents, please call the contact listed above. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background The MMPA prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of marine mammals, with certain exceptions. Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (as delegated to NMFS) to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of an incidental take authorization may be provided to the public for review. Authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM 50057 taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s) and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for taking for subsistence uses (where relevant). Further, NMFS must prescribe the permissible methods of taking and other ‘‘means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact’’ on the affected species or stocks and their habitat, paying particular attention to rookeries, mating grounds, and areas of similar significance, and on the availability of the species or stocks for taking for certain subsistence uses (referred to in shorthand as ‘‘mitigation’’); and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of the takings are set forth. The definitions of all applicable MMPA statutory terms cited above are included in the relevant sections below. Summary of Request On October 2, 2020, NMFS received a request from the POA for an IHA to take marine mammals incidental to pile driving associated with the relocation of the SFD within Knik Arm in upper Cook Inlet, Alaska. Revised applications were submitted by the POA on December 15, 2020, January 29, 2021, February 5, 2021, and March 5, 2021 that addressed comments provided by NMFS. The application was deemed adequate and complete on March 17, 2021. Additional revised applications were submitted on March 26, 2021, which addressed typos, and May 14 2021, which adjusted transmission loss rates based on the final Petroleum Cement Terminal (PCT) Hydroacoustic Monitoring Report for activities completed in 2020 (Reyff et al., 2021). The POA requested, and NMFS has authorized, take of a small number of six species of marine mammals by Level B harassment and Level A harassment. Neither the POA nor NMFS expects serious injury or mortality to result from this activity, nor did NMFS authorize any. Therefore, an IHA is appropriate. NMFS previously issued IHAs to the POA for pile driving (73 FR 41318, July 18, 2008; 74 FR 35136, July 20, 2009; 81 FR 15048, March 21, 2016; and 85 FR 19294, April 06, 2020). The POA has complied with the requirements (e.g., mitigation, monitoring, and reporting) of all previous IHAs and information regarding their monitoring results may be found in the Effects of the Specified Activity on Marine Mammals and their Habitat and Estimated Take sections. Description of Specified Activity The POA is modernizing its marine terminals through the Port of Alaska Modernization Program (PAMP). One of 07SEN1
