(5) Collaboratively collect and analyze evaluation test plan data; and (6) Collaboratively develop a final report documenting the methodologies, findings, conclusions, and recommendations of this CRADA work. The Coast Guard reserves the right to select for CRADA participants all, some, or no proposals submitted for this CRADA. The Coast Guard will provide no funding for reimbursement of proposal development costs. Proposals and any other material submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are expected to be unclassified and have no more than five single-sided pages (excluding cover page, DD 1494, JF–12, etc.). The Coast Guard will select proposals at its sole discretion on the basis of: (1) How well they communicate an understanding of, and ability to meet, the proposed CRADA’s goal; and (2) How well they address the following criteria: (a) Technical capability to support the non-Federal party contributions described; and (b) Resources available for supporting the non-Federal party contributions described. Currently, the Coast Guard is considering Teledyne FLIR, Inc. for participation in this CRADA, because they have a solution in place for providing E.O./IR target auto classification.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Pub. L. 93– 288) (the Stafford Act), as amended, is the legal basis for FEMA to provide financial assistance and services to individuals who apply for disaster assistance benefits in the event of a Federally-declared disaster. Regulations in Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Subpart D, ‘‘Federal Assistance to Individuals and Households,’’ implement the policy and procedures set forth in section 408 of the Stafford Act. This program provides financial assistance and, if necessary, direct assistance to eligible individuals and households who, as a direct result of a major disaster, have necessary expenses and serious needs that are unable to be met through other means. Individuals and households may apply for assistance (Registration Intake) under the Individuals and Households Program (IHP) in person, via telephone, or internet. FEMA provides financial assistance under the Other Needs Assistance provision of the IHP to individuals or households affected by a major disaster to meet disaster-related funeral expenses under Section 408(e)(1) of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act), Public Law 93–288, as amended. Historically, the agency has utilized a combination of public and commercial validation of ownership and or occupancy, which impacts eligibility for Housing Assistance and some forms of Other Needs Assistance. This update applies to the proposed expansion of the acceptable documentation applicants can submit to FEMA to verify the occupancy and/or ownership of their primary residence and establish eligibility for disaster assistance. This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on November 5, 2021, at 86 FR 61283 with a 60-day public comment period. No comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to notify the public that FEMA will submit the information collection abstracted below E:\FR\FM\22FEN1.SGM 22FEN1

    Abstract: Imported merchandise which is to remain in the customs

The general requirements for all TIB categories and specific rules for 
certain types of goods are set forth the notes to Chapter 98 (HTSUS), 
and in the U.S. notes, article provisions, and rates of duty columns to 
subchapter XIII. Consistent with 19 CFR 10.37, when this time period is 
not sufficient, importers and brokers may request an extension by 
submitting a CBP Form 3173, ``Application for Extension of Bond for 
Temporary Importation'', either electronically or manually, to the 
Center Director. The period of time may be extended for not more than 
two further periods of 1 year each, or such shorter periods as may be 
appropriate. An Extension may be granted by CBP, upon written or 
electronic submission of a CBP Form 3173, provided that the articles 
have not been exported or destroyed before receipt of the application, 
and liquidated damages have not been assessed under the bond before 
receipt of the application. TIB extensions requested by the Trade will 
automatically be accepted in the Automated Customs Environment (ACE), 
but CBP can deny an extension as necessary. CBP Form 3173 is provided

participants are able to submit electronic images of a specific set of 
CBP and Participating Government Agency (PGA) forms and supporting 
information to CBP. Specifically, importers, and brokers, are allowed 
to submit official CBP documents and specified PGA forms via the 
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Although the first phase of the DIS 
test was limited to certain CBP and PGA forms, the DIS Guidelines were 
updated over time to include various entry summary documents.
    This information collection is necessary to ensure compliance with 
19 CFR 10.37 and the DIS guidance.
    Proposed Change:
    CBP Form 3173 is considered an entry summary document, and ACE 
participants will be able to submit the CBP Form 3173 electronically 
through the Document Image System (DIS).
    Type of Information Collection: Application for Extension of Bond
