Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Fire Management Assistance Grant Program
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will submit the information collection abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance in accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The submission will describe the nature of the information collection, the categories of respondents, the estimated burden (i.e., the time, effort and resources used by respondents to respond) and cost, and the actual data collection instruments FEMA will use. FEMA is publishing this notice to correct a misstatement in a previous notice that this collection was a reinstatement, with change, of a currently approved information collection. This collection is actually being submitted to the Office of Management of Budget for review and clearance as an extension, without change, of a currently approved collection.

Applicants will be considered for one of ten vacancies on the TMAC. Appointments will be for terms beginning October 1, 2018, and lasting two years.
