1. Application Packets for Real Property for Public Health Purposes—0937-0191—Revision
The Department of Health and Human Services administers a program to convey or lease surplus real property to States and their political subdivisions and instrumentalities, to tax-supported institutions, and to nonprofit institutions to be used for health purposes. State and local governments and nonprofit organizations use these applications to apply for excess/surplus, underutilized/unutilized and off-site Government real property. Information in the applications is used to determine eligibility to purchase, lease, or use property under the provisions of the surplus property program. The application instructions for the homeless or public health purposes are being revised to clarify some of the questions which will assist reviewers in making more informed determinations. No changes are being proposed for the environmental information form used to evaluate potential environmental effects of a proposal as required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. Respondents: State, local or tribal governments; not-for-profit institutions; Total Number of Respondents: 32 per calendar year; Number of Responses per Respondent: one response per request; Average Burden per Response: 200 hours; Estimated Annual Burden: 6,400 hours.Start Printed Page 7765
