Title: Flood Mitigation Assistance—Flood Mitigation Plan.

OMB Number: 1660-0075.

Form Numbers: None.

Abstract: States and communities must have a FEMA approved flood mitigation plan before FEMA will award project grant assistance to a State or community applicant. FEMA and the States will use local community flood mitigation plans to identify the need to provide technical assistance to local governments lacking sufficient resources to complete FEMA grant applications. Secondly, and more importantly, the local or State government that develops the plan will use it to make land use decisions, implement zoning changes, encourage smarter development, and implement projects to reduce the impact of flooding on insurable structures.

Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Government.

Number of Respondents: 240.

Estimated Time per Respondent: 2080 hours to develop a new Mitigation Plan and 8 hours to review submitted plans.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 250,560.

Frequency of Response: Once.

Comments: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at OMB, Attention: Desk Officer for the Department of Homeland Security/FEMA, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, or facsimile number (202) 395-7285.
