ACTION:

Notice and request for comments.

SUMMARY:

Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. 3507) and 5 CFR 1320, Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements, the National Park Service invite public comments on eight proposed information collection requests (ICR) for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and Urban Park and Recreation Recovery (UPARR) grant programs.

1. LWCF Description and Notification (DNF) Form. The DNF is necessary to provide data input into the NPS Automated Project information system which provides timely data on projects funded over the life of the LWCF program.

2. LWCF Program Performance Report. As required by OMB Circular A-102, grantees must submit performance requirements which describe the status of the work required under the project scope.

3. LWCF Project Agreement and Amendment Form. The Project Agreement and Amendment forms set forth the obligations assumed by the State through its acceptance of Federal assistance under the LWCF Act and any special terms and conditions.

4. LWCF On-Site Inspection Report. The On-Site Inspection Reports are used to insure compliance by grantees with applicable Federal and program guidelines, and to insure the continued viability of the funded site.

5. LWCF Conversion of Use Provisions. To convert assisted sites to other than public outdoor recreation, LWCF project sponsors must provide relevant information necessary to comply with Section 6(f)(3) of the LWCF Act of 1965.

6. UPARR Project Performance Report. As required by OMB Circular A-102, grant recipients must submit performance reports which describe the status of the work required under the project scope.

8. UPARR Project Agreement and Amendment Form. The Project agreement and amendment forms set forth the obligations assumed by grant recipients through their acceptance of Federal Assistance under the UPARR Act and any special terms and conditions.
