Needs and Uses: The LUCA Program was developed by the U.S. Census Bureau to meet the requirements of the Census Address List Improvement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-430. Under the voluntary LUCA Program, participating governments may review the Census Bureau's confidential list of individual living quarters addresses and provide to the Census Bureau address additions, corrections, deletions, and/or the identification of corrected address counts for census blocks; street and Start Printed Page 33202street attribute updates; and legal boundary updates. Governments electing to participate in the LUCA program also provide program contact information, certification of their agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Census Bureau address information, responses regarding their physical and information technology security capabilities, program option and product media preference information, shipment inventory information, and certification of their return/destruction of materials containing confidential data. The program will be available to tribal, state, and local governments, and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico (or their designated representatives) in areas for which the Census Bureau performs a precensus address canvassing operation (excluded are sparsely settled areas in the states of Alaska and Maine). The LUCA program includes federally recognized American Indian tribes with reservations and/or off-reservation trust lands, states, and general-purpose local governments, such as cities and townships, for which the Census Bureau reports data. This information collection will occur between August 2007 and April 2008.
The information to be collected in the LUCA Program is essential to the mission of the Census Bureau and will directly contribute to the successful outcome of Census 2010. The Census Bureau will use the LUCA program to help develop the housing unit and group quarters (e.g., college dormitory, nursing home, correctional facility, etc.) address information that it will need to conduct the 2010 Decennial Census. Because tribal, state, and local governments have current knowledge of and data about where housing growth and change are occurring in their jurisdictions, their input into the overall development of the address list for the census makes a vital contribution.
The Census Bureau requests expedited OMB approval of the LUCA Program by July 15, 2007.
Affected Public: State, local and Tribal governments.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Section 16.
