Title: Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Regulations for Federal and Federally Assisted Programs.
OMB Control #: 2105-0508
Background: This program implements 42 U.S.C. 4602, concerning acquisition of real property and relocation assistance for displaced persons for Federal and federally-assisted programs. It prohibits the provision of relocation assistance and payments to persons not legally in the United States (with certain exceptions). The information collected consists of a certification of residency status from affected persons to establish eligibility for relocation assistance and payments. Displacing agencies will require each person who is to be displaced by a Federal or federally-assisted project, as a condition of eligibility for relocation payments or advisory assistance, to certify that he or she is lawfully present in the United States.
Respondents: Federal agencies, State highway agencies, local government highway agencies, and airport sponsors receiving financial assistance for expenditures of Federal funds on acquisition and relocation payments and required services to displaced persons.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,460 for file maintenance and 52 state highway agencies for statistical reports.
