Notice and request for comments.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves 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. The information to be collected will be used to certify that a displaced person is lawfully present in the United States as required by Public Law 105-117 and 49 CFR 24.208. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.
