Title: Implementation of Coastal Barrier Legislation.

Type of information collection: Extension, without change, of a currently approved information collection.

Abstract: When an application for flood insurance is submitted for buildings located in a Coastal Barrier Resource System (CBRS) or an otherwise protected area, one of the following types of documentation must be submitted as evidence of eligibility: (a) Certification from a community official stating the building is not located in a designated CBRS area; (b) A legally valid building permit or certification from a community official stating that the start date of a building's construction preceded the date that the community was identified in the CBRS; or (c) Certification from the governmental body overseeing the area indicating that the building is used in a manner consistent with the purpose for which the area is protected.

Affected Public: Individuals or households; Businesses or other for profits; Not-for-profit institutions; Farms; and State, local or Tribal governments.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1600.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 400.

Estimated Cost: The estimated annual operations and maintenance costs for technical services is $1,600.00. There is no annual start-up or capital costs. The change in number of respondents since the 60 day Federal Register Notice (79 FR 12699 (March 6, 2014)) is based on an updated calculation of flood insurance applications received requiring this CBRS documentation. The estimated total annual burden hour and cost have been updated to reflect this adjusted estimated number of respondents.
