The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Title: Economic Analysis of Shoreline Treatment Options for Coastal New Hampshire.

Type of Request: Regular (new collection).
Number of Respondents: 4,633.
Average Hours per Response: 0.27.
Burden Hours: 1,248.
Needs and Uses: This request is for a pretest of a new data collection to benefit the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Office of Coastal Management (OCM), and decision-makers on the state and local level in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Coastal Program (NHCP) has prioritized living shoreline assessment and implementation in its five-year strategy to enhance coastal management (309 Strategy, 2015) and set a long-term goal to develop a Coastal Shoreline Management Plan (CSMP) for New Hampshire. NOAA will collect social, economic, and behavioral data pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA).
Questions will explore such issues as familiarity with weather and climate effects and adaptation methods, place attachment, and opinions on shoreline treatment options. The final collection will support the development of a CSMP for New Hampshire, provide information to help inform local coastal zone management and planning, and establish a baseline for future monitoring of NOAA's success in meeting its mandates and obligations.
Affected Public: Individuals and households.
Frequency: One time.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
