Type of Request: New.

Number of Respondents: 15.

Responses per Respondent: 1.

Annual Responses: 15.

Average Burden per Response: 3.33 hours.

Annual Burden Hours: 50.

Needs and Uses: The Preliminary Application information collection requirement is necessary to (1) validate the eligibility of the prospective borrower and the proposed project, (2) perform a preliminary creditworthiness assessment, (3) perform a preliminary engineering and environmental feasibility assessment, and (4) evaluate the project against the selection criteria and identify which projects U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will invite to submit applications. The Preliminary Application addresses the CWIFP eligibility criteria, CWIFP selection criteria, and identifies other specific information that must be provided to USACE to be considered for credit assistance. The Preliminary Application provides USACE with sufficient information to make a project selection and invite prospective borrowers to submit applications. Based on evaluation of the Preliminary Application, USACE will invite to submit an Application only those eligible projects that it expects to proceed to closing. Only those entities who are invited by USACE to submit an Application should proceed with the Application process. The Application provides USACE with information to assess the creditworthiness of both the applicant and project, identify the project's engineering and financial risk, negotiate the terms and conditions of the credit assistance, and calculate the amount of budget authority that will be needed to fund the project(s).

Affected Public: Individuals or households.
