Transportation Act that requires a
detailed accounting of the projects,
programs, and activities funded under
the national recreational boating safety
program provision of the Act be
published annually in the Federal
Register. This notice specifies the
funding amounts the Coast Guard has
committed, obligated, or expended
during fiscal year 2019, as of September

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background and Purpose
Since 1998, Congress has passed a
series of laws providing funding for
projects, programs, and activities
funded under the national recreational
boating safety program, which is
administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
For a detailed description of the
legislative history, please see the
Recreational Boating Safety Projects,
Programs, and Activities Funded Under
Provisions of the Fixing America’s
Surface Transportation Act; Fiscal Year
2016 Notice published in the Federal
Register on April 12, 2017 (82 FR
17671).
These funds are available to the
Secretary from the Sport Fish
Restoration and Boating Trust Fund
(Trust Fund) established under 26
U.S.C. 9504(a) for payment of Coast
Guard expenses for personnel and
activities directly related to
coordinating and carrying out the
national recreational boating safety
program. Amounts made available
under this subsection remain available
during the two succeeding fiscal years.
Any amount that is unexpended or
unobligated at the end of the 3-year
period during which it is available, shall
be withdrawn by the Secretary and
allocated to the States in addition to any
other amounts available for allocation in
the fiscal year in which they are
withdrawn or the following fiscal year.
Use of these funds requires
compliance with standard Federal
contracting rules with associated lead
and processing times resulting in a lag
time between available funds and
spending. The total amount of funding
transferred to the Coast Guard from the
Trust Fund, and committed, obligated,
and/or expended during fiscal year 2019
for each project is shown below.

Agency Information Collection
Activities: Submission for OMB
Review; Comment Request; Property
Acquisition and Relocation for Open
Space
AGENCY
: Federal Emergency
Management Agency, DHS.
ACTION
: Notice and request for
comments.
SUMMARY
: The Federal Emergency
Management Agency will submit the
information collection described below
to the Office of Management and Budget
for review and clearance in accordance
with the requirements of the Paperwork
Reduction Act of 1995. This information
collection concerns the property
acquisition and relocation for open
space process as part of the
administration of FEMA’s mitigation
grant programs, and the withdrawal of
three previously proposed forms (FEMA
Form 086–0–31a, FEMA Form 086–0–
31b, and FEMA Form 086–0–31c) from
the information collection included in
the initial 60-day public comment
period regarding the Severe Risk
Property Acquisition (SRPA) direct
grant to property owners for acquisition
and demolition of severe repetitive loss
structures. After reviewing all the
comments submitted, FEMA has
determined there is no need for SRPA
direct grant-related forms at this time.
At this time, FEMA has decided not to
implement the SRPA direct to property
owners grant.
DATES
: Comments must be submitted on
or before January 6, 2020.
ADDRESSES
: Submit written comments
on the proposed information collection
to the Office of Information and
Regulatory Affairs, Office of
Management and Budget. Comments
should be addressed to the Desk Officer
for the Department of Homeland
Security, Federal Emergency
Management Agency, and sent via
electronic mail to dhsdeskofficer@
omb.eop.gov.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT
:
Requests for additional information or
copies of the information collection
should be made to Jennie Orenstein,
Grants Policy Branch Chief, FIMA,

Management Division, email address:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Regulations at 44 CFR part 80 govern
property acquisitions for the creation of
open space under FEMA’s three hazard
mitigation assistance (HMA) grant
programs: The Pre-Disaster Mitigation
program (PDM) and Hazard Mitigation
Grant Program (HMGP), authorized
under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster
Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as
amended, 42 U.S.C. 5121–5207; and the
Flood Mitigation Assistance Program
(FMA) authorized under the National
Flood Insurance Act (NFIA) of 1968, as
amended, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.
Acquisition and relocation of property
for open space use is a popular
mitigation activity eligible under PDM,
HMGP, and FMA. These programs
require any property acquired with
FEMA funds to be deed restricted and
maintained as open space in perpetuity
to ensure against future risk from
hazards to life and property, and to
reduce the need for disaster assistance
or insurance payments for damages to
property. This proposed information
collection previously published in the
Federal Register on February 27, 2018,
at 83 FR 8493 with a 60-day public
comment period. The comment period
closed on April 30, 2018. FEMA
received 92 comments in response to
Information Collection 1660–0103,
including comments that express both
support and opposition to different
parts of the collection. Many comments
were similar, but they will be recorded
as 102 distinct comments since they
addressed multiple parts of the
collection. Of the 102 comments
received, 67 comments were opposed to
language in the three new forms
pertaining to the Severe Risk Property
Acquisition (SRPA) direct grants to
property owners that included an option
identified as ‘‘Pathway 2: Demolition of
Structure(s) Only, Property Owner(s)
Retains Ownership.’’ The Pathway
allowed property owners to build new
structures on the land after the existing
structures were acquired and
demolished by FEMA. A commitment to
use the property as open space in
perpetuity was not required. The new
structures were required to meet current
community flood management building
codes, which presumably would be to a
higher standard than the damaged
structure was built to. Mitigation would
