    Title: 49 U.S.C. 5310 and 5311--Capital Assistance Program for 
Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities and Nonurbanized Area 
Formula Program (OMB Number: 2132-0561)
    Background: The Capital Assistance Program for Elderly Persons and 
Persons with Disabilities provides financial assistance for the 
specialized transportation service needs of elderly persons and persons 
with disabilities. The program is administered by the States and may be 
used in all areas, urbanized, small urban, and rural. The Nonurbanized 
Area Formula Program provides financial assistance for the provision of 
public transportation services in nonurbanized areas and this program 
is also administered by the States. 49 U.S.C. 5310 and 5311 authorize 
FTA to review applications for federal financial assistance to 
determine eligibility and compliance with statutory and administrative 
requirements. Information collected during the application stage 
includes the project budget, which identifies funds requested for 
project implementation; a program of projects, which identifies 
subrecipients to be funded, amount of funding that each will receive, 
and a description of the projects to be funded; the project 
implementation plan; the State management plan; a list of annual 
certifications and assurances; and public hearings notice, 
certification and transcript. The applications must contain sufficient 
information to enable FTA to make the findings required by laws to 
enforce the program requirements. Information collected during the 
project management stage includes an annual financial report, an annual 
program status report, and pre-award and post-delivery audits. The 
annual financial report and program status report provide a basis for 
monitoring approved projects to ensure timely and appropriate 
expenditure of federal funds by grant recipients.
    Respondents: State and local governments, business or other for-
profit institutions, non-profit institutions, and small business 
organizations.
    Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 219 hours for each of the 
respondents.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 11,775 hours.
