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. sections 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 law 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.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 11,775 hours.

ADDRESSES: All written comments must refer to the docket number that 
appears at the top of this document and be submitted to the Office of
