    Title: 49 U.S.C. 5308--Clean Fuels Grant Program (OMB Number: 2132-
NEW).
    Background: The Section 5308 Clean Fuels Grant Program was 
initiated as a formula program under the Transportation Equity Act for 
the 21st Century (TEA-21) in June 1998. The program was reauthorized in 
August 2005 under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient 
Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) as a grant 
program. The program supports the development and deployment of clean 
fuel and advanced propulsion technologies for transit buses by 
providing funds for clean fuel vehicles and facilities. To meet program 
oversight responsibilities, FTA needs information on the operations and 
performance of clean fuel technology buses to help assess the 
reliability, benefits and costs of these technologies compared to 
conventional vehicle technologies.
    Respondents: State and local government and public transportation 
authorities located in areas designated as non-attainment or 
maintenance for ozone or carbon monoxide.
    Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: Approximately 45.6 hours 
for each respondent.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,644 hours.
    Frequency: Semi-annual.

    Issued: May 2, 2011.

Associate Administrator for Administration.
