Documentation (EID) (OMB No. 0915-0324) Revision.
    HRSA is requesting extension of the approval for the Environmental 
Information and Documentation (EID) checklist which consists of 
information that the agency is required to obtain to comply with the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). NEPA establishes the 
federal government's national policy for protection of the environment. 
HRSA has developed the EID for applicants of funding that would 
potentially impact the environment and to ensure that their decision-
making processes are consistent with NEPA. Applicants must provide 
information and assurance of compliance with NEPA on the EID checklist. 
The estimated annual burden is as follows:
