SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs is currently in the process of 
revising the regulations governing the Indian Reservations Roads (IRR) 
program. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on 
December 19, 2014 (79 FR 76192), which will update the Indian 
Reservation Roads program to the Tribal Transportation Program. The 
request for extension for this information collection request do not 
include the suggestions and feedback on the proposed regulations, but 
instead will allow current participants to submit information required 
under the current regulations, pending the finalization and effective 
date of any revisions. For this reason, the BIA is requesting an 
extension without change of the approval for the information collection 
conducted under 25 CFR part 170.
    This collection allows Federally recognized tribal governments to 
participate in the Indian Reservation Roads (IRR) program as defined in 
25 U.S.C. 202. The information collection determines the allocation of 
the IRR program funds to Indian tribes as described in 25 U.S.C. 
202(b).

II. Request for Comments

    The BIA requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) 
The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance 
of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including 
the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before 
including your address, phone number, email address or other personal 
identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
