SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: FHWA Environmental Excellence Awards

use FHWA funding sources to go beyond environmental compliance and 
achieve environmental excellence. The Environmental Excellence Awards 
also

recognize partners, projects, and processes that exemplify innovation 
and commitment to the human environment, and organization and process 
innovation. Awardees must make an outstanding contribution that goes 
beyond traditional transportation projects and that encourages 
environmental stewardship and partnerships to achieve a truly multi-
faceted, environmentally sensitive transportation solution.
    Award: Anyone can nominate a project, process, person or group that 
has used FHWA funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to 
transportation and the environment. The nominator is responsible for 
submitting an application via the FHWA Environmental Excellence Awards 
Web site that gives a summary of the outstanding accomplishments of the 
entry. The collected information will be used by FHWA to evaluate the 
project, showcase environmental excellence, and enhance the public's 
knowledge of environmental stewardship in the planning and project 
development process. Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges 
from varying backgrounds. It is anticipated that awards will be given 
every 2 years. The winners are presented plaques at an awards ceremony.
    Respondents: Anyone who has used FHWA funding sources in the 50 
States, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
    Frequency: The information will be collected biennially.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 8 hours per respondent per

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: It is expected that the 
respondents will complete approximately 150 applications for an 
estimated total of 1200 annual burden hours.

usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that 
the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic 
technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. 
The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request 
for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
