SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Department of Transportation (DOT) provides 
notice that it will submit an information collection requests (ICR) to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for emergency approval of a 
proposed information collection. Upon receiving the requested six-month 
emergency approval by OMB, the Office of the Secretary of 
Transportation (OST) will follow the normal PRA procedures to obtain 
extended approval for this proposed information collection. The 
collection of information is necessary in order to receive applications 
for grant funds pursuant to Section 1105 of the Fixing America's 
Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015, which was signed into law on 
December 4, 2015. Section 1105 establishes a new program for OST to 
provide Supplemental Discretionary Grants for a Nationally Significant 
Freight and Highway Projects (NSFHP) program. The Department will also 
refer to NSFHP grants as Fostering Advancements in Shipping and 
Transportation for the Long-term Achievement of National Efficiencies 
(FASTLANE) grants. The FAST Act provides specific deadlines for this 
program, including a statutory 60-day Congressional notification 
requirement, which is no later than July 30, 2016. In order to ensure 
that the NSFHP grants are awarded in an expeditious manner and in the 
timeframes established by the FAST Act, the Department requests 
approval of an information collection using OMB's emergency processing 
system to meet Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) requirements.
    Information related to this ICR, including applicable supporting 
documentation may be obtained by contacting the NSFHP program manager 
via email at NSFHP@dot.gov.
