Agency Approval Number: 0607-0795.
Type of Request: Emergency submission.
Burden: 3,909,829 hours.
Number of Respondents: 19,780.
Average Hours per Response: 198.
Needs and Uses: The LUCA Program was developed by the U.S. Census
Bureau to meet the requirements of the Census Address List Improvement
Act of 1994, Public Law 103-430. Under the voluntary LUCA Program,
participating governments may review the Census Bureau's confidential
list of individual living quarters addresses and provide to the Census
Bureau address additions, corrections, deletions, and/or the
identification of corrected address counts for census blocks; street

[[Page 33202]]

street attribute updates; and legal boundary updates. Governments
electing to participate in the LUCA program also provide program
contact information, certification of their agreement to maintain the
confidentiality of the Census Bureau address information, responses
regarding their physical and information technology security
capabilities, program option and product media preference information,
shipment inventory information, and certification of their return/
destruction of materials containing confidential data. The program will
be available to tribal, state, and local governments, and the District
of Columbia and Puerto Rico (or their designated representatives) in
areas for which the Census Bureau performs a precensus address
canvassing operation (excluded are sparsely settled areas in the states
of Alaska and Maine). The LUCA program includes federally recognized
American Indian tribes with reservations and/or off-reservation trust
lands, states, and general-purpose local governments, such as cities
and townships, for which the Census Bureau reports data. This
information collection will occur between August 2007 and April 2008.
The information to be collected in the LUCA Program is essential to
the mission of the Census Bureau and will directly contribute to the
successful outcome of Census 2010. The Census Bureau will use the LUCA
program to help develop the housing unit and group quarters (e.g.,
college dormitory, nursing home, correctional facility, etc.) address
information that it will need to conduct the 2010 Decennial Census.
Because tribal, state, and local governments have current knowledge of
and data about where housing growth and change are occurring in their
jurisdictions, their input into the overall development of the address
list for the census makes a vital contribution.
The Census Bureau requests expedited OMB approval of the LUCA
Program by July 15, 2007.
Affected Public: State, local and Tribal governments.
Frequency: One-time.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Section 16.
