Miscellaneous Actions
The annual number of responses is now 425,445, and the burden hours is now 49,385. The number of respondents stayed the same at 140,000. Activity related to ECP request, approvals, and payments has increased due to major storm systems that caused catastrophic damage across the nation, from 2018–2020. Hurricane Michael and Florence occurred in 2018, followed by the Midwest flooding’s in 2019. Multiple hurricanes and wildfires in 2020 all contribute to the increase in activity. Those increased activities caused the number of respondents increased by 126,197. The burden hours decreased by 21,950 due the activity related to BCAP has drastically reduced because of the lack of funding for BCAP. The travel times also have been removed from the request so the burden hours decreased by 6.428.
