SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the notice of funding availability published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2006 (71 FR 33898) NOAA announced the availability of funding for several grant or cooperative agreement programs. That notice, however, contained several inadvertent errors in the entries for the NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics, the NMFSSea Grant Fellowship Program in Population Dynamics, and the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration Grants Program (Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation Facility). This notice announces the correct information for those programs. the full proposal deadline as December 19, 2007 (71 FR 33920, June 12, 2006).

ACTION: Notice; availability of grant funds; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration publishes 
this notice to correct errors contained in a previously published 
notice of availability of funds (June 12, 2006) for the NMFS-Sea Grant 
Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics, the NMFS-Sea Grant 
Fellowship Program in Population Dynamics, and the Ballast Water 
Technology Demonstration Grants Program (Research, Development, Testing 
and Evaluation Facility). This notice corrects errors concerning the 
amount of funds available for fellowships, the amount of cost sharing 
required for those fellowships, and the deadlines for application for 
those fellowships and grants competitions.

DATES: Final proposals for the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration 
Program (Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation Facility) must 
be received by 5 p.m. EST on Tuesday, December 19, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the notice of funding availability 
published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2006 (71 FR 33898) NOAA 
announced the availability of funding for several grant or cooperative 
agreement programs. That notice, however, contained several inadvertent 
errors in the entries for the NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in 
Marine Resource Economics, the NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in 
Population Dynamics, and the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration 
Grants Program (Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation 
Facility). This notice announces the correct information for those 
programs.

NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Marine Resource 
Economics and NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Population Dynamics

    In the June 12, 2006 notice, the entries for the NMFS-Sea Grant 
Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics, 71 FR 
33927, June 12, 2006, and the NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship 
Program in Population Dynamics, 71 FR 33927, June 12, 2006, listed 
incorrectly the cooperative agreement award amount as $40,000 per year, 
and the cost share requirement as $6,667 per year. These amounts were 
inaccurately listed due to a typographical error. For both of these 
fellowships, the correct cooperative agreement award amount is $38,500 
per year, and the correct cost share requirement is $6,417 per year.
    Both of these fellowship announcements also suggested that local 
Sea Grant programs consider setting an internal deadline one week prior 
to the application deadline. This statement was in error. The Sea Grant 
programs do not have a specific time interval and none was intended. 
The correct suggestion to the local Sea Grant programs is that they 
consider setting an internal deadline prior to the application deadline 
for these fellowships.

Ballast Water Technology Demonstration Grants Program (Research, 
Development, Testing and Evaluation Facility)

    The June 12, 2006 notice of funding availability also contained an 
error in the entry for the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration 
Grants Program (Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation 
Facility). The June 12, 2006 notice incorrectly listed the full 
proposal deadline as December 19, 2007 (71 FR 33920, June 12, 2006).
