    Abstract: Subtitle C of Title VI of the Omnibus Public Land 
Management Act of 2009 (Act) (Pub. L. 111-11) authorizes the Secretary 
of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture to develop a Wolf-
Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program (WLDPGP) to:
     Assist livestock producers in undertaking proactive, 
nonlethal activities to reduce the risk of livestock loss due to 
predation by wolves; and
     Compensate livestock producers for livestock losses due to 
such predation.
    The Act directs that the program be established as a grant program 
to provide funding to States and tribes, that the Federal cost-share 
not exceed 50 percent, and that funds be expended equally between the 
two purposes. The Act included an authorization of appropriations up to 
$1 million each fiscal year for 5 years. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service Endangered Species Program will allocate the funding as 
competitively awarded grants to States and tribes with a prior history 
of wolf depredation. States with delisted wolf populations are eligible 
for funding, provided that they meet the eligibility criteria contained 
in Public Law 111-11.
    The following additional criteria apply to all WLDPGP grants and 
must be satisfied for a project to receive WLDPGP funding:
     A proposal cannot include U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
full-time equivalent (FTE) costs.
     A proposal cannot seek funding for projects that serve to 
satisfy regulatory requirements of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) 
including complying with a biological opinion under section 7 or 
fulfilling commitments of a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) under 
section 10, or for projects that serve to satisfy other Federal 
regulatory requirements (e.g., mitigation for Federal permits).
     State administrative costs must be assumed by the State or 
included in the proposal in accordance with Federal requirements.
    We will publish notices of funding availability on the Grants.gov 
Web site at http://www.grants.gov as well as in the Catalog of Federal 
Domestic Assistance at http://cfda.gov. To compete for grant funds, 
eligible States and tribes must submit an application that describes in 
substantial detail project locations, project resources, future 
benefits, and other characteristics that meet the Wolf-Livestock 
Demonstration Project Grant Program purposes as listed above. In 
accordance with the Act, States and tribes that receive a grant must:
     Maintain files of all claims received under programs 
funded by the grant, including supporting documentation; and
     Submit an annual report that includes a summary of claims 
and expenditures under the program during the year and a description of 
any action taken on the claims.

Materials that describe the program and assist applicants in 
formulating project proposals will be available on our Web site at 
www.fws.gov/grants. Persons who do not have access to the Internet may 
obtain instructional materials by mail.
    Comments: On April 2, 2012, we published in the Federal Register 
(77 FR 19682) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this 
information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60
