BILLING CODE 6050–28–P DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Department of the Navy Although the most recent Final SEIS/SOEIS for SURTASS LFA Sonar was completed in June 2012, during subsequent litigation (Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. et al. v. Pritzker et al., No. 12–cv– 05380–EDL [E.D. Cal. October 18, 2012]), the court found that the SEIS/ SOEIS was deficient in one limited respect in that the DoN failed to use the best available data from the 2010 Pacific Stock Assessment Report to analyze the potential impact of SURTASS LFA sonar on the individual stocks within the Hawaiian Islands Stock Complex of common bottlenose dolphins and allow public comment on that analysis. The court upheld the current SEIS/SOEIS in all other respects. The SEIS/SOEIS proposed in this notice will be prepared for the limited purpose of addressing the single deficiency identified by the court.

Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the Field-Initiated (FI) Projects program is to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities. Another purpose of the FI Projects program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The purpose of this competition is to improve the capacity of minority entities to conduct high-quality disability and rehabilitation research. NIDRR will accomplish this by limiting eligibility for this competition to minority entities and Indian tribes in a manner consistent with section 21(b)(2)(A) of the Act, which authorizes NIDRR to make awards to minority entities and Indian tribes to carry out activities authorized under Title II of the Act. NIDRR makes two types of awards under the FI Projects program: research grants and development grants. The MSI FI Projects research grants will be awarded under CFDA 84.133G–4, and the development grants will be awarded under CFDA 84.133G–5. Note: Different selection criteria are used for FI Projects research grants and development grants. An applicant must clearly indicate in the application whether it is applying for a research grant (84.133G–4) or a development grant (84.133G–5) and must address the selection criteria relevant for its grant type. Without exception, NIDRR will review each application based on the grant designation made by the applicant. Applications will be determined ineligible and will not be reviewed if they do not include a clear designation as a research grant or a development grant. In carrying out a research activity under an FI Projects research grant, a grantee must identify one or more hypotheses or research questions and, based on the hypotheses or research questions identified, perform an intensive, systematic study directed toward producing (1) new or full scientific knowledge, or (2) better understanding of the subject, problem studied, or body of knowledge. In carrying out a development activity under an FI Projects development grant, a grantee must use knowledge and understanding gained from research to create materials, devices, systems, or methods beneficial to the target E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1
