Abstract: The Division of Bird Habitat Conservation administers grant programs associated with the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA), Public Law 101–233, and the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA), Public Law 106–247. North American Wetlands Conservation Act Grants NAWCA provides matching grants to organizations and individuals who have developed partnerships to carry out wetlands conservation projects in the United States, Canada, and Mexico for the benefit of wetlands-associated migratory birds and other wildlife. There is a Standard and a Small Grants Program. Both are competitive grants programs and require that grant requests be matched by partner contributions at no less than a 1-to-1 ratio. Funds from U.S. Federal sources may contribute to a project, but are not eligible as a match. The Standard Grants Program supports projects in Canada, the United States, and Mexico that involve longterm protection, restoration, and enhancement of wetlands and associated uplands habitats. In Mexico, partners may also conduct projects involving technical training, environmental education and outreach, organizational infrastructure development, and sustainable-use studies. The Small Grants Program operates only in the United States. It supports the same types of projects and adheres to the same selection criteria and administrative guidelines as the U.S. Standard Grants Program. However, project activities are usually smaller in scope and involve fewer project dollars. Grant requests may not exceed $75,000, and funding priority is given to grantees or partners new to the NAWCA Grants Program. We publish notices of funding availability on Grants.gov (http:// www.grants.gov), as well as in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Jan 26, 2015 Jkt 235001 (https://www.cfda.gov). To compete for grant funds, partnerships submit applications that describe in substantial detail project locations, project resources, future benefits, and other characteristics that meet the standards established by the North American Wetlands Conservation Council and the requirements of NAWCA. Materials that describe the program and assist applicants in formulating project proposals are available on our Web site at http://www.fws.gov/birdhabitat/ Grants/NAWCA. Persons who do not have access to the Internet may obtain instructional materials by mail. We have not made any major changes in the scope and general nature of the instructions since OMB first approved the information collection in 1999. Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act NMBCA establishes a matching grant program to fund projects that promote the long-term conservation of neotropical migratory birds and their habitats in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Principal conservation actions supported are: • Protection and management of populations. • Maintenance, management, protection, and restoration of habitat. • Research and monitoring. • Law enforcement. • Community outreach and education.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Introduction With this notice, we continue the comprehensive conservation planning process for Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which we began by publishing VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Jan 26, 2015 Jkt 235001 The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge in Alaska. The purpose of developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a strategy for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS), consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and Service policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction for conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. In general, we review and update CCPs in Alaska every 15 to 20 years. ANILCA lists specific purposes for each refuge in Alaska. These purposes provide the foundation for developing and prioritizing the management goals and objectives for each Alaskan refuge. The planning process is a way for us and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives that will ensure the best possible approach to wildlife, plant, and habitat conservation while providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with each refuge’s establishing purposes and the mission of the NWRS. Additional Information The revised plan may be found at http://arctic.fws.gov/ccp.htm. The document incorporates an EIS, prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (43 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). Alternatives Considered The revised plan and final EIS includes detailed information about the refuge, planning process, issues, and management alternatives considered. The final EIS includes discussions of six alternatives for refuge management. All six alternatives address three significant issues: Wilderness recommendations, Wild and Scenic River recommendations, and Kongakut River visitor use management. The Service’s preferred alternative is described in the revised Plan and final EIS. PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4303 Alternative A: Current Management (No Action) This alternative reflects the current management direction of Arctic NWR. It provides the baseline against which to compare other alternatives. Under Alternative A, the refuge would continue to be managed according to the direction included in the 1988 plan. Current goals and objectives would not be changed. • Wilderness—No new areas would be recommended for Wilderness designation. • Wild and Scenic Rivers—No new rivers would be recommended for inclusion in the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. • Kongakut River Visitor Use Management—Managers would continue to manage visitors using the following practices: Group size limits for guided groups (7 hikers, 10 floaters); and No group size limits for non-guided groups, although we recommend using commercial limits; Information on lowimpact camping and other best practices would continue to be available on the Refuge Web site. Commercial service providers would continue to have special use permits with occasional compliance checks by the Service. Monitoring of physical and social conditions and visitor impacts would continue to occur occasionally. Air operator permit holders would be required to land on non-vegetated surfaces and asked to follow all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) advisories during flight operations. The Service would prepare a Public Use Management Plan (as required by the 1988 plan). Alternative B • Wilderness—Recommend the Brooks Range Wilderness Study Area to Congress for Wilderness designation. • Wild and Scenic Rivers— Recommend the Hulahula, Kongakut, and Marsh Fork Canning Rivers to Congress for inclusion into the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. • Kongakut River Visitor Use Management—Under this alternative, and immediately upon plan approval, we would proceed with two concurrent step-down plans: A Visitor Use Management Plan (VUMP) and a Wilderness Stewardship Plan (WSP). In addition to the practices identified under Alternative A, we would implement interim measures. The refuge would expand monitoring of degraded sites, work with guides to reduce visitor volume, work with air operators to disperse flights over high-use areas, publish a schedule of when guides will E:\FR\FM\27JAN1.SGM 27JAN1

    Abstract: The Division of Bird Habitat Conservation administers 
grant programs associated with the North American Wetlands Conservation 
Act (NAWCA), Public Law 101-233, and the Neotropical Migratory Bird 
Conservation Act (NMBCA), Public Law 106-247.

North American Wetlands Conservation Act Grants

    NAWCA provides matching grants to organizations and individuals who 
have developed partnerships to carry out wetlands conservation projects 
in the United States, Canada, and Mexico for the benefit of wetlands-
associated migratory birds and other wildlife. There is a Standard and 
a Small Grants Program. Both are competitive grants programs and 
require that grant requests be matched by partner contributions at no 
less than a 1-to-1 ratio. Funds from U.S. Federal sources may 
contribute to a project, but are not eligible as a match.
    The Standard Grants Program supports projects in Canada, the United 
States, and Mexico that involve long-term protection, restoration, and 
enhancement of wetlands and associated uplands habitats. In Mexico, 
partners may also conduct projects involving technical training, 
environmental education and outreach, organizational infrastructure 
development, and sustainable-use studies.
    The Small Grants Program operates only in the United States. It 
supports the same types of projects and adheres to the same selection 
criteria and administrative guidelines as the U.S. Standard Grants 
Program. However, project activities are usually smaller in scope and 
involve fewer project dollars. Grant requests may not exceed $75,000, 
and funding priority is given to grantees or partners new to the NAWCA 
Grants Program.
    We publish notices of funding availability on Grants.gov (http://www.grants.gov), as well as in the Catalog of Federal Domestic 
Assistance (https://www.cfda.gov). To compete for grant funds, 
partnerships submit applications that describe in substantial detail 
project locations, project resources, future benefits, and other 
characteristics that meet the standards established by the North 
American Wetlands Conservation Council and the requirements of NAWCA. 
Materials that describe the program and assist applicants in 
formulating project proposals are available on our Web site at http://www.fws.gov/birdhabitat/Grants/NAWCA. Persons who do not have access to 
the Internet may obtain instructional materials by mail. We have not 
made any major changes in the scope and general nature of the 
instructions since OMB first approved the information collection in 
1999.

Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act

    NMBCA establishes a matching grant program to fund projects that 
promote the long-term conservation of neotropical migratory birds and 
their habitats in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the 
Caribbean. Principal conservation actions supported are:
     Protection and management of populations.
     Maintenance, management, protection, and restoration of 
habitat.
     Research and monitoring.
     Law enforcement.
     Community outreach and education.
    We publish notices of funding availability on Grants.gov as well as 
in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. To compete for grant 
funds, partnerships submit applications that describe in substantial 
detail project locations, project resources, future benefits, and other 
characteristics that meet the standards established by the U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service and the requirements of NMBCA.
    Materials that describe the program and assist applicants in 
formulating project proposals for consideration are available on our 
Web site at http://www.fws.gov/birdhabitat/Grants/NMBCA. Persons who do 
not have access to the Internet may obtain instructional materials by 
mail. We have not made any major changes in the scope and general 
nature of the instructions since OMB first approved the information 
collection in 2002.
