Download as PDF 17774 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 63 / Thursday, April 2, 2015 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES that at least one Primary Responsible Organization be entered for each activity, and grantees may choose to add ancillary Responsible Organizations to an activity. A Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number must be entered for each Responsible Organization. The March 5, 2013 Notice (78 FR 14329) required grantees to enter a DUNS number into the system for any entity carrying out a CDBG–DR funded activity, including the grantee, recipient(s) and subrecipient(s), contractor(s) and developers carrying out a CDBG–DR activity. The language describing DRGR reporting requirements was later revised in the July 11, 2014 Notice (79 FR 40134) to exclude requirements for identifying contracts above $25,000. This Notice, however, did not modify requirements for entering Responsible Organizations or DUNS numbers. To reduce the reporting burden on grantees, paragraph II.1.a. at 79 FR 40134 is amended to require that grantees only enter a DUNS number for the Responsible Organization or Organizations associated with an activity—with the understanding that only a single primary Responsible Organization is required to be identified within grantee DRGR Action Plans—and now reads as follows: ‘‘The Action Plan must also be entered into the DRGR system so that the grantee is able to draw its CDBG–DR funds. The grantee may enter activities into DRGR before or after submission of the Action Plan to HUD. To enter an activity into the DRGR system, the grantee must know the activity type, national objective, and the organization or organizations that will be responsible for the activity. In addition, a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number must be entered into the system for each entity designated as a Responsible Organization for the activity.’’ Grantees are reminded that this modification applies only to requirements for DRGR DUNS number reporting and does not change any other Federal DUNS number reporting requirements. III. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for the disaster recovery grants under this Notice is as follows: 14.269. IV. Finding of No Significant Impact A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with respect to the environment has been made in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 CFR part 50, which implement section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C)).

These responsibilities dictate that we gather accurate data on various characteristics of migratory bird populations. The North American Woodcock Singing Ground Survey is an essential part of the migratory bird management program. State, Federal, Provincial, local, and tribal conservation agencies conduct the survey annually to provide the data necessary to determine the population status of the woodcock.

Without information on the population’s status, we might promulgate hunting regulations that: • Are not sufficiently restrictive, which could cause harm to the woodcock population, or • Are too restrictive, which would unduly restrict recreational opportunities afforded by woodcock hunting. The Service, State conservation agencies, university associates, and other interested parties use the data for various research and management projects. Dated: March 30, 2015. Tina A.
