Examples are: (1) Your unexpired EAD; (2) A copy of your Application for Temporary Protected Status Notice of Action (Form I–797) for this reregistration; and/or (3) A copy of your past or current Application for Temporary Protected Status Approval Notice (Form I–797), if you received one from USCIS. Check with the government agency regarding which document(s) the agency will accept. You may also provide the agency with a copy of this Federal Register Notice. Some benefit-granting agencies use the USCIS Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements Program (SAVE) to verify the current immigration status of applicants for public benefits. If such an agency has denied your application based solely or in part on a SAVE response, the agency must offer you the opportunity to appeal the decision in accordance with the agency’s procedures. If the agency has received and acted upon or will act upon a SAVE verification and you do not believe the response is correct, you may make an InfoPass appointment for an in-person interview at a local USCIS office. Detailed information on how to make corrections, make an appointment, or submit a written request to correct records under the Freedom of Information Act can be found at the SAVE Web site at http://www.uscis.gov/ save, then by choosing ‘‘How to Correct Your Records’’ from the menu on the right.

Some list eligibility criteria as well as activities ineligible for funding. The authorities and implementing regulations for the competitive programs establish preferences or ranking factors for the selection of projects to be funded. These legal requirements make it essential for an awarding agency to have certain information so that it funds only eligible projects, and, in the case of competitive programs, to select those projects that will result in the greatest return on the Federal investment. Some grants are mandatory and receive funds according to a formula set by law or policy. Other grants are discretionary, and we award them based on a competitive process. Mandatory grant recipients must give us specific, detailed project information during the application process so that we can ensure that projects are eligible for the mandatory funding, are substantial in character and design, and comply with all applicable Federal laws. All grantees must submit financial and performance reports that contain information necessary for us to track costs and accomplishments. In February 2014, OMB approved our request to use a new electronic system (Wildlife Tracking and Reporting Actions for the Conservation of Species (Wildlife TRACS)) to collect application and performance reporting information on our grant programs. OMB assigned OMB Control No. 1018–0156, which expires February 28, 2017. Wildlife TRACS allows us to take advantage of newer technology and gives applicants direct access to enter project information that can be used to submit an application through http:// www.grants.gov. Grantees can also report performance accomplishments in Wildlife TRACS. We are including the use of Wildlife TRACS and the collection of additional information in this revision to OMB Control No. 1018– 0109. If OMB approves this revision, we will discontinue OMB Control No. 1018–0156. We may require all States to directly enter project information and performance reporting into Wildlife TRACS by October 1, 2016. We continue to offer training and support to States on entering information into the new system. When States fully engage in directly entering all application and project performance reporting into Wildlife TRACS, we expect there will be a reduction in the burden to report the information. States will become more adept with experience, and efficiencies of the electronic system will be realized starting in the second full year of use. A majority of WSFR-administered projects are continuations of similar actions and/or at the same locations. Wildlife TRACS is designed to ease the administrative burden of applying for and reporting on grants for projects that fall into these parameters. The table below reflects the burden reduction that we expect over the next 3 years. Not all grantees will directly enter information into Wildlife TRACS. We will enter information when we determine the grantee or the program is such that it is not efficient or in the best interest of the program to have grantees enter information. To apply for financial assistance funds, you must submit an application that describes in substantial detail project locations, benefits, funding, and other characteristics. Materials to assist applicants in formulating project proposals are available on Grants.gov. We use the application to determine: • Eligibility. • Scale of resource values or relative worth of the project. • If associated costs are reasonable and allowable. • Potential effect of the project on environmental and cultural resources. • How well the proposed project will meet the purposes of the program’s establishing legislation. • If the proposed project is substantial in character and design. • For competitive programs, how the proposed project addresses ranking criteria. Persons or entities receiving grants must submit periodic performance reports that contain information necessary for us to track costs and accomplishments. In addition to the information currently collected under OMB Control No. 1018–0109, we will collect the following additional information currently approved under OMB Control No. 1018–0156: For mandatory grant program applications and amendments: • Geospatial entry of project location. • Project status (active, completed, etc.).

For real property acquisition projects, information related to: • Transactions, such as dates, method of transfer, title holder, and seller. • Identifiers, such as State and Federal Record ID, parcel number, and property name. • Values such as appraised value, purchase price and other cost information, and acres or acre feet. • Encumbrances. • Partners.

[[Page 31062]]

    Authorities and implementing regulations establish the purposes of 
the grant programs and the types of projects to be funded. Some list 
eligibility criteria as well as activities ineligible for funding. The 
authorities and implementing regulations for the competitive programs 
establish preferences or ranking factors for the selection of projects 
to be funded. These legal requirements make it essential for an 
awarding agency to have certain information so that it funds only 
eligible projects, and, in the case of competitive programs, to select 
those projects that will result in the greatest return on the Federal 
investment.
    Some grants are mandatory and receive funds according to a formula 
set by law or policy. Other grants are discretionary, and we award them 
based on a competitive process. Mandatory grant recipients must give us 
specific, detailed project information during the application process 
so that we can ensure that projects are eligible for the mandatory 
funding, are substantial in character and design, and comply with all 
applicable Federal laws. All grantees must submit financial and 
performance reports that contain information necessary for us to track 
costs and accomplishments.
    In February 2014, OMB approved our request to use a new electronic 
system (Wildlife Tracking and Reporting Actions for the Conservation of 
Species (Wildlife TRACS)) to collect application and performance 
reporting information on our grant programs. OMB assigned OMB Control 
No. 1018-0156, which expires February 28, 2017. Wildlife TRACS allows 
us to take advantage of newer technology and gives applicants direct 
access to enter project information that can be used to submit an 
application through http://www.grants.gov. Grantees can also report 
performance accomplishments in Wildlife TRACS. We are including the use 
of Wildlife TRACS and the collection of additional information in this 
revision to OMB Control No. 1018-0109. If OMB approves this revision, 
we will discontinue OMB Control No. 1018-0156.
    We may require all States to directly enter project information and 
performance reporting into Wildlife TRACS by October 1, 2016. We 
continue to offer training and support to States on entering 
information into the new system. When States fully engage in directly 
entering all application and project performance reporting into 
Wildlife TRACS, we expect there will be a reduction in the burden to 
report the information. States will become more adept with experience, 
and efficiencies of the electronic system will be realized starting in 
the second full year of use. A majority of WSFR-administered projects 
are continuations of similar actions and/or at the same locations. 
Wildlife TRACS is designed to ease the administrative burden of 
applying for and reporting on grants for projects that fall into these

expect over the next 3 years. Not all grantees will directly enter 
information into Wildlife TRACS. We will enter information when we 
determine the grantee or the program is such that it is not efficient 
or in the best interest of the program to have grantees enter 
information.
    To apply for financial assistance funds, you must submit an 
application that describes in substantial detail project locations, 
benefits, funding, and other characteristics. Materials to assist 
applicants in formulating project proposals are available on 
Grants.gov. We use the application to determine:
