The 1998 Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research Control Act (HABHRCA), as amended, codified at 33 U.S.C. 4001– 4009, authorized the establishment of three national competitive programs on Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2014, Public Law 113–124; authorized the continuation of these programs. NOAA implements HABHRCA through the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) Program, the Monitoring and Event Response for Harmful Algal Bloom (MERHAB) Program and the Prevention, Control and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms (PCMHAB) Program. ECOHAB provides coastal managers with the understanding, tools, and models to predict the development, extent, and toxicity of HABs and their impacts, leading to early warning and new prevention and mitigation strategies. MERHAB builds capacity and enhances partnerships between managers, researchers, and private industry to improve monitoring for HAB cells and toxins and responding to HAB events. The PCM HAB program transitions promising technologies and strategies for preventing, controlling, or mitigating HABs and their impacts from development through demonstration and technology transfer for field application by end-users. A regional rotation for the three Harmful Algal Blooms Programs was implemented in Fiscal Year 2009. All three regions have been rotated once and a rotation cycle is now complete. Beginning in 2016, the regional rotation will not be used to define the geographic scope of future competitions. Hereafter, the necessary objectives, procedures, and guidance for Harmful Algal Bloom funding competitions will be posted in announcements on the OMB-designated government wide Web site for finding and applying for Federal financial assistance, currently www.Grants.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 1998 Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia 
Research Control Act (HABHRCA), as amended, codified at 33 U.S.C. 4001-
4009, authorized the establishment of three national competitive 
programs on Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and the Harmful Algal Bloom and 
Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2014, Public Law 113-
124; authorized the continuation of these programs. NOAA implements 
HABHRCA through the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms 
(ECOHAB) Program, the Monitoring and Event Response for Harmful Algal 
Bloom (MERHAB) Program and the Prevention, Control and Mitigation of 
Harmful Algal Blooms (PCMHAB) Program. ECOHAB provides coastal managers 
with the understanding, tools, and models to predict the development, 
extent, and toxicity of HABs and their impacts, leading to early 
warning and new prevention and mitigation strategies. MERHAB builds

rotation for the three Harmful Algal Blooms Programs was implemented in 
Fiscal Year 2009. All three regions have been rotated once and a 
rotation cycle is now complete. Beginning in 2016, the regional 
rotation will not be used to define the geographic scope of future 
competitions. Hereafter, the necessary objectives, procedures, and
