Abstract The Water Resources Research Act of 1984, as amended (42 U.S.C. 10301 et seq.), authorizes a research institute water resources or center in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marina Islands, and American Samoa. There are currently 54 such institutes, one in each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. The institute in Guam is a regional institute serving Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Each of the 54 institutes submits an annual application for an allotment grant, national competitive grants, and provides an annual report on its activities under the grant. The State Water Resources Research Institute Program issues an annual call for applications from the institutes to support plans to promote research, training, information dissemination, and other activities meeting the needs of the States and Nation. The State Water Resources Research Institute Program also issues a second annual call for competitive grants to focus on water problems and issues of a regional or interstate nature beyond those of concern only to a single State. The U.S. Geological Survey has been designated as the administrator of the provisions of the Act. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Oct 21, 2016 Jkt 241001 II. Data OMB Control Number: 1028–0097.
