Abstract: Some of the world’s most treasured and exotic animals are dangerously close to extinction. Destruction of natural habitat, illegal poaching, and pet-trade smuggling are devastating populations of tigers, rhinos, marine turtles, great apes, elephants, and many other highly cherished species. The Division of International Conservation and Division of Scientific Authority administer competitive grant programs funded under the following authorities: • African Elephant Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 4201–4245). • Asian Elephant Conservation Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 4261). • Great Apes Conservation Act of 2000 (16 U.S.C. 85). • Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act of 1994 (16 U.S.C. 5306). • Marine Turtle Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 82). • Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) (Wildlife Without Borders Programs—Africa, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean, Russia, Critically Endangered Species, Combatting Wildlife Trafficking, and Amphibians in Decline). Applicants submit proposals for funding in response to Notices of Funding Opportunity published by the Service on Grants.gov. We collect the following information: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Sep 29, 2017 Jkt 244001 • Project summary and narrative. • Letter of appropriate government endorsement. • Brief curricula vitae for key project personnel. • Complete Standard Forms 424 and 424b (nondomestic applicants do not submit the standard forms). Proposals may also include, as appropriate, a copy of the organization’s Negotiated Indirect Cost Rate Agreement (NICRA) and any additional documentation supporting the proposed project. The project summary and narrative are the basis for this information collection. A panel of technical experts reviews each proposal to assess how well the project addresses the priorities identified by each program’s authorizing legislation and the associated project costs. As all of the on-the-ground projects are conducted outside the United States, the letter of appropriate government endorsement ensures that the proposed activities will be supportive of locally identified priorities and needs. Brief curricula vitae for key project personnel allow the review panel to assess the qualifications of project staff to effectively carry out the project goals and objectives. As all Federal entities must honor the indirect cost rates an organization has negotiated with its cognizant agency, we require all organizations with a NICRA to submit the agreement paperwork with their proposals to verify how their rate is applied in their proposed budget. All assistance awards under these grant programs have a maximum reporting requirement of: • An interim report (performance report and a financial status report) as appropriate, and • A final report (performance and financial status report and copies of all deliverables, photographic documentation of the project and products resulting from the project) due within 90 days of the end of the performance period. In accordance with DOI/FWS Policy, FWS Form 3–2338, ‘‘International Conservation Programs Cover Page) has expired and been replaced by the Standard Form 424 for all applicants to all of our programs. Accordingly, this collection is being revised to remove FWS Form 3–2338 which is no longer used. Title of Collection: International Conservation Grant Programs. OMB Control Number: 1018–0123. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Domestic and nondomestic individuals; PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45883 nonprofit organizations; educational institutions; private sector entities; and State, local, and tribal governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 744. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,272. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 22 hours for grant applications and 40 hours for grant reporting. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 38,856. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain a Benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: None. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Dated: September 27, 2017. Madonna L. Baucum, Information Collection Clearance Officer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
