Abstract: Information collection requirements associated with the administrative processes used to administer Service financial assistance programs are currently approved under four different OMB control numbers: • 1018–0100, ‘‘Migratory Birds and Wetlands Conservation Grant Programs, 50 CFR 17 and 23’’; • 1018–0109, ‘‘Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Grants and Cooperative Agreements, 50 CFR 80, 81, 84, 85, and 86’’; • 1018–0123, ‘‘International Conservation Grant Programs’’; and • 1018–0154, ‘‘Wolf-Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program.’’ In this revision, we are consolidating all of the information collection requirements associated with the four OMB Control Numbers identified above into one control number, OMB Control No. 1018–0100, with a new title to more accurately reflect the purpose of the consolidated collection of information. Consolidation of OMB approvals into a single collection reduces burden on the public by ensuring consistency in the application and award administration processes across all Service financial assistance programs. If OMB approves this request, we will discontinue OMB Control Numbers 1018–0109, 1018– 0123, and 1018–0154. We issue financial assistance through grants and cooperative agreement awards to individuals; commercial organizations; institutions of higher education; non-profit organizations; foreign entities; and State, local, and Tribal governments. The Service administers a wide variety of financial assistance programs, authorized by Congress to address the Service’s mission, as listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA). The CFDA is a government-wide compendium of Federal programs, projects, services, and activities that provide assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial and non-financial assistance programs administered by departments and establishments of the Federal government. The CFDA listing includes program types and numbers, the specific type of assistance for each program, and includes the applicable authorities for each program within the description. A list of currently authorized Service financial assistance programs can be found at https://www.cfda.gov/ ?s=agency&mode=form&tab= program&id=000710afb4d72c15f9 fc20a83f7319d0.

    Abstract: Information collection requirements associated with the 
administrative processes used to administer Service financial 
assistance programs are currently approved under four different OMB 
control numbers:
     1018-0100, ``Migratory Birds and Wetlands Conservation 
Grant Programs, 50 CFR 17 and 23'';
     1018-0109, ``Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Grants 
and Cooperative Agreements, 50 CFR 80, 81, 84, 85, and 86'';
     1018-0123, ``International Conservation Grant Programs''; 
and
     1018-0154, ``Wolf-Livestock Demonstration Project Grant 
Program.''
    In this revision, we are consolidating all of the information 
collection requirements associated with the four OMB Control Numbers 
identified above into one control number, OMB Control No. 1018-0100, 
with a new title to more accurately reflect the purpose of the 
consolidated collection of information. Consolidation of OMB approvals 
into a single collection reduces burden on the public by ensuring 
consistency in the application and award administration processes 
across all Service financial assistance programs. If OMB approves this 
request, we will discontinue OMB Control Numbers 1018-0109, 1018-0123, 
and 1018-0154.
    We issue financial assistance through grants and cooperative 
agreement awards to individuals; commercial organizations; institutions 
of higher education; non-profit organizations; foreign entities; and 
State, local, and Tribal governments. The Service administers a wide 
variety of financial assistance programs, authorized by Congress to 
address the Service's mission, as listed in the Catalog of Federal 
Domestic Assistance (CFDA). The CFDA is a government-wide compendium of 
Federal programs, projects, services, and activities that provide 
assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial 
and non-financial assistance programs administered by departments and 
establishments of the Federal government. The CFDA listing includes 
program types and numbers, the specific type of assistance for each 
program, and includes the applicable authorities for each program 
within the description. A list of currently authorized Service 
financial assistance programs can be found at https://www.cfda.gov/?s=agency&mode=form&tab=program&id=000710afb4d72c15f9fc20a83f7319d0. 
The Service currently manages the following types of assistance as 
categorized by the CFDA:

 Formula Grants
 Project Grants
 Project Grants (Discretionary)
 Cooperative Agreements (Discretionary Grants)
 Direct Payments with Unrestricted Use
 Use of Property, Facilities, and Equipment
 Provision of Specialized Services
 Advisory Services and Counseling
 Dissemination of Technical Information
 Training

    Some assistance programs are mandatory and funds are awarded to 
eligible recipients according to a formula set by law or policy. Other 
programs are discretionary and award funds based on competitive 
selection and merit review processes. Mandatory grant recipients must 
give us specific, detailed project information during the application 
process so that we may ensure that projects are eligible for the 
mandatory funding, are substantial in character and design, and comply 
with all applicable Federal laws. Discretionary grant applicants must 
give us information as dictated by the program requirements and as 
requested in the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO), including that 
information that addresses ranking criteria. All recipients must submit 
financial and performance reports that contain information necessary 
for us to track costs and accomplishments. The rewardees' reports must 
adhere to schedules and rules in 2 CFR part 200, Uniform Administrative 
Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal 
Awards, which was effective as of December 26, 2014. Part 200 
prescribes the information that Federal agencies must collect, and 
financial assistance recipients must provide, and also supports this 
information collection.
    The Service uses the grant process to provide technical and 
financial assistance to other Federal agencies, States, local 
governments, Native American tribes, non-governmental organizations, 
citizen groups, and private landowners, for the conservation and 
management of fish and wildlife resources. The process begins with the

prioritizes proposed projects based on their respective project 
selection criteria. Pending availability of funding, applicants can
