ACTION: Notice concerning termination of eligibility. AGENCY: National Institutes of Health [FR Doc. 2020–01027 Filed 1–22–20; 8:45 am] [CIS No. 2656–20; DHS Docket No. USCIS– 2019–0022] U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is announcing that nationals of Iran and their dependents are no longer eligible to change to or extend their stay in E–1 or E–2 nonimmigrant status on the basis of the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations, and Consular Rights between the United States and Iran (the Treaty of Amity) due to the treaty’s termination. DATES: This announcement is made on January 23, 2020, and describes policy that governs adjudications on or after that date. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles Nimick, Chief, Business and Foreign Workers Division, Office of Policy and Strategy, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, 20 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Suite 1100, Washington, DC 20529–2120; telephone: (202) 272–8377 (not a toll-free call). Individuals with a hearing or speech impairments may access the telephone numbers above via TTY by calling the toll-free Federal Information Relay Service at 1–877– 889–5627 (TTY/TDD). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended, establishes the E nonimmigrant visa classification. Under section 101(a)(15)(E) of the INA, an otherwise admissible alien is eligible for E visa classification if ‘‘entitled to enter the United States under and in pursuance of the provisions of a treaty of commerce and navigation between the United States and the foreign state of which he is a national[.]’’ The existence of a qualifying treaty or authorizing legislation is therefore a threshold requirement for the issuance of an E visa or for obtaining such status. On October 3, 2018, the U.S. Department of State notified Iran of the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 termination of the Treaty of Amity. Subsequently, on October 23, 2019, the U.S. Department of State provided DHS with formal notice of the termination of the treaty. There are no other qualifying treaties with Iran currently in force or other Iran-specific bases for granting or extending E–1 or E–2 status to Iranian nationals. Accordingly, a national of Iran is no longer eligible for an extension of stay in E–1 or E–2 status or a change of status to E–1 or E–2 on the basis of the Treaty of Amity. Aliens who are currently in valid E–1 or E–2 status on the basis of the Treaty of Amity, including their family members who are also in valid E status, will be required to depart from the United States upon expiration of their authorized period of stay in the United States, unless otherwise authorized to remain in the United States (e.g., pursuant to a change of status to another nonimmigrant status or adjustment of status to lawful permanent residence). USCIS will issue Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs) to the affected applicants who have pending applications for extensions of stay in, or changes of status to, E–1 or E–2 status on the basis of the Treaty of Amity. Through the issuance of NOIDs, affected applicants will be notified of the effect of the treaty termination and given an opportunity to respond. If the grounds for issuance of the NOID are not overcome, USCIS will proceed to deny the application. The changes described in this notice do not prevent Iranian nationals and their dependents from seeking admission in, or applying for a grant of, another nonimmigrant visa classification for which they believe they can establish eligibility under U.S. immigration law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 priority list of wildlife and sport fish conservation projects from the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (Association). As required by the Fish and Wildlife Programs Improvement and National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Act of 2000 (Improvement Act, Pub. L. 106–408) amended the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 et seq.) and the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 777 et seq.), the Association submits a list of projects to us each year to consider for funding under the Multistate Conservation Grant Program. We have reviewed the list and recommended all projects on the list for award to the Service Director. The Service Director approved the entire list of projects for award, and we have awarded funds for all projects from the list. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background The Fish and Wildlife Programs Improvement and National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Act of 2000 (Improvement Act, Pub. L. 106–408) amended the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 et seq.) and the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 777 et seq.) and established the Multistate Conservation Grant Program. The Improvement Act authorizes us to award grants of up to $3 million annually from funds available under each of the restoration acts, for a total of up to $6 million annually. Projects can be funded from both funds, depending on the project activities. We may award grants to projects from a list of priority projects recommended to us by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The Service Director, exercising the authority of the Secretary of the Interior, need not fund all projects on the list, but all projects funded must be on the list. The Improvement Act provides that funding for Multistate grants is available in the year it is appropriated and for the following year. Funding Amounts Total funding available for FY 2018 was $6,039,090; the total requested was approximately $6,024,583.08. The available funding was due to funding carried over from FY 2017, as well as the availability of funding that had previously been sequestered. After subtracting committed funds ($3,261,027) among the three components of the 2016 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (parts A & B), there was $2,778,063 available for new awards. The 2018 new award Priority List requested $2,763,556.08. To be eligible for funding, a project must benefit fish and/or wildlife conservation for at least 26 States, for a majority of the States in any one Service Region, or for one of the regional associations of State fish and wildlife agencies. We may award grants to a State, a group of States, or one or more nongovernmental organizations. For the purpose of carrying out the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, we may award grants to the Service, if requested by the Association, or to a State or a group of States. Also, the Association requires all project proposals to address the Association’s National Conservation Needs, which are announced annually at the same time requests for proposals are sent out. Further, applicants must provide certification that no activities conducted under a Multistate Conservation Grant will promote or encourage opposition to regulated hunting or trapping of wildlife, or to regulated angling or taking of fish. The Association’s committees and interested nongovernmental organizations that represent conservation organizations, sportsmen’s and -women’s organizations, and industries that support or promote fishing, hunting, trapping, recreational shooting, bowhunting, or archery review and rank eligible project proposals. The Association’s National Grants Committee recommends a final list of priority projects to the directors of the State fish and wildlife agencies for their approval by majority vote. By statute, the Association then transmits the final approved list to the Service for funding under the Multistate Conservation Grant program by October 1 of the fiscal year. Funding Eligibility Fiscal Year 2018 Priority List of Awarded Wildlife and Sport Fish Conservation Projects Grantees under this program may use funds for sport fisheries and wildlife management and research projects, boating access development, hunter safety and education, aquatic education, fish and wildlife habitat improvements, and other purposes consistent with the enabling legislation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
(Service), announce the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 priority list of wildlife 
and sport fish conservation projects from the Association of Fish and 
Wildlife Agencies (Association). As required by the Fish and Wildlife 
Programs Improvement and National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Act 
of 2000 (Improvement Act, Pub. L. 106-408) amended the Pittman-
Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 et seq.) and the 
Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 777 et seq.), the 
Association submits a list of projects to us each year to consider for 
funding under the Multistate Conservation Grant Program. We have 
reviewed the list and recommended all projects on the list for award to 
the Service Director. The Service Director approved the entire list of 
projects for award, and we have awarded funds for all projects from the 
list.

Background

    The Fish and Wildlife Programs Improvement and National Wildlife 
Refuge System Centennial Act of 2000 (Improvement Act, Pub. L. 106-408) 
amended the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 
et seq.) and the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 
777 et seq.) and established the Multistate Conservation Grant Program. 
The Improvement Act authorizes us to award grants of up to $3 million 
annually from funds available under each of the restoration acts, for a 
total of up to $6 million annually. Projects can be funded from both 
funds, depending on the project activities. We may award grants to 
projects from a list of priority projects recommended to us by the 
Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The Service Director, 
exercising the authority of the Secretary of the Interior, need not 
fund all projects on the list, but all projects funded must be on the 
list. The Improvement Act provides that funding for Multistate grants 
is available in the year it is appropriated and for the following year.

Funding Amounts

    Total funding available for FY 2018 was $6,039,090; the total 
requested was approximately $6,024,583.08. The available funding was 
due to funding carried over from FY 2017, as well as the availability 
of funding that had previously been sequestered. After subtracting 
committed funds ($3,261,027) among the three components of the 2016 
National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation 
(parts A & B), there was $2,778,063 available for new awards. The 2018 
new award Priority List requested $2,763,556.08.

Funding Eligibility

    Grantees under this program may use funds for sport fisheries and 
wildlife management and research projects, boating access development, 
hunter safety and education, aquatic education, fish and wildlife 
habitat improvements, and other purposes consistent with the enabling 
legislation.
    To be eligible for funding, a project must benefit fish and/or 
wildlife conservation for at least 26 States, for a majority of the 
States in any one Service Region, or for one of the regional 
associations of State fish and wildlife agencies. We may award grants 
to a State, a group of States, or one or more nongovernmental 
organizations. For the purpose of carrying out the National Survey of 
Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, we may award 
grants to the Service, if requested by the Association, or to a State 
or a group of States. Also, the Association requires all project 
proposals to address the Association's National Conservation Needs, 
which are announced annually at the same time requests for proposals 
are sent out. Further, applicants must provide certification that no 
activities conducted under a Multistate Conservation Grant will promote 
or encourage opposition to regulated hunting or trapping of wildlife, 
or to regulated angling or taking of fish.
    The Association's committees and interested nongovernmental 
organizations that represent conservation organizations, sportsmen's 
and -women's organizations, and industries that support or promote 
fishing, hunting, trapping, recreational shooting, bowhunting, or 
archery review and rank eligible project proposals. The Association's 
National Grants Committee recommends a final list of priority projects 
to the directors of the State fish and wildlife agencies for their 
approval by majority vote. By statute, the Association then transmits 
the final approved list to the Service for funding under the Multistate 
Conservation Grant program by October 1 of the fiscal year.
