The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS) evaluating the environmental impacts of funding a combination of hazardous fuels reduction projects within the East Bay Hills area in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, California. The projects may be funded through Federal assistance grants under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and the Pre- Disaster Mitigation (PDM). The National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, Fisheries Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Emergency Management Agency, the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), the City of Oakland (Oakland), and the East Bay Regional Parks District (EBRPD) have participated in the preparation of the EIS as cooperating agencies. Public meetings will be held during the public comment period on the draft EIS. The draft EIS is available on the project Web site at http://ebheis.cdmims.com.
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) Opportunity With the Department of Homeland Security for the Development of a Foot-and-Mouth Disease 3ABC ELISA Diagnostic Kit
Document Number: 2013-11693

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T), through its Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC), is seeking industry collaborators to aid DHS S&T in developing an ELISA diagnostic test that it capable of obtaining a U.S. regulatory license to detect antibodies to at least one of the Foot and Mouth Disease virus (FMDV) non-structural proteins (NSP): 3A, 3B, or 3C. This new FMDV 3ABC ELISA may be used in the event of a real or suspected outbreak of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) in order to differentiate infected from vaccinated, non-infected animals (DIVA). The role of the industry collaborator(s) in this CRADA will be to develop and validate the FMDV 3ABC ELISA assay in collaboration with DHS S&T and the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Foreign Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (USDA APHIS FADDL) at PIADC, and with other U.S. laboratories that are associated with USDA, such as the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN). Components of a prototype assay, developed by USDA, Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory, and a 3rd party fee-for-service contractor, will be made available to the industry collaborator(s). The goal of the CRADA is to submit a data package to USDA APHIS Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB) in order to obtain a U.S. regulatory license for use under the direction of USDA administrators of the FMDV 3ABC ELISA in the U.S. (See CVB Veterinary Services Memorandum No. 800.73 for ``General Requirements for Immunodiagnostic Test Kits for the Detection of Antibody or Antigen.'') The assay must also successfully identify and test a reference panel of sera provided by OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) as tested in a U.S. Reference Laboratory, e.g., USDA APHIS FADDL. DHS S&T is seeking CRADA collaborators that own or have access to the technological components for, have the technological expertise in, and have proven track records of success in the fields of diagnostic test kit research, development, and the obtaining of USDA licensure for the detection of antibodies to viral antigen(s). CRADA collaborators must indicate if they are currently or may be funded by the Federal government, and, if yes, they must include a discussion of how proposed CRADA work and Federal government-funded work would not be duplicative. The proposed term of the CRADA can be up to thirty (30) months.

Availability of Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for the Proposed Modification of the Bayonne Bridge Across the Kill Van Kull Between Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey and Staten Island, Richmond County, New York
Document Number: 2013-11627
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-05-16
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
This notice announces the availability of a Final Environmental Assessment (Final EA) which examines the reasonably foreseeable environmental impacts and socio-economic impacts of the proposed modification of the historic Bayonne Bridge across the Kill Van Kull between Bayonne, New Jersey and Staten Island, New York. This notice also announces the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). Because the Bayonne Bridge is a structure over navigable waters of the United States, the proposed bridge modification requires a Coast Guard Bridge Permit Amendment. This notice provides information on where to view the Final EA and FONSI, which consider an application by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) for Coast Guard approval of the modification to the Bayonne Bridge across the Kill Van Kull.
