North American Wetlands Conservation Act: Request for Evaluation 
Grant Proposals for Year 2000

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of information collection; correction.


SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to correct an Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) information collections clearance number 
cited erroneously in a previous Federal Register announcement 
requesting proposals for evaluation grants, as provided for by the 
North American Wetlands Conservation Act.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Keith A. Morehouse, Small Grants 
Coordinator, North American Waterfowl and Wetlands Office, 703/358-
1784; facsimile 703/358-2282.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On Wednesday, May 26, 1999, the Service 
published a Federal Register notice of request for proposals for the 
evaluation grants program (64 FR 28504) to be conducted under the 
authority of section 19 of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act 
of 1989, as amended. The evaluation grants program seeks to evaluate 
the wetland conservation effectiveness of the ongoing Small and 
Standard Grants programs. The referenced notice signaled the initiation 
of the new program but cited incorrectly that the OMB clearance number 
is 1018-0100. The OMB information collections clearance number 1018-
0100 is in fact that for the Small and Standard Grants programs, 
approved on May 26, 1999. The emergency clearance number provided by 
OMB, on 06/04/99, for information collections under the evaluation 
grants program, and the one that should have been cited in the request 
for proposals, is 1018-0104. This emergency approval expires on 
November 30, 1999. Also, the May 26 notice should have advised that the 
anticipated paperwork burden for applicants is 8 hours for a 
preproposal and 40 hours for a proposal.

    Dated: June 28, 1999.

Assistant Director--Refuges and Wildlife, Fish and Wildlife Service.
