restoration of fish and wildlife. These Acts and our regulations at 50 
CFR 80.10 require that States and territories annually certify their 
hunting and fishing license sales. States and territories that receive 
grants under these Acts use FWS Forms 3-154a (Part I--Certification) 
and 3-154b (Part II--Summary of Hunting and Sport Fishing Licenses 
Issued) to certify the number and amount of hunting and fishing license 
sales. We use the information collected to determine apportionment and 
distribution of funds according to the formula specified in each Act.
