SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NOAA publishes this notice to extend an application deadline for the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration Program and the National Strategic Initiative in Aquatic Invasive Species Research and Outreach initiated by the NSGO. The original solicitation of applications was published in the Federal Register on July 14, 2004 (69 FR 42132).

For the Ballast Water Technology Demonstration Program, NOAA announces that the date by which all full proposals must be received by the National Sea Grant Office has been changed from November 16, 2004 to November 30, 2004.

For the National Strategic Initiative in Aquatic Invasive Species Research and Outreach, the date by which full proposals must be forwarded by State Sea Grant Programs to the National Sea Grant Office has been changed from November 23, 2004 to December 1, 2004. The reason for these changes is to aid the PI's and the Sea Grants programs in the transition to electronic grant submission through Grants.gov. All other application deadlines remain the same.

The Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) notice has been modified to reflect these changes. In addition, the FFO has been amended to allow proposal submission to these two programs electronically through http://www.grants.gov.

This program is excluded under E.O. 12372.
