Notice; availability of grant funds; correction.
This notice corrects two errors contained in the notice of availability of funds published in the Federal Register on March 27, 2006. That notice announced two project competitions: the National Sea Grant Start Printed Page 16563College Program/Aquatic Invasive Species Program competition and the National Sea Grant College Program/Climate Program Office. This notice corrects an incorrect application deadline for the National Sea Grant College Program/Aquatic Invasive Species Program competition, and an incorrect Federal Opportunity Number listed for the National Sea Grant College Program/Climate Program Office competition.

Prior notice and an opportunity for public comment are not required by the Administrative Procedure Act or any other law for rules concerning public property, loans, grants, benefits, and contracts (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2)). Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis has not been prepared.Start Signature
