National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; Department of Commerce.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration published a document in the Federal Register of January 2, 2009 entitled Availability of Grant Funds for Fiscal Year 2009. The information concerning the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program FY 2010 competition, which appears in the program listing for the National Ocean Service, contained a reference to an incorrect fiscal year. The correct fiscal year for the program is FY 2009.
As published in the January 2, 2009 Federal Register, applications must be received and validated by Grants.gov on or before 6 p.m. EST on March 31, 2009. Applications submitted through Grants.gov will have a date and time indication on them.

In the Federal Register of January 2, 2009 (74 FR 72, 82), the document entitled Availability of Grant Funds for Fiscal Year 2009 contained an error in the National Ocean Service's entry for its Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program FY 2010 competition. The Funding Availability section of the solicitation incorrectly referenced FY 2010. This notice corrects this error. The forth sentence of the first paragraph of the “Funding Availability” section is corrected to read:
“The FY 2009 President's Request for the program is $15 million.”
All other information and requirements of the January 2, 2009 solicitation remain unchanged.
Administrative Procedure Act
Prior notice and an opportunity for public comment are not required by the Administrative Procedure Act 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 is not required and has not been prepared.Start Signature
