Title: Wildlife and Fisheries; Clean Vessel Act Grant Program; Financial Assistance  

We propose to update regulations that tell States how to apply for and receive grants from the Clean Vessel Act program. The program provides funds for States to install facilities for boaters to dispose of septic waste from recreational vessels with holding tanks, and to provide information and education on the use, location, and benefits of pump-out facilities. The rule would codify guidelines from 1994 and combine them with revised regulations from 1994 and 1997. The revisions would reflect changes in the U.S. Code, improve program management and understanding, and update information based on experience and current technology. The Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council, a group chartered by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, published a June 2008 report that identified 30 recommendations for improving the program in the areas of administration, reporting, funding, project maintenance, and operation.
