Title: Administrative Requirements Under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts; Phase 1 of 4 

We begin a process of directing State fish and wildlife agencies on how to receive funds and implement conservation projects under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act. Under these Acts, we distribute annual apportionments to States from trust funds derived from excise tax revenues and fuel taxes. We will publish an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) with a proposed rule (NPRM). This is the first of a four-phase rulemaking. This phase will introduce some more difficult topics via the ANPR, while using the NPRM to propose changes to definitions; changes regarding topics such as predator control, real property, program income, matching funds, and program symbols; and updating for 2 CFR 200. Further information, as it becomes available, will be posted at
