Title: Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program; National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program 

We periodically update all of the regulations for which the FWS Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program is responsible. The National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program regulations were last revised in 2002. Since that time, cost principles, ranking criteria, and grants administration have evolved, and regulations must reflect those changes. The rulemaking process will help FWS communicate important program changes to the public and solicit input on how best to address areas where we have discretion on statute implementation. We are working internally and with our partners to explore possible changes that would clarify one or more of the criteria used to rank applications for financial assistance. Any changes made will improve transparency, enhance the merit review process, and be done through consensus.
