Central Valley Project Conservation Program and Central Valley Project Improvement Act Habitat Restoration Program: The Bureau of Reclamation, Mid-Pacific Region, intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for a Grant/Cooperative Agreement pursuant to the authority of Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, as amended, 16 U.S.C. Section 661 et seq, of 1956; the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956, 16 U.S.C 742(a-j); and the Central Valley Project Improvement Act of 1992, Public Law No. 102-575, Title XXXIV, Section 3406(b)(1). The Central Valley Project Conservation Program (CVPCP) and Central Valley Project Improvement Act Habitat Restoration Program (HRP) fund a variety of actions that improve conditions for species and habitats impacted by the Central Valley Project (CVP), excluding fish, recognizing that a balanced set of actions is needed to meet the stated objectives. The CVPCP and HRP have, however, placed emphasis on certain kinds of activities considered more critical to species' protection and recovery than others. A list of projects previously funded by the programs can be found on the programs' website: www.usbr.gov/mp/cvpcp. For FY 2013, land acquisition projects will receive the highest priority for funding. 1) Fee Title/Easement Acquisition: Protection of species or existing habitats impacted by the CVP through the purchase of fee title or conservation easements on lands where threats to these lands are significant. At least 50 percent of CVPCP and HRP funds will be targeted towards this category of activity. The CVPCP/HRP cannot fund any acquisition projects which would result in mitigation credits for the applicant or the seller. 2) Habitat Restoration: Restoration of CVP impacted habitats or species populations on lands permanently protected for conservation where restoration actions would markedly improve conditions for impacted species. The CVPCP/HRP cannot fund any restoration projects which would result in mitigation credits for the grant recipient. 3) Research: Research addressing status and habitat needs to facilitate species recovery. 4) Captive Propagation and Reintroduction: Captive propagation and reintroduction of listed species in order to increase numbers of individuals in a population. Period of Performance is from the date of issuance of the Agreement to approximately September 30, 2014. FOA R13FA20001 will be posted on the GRANTS.GOV web site, at www.grants.gov, on or about July 6, 2012. The estimated date for receipt of proposals is on October 5, 2012. The FOA must be downloaded at the above web site. No paper copy of this announcement will be distributed. Central Contractor Registration (CCR) applied to this FOA. Prospective recipients must be registered prior to award. Lack of registration in the CCR database will make an offeror ineligible for award. Information on CCR registration can be obtained via the Internet at http://www.ccr.gov. Questions concerning this FOA should be directed to Beverly S. Breen at bbreen@usbr.gov.
