Proactive Species Conservation Program: The Proactive Species Conservation Program supports voluntary conservation efforts designed to conserve marine and anadromous species before they reach the point at which listing as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) becomes necessary. Such proactive conservation efforts can serve as an efficient, non-regulatory, and cost-effective means of managing potentially at-risk species. To raise awareness of potentially at-risk species and to foster their proactive conservation, the NMFS created a `species of concern' list in April 2004 (69 FR 19975). `Species of concern' are species that are potentially at risk of becoming threatened or endangered or may potentially require protections under the ESA, yet for which sufficient data are lacking. The species-of- concern status carries no procedural or regulatory protections under the ESA. The list of species of concern and descriptions of each species are available at ). Under this solicitation, the NMFS is seeking to provide federal assistance, in the form of grants or cooperative agreements, to support conservation efforts for the current list of marine and anadromous species of concern. Any state, territorial, Tribal or local entity that has regulatory or management authority over one or more species of concern is eligible to apply to this grant program. This document describes how to submit proposals for funding in fiscal year (FY) 2007 and how the NMFS will determine which proposals will be funded.
