Economic Development Assistance Programs (EDAP)._Economic Development Administration (EDA) investments are focused in seven broad development assistance programs, which include: Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA), Partnership Planning, Technical Assistance, Public Works, Regional Innovation Strategies Program (RISP), Research and Evaluation, and Trade Adjustment Assistance. EDA provides grants within each of these areas to generate or retain jobs, attract new industry and private sector investment, encourage business expansion, and serve as a backstop to sudden and severe economic impacts. These investments assist communities characterized by substantial and persistent unemployment levels, low income and population growth, loss of jobs, out-migration, and long-term economic deterioration. EDA works in partnership with other Federal agencies, State and local governments, regional economic development districts, public and private non-profit organizations, Native American Tribes, and Alaska Native Villages to accomplish its mission.
In 2015, EDA will continue to place funding priority on investments that drive economic growth, enhance regional competitiveness, and diversify the regional and local economy while also seeking to target funds to the Nation's most distressed communities. Specifically, EDA is focused on accelerating the transition to the 21st Century economy by supporting sustainable job growth and competitive communities throughout the United States. As part of the 2015 Budget, EDA plans to implement reforms to ensure assistance is being delivered to communities with the greatest efficiency and impact.

The activities of this appropriation provide for the collection, compilation, analysis, and publication of a broad range of current economic, demographic, and social statistics.

Current economic statistics.—These programs provide public and private sector data users with relevant, accurate, and timely national statistical profiles of every sector of the U.S. economy. The FY 2015 budget contains funding to enhance the Census Bureau's Longitudinal Business Database. These improvements will enable the database to provide more information about business innovation and entrepreneurship. Greater access to new data products will increase our understanding of the dynamics of innovation in the U.S. economy.

Current demographic statistics.—These programs conduct surveys and data analyses to provide social and economic information on monthly, quarterly, and annual bases to inform effective public and private decision-making.

Survey Development and Data Services.—This program conducts research in such areas as survey design and estimation, time series analysis, error reduction, privacy protection, and special experimental and evaluation studies.

Survey of program dynamics.—This program is supported by mandatory appropriations provided by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 to provide data necessary to determine the impact of the Act and other income security provisions on program participants.

State children's health insurance program (SCHIP).—Mandatory appropriations provided by the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children's Health Insurance Program Balanced Budget Refinement Act of 1999. The program is designed to support data collection by the Current Population Survey (CPS) on the number of low-income children who do not have health insurance coverage. Data from this enhanced survey are used in the formula to allocate funds to States under the SCHIP program.

This appropriation funds legislatively mandated periodic economic and demographic censuses and other authorized activities. Major programs include the five-year economic census and census of governments, and the decennial census. In addition, other programs provide annual population estimates, updated survey sample designs, and bureau-wide geographic and data processing systems and support.

Economic Census._The economic census is integral to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) estimates of gross domestic product (GDP) and industry inputs and outputs. It provides decision-makers with comprehensive, detailed, and authoritative facts about the structure and functioning of the U.S. economy. Program activity in 2015 will focus on analysis, release, and dissemination of the 2012 Economic Census products. Planning will also begin on the 2017 Economic Census.

Census of Governments._This program is also integral to the BEA's estimates of GDP. It is the only source of comprehensive and uniformly classified data on the economic activities of more than 90,000 State and local governments, which account for about 12 percent of GDP and nearly 16 percent of the U.S. workforce. Program activities in 2015 include the development of a 2017 Census of Governments project plan; conducting workshops and conferences with key stakeholders to discuss improvements; and preparing and delivering data products from the finance component from information collected in the 2012 Census of Governments.

Intercensal demographic estimates._In years between decennial censuses, this program develops annual estimates of the population of the Nation, States, metropolitan areas, counties and functioning governmental units. These data are used for a variety of purposes including the allocation of hundreds of billions of dollars in Federal funds, as controls for a variety of federally sponsored surveys, as denominators for vital statistics and other health and economic indicators, and for a variety of Federal, State, and private program planning needs.
2020 Decennial Census.—FY 2015 is now the final year of funding for the early research, planning, development and testing for the 2020 Census after 2013 was slowed by the effects of sequestration, and is also the first year of funding operations and infrastructure investment to incorporate the results of the research and testing program. The program will focus on completing research and testing needed to make fundamental design decisions required to contain the cost of the census. The program will use information generated from the last three years of applied research to begin operational design, development, and system testing for the actual conduct of the 2020 Census. By the end of fiscal year 2015, preliminary design decisions for the 2020 Census will be made. Consequently, the completion of the early research and testing work in FY 2015 is the principal opportunity to prove design changes that can fundamentally change the way the 2020 Census is conducted. The President's request also provides the Census Bureau resources to strengthen program management and systems engineering and integrate best practices that are critical to the effective management of the myriad systems and operations required for the census.
The funding for the American Community Survey (ACS) is part of the 2020 Decennial Program. Starting in 2005, the ACS improved upon the Decennial Census long form by providing important information to the nation on an annual basis instead of just once every ten years. The ACS is a monthly questionnaire sent to a small percentage of the population across the nation. The survey collects detailed information on the characteristics of the population and housing units on an ongoing basis in all counties throughout the U.S. and continues to be the only Census Bureau population-based survey that collects information in many of these areas. ACS data are released annually.

Demographic Surveys Sample Design._The demographic surveys sample redesign activity updates the samples for the major recurring household surveys, to reflect America's mobile population and complex socioeconomic environment.

Geographic Support._The goal of the geographic support program is to provide address lists, address and geographic reference files, delineated geographic areas, maps, and associated processing systems needed to meet the geographic requirements of all Census Bureau programs. In FY 2015, the President's Budget contains funding to restore the Boundary and Annexation Survey, which was suspended for FY 2014.

Data Processing Systems._The objective of the Data Processing Systems activity is to provide day-to-day information technology infrastructure, systems and support for all program areas of the Census Bureau. The FY 2015 budget request includes an initiative to support a Census Enterprise Data Collection and Processing Initiative which will create an integrated an standardized "system of systems" that will replace unique, survey-specific systems with an enterprise solution.

Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA)._The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), a principal Federal statistical agency, promotes a better understanding of the U.S. economy by providing timely, relevant, and accurate economic accounts data in an objective and cost-effective manner. BEA's national, industry, regional, and international economic statistics present crucial information on key issues such as U.S. economic growth, regional economic development, inter-industry relationships, and the Nation's position in the world economy. These key statistics provide a comprehensive picture of the U.S. economy and affect decisions related to interest and exchange rates, tax and budget projections, and business investment plans. The statistics are used by Federal, State, and local governments for budget development and projections and to allocate over $300 billion in Federal funds. The statistics are also used by the American public to follow and understand the performance of the Nation's economy. Some of the Bureau's widely used statistical measures include gross domestic product (GDP), personal income and outlays, corporate profits, GDP by state and by metropolitan area, balance of payments, and GDP by industry. BEA's strategic vision is to remain the world's most respected producer of economic accounts. The 2015 Budget proposes an initiative which would create a new small business satellite account to provide much needed expanded data on the small business sector of the economy.

Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) Policy support._ESA headquarters conducts economic research and policy analysis in direct support of the Secretary of Commerce. ESA also provides management oversight of the Census Bureau and BEA. In addition, ESA provides economic and statistical data and analyses to other Federal agencies, individuals, and firms requesting such information through reimbursable funding. The Census Bureau and BEA reimburse ESA headquarters for certain administrative, financial, and policy services.

To emphasize the agency's role in the complementary missions of export and business investment promotion, using both international advocacy and support for U.S. businesses at home, the Budget proposes to rename the agency to the International Trade and Investment Administration (ITIA). The ITIA improves the competitiveness of U.S. industry, promotes trade and investment, and ensures fair trade and compliance with trade laws and agreements. The ITIA is comprised of four program units: Industry and Analysis, Enforcement and Compliance, Global Markets, and Executive Direction and Administration.

The Administration proposes $497 million for the ITIA. This funding will allow the ITIA to increase its export promotion and trade enforcement efforts in key, growing markets abroad, as well as support the activities of SelectUSA, which will promote the United States as a premier investment destination and help state and local governments attract investment capital to create and support jobs.

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) advances U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives by administering and enforcing controls on the export of sensitive goods and technologies. BIS also enforces antiboycott laws, monitors the economic viability of the U.S. defense industry, and assists U.S. companies in complying with certain international arms agreements.

The 2015 Budget continues to provide for positions that are critical to the Adminstration's Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, which will fundamentally reform the U.S. export control system. The ECR Initiative is designed to enhance U.S. national security and strengthen the United States' ability to counter threats such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment and to conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs.

NOAA executes activities to achieve its mission through six line offices:

National Ocean Service (NOS)._NOS programs work to promote safe navigation; assess the health of coastal and marine resources and respond to natural and human-induced threats; and conserve the coastal ocean environment.

National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS)._NMFS programs provide for the management and conservation of the Nation's living marine resources including fish stocks, marine mammals, and endangered species and their habitats within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR)._OAR programs provide climate, weather, air chemistry, ocean and coastal research and technology with applications across NOAA's mission. To accomplish these goals, OAR supports a network of scientists in its Federal research laboratories, universities, and cooperative institutes and partnership programs.

National Weather Service (NWS)._NWS programs provide timely and accurate meteorological, hydrologic, and oceanographic warnings and forecasts to ensure the safety of the population, minimize property losses, and improve the economic productivity of the Nation.

National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS)._NESDIS operates polar orbiting and geostationary satellites, and collects and archives global environmental data and information for distribution to private and public sector users.

Program Support._Program Support provides management and administrative support for NOAA, including acquisition and grant administration, budget, accounting functions, and human resources. Through the Office of Marine and Aviation Operations (OMAO), it provides aircraft and marine data acquisition fleet repair and maintenance and operations that provide technical and management support for NOAA-wide activities.

Foreign Fishing Observer Fund._The Foreign Fishing Observer Fund is financed through fees collected from owners and operators of foreign fishing vessels fishing within the U.S. EEZ (such fishing requires a permit issued under the Magnuson-Stevens Act). The fund is used by NOAA to pay salaries, administrative costs, data editing and entry costs, and other costs incurred in placing observers aboard foreign fishing vessels.

Under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Act Section 304(d)(2)(A), NMFS must collect a fee to recover the incremental costs of management, data collection, and enforcement of Limited Access Privilege (LAP) Programs. Funds collected under this authority are deposited into the Limited Access System Administrative Fund. Fees shall not exceed three percent of the ex-vessel value of fish harvested under any such program, and shall be collected at either the time of the landing, filing of a landing report, or sale of such fish during a fishing season or in the last quarter of the calendar year in which the fish is harvested. The Limited Access Administration Fund shall be available, without appropriation or fiscal year limitation, only for the purposes of administering the central registry system and administering and implementing the Magnuson-Stevens Act in the fishery in which the fees were collected. Sums in the fund that are not currently needed for these purposes shall be kept on deposit or invested in obligations of, or guaranteed by the U.S. Also, in establishing a LAP program, a Regional Council can consider, and may provide, if appropriate, an auction system or other program to collect royalties for the initial or any subsequent distribution of allocations. If an auction system is developed, revenues from these royalties are deposited in the Limited Access System Administration Fund.

The Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund account was established in 2000 to augment State, tribal, and local programs to conserve and restore sustainable Pacific salmon populations and their habitats. Through 2013, over $1.0 billion has been provided to the States of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Idaho and to the Pacific Coastal and Columbia River Tribes to supplement State and Federal programs and promote the development of partnerships among Federal, State, tribal, and local governments to conserve salmon. The States and Tribes have used these funds for restoring salmon and steelhead populations that are listed as threatened or endangered, or identified by a State as at risk of such listing; maintaining populations necessary for exercise of tribal treaty fishing rights or native subsistence fishing; or restoring and conserving Pacific coastal salmon and steelhead habitat.

This account includes amounts necessary to finance the cost of Tricare retirement health care benefits accrued by the active duty members of the NOAA Commissioned Corps. The Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for 2005 (P.L. 108–375) provided permanent, indefinite appropriations to finance these costs for all uniformed service members. As these costs are borne in support of NOAA's mission, they are shown as part of the NOAA discretionary total. Total obligations on behalf of active NOAA Commissioned Corps personnel include both the wages and related amounts requested for appropriation and amounts paid from the permanent, indefinite authority.

Section 311(e)(1) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to pay certain enforcement-related expenses from fines, penalties and forfeiture proceeds received for violations of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, or of any other marine resource law enforced by the Secretary. Pursuant to this authority, NOAA established an account for these receipts, the Fisheries Enforcement Asset Forfeiture Fund (AFF). Certain fines, penalties and forfeiture proceeds received by NOAA are deposited into this Fund and subsequently used to pay for certain enforcement-related expenses. When Congress authorized the AFF it was deemed appropriate to use these proceeds to offset in part the costs of administering the enforcement program. Expenses include the following: costs directly related to the storage, maintenance, and care of seized fish, vessels, or other property during a civil or criminal proceeding; reimbursement to other Federal or State agencies for enforcement related services provided pursuant to an agreement entered into with the Secretary; and other limited uses as outlined in NOAA's Asset Forfeiture Fund policy. The NMFS Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) manages the AFF, which is used by OLE and NOAA General Counsel for Enforcement and Litigation to pay for enforcement activities.

An amount equal to 30 percent of the gross receipts from customs duties on imported fishery products is transferred to the Department of Commerce annually from the Department of Agriculture. A portion of the funds is transferred to offset the appropriation requirements for fisheries research and management in the Operations, Research, and Facilities account. Any remaining funds will support the Saltonstall-Kennedy grants program for fisheries research and development projects to enhance the productivity and improve the sustainable yield of domestic marine fisheries resources.

Fishermen'S Contingency Fund

For carrying out the provisions of title IV of Public Law 95–372, not to exceed $350,000, to be derived from receipts collected pursuant to that Act, to remain available until expended. (Department of Commerce Appropriations Act, 2014.)

The Fishermen's Contingency Fund is authorized under Section 402 of Title IV of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act Amendments of 1978. NOAA compensates U.S. commercial fishermen for damage or loss of fishing gear, vessels, and resulting economic loss caused by obstructions related to oil and gas exploration, development, and production in any area of the Outer Continental Shelf. The funds used to provide this compensation are derived from fees collected by the Secretary of the Interior from the holders of leases, exploration permits, easements, or rights-of-way in areas of the Outer Continental Shelf. This activity is funded entirely through user fees. Disbursements can be made only to the extent authorized in appropriation acts.

Fisheries Disaster Assistance

[For necessary expenses associated with the mitigation of fishery disasters, $75,000,000, to remain available until expended: Provided, That funds shall be used for mitigating the effects of commercial fishery failures and fishery resource disasters as declared by the Secretary of Commerce.] (Department of Commerce Appropriations Act, 2014.)

In 2013 the North Pacific Observer Fund was established to support the restructured North Pacific Groundfish Observer Program (NPGOP). The new observer program places all vessels and processors in the groundfish and halibut fisheries off Alaska into one of two observer coverage categories: (1) a full coverage category, and (2) a partial coverage category. Vessels and processors in the full coverage category (100% observer coverage) will obtain observers by contracting directly with observer providers. Vessels and processors in the partial coverage category (less than 100% observer coverage) will no longer contract independently with an observer provider, and will be required to carry an observer when they are selected through the Observer Declare and Deploy System (ODDS). Additionally, landings from all vessels in the partial coverage category will be assessed a 1.25 percent fee on standard ex-vessel prices of the landed catch weight of groundfish and halibut to be deposited in the North Pacific Observer Fund. The fee percentage is set in regulation and will be reviewed periodically by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council after 2014. The money generated by this fee will be used to pay for observer coverage on the vessels and processors in the partial coverage category in the following year.

The Damage Assessment and Restoration Revolving Fund is authorized under Section 1012(a) of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, for the deposit of sums provided by any party or governmental entity to respond to the environmental effects of discharges of oil and other hazardous substances. Through the Revolving Fund, NOAA retains funds that are recovered through settlement or awarded by a court for the assessment and restoration of injured natural resources. NOAA also ensures deposited funds shall remain available to the trustee, without further appropriation, until expended to pay costs associated with the response, damage assessment, and restoration of natural resources.

These program functions are conducted jointly within NOAA by the Office of General Counsel, the National Ocean Service, and the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The Fisheries Finance Program (FFP) is a national loan program that makes long-term fixed-rate financing available to U.S. citizens who otherwise qualify for financing or refinancing of the construction, reconstruction, reconditioning, and, in some cases, the purchasing of fishing vessels, shoreside processing, aquaculture, and mariculture facilities. The FFP also provides fishery-wide financing to ease the transition to sustainable fisheries through its fishing capacity reduction programs and provides financial assistance in the form of loans to fishermen who fish from small vessels and entry-level fishermen to promote stability and reduce consolidation in already rationalized fisheries. Additionally, FFP can provide loans for fisheries investments of Native American Community Development Quota groups.

The FFP operates under the authority of Title XI of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, as amended; Section 303(a) of the Sustainable Fisheries Act amendments to the Magnuson-Stevens Act; and, from time to time FFP-specific legislation. The overriding guideline for all FFP financings is that they cannot contribute or be construed to contribute to an increase in existing fishing capacity.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issues patents and registers trademarks, which provide protection to inventors and businesses for their inventions and corporate and product identifications. USPTO also advises other U.S. Government agencies on intellectual property issues and promotes stronger intellectual property protections in other countries. USPTO is funded through fees that are paid to obtain and renew patents and trademarks.

Patent program._Requested funding for 2015 will be used for examining patent applications and granting patents. USPTO will continue its aggressive patent pendency reduction agenda to reduce overall pendency and backlog; continue to enhance patent quality; ensure optimal information technology service delivery to all users; improve appeal and post-grant processes; and improve intellectual property protections worldwide. The Budget supports USPTO's administrative efforts to address abusive patent litigation practices and repeats the President's call for Congress to enact legislation that promotes greater transparency in the U.S. patent system and prevents frivolous lawsuits that stifle innovation.

Trademark program._The 2015 Budget provides resources for examining trademark applications; registering trademarks; maintaining high trademark quality; ensuring optimal information technology service delivery to all users; and improving trademark practices worldwide.
