Economic Development Assistance Programs (EDAP).— EDA
investments are focused in six broad development assistance
programs, which include: Economic Adjustment Assistance,
Planning, Technical Assistance, Public Works and Infrastructure, 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 Indian Tribes, and Alaska Native Villages to accomplish its mission. In 2009, 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 our Nation’s most distressed communities.

timely national statistical profiles of every sector of the U.S.
economy. The 2009 Budget includes an initiative to close the
current gap in service sector coverage. Expanding coverage
of the service sector is critical to improving the accuracy
of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and other principal economic indicators.
Current demographic statistics.—These programs provide
social and economic information on a monthly, quarterly, and
annual basis to inform effective public and private decisionmaking. The budget requests increased funding to operate
the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) at
a 45,000 household sample size that will be re-established
in late 2008, and to incorporate improvements developed
through reengineering efforts. The Budget also includes additional funds to maintain the accuracy and relevance of Current Population Survey (CPS) data.
Survey of program dynamics.—This program is supported
by mandatory appropriations provided by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996, as reauthorized by the 109th Congress, to provide data necessary to
determine the impact of welfare provisions.
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 support data collection by
the Current Population Survey (CPS) on the number of lowincome 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.
Performance measures and program information.—A detailed presentation and description of each program, and related performance outcomes, measures, and targets is found
in the department’s 2009 budget submission.

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. 2009 is the fifth year of the six-year 2007
Economic Census cycle. This request reflects the transition
from intensive data collection and centralized processing activities at the National Processing Center to Headquarters
processing including editing, summary data review, and product preparation associated with data dissemination of results
from the core census programs. The bureau will also begin
to release economic census data in 2009.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

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. 2009 is the last year in the
five-year cycle of the 2007 Census of Governments.
2010 decennial census program.—As mandated in the U.S.
Constitution, the decennial census provides the official population counts for determining the allocation to States of seats
in the U.S. House of Representatives and the data used by
States to determine how the districts are defined for those
seats. Since 2001, the Census Bureau has been engaged in
an effort to reengineer the decennial census to reduce operational risk, improve accuracy, provide more relevant data,
and contain costs. In 2009, the outcome of these efforts will
begin to be realized as early nationwide operations begin.
Major activities for which funding is requested include: opening and staffing of 150 local census offices, verifying and
geo-coding street addresses, finalizing major information technology systems, printing hundreds of millions of questionnaires and other forms, developing a national advertising
strategy, and hiring regional and headquarters staff to oversee field activities. The Census Bureau will also continue
to conduct the American Community Survey, the replacement
for the long-form.
Performance measures and program information.—A detailed presentation and description of each program, and related performance outcomes, measures, and targets is found
in the department’s 2009 budget submission.

Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).—BEA’s mission is to
promote the understanding of the U.S. economy by providing
the most timely, relevant, and accurate economic accounts
data in an objective and cost-effective manner. BEA’s economic statistics are among the Nation’s most closely watched
and provide a comprehensive picture of the U.S. economy;
they affect decisions related to interest and exchange rates,
tax and budget projections, business investment plans, and
the allocation of over $200 billion in federal funds, including
programs such as Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for
Needy Families (TANF), among others. BEA prepares national, regional, industry and international accounts that
present essential information on such issues as economic
growth, regional economic development, inter-industry relationships and the Nation’s position in the world economy.
The 2009 Budget proposes two initiatives to significantly improve BEA’s measurement of two key sectors of the U.S.
economy.
More accurately measuring health care.—Health care spending has doubled over the last 10 years and is now 16 percent
of the gross domestic product (GDP). This Budget includes
funding to develop a more accurate measure of the health
care sector in GDP and create a supplemental account that
provides detailed information on the expenditures of the
health care industry and the costs of treating specific diseases.
Improved measurement of research and development.—Over
the last few decades, intangible investments like research
and development (R&D) have become a critical component
of the Nation’s economy. The 2009 Budget includes an initiative to begin incorporating R&D investments into gross domestic product (GDP) and the other national accounts.
Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) Policy support.—ESA headquarters conducts economic research and policy analysis directly in support of the Secretary of Commerce.
ESA also provides 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.
Performance measures and program information.—A detailed presentation and description of each program, and related performance outcomes, measures, and targets is found
in the department’s 2009 budget submission.

Trade Promotion and the U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service,
Import Administration, Manufacturing and Services, Market
Access and Compliance, and Executive Direction and Administration. The 2009 Budget includes a new group within the

by the imposition of countervailing duties.
Performance measures.—A detailed presentation of the performance outcomes, measures, and targets is found in the
department’s 2009 budget submission.

social, and environmental needs.
NOAA executes activities to achieve its mission through
the following six line offices:
National Ocean Service (NOS).—NOS programs work to
promote safe navigation; assess the health of coastal and marine resouces and respond to natural and human-induced
threats; and preserve the coastal ocean environment. The
Budget increases funding in support of the Integrated Ocean
Observing System, maritime commerce (e.g., mapping and
PORTS), and the removal of marine debris.
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. The Budget continues to support the reauthorized Magnuson-Stevens Act
through increased funding to rebuild, recover, and conserve

major fish stocks and protected species, promote market-based
management approaches, improve recreational fisheries data
collection, reduce bycatch of protected living marine resources,
and discourage illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU)
fishing.
Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR).—OAR
programs provide environmental research and technology for
improving NOAA weather and air quality warnings and forecasts, climate predictions, and marine services. To accomplish
these goals, OAR supports a network of scientists in its Federal research laboratories, universities, and cooperative institutes and partnership programs. The Budget provides increased support for developing an integrated drought early
warning system as well as utilizing unmanned aerial vehicles
in weather and climate forecasts.
National Weather Service (NWS).—NWS programs provide
timely and accurate meterorological, hydrologic, and oceanographic warnings and forecasts to ensure the safety of the
population, minimize property losses, and improve the economic productivity of the Nation. NWS is also responsible
for issuing operational climate forecasts for the United States,
which are used by agriculture and other industries. The budget provides increases for forecasts of aviation weather and
wind profiling and forecasts of hurricanes and assocated
storm surge.
National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information
Service (NESDIS).—NESDIS programs operate polar-orbiting
and geostationary environmental satellites and collect and
archive 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, planning of future
fleet modernization, and technical and management support
for NOAA-wide activities.
Foreign Fishing Observer Fund.—Ths fund is financed
through collections from foreign vessel owners who fish within
the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. Fund balances can be
made available through annual appropriations for use by the
Secretary of Commerce to pay the salaries aboard foreign
fishing vessels. The observers collect fishery management
data and monitor compliance with U.S. fishery laws. No new
appropriations are proposed for this account as unobligated
balances are sufficient to provide observer coverage aboard
foreign vessels fishing within the U.S. Exclusive Economic
Zone.
Performance measures.—A detailed listing of performance
outcomes, measures, and targets is found in the department’s
2009 budget.

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.

This program provides compensation to commercial fishermen for damages to or loss of fishing gear related to oil
and gas exploration, development, and production on the
Outer Continental Shelf. The fund is supported by assessments to holders of leases, permits, easements, and rights
of way in areas of the Outer Continental Shelf. No new funds
are proposed for this account in 2009; remaining unobligated
balances are sufficient to carry out this program for the year.

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 patents and trademarks; the 2009 Budget requests
a program level of $2,075 million for USPTO and full access
for the agency to its fee collections. Legislation restructuring
and increasing patent fees was enacted for 2005 and 2006
and subsequently extended through 2008. The Budget requests an extension of these provisions through 2009.
Patent program.—Resources requested in 2009 will be used
to fund additional patent examiner staff workload; continue
the implementation of e-Government to more efficiently process patent applications; competitively source the classification
and reclassification functions currently performed by patent
examiners; continue retention incentives to retain a highly
qualified and productive workforce; and to improve patent
practices worldwide. These resources will help optimize patent
quality and timeliness.
Trademark program.—The 2009 Budget provides resources
to fund increased staffing levels and the expansion of e-Government to achieve a fully electronic workflow. In addition,
resources will be used to improve trademark practices domestically and worldwide, thereby optimizing trademark quality
and timeliness.
Performance measures.—A detailed presentation of the performance outcomes, measures, and targets is found in
USPTO’s 2009 budget submission.

TECHNICAL RESEARCH

AND

The mission of the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) is to develop and promote measurement,
standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate
trade, and improve the quality of life. To carry out its mission,
NIST has an intramural research program made up of laboratories and technical programs and national research facilities.
NIST also manages the Baldrige National Quality Program.
As part of the President’s 10-year American Competitiveness Initiative to significantly increase Federal funding for
basic research in the physical sciences, NIST will target key
investments that promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness, including, among other things: expanding NIST’s
neutron facility to aid in characterizing novel materials in
high-growth research fields; improving nanotechnology manufacturing capabilities; enhancing innovation in the biosciences
through measurement and standards development related to
complex life systems; increasing communications capabilities
through research in optical technologies; and enhancing cyber
security by developing infrastructure needed to respond to
emerging online threats.

SERVICES

For necessary expenses of the National Institute of Standards and
Technology, ø$440,517,000¿ $535,000,000, to remain available until
expended, of which not to exceed ø$6,580,000¿ $12,300,000 may be

The Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Fund,
created by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, receives offsetting receipts from the auction of licenses to use electromagnetic spectrum recovered from analog television signals
to be discontinued in February 2009, and provides funding
for several one-time programs from these receipts. The Act,
as amended, specifies that recovered spectrum, aside from
24 megahertz dedicated to public safety use, will be auctioned
by the Federal Communications Commission in 2008 and
identifies the distribution of revenue for deficit reduction and
program purposes as identified below. Receipts exceeding
amounts specified for authorized programs will be returned
to the general fund of the Treasury. The Act also provides
borrowing authority to the Department of Commerce to commence specified programs prior to the availability of auction
receipts. Amounts borrowed from the Treasury will be returned without interest upon the availability of auction revenue.
Digital-to-Analog Converter Box Program.—To assist consumers during the transition from analog to digital television,
coupons will be provided, upon request, a maximum of two
per qualifying household, to be used to offset the cost of
digital-to-analog television converter boxes. Coupons may be
requested between January 1, 2008, and March 31, 2009,
and will expire three months after issuance.
Public Safety Interoperable Communications.—Grants have
been awarded in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security to public safety agencies to assist efforts to
make their communications systems interoperable (i.e., capable of sharing voice and data signals). Public safety agencies
are required to provide not less than twenty percent of the
costs of acquiring and deploying the interoperable communications systems funded under this program from non-Federal
sources. The program awarded the grants by September 30,
2007, in accordance with the Call Home Act of 2006 and
will administer the grants to completion.
New York City 9/11 Digital Transition.—Federal assistance
has been provided to the Metropolitan Television Alliance
of New York City for the design and deployment of a temporary digital television broadcast system until a permanent
facility atop the planned Freedom Tower is constructed. The
project is scheduled to be completed by September 30, 2008.
Assistance to Low-Power Television Stations.—Eligible lowpower stations may receive compensation for a digital-to-analog conversion device to convert the incoming digital signal
of a full-power television station to analog for transmission
on the low-power station’s analog channel. Applications will
be accepted and awarded through February 17, 2009. Subsequent to the completion of the digital-to-analog conversion
program, eligible low-power stations may receive reimbursement to upgrade their television signals from analog to digital
format.
National and Remote Alert Programs.—Title VI of the SAFE
Port Act of 2006 specified the use of funds in these programs
and requires the following: that public and educational broadcasters modify their towers to enable the distribution of targeted alerts by commercial mobile service providers, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security; the establishment of a research program to support the development of technologies to increase the number of commercial
mobile service devices that receive emergency alerts; and the

ministration (NOAA) of a grant program for outdoor alerting
technologies in remote communities to enable receipt of emergency alerts.
National Tsunami Warning Program.—A tsunami warning
system will be implemented by NOAA using a variety of
communications technologies capable of alerting the public
to emergency situations, including tsunamis and coastal vulnerability.
ENHANCE 911.—Funds will be used to implement the ENHANCE 911 Act of 2004, which created a joint effort of the
Department of Commerce and the Department of Transportation to assist State and local governments in providing caller location identification capabilities for emergency 911 services and established a matching grant program for that purpose.
Essential Air Service.—Funds will be provided to the Department of Transportation for the Essential Air Service program.
