The NOAA Fisheries Service Pacific Islands Regional Office (PIRO) is responsible for the conservation, development and management of marine resources in the U.S. Territorial Sea and the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) throughout the Pacific including Hawaii, American Samoa, the Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The Federal Programs Office administers a broad range of financial assistance and program partnership activities directed at supporting the core mission of NOAA Fisheries Service.

The Federal Programs Office is located at the Pacific Islands Regional Office in Honolulu, Hawaii. Federal Program Officers (FPOs) ensure the timely processing of grants and cooperative agreements, from the initial solicitation through post award management. Technical assistance is provided by staff from both the PIRO and the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC). FPOs work closely with the NOAA Grants Management Division (GMD), technical monitors and grant recipients throughout the award to facilitate the successful completion of project objectives.

The Federal Programs Office supports the NOAA Fisheries Service mission through both competitive and noncompetitive grants and cooperative agreements. Grant programs funded through PIRO during fiscal year 2012 include: Pacific Islands Region Marine Turtle Management Program, Partnerships for the Marine Mammal Response and Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery Program, Marine Education and Training Mini Grants Program, Western Pacific Fishery Management Council, Cooperative Institute Program, and miscellaneous other projects that meet criteria under the 2012 Broad Agency Announcement.
