(a) A State fish and wildlife agency may receive Federal grant funds through either:

(b) An agency must use the following procedures to receive a reimbursement or an advance of funds:
(1) Request funds through an electronic payment system designated by the Regional Director; or
(2) Request funds on a standard form for that purpose only if the agency is unable to use the electronic payment system.
