SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Authorized by 42 U.S.C. 701(a)(3), the HTPC is a grant program funded and administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). Its purpose is to stimulate innovative community-based programs that employ prevention strategies to promote access to health care for children and their families nationwide by providing grant funds to implement a new or enhance an existing child health initiative. Currently, there are 58 HTPC funded projects. In fiscal year (FY) 2005 48 projects are continuing grantees and 10 are newly funded. Since the inception of this grant program in 1989, the HTPC has issued a programmatic requirement in its guidance that grant applicants must demonstrate the capability to meet cost participation goals by securing nonFederal matching funds and/or in-kind resources for the second through fifth years of the project. One of the key goals of this initiative is that funded programs are to be sustainable beyond the 5-year E:\FR\FM\27DEP1.SGM 27DEP1 76436 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 247 / Tuesday, December 27, 2005 / Proposed Rules Federal funding period. In 1999, a formal evaluation of the HTPC The Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program in Review: Analysis and Findings of a Descriptive Survey was completed, and the authors concluded that the required match fosters long-term sustainability and leveraging of community resources. There was a 70 percent sustainability rate for those projects with activities that were sustained after the Federal funding period. This NPRM proposes to formally introduce a cost participation component to the HTPC grant program, thus requiring its grantees to contribute non-Federal matching funds and/or inkind resources in years 2 through 5 of the 5-year project period equal to two times the amount of the Federal Grant Award or such lesser amount determined by the Secretary for good cause shown. The non-Federal matching funds and/or in-kind resources must come from non-Federal funds, including, but not limited to, individuals, corporations, foundations, in-kind resources, or State and local agencies. Documentation of matching funds would be required (i.e., specific sources, funding level, in-kind contributions). Reimbursement for services provided to an individual under a State plan under Title XIX will not be deemed ‘‘non-Federal matching funds’’ for the purposes of this provision. bjneal on PROD1PC70 with PROPOSALS Request for Comments The Secretary invites public comment as to the advisability of including a cost participation/matching component to the HTPC.

Economic and Regulatory Impact Executive Order 12866—Regulatory Planning and Review HRSA has examined the economic implications of this proposed rule as required by Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 12866 directs agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). Executive Order 12866 classifies a rule as significant if it meets any one of a number of specified conditions, including: having an annual effect on the economy of $100 million, adversely affecting a sector of the economy in a material way, adversely affecting competition, or adversely affecting jobs. A regulation is also considered a significant regulatory action if it raises novel legal or policy issues. HRSA concludes that this proposed rule is a significant regulatory action under the Executive Order since it raises novel legal and policy issues under Section 3(f)(4). HRSA concludes, however, that this proposed rule does not meet the significance threshold of $100 million effect on the economy in any one year under Section 3(f)(1). HRSA requests comments regarding this determination, and invites commenters to submit any relevant data that will assist the Agency in estimating the impact of this rulemaking. Impact of the New Rule Inclusion of this rule will greatly enhance grant recipients’ ability to achieve the HTPC goal/performance measure of program sustainability beyond the 5-year Federal funding period.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Authorized by 42 U.S.C. 701(a)(3), the HTPC is a grant program 
funded and administered by the Health Resources and Services 
Administration's (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). Its 
purpose is to stimulate innovative community-based programs that employ 
prevention strategies to promote access to health care for children and 
their families nationwide by providing grant funds to implement a new 
or enhance an existing child health initiative. Currently, there are 58 
HTPC funded projects. In fiscal year (FY) 2005 48 projects are 
continuing grantees and 10 are newly funded.
    Since the inception of this grant program in 1989, the HTPC has 
issued a programmatic requirement in its guidance that grant applicants 
must demonstrate the capability to meet cost participation goals by 
securing non-Federal matching funds and/or in-kind resources for the 
second through fifth years of the project. One of the key goals of this 
initiative is that funded programs are to be sustainable beyond the 5-
year

Federal funding period. In 1999, a formal evaluation of the HTPC The 
Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program in Review: Analysis 
and Findings of a Descriptive Survey was completed, and the authors 
concluded that the required match fosters long-term sustainability and 
leveraging of community resources. There was a 70 percent 
sustainability rate for those projects with activities that were 
sustained after the Federal funding period.
    This NPRM proposes to formally introduce a cost participation 
component to the HTPC grant program, thus requiring its grantees to 
contribute non-Federal matching funds and/or in-kind resources in years 
2 through 5 of the 5-year project period equal to two times the amount 
of the Federal Grant Award or such lesser amount determined by the 
Secretary for good cause shown. The non-Federal matching funds and/or 
in-kind resources must come from non-Federal funds, including, but not 
limited to, individuals, corporations, foundations, in-kind resources, 
or State and local agencies. Documentation of matching funds would be 
required (i.e., specific sources, funding level, in-kind 
contributions). Reimbursement for services provided to an individual 
under a State plan under Title XIX will not be deemed ``non-Federal 
matching funds'' for the purposes of this provision.

Economic and Regulatory Impact

Executive Order 12866--Regulatory Planning and Review

    HRSA has examined the economic implications of this proposed rule 
as required by Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 12866 directs 
agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory 
alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory 
approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, 
environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; 
distributive impacts; and equity). Executive Order 12866 classifies a 
rule as significant if it meets any one of a number of specified 
conditions, including: having an annual effect on the economy of $100 
million, adversely affecting a sector of the economy in a material way, 
adversely affecting competition, or adversely affecting jobs. A 
regulation is also considered a significant regulatory action if it 
raises novel legal or policy issues.
    HRSA concludes that this proposed rule is a significant regulatory 
action under the Executive Order since it raises novel legal and policy 
issues under Section 3(f)(4). HRSA concludes, however, that this 
proposed rule does not meet the significance threshold of $100 million 
effect on the economy in any one year under Section 3(f)(1). HRSA 
requests comments regarding this determination, and invites commenters 
to submit any relevant data that will assist the Agency in estimating 
the impact of this rulemaking.

Impact of the New Rule

    Inclusion of this rule will greatly enhance grant recipients' 
ability to achieve the HTPC goal/performance measure of program 
sustainability beyond the 5-year Federal funding period.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    The proposed rule does not impose any new data collection 
requirements.
