Due to confusing legislative language dating back to 1972, the poverty guidelines have sometimes been mistakenly referred to as the ‘‘OMB’’ (Office of Management and Budget) poverty guidelines or poverty line. In fact, OMB has never issued the guidelines; the guidelines are issued each year by the Department of Health and Human Services. The poverty guidelines may be formally referenced as ‘‘the poverty guidelines updated periodically in the Federal Register by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the authority of 42 U.S.C. 9902(2).’’ Some programs use a percentage multiple of the guidelines (for example, 125 percent or 185 percent of the guidelines), as noted in relevant authorizing legislation or program regulations. Non-Federal organizations that use the poverty guidelines under their own authority in non-federallyfunded activities can choose to use a percentage multiple of the guidelines such as 125 percent or 185 percent. The poverty guidelines do not make a distinction between farm and non-farm families, or between aged and non-aged units. (Only the Census Bureau poverty thresholds have separate figures for aged and non-aged one-person and twoperson units.) Note that this notice does not provide definitions of such terms as ‘‘income’’ or ‘‘family.’’ This is because there is considerable variation in how different programs that use the guidelines define these terms, traceable to the different laws and regulations that govern the various programs. Therefore, questions Contact Person for More Information: Horace M. Stiles, DDS, PhD, MPH, Designated Federal Officer, 15111 Farm Market Road, Maypearl, Texas 76064–1902, telephone 404.498.2584. The Director, Management Analysis and Services Office, has been delegated the authority to sign Federal Register notices pertaining to announcements of meetings and other committee management activities, for both CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. about how a particular program applies the poverty guidelines (e.g., Is income before or after taxes? Should a particular type of income be counted? Should a particular person be counted in the family or household unit?) should be directed to the organization that administers the program.

OMB No. 0970–0248. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting a three-year extension of the ACF–204 (Annual MOE Report). The report is used to collect descriptive program characteristics information on the programs operated by States and Territories in association with their Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs. All State and Territory expenditures claimed toward States’ and Territories’ MOE requirements must be appropriate, i.e., meet all applicable MOE requirements. The Annual MOE Report provides the ability to learn about and to monitor the nature of State and Territory expenditures used to meet State’s and Territories’ MOE requirements, and it is an important source of information about the different ways that States and Territories are using their resources to help families attain and maintain selfsufficiency. In addition, the report is used to obtain State and Territory program characteristics for ACF’s annual report to Congress, and the report serves as a useful resource to use in Congressional hearings about how TANF programs are evolving, in assessing State the Territory MOE expenditures, and in assessing the need for legislative changes. Respondents: The 50 States of the United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

The guidance document provides establishments that make HCT/ P donor eligibility determinations with recommendations concerning the donor eligibility requirements contained in 21 CFR part 1271, subpart C, which became effective on May 25, 2005. The guidance applies only to certain HCT/Ps that were not regulated as HCT/Ps before May 25, 2005, and that were recovered from donors beginning on or after the May 25, 2005, and within 30 days of the date of publication of this document in the Federal Register. This guidance has an immediate implementation date because FDA has determined that prior public participation is not feasible or appropriate. In certain cases, donor retesting needs to be initiated quickly, and the availability of certain HCT/Ps may be critical to their intended recipients.
