Synopsis On October 4, 2006, Hands On filed an application for certification as an IP Relay and VRS provider eligible for compensation from the Interstate TRS Fund (Fund) pursuant to the IP Relay and VRS provider certification rules. See Telecommunications Relay Services for Individuals with Hearing and Speech Disabilities, Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration, CG Docket No. 03– 123, FCC 05–203 (December 12, 2005); published at 70 FR 76208, December 23, 2005 (2005 VRS Certification Order); 47 CFR 64.605(a)(2) of the Commission’s rules. On November 21, 2006, Hands On submitted a supplement to its application for certification. Hands On, Inc., Supplement to Application for Certification as a VRS and IP Relay Provider of Hands On Video Relay Services, Inc., CG Docket No. 03–123 (November 21, 2006) (Hands On Supplement). Hands On’s application is granted, subject to the conditions noted below. On December 12, 2005, the Commission released an order adopting new rules permitting carriers desiring to offer IP Relay and/or VRS and receive payment from the Fund to seek certification as a provider eligible for compensation from the Fund. 2005 VRS Certification Order. The rules require entities seeking such certification to submit documentation to the Commission setting forth, in narrative form: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Mar 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 (i) A description of the forms of TRS to be provided (i.e., VRS and/or IP Relay); (ii) a description of how the provider will meet all non-waived mandatory minimum standards applicable to each form of TRS offered; (iii) a description of the provider’s procedures for ensuring compliance with all applicable TRS rules; (iv) a description of the provider’s complaint procedures; (v) a narrative describing any areas in which the provider’s service will differ from the applicable mandatory minimum standards; (vi) a narrative establishing that services that differ from the mandatory minimum standards do not violate applicable mandatory minimum standards; (vii) demonstration of status as a common carrier; and (viii) a statement that the provider will file annual compliance reports demonstrating continued compliance with these rules. 47 CFR 64.605(a)(2) of the Commission’s rules. The rules further provide that after review of the submitted documentation, the Commission shall certify that the provider of IP Relay and VRS is eligible for compensation from the Fund if the Commission determines that the certification documentation: (i) Establishes that the provision of IP Relay and VRS * * * will meet or exceed all non-waived operational, technical, and functional minimum standards contained in § 64.604 of the Commission’s rules; (ii) establishes that the IP Relay and VRS * * * provider makes available adequate procedures and remedies for ensuring compliance with the requirements of this section and the mandatory minimum standards contained in § 64.604 of the Commission’s rules, including that it makes available for TRS users informational materials on complaint procedures sufficient for users to know the proper procedures for filing complaints; and (iii) Where the TRS service differs from the mandatory minimum standards contained in § 64.604 of the Commission’s rules, the IP Relay and VRS * * * provider establishes that its service does not violate applicable mandatory minimum standards. 47 CFR 64.605(b)(2) of the Commission’s rules. The Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (Bureau) has reviewed the Hands On Application and Hands On Supplement pursuant to these rules. The Bureau concludes that Hands On has adequately demonstrated that its provision of IP Relay and VRS will meet or exceed all operational, technical, and functional TRS standards set forth in 47 CFR 64.604 of the Commission’s rules; that it makes available adequate procedures and remedies for ensuring PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10215 compliance with applicable Commission rules; and that to the extent Hands On’s service differs from the mandatory minimum standards, the service does not violate the rules. The Bureau notes that the Commission has adopted a declaratory ruling requiring the interoperability of VRS equipment and service. See Telecommunications Relay Services for Individuals with Hearing and Speech Disabilities, CG Docket No. 03–123, Declaratory Ruling and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, FCC 06–57 (May 9, 2006), published at 71 FR 30818, May 31, 2006 and 71 FR 30848, May 31, 2006. The Bureau conditions this grant of certification upon compliance with that order. See also 47 CFR 64.605(e)(2) of the Commission’s rules (Commission may require certified providers to submit documentation demonstrating compliance with the mandatory minimum standards). Further, Hands On must file an annual report with the Commission evidencing that they are in compliance with § 64.604 of the Commission’s rules. See 47 CFR 64.605(g) of the Commission’s rules. The first such report shall be due one year after December 22, 2006, and subsequent reports shall be due each year thereafter. This certification shall remain in effect for a period of five years from the release date of December 22, 2006. See 47 CFR 64.605(c)(2) of the Commission’s rules. Within ninety days prior to the expiration of this certification, Hands On may apply for renewal of its IP Relay and VRS certification by filing documentation in accordance with the Commission’s rules.

Background and Brief Description The purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility and impact of New Beginnings: A Discussion Guide for Living Well with Diabetes, a tool developed by the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) to accompany an independently produced film entitled, The Debilitator. This important film highlights the myriad challenges African Americans encounter with diabetes self-management and presents strategies to help people with diabetes to gain control with help from their family and physicians. In addition to raising awareness and increasing knowledge, the discussion guide helps facilitate conversations that deepen viewers’ understanding of key issues raised in the film and hopefully motivate participants to engage in desired behavior change such as improved diet, visiting a doctor or talking to family members or friends about the importance of diabetes selfmanagement. To evaluate the utility and impact of the discussion guide, data will be collected in several ways: (1) Thirty-six facilitators will use the New Beginnings discussion guide to lead two-hour E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
