CMS issued a request for additional information on March 5, 2008, which included a request for information about the State’s projected cost savings resulting from implementation of the estate recovery program. In discussions with CMS regarding submission of SPA 07–21, State officials stated that these projected cost savings estimates would require revision because the estate recovery program had in fact not yet become operational. The State did not provide additional information indicating when and to what extent it would come into compliance with sections 1902(a)(18) and 1917(b) of the Act. Thus, the State’s overall submission did not provide sufficient detail or information for us to determine that the State has an estate recovery program that meets statutory requirements. Based on the above, and after consultation with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services as required under Federal regulations at 42 CFR 430.15(c)(2), CMS disapproved Michigan Medicaid SPA 07–21. The hearing will involve the following issues: • Whether the State complied with the statutory requirements to implement an estate recovery program; and • Whether the State has provided the information necessary for CMS to determine whether the plan can be approved to serve as a basis for Federal financial participation. Section 1116 of the Act and Federal regulations at 42 CFR Part 430, establish Department procedures that provide an administrative hearing for reconsideration of a disapproval of a State plan or plan amendment. CMS is required to publish a copy of the notice to a State Medicaid agency that informs the agency of the time and place of the hearing, and the issues to be considered. If we subsequently notify the agency of additional issues that will be considered at the hearing, we will also publish that notice. Any individual or group that wants to participate in the hearing as a party must petition the presiding officer within 15 days after publication of this VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:13 Nov 12, 2008 Jkt 217001 notice, in accordance with the requirements contained at 42 CFR 430.76(b)(2). Any interested person or organization that wants to participate as amicus curiae must petition the presiding officer before the hearing begins in accordance with the requirements contained at 42 CFR 430.76(c). If the hearing is later rescheduled, the presiding officer will notify all participants. The notice to Michigan announcing an administrative hearing to reconsider the disapproval of its SPA reads as follows: Mr. Paul Reinhart, Director, Medical Services Administration, Department of Community Health, 400 South Pine, Lansing, MI 48933. Dear Mr. Reinhart: I am responding to your request for reconsideration of the decision to disapprove the Michigan State plan amendment (SPA) 07–21, which was submitted on December 28, 2007, and disapproved on September 2, 2008. Under this SPA, the State indicated that it would provide for the implementation of an estate recovery program under sections 1902(a)(18) and 1917(b) of the Social Security Act (the Act). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a request for additional information on March 5, 2008, which included a request for information about the State’s projected cost savings resulting from implementation of the estate recovery program. In discussions with CMS regarding submission of SPA 07–21, State officials stated that these projected cost savings estimates would require revision because the estate recovery program had in fact not yet become operational. The State did not provide additional information indicating when and to what extent it would come into compliance with sections 1902(a)(18) and 1917(b) of the Act. Thus, the State’s overall submission did not provide sufficient detail or information for us to determine that the State has an estate recovery program that meets statutory requirements. Based on the above, and after consultation with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services as required under Federal regulations at 42 CFR 430.15(c)(2), CMS disapproved Michigan Medicaid SPA 07–21. The issues to be considered at the hearing are: • Whether the State complied with the statutory requirements to implement an estate recovery program; and • Whether the State has provided the information necessary for CMS to determine whether the plan can be approved to serve as a basis for Federal financial participation. I am scheduling a hearing on your request for reconsideration to be held on January 6, 2009, at the CMS Chicago Regional Office, PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 233 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 600, Chicago, Illinois 60601, in order to reconsider the decision to disapprove SPA 07–21. If this date is not acceptable, we would be glad to set another date that is mutually agreeable to the parties. The hearing will be governed by the procedures prescribed by Federal regulations at 42 CFR Part 430. I am designating Mr. Benjamin Cohen as the presiding officer. If these arrangements present any problems, please contact the presiding officer at (410) 786–3169. In order to facilitate any communication which may be necessary between the parties to the hearing, please notify the presiding officer to indicate acceptability of the hearing date that has been scheduled and provide names of the individuals who will represent the State at the hearing.

Historically, ACF has found that the imposition of a matching requirement on awards under these programs results in an increased level of community VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:13 Nov 12, 2008 Jkt 217001 support and, often, a higher profile in the community. This can contribute to the success and sustainability of the project.

The administratively imposed matching requirement will apply only to new awards and their continuation awards, made under the Fiscal Year 2009 funding opportunity announcements listed in this notice. This Fiscal Year 2009 matching requirement does not represent an addition to the existing matching requirements on awards made under funding opportunity announcements issued in Fiscal Year 2008 or before. The amount and acceptable types of non-Federal resources allowed is not negotiable. However, matching may be provided as direct or indirect costs. The presence and composition of matching funds may be used as a criterion in evaluating the merits of an application during competitive review. Specific information related to the matching requirement and competitive review will be provided in each listed funding opportunity announcement. Unmatched Federal funds will be disallowed. Costs borne by matching contributions are subject to the regulations governing allowability found under 45 CFR 74.23 and 45 CFR 92.24.

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (the PRA), Federal agencies are required to publish notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, and to allow 60 days for public comment in response to the notice. This notice solicits comments on the information collection contained in the guidance for industry on formal meetings with sponsors and applicants for Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) products. DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on the collection of information by January 12, 2009. ADDRESSES: Submit electronic comments on the collection of information to http:// www.regulations.gov.

To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.

    Historically, ACF has found that the imposition of a matching 
requirement on awards under these programs results in an increased 
level of community support and, often, a higher profile in the 
community. This can contribute to the success and sustainability of the 
project. The Fiscal Year 2009 funding opportunity announcements for 
each listed program will advise applicants on the percentage of funds 
that must be contributed through non-Federal

resources, the composition of the match, and the merit of the match as 
a criterion in the competitive review. The administratively imposed 
matching requirement will apply only to new awards and their 
continuation awards, made under the Fiscal Year 2009 funding 
opportunity announcements listed in this notice. This Fiscal Year 2009 
matching requirement does not represent an addition to the existing 
matching requirements on awards made under funding opportunity 
announcements issued in Fiscal Year 2008 or before. The amount and 
acceptable types of non-Federal resources allowed is not negotiable. 
However, matching may be provided as direct or indirect costs. The 
presence and composition of matching funds may be used as a criterion 
in evaluating the merits of an application during competitive review. 
Specific information related to the matching requirement and 
competitive review will be provided in each listed funding opportunity 
announcement. Unmatched Federal funds will be disallowed. Costs borne 
by matching contributions are subject to the regulations governing 
allowability found under 45 CFR 74.23 and 45 CFR 92.24.
    The Department of Health and Human Services' Grants Forecast is a 
database of planned grant opportunities proposed by its various 
agencies. Each Forecast record contains actual or estimated dates and 
funding levels for grants that the agency intends to award during the 
fiscal year. Additional details about ACF planned FY2009 funding 
opportunity announcements can be found on the Grants Forecast Web site 
at https://extranet.acf.hhs.gov/hhsgrantsforecast/. Published ACF
