This temporary award is needed because the former grantee, St. Mary’s Hospital and Medical Center, relinquished, effective December 31, 2008, the original award (project period September 1, 2008, through August 31, 2011). NJHRC, nationally known as the ‘‘Center for Research and Treatment of Respiratory Conditions,’’ is uniquely qualified to provide screening and diagnosis of occupationally related radiogenic diseases for the target populations. NJHRC has administered the HRSAfunded Black Lung Clinic Program (BLCP) grant for the past five years and is well suited to undertake operations of the Radiation Exposure Screening and Education Program under the previously approved scope of project. Additionally, this organization has a thorough understanding of the characteristics and needs of miners (both current and retired) as well as other workers at risk for occupational diseases. HRSA’s Office of Rural Health Policy is not aware of any other organization that VerDate Nov<24>2008 could provide such treatment and services to the impacted service populations without additional time and resources being devoted to bringing that organization’s service capacity up to the level needed under the project scope of this award. This temporary non-competitive replacement award will permit the new recipient to ensure continuity of services to the affected populations. The supplemental funding will provide support for 8 months. Further funding beyond August 31, 2009, for this service area will be provided through a limited service area competition to be announced in the near future.

A network of non-profit organizations that are committed to protecting workers and their communities by delivering highquality, peer-reviewed safety and health curricula to target populations of hazardous waste workers and emergency responders has been developed. In twenty-one years (FY 1987–2008), the NIEHS Worker Training program has successfully supported 20 primary grantees that have trained more than 2.2 million workers across the country and presented over 130,250 classroom and hands-on training courses, which have accounted for nearly 30 million contact hours of actual training.
