Section 553(d) of the APA ordinarily requires a 30-day delay in the effective date of rules after the date of their publication in the Federal Register. This 30-day delay in the effective date can be waived, however, if an agency finds for good cause that the delay is PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Wage index 0.9080 0.9908 1.4520 0.3432 impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and the agency incorporates a statement of the findings and its reasons in the rule issued.

The correct policies were implemented as of July 1, 2009. We are simply conforming the RY 2010 IPF PPS notice to those policies by E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1

Proposed Project: Ready Responders Program Application--New

    The HRSA National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Ready Responder 
Program is comprised of an elite cadre of Commissioned Corps officers. 
These officers are assigned to practice in NHSC-approved clinical sites 
located throughout the country within eligible Health Professional 
Shortage Areas. The purpose of the program is to increase access to 
primary care services in underserved communities and to assist sites in 
their efforts to recruit providers and become self-sustaining. In 
addition to providing direct patient care at the site where the officer 
is stationed, each Ready Responder typically works with the sites to 
develop various programs and activities such as emergency preparedness 
and response, patient education, staff development, staff recruitment, 
and sound business practices. Moreover, they are specially trained to 
deploy in the event of a local, regional, and national emergency.
    This application will be used by NHSC sites to request the 
assignment of a NHSC Ready Responder. The document requires the 
applicant to describe the needs in their community and at their 
respective sites. The application also asks the site to describe the 
roles and responsibilities of the prospective Ready Responder.
