SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended recipient of the award: Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii Direct Project Pacific Islands Health Officers Association, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Authority: Sections 241 and 301 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 238J and 241 respectively); Title 3 Section 330(k), 330(m), 333(d) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b and 254c respectively). CFDA Number: 93.110. Project period: The period of the supplemental support is from March 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010. Justification for the Exception to Competition The public health data systems in the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI) are inadequate as a result of poor infrastructure capacity. There is inconsistency in data collection and analysis among the jurisdictions. The result is that the prevalence of disease conditions in the USAPI is underestimated. In addition, the lack of data increases the communicable disease threats to USAPI populations and to the U.S. communities which experience high migration of residents from these jurisdictions. Furthermore, the current health workforce in the USAPI is impacted by chronic health worker shortages and under-training of its current workforce. The workforce problems are serious, chronic, and unique to insular areas which have fewer resources to address them.

ACTION: Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Grand Ditch Breach Restoration, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), the National Park Service is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the Grand Ditch Breach Restoration, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. This effort will result in ecological restoration of the area affected by the 2003 Grand Ditch Breach. Alternatives to be considered will likely include a combination of the following: Allowing natural (passive) restoration to occur where appropriate; stabilizing steep, unstable slopes with an engineered solution; removing deposited sediment and redistributing it through the impacted area or elsewhere; removing dead timber from the impacted area and/or using it in the restoration process; regrading and recontouring areas to restore appropriate morphology and function; native plant restoration with appropriate, locally gathered plant materials; may require the use of motorized equipment such as chainsaws, heavy lift helicopters, and earthmoving equipment; may require temporary fencing to protect native plant restoration areas. Major issues to be considered in this restoration planning process include short-and-long-term potential impacts to: Wilderness character; geological resources; geological hazards; soundscapes; surface and groundwater hydrology; stream channel, floodplain and wetland morphology and function; water quality; riparian and wetland communities; species of special concern (plants and animals); wildlife habitat; aquatic habitat; visitor experience; longterm resource productivity; archeological and historical sites. A scoping brochure has been prepared that details the issues identified to date. Copies of that information may be obtained from the Public Information Office, Rocky Mountain National Park, 1000 U.S. Highway 36, Estes Park, Colorado 80517–8397, (970) 586–1206. DATES: The Park Service will accept comments from the public through June 16, 2010. E:\FR\FM\18MRN1.SGM 18MRN1
