Project period: April 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011. The period of support for this award is from April 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011. Justification for the Exception to Competition Critical funding for HIV medical care and treatment services to clients in northern North Carolina will be continued through a non-competitive award to the Rural Health Group, because it has the fiscal and administrative infrastructure to administer the Part C Grant. This is a temporary replacement award, as the previous grant recipient serving this population notified HRSA that it could not continue providing services after March 31, 2010. HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau identified the Rural Health Group as the best qualified entity for this temporary grant, because it is a PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28263 community health center funded by section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. As of January 1, 2010, the Maria Parham Medical Center has contracted with the Rural Health Group to provide services temporarily, and the program staff has been transferred to the Rural Health Group. The Rural Health Group can ensure comprehensive services are provided including primary medical care including antiretroviral therapies; prevention education and medication adherence teaching; referrals for mental health, substance abuse and dental services; and on-site medical HIV case management services. The additional funding provided would enhance retaining the targeted population in care. The Rural Health Group is able to provide critical services with the least amount of disruption to the service population while the service area is recompeted. This supplement will cover the time period from April 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011.

Justification for the Exception to Competition

    Critical funding for HIV medical care and treatment services to 
clients in northern North Carolina will be continued through a non-
competitive award to the Rural Health Group, because it has the fiscal 
and administrative infrastructure to administer the Part C Grant. This 
is a temporary replacement award, as the previous grant recipient 
serving this population notified HRSA that it could not continue 
providing services after March 31, 2010. HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau 
identified the Rural Health Group as the best qualified entity for this 
temporary grant, because it is a community health center funded by 
section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. As of January 1, 2010, 
the Maria Parham Medical Center has contracted with the Rural Health 
Group to provide services temporarily, and the program staff has been 
transferred to the Rural Health Group. The Rural Health Group can 
ensure comprehensive services are provided including primary medical 
care including antiretroviral therapies; prevention education and 
medication adherence teaching; referrals for mental health, substance 
abuse and dental services; and on-site medical HIV case management 
services. The additional funding provided would enhance retaining the 
targeted population in care. The Rural Health Group is able to provide 
critical services with the least amount of disruption to the service 
population while the service area is re-competed.
    This supplement will cover the time period from April 1, 2010, 
through June 30, 2011. This service area will be included in the 
upcoming competition for the Part C HIV Early Intervention Services for 
project periods starting July, 2011.
