Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Funding Opportunity, 44344 [2011-18669]

Download as PDF 44344 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 142 / Monday, July 25, 2011 / Notices future organizational development, partnerships, and collaborations to support the implementation of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (NSSP). This 1-year funding supports the SPRC and the goals and objectives of the Action Alliance by providing the infrastructure supports to update and advance the NSSP. This will further support national investment in prevention and public health. Since 2002, the SPRC has provided prevention support, training, and resources to assist organizations and individuals to develop suicide prevention programs, interventions, and policies, to further the work of the Action Alliance and to advance the NSSP. The Action Alliance was launched in September 2010 by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary Robert Gates as an innovative public private partnership established to improve public and professional awareness of suicide as a preventable public health problem and to enhance the capacities and capabilities of communities to promote prevention and resilience. Funding for the SPRC and for this program supplement are components of the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act, most recently included in the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations Act. Congress authorized funding for only one Suicide Prevention Resource Center; therefore the program supplement must be awarded to the grantee that manages the SPRC, specifically to Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, Massachusetts. There are no other sources with the available resources and expertise to successfully complete the tasks of this proposal. Further, it would be both inefficient and wasteful to fund a second technical assistance provider for the same group of grantees. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shelly Hara, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 1 Choke Cherry Road, Room 8–1095, Rockville, MD 20857; telephone: (240) 276–2321; E-mail: shelly.hara@samhsa.hhs.gov.
