Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Funding Opportunity
Document Number: 2013-06897
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-26
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
This notice is to inform the public that the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends to award $1.5 million (total costs) for up to five years to the state of Idaho for a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant. This is not a formal request for applications. Assistance will be provided only to the state of Idaho based on the receipt of a satisfactory application that is approved by an independent review group. Funding Opportunity Title: SP-13-005. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 93.243. Authority: Section 516 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended . Justification: Eligibility for this SPF SIG award is limited to the state of Idaho, the only state receiving a Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) that has never been awarded a SPF SIG grant from SAMHSA. The SPF SIG grant has already allowed 49 states to strengthen and consolidate their prevention systems and build greater capacity in their communities. SAMHSA/CSAP believes that every state must build prevention capacity and infrastructure to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking, and to reduce substance abuse-related problems across the nation. Following the SPF five-step process, the state of Idaho will have the opportunity to use SPF SIG funds to develop a comprehensive prevention plan at the state level and support a broad range of sub-recipient communities to implement effective programs, policies and practices to reduce substance abuse and its related problems. By giving a SPF SIG to every state, including Idaho, SAMHSA will have effected nationwide, systemic change in preventing the onset and reducing the progression of substance abuse and substance abuse- related problems nationwide.

Public Water System Supervision Program Approval for the State of Michigan
Document Number: 2013-06895
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Notice is hereby given that the EPA has tentatively approved five revisions to the State of Michigan's public water system supervision program.

These rules better protect public health by controlling microbial contaminants and disinfection byproducts, and streamline existing lead and copper rule requirements. EPA has determined that these revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these revisions, thereby giving the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality primary enforcement responsibility for these regulations. This approval action does not extend to public water systems in Indian Country, as the term is defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. By approving these rules, EPA does not intend to affect the rights of federally recognized Indian Tribes in Michigan, nor does it intend to limit existing rights of the State of Michigan.
