(This is not a toll-free number.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 30, 2011, VA published in the Federal Register (76 FR 82212) a proposal to amend VA regulations to establish a grant program to provide innovative transportation options to veterans in highly rural areas, to comply with section 307 of title III of the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010, Public Law tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Apr 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 111–163. Subsection (a) of section 307 mandates that VA award grants to only State veterans service agencies (SVSAs) and Veterans Service Organization (VSOs) to assist veterans in highly rural areas to travel to VA medical centers, and to otherwise assist in providing transportation in connection with the provision of VA medical care to these veterans. This final rule establishes the grant program in accordance with subsection (a) of section 307, and establishes procedures for evaluating grant applications and otherwise administering the grant program in accordance with subsection (b) of section 307. Interested persons were invited to submit comments to the proposed rule on or before February 28, 2012, and we received 17 comments. All of the issues raised by the commenters can be grouped together by similar topic, and we have organized our discussion of the comments accordingly. For the reasons set forth in the proposed rule and below, we are adopting the proposed rule as final, with changes to §§ 17.701, 17.703, 17.705, 17.715, and 17.725 and the authority citations following the regulations in this rulemaking. Comments Regarding the Limitation on Entities That Are Eligible To Receive Grants Multiple commenters objected to the proposed rule’s limitation that only VSOs and SVSAs may receive grants. These commenters contended that this limitation would block many existing transportation providers from receiving grants to expand current veterans’ transportation services, to the detriment of veterans generally. Commenters asserted that making grants available to any existing transportation provider would ensure that grants would be used more effectively because VSOs and SVSAs that receive grants would only be duplicating transportation services already offered to veterans by existing providers, and because VSOs and SVSAs do not have the expertise of existing transportation providers to access a particular area or transport that area’s veterans. We make no changes to the rule based on these comments, because grantees are limited by section 307 to VSOs and SVSAs. Subsection (a)(2) of section 307 identifies as eligible grant recipients ‘‘State veterans service agencies’’ and ‘‘Veterans service organizations.’’ Subsection (a)(3) of section 307 further states that ‘‘[a] State veterans service agency or veterans service organization’’ may use grant funds for specified purposes. We interpret this statutory language to bar PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 VA from awarding grants to any entity other than a VSO or SVSA. To more specifically address commenter concerns regarding duplicated services and lack of grantee expertise, we note that most commenters seemed to assume that VSOs and SVSAs that receive grants would not themselves be existing transportation providers. However, we know of several VSOs and SVSAs that provide transportation services. Moreover, the rule contains scoring criteria to reward coordination between grantees and other transportation providers (including existing providers that may not qualify to receive grants), and rewarding this type of coordination assists in addressing the general concerns of duplicated services and lack of grantee expertise. See § 17.705(a)(3). Discussion of these coordination criteria, as well as discussion of why VSOs and SVSAs would not merely be duplicating existing transportation services, are provided in greater detail in the next section of this document. Generally, grantees may use grants to expand or augment the transportation services offered by transportation providers that may not qualify as grantees under the rule, or otherwise may use such entities to provide the transportation assistance that is established in a grantee’s program, as long as all other criteria of the rule are met. One commenter specifically asserted that section 307 could be interpreted in an ‘‘innovative’’ manner to allow a grant award to an organization such as a county-level agency within a State that is delegated responsibilities to serve veterans by an SVSA, based on the following language from section 307: ‘‘The Secretary of Veterans Affairs shall establish a grant program to provide innovative transportation options to veterans in highly rural areas.’’ Public Law 111–163, sec. 307(a)(1). We interpret the term ‘‘innovative’’ in section 307(a)(1), however, only as a modifier to describe the types of transportation options that may be provided to veterans in highly rural areas. We do not interpret the term as having any effect regarding the two defined eligible entities that may receive grants under section 307. The plain meaning of a ‘‘State veterans service agency’’ considers only State-level entities, and not a county agency within a State. However, under the same rationale provided above, this rule does not prevent an SVSA from using grant funds to administer transportation assistance through a county-level agency to carry out the objectives of the SVSA’s grant application.
