SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipient of the Award: National Center for Community Based Services/University of Massachusetts (U42MC18283). Amount of the Non-Competitive Awards: $449,125. CFDA Number: 93.110. Period of Supplemental Funding: July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014. Authority: Section Title V, Section 501(a)(2) of the Social Security Act, as amended. Justification: As authorized by section 501(a)(2) of the Social Security Act, MCHB’s Division of Children with Special Health Needs is responsible for facilitating the development of community-based systems of services for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSCHN). To meet this legislative mandate, the Division funds the National Center for Community Based Services and the State Implementation Grant Program (D70). The National Center for Community Based Services (U42MC18283), a cooperative agreement funded at $449,125 per year for a 3-year project period, is due to end June 30, 2013. This national center focuses on improving access to services for underserved CYSHCN and their families, especially those from Latino Families. The D70 grant program has had several funding cycles since 2005, with a minimum of six grants in each cycle. In fiscal year (FY) 2014, the project period for eight of the D70 grants will end. At that time, the Division plans to begin a new cycle of D70 competitive awards to states to improve the system of services for CYSHCN. The Division explored several grant funding options that would align with its strategic goals of funding entities to improve the services for CYSHCN at the state and community levels. The amount available in FY 2013 could only fund two D70 grants and would not provide the grantees with a peer learning community that has existed with previous cycles. Moreover, the resources and objective review costs for a funding cycle for only two grants is not cost effective. Therefore, in lieu of a D70 competition in FY 2013, the Division proposes to use these funds to extend the project period for the PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 National Center for Community Based Services (U42MC18283) for 1 year until June 30, 2014. At that time, with the project period ending for the eight D70 grants, all funds will be available for a new, competitive cycle of D70 grants in 2014. The MCHB proposes the 1-year noncompetitive funding action for three strategic programmatic reasons: (1) To appropriately spend the necessary preparation time to complete a full grant competition aligned with the Division’s strategic goals; (2) to provide for sufficient fiscal resources to continue programmatic activities; and (3) to maintain MCHB programmatic support with the least disruption to the state, community, and maternal and child health constituencies who are currently receiving assistance and services from these grantees, and the grantees themselves.

AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HHS.

ACTION: Notice of Single Single-Case Deviation: Administrative 
Supplement From Competition Requirements for the Maternal and Child 
Health Bureau's (MCHB) National Center for Community Based Services.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: HRSA will be issuing a non-competitive award to the National 
Center for Community Based Services program. The 1-year award for 
$449,125 will be made available in the form of a cooperative agreement 
to the current grantee, University of Massachusetts, during the budget 
period July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014. This will provide feasible 
time for the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) to align fiscal 
resources and programmatic goals with the least disruption to the 
states, communities, and constituencies that currently receive 
leadership, assistance, and services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Intended Recipient of the Award: National Center for Community 
Based Services/University of Massachusetts (U42MC18283).
    Amount of the Non-Competitive Awards: $449,125.
    CFDA Number: 93.110.
    Period of Supplemental Funding: July 1, 2013, through June 30, 
2014.

    Authority:  Section Title V, Section 501(a)(2) of the Social 
Security Act, as amended.

    Justification: As authorized by section 501(a)(2) of the Social 
Security Act, MCHB's Division of Children with Special Health Needs is 
responsible for facilitating the development of community-based systems 
of services for children and youth with special health care needs 
(CYSCHN).
    To meet this legislative mandate, the Division funds the National 
Center for Community Based Services and the State Implementation Grant 
Program (D70). The National Center for Community Based Services 
(U42MC18283), a cooperative agreement funded at $449,125 per year for a 
3-year project period, is due to end June 30, 2013. This national 
center focuses on improving access to services for underserved CYSHCN 
and their families, especially those from Latino Families. The D70 
grant program has had several funding cycles since 2005, with a minimum 
of six grants in each cycle. In fiscal year (FY) 2014, the project 
period for eight of the D70 grants will end. At that time, the Division 
plans to begin a new cycle of D70 competitive awards to states to 
improve the system of services for CYSHCN.
    The Division explored several grant funding options that would 
align with its strategic goals of funding entities to improve the 
services for CYSHCN at the state and community levels. The amount 
available in FY 2013 could only fund two D70 grants and would not 
provide the grantees with a peer learning community that has existed 
with previous cycles. Moreover, the resources and objective review 
costs for a funding cycle for only two grants is not cost effective. 
Therefore, in lieu of a D70 competition in FY 2013, the Division 
proposes to use these funds to extend the project period for the 
National Center for Community Based Services (U42MC18283) for 1 year 
until June 30, 2014. At that time, with the project period ending for 
the eight D70 grants, all funds will be available for a new, 
competitive cycle of D70 grants in 2014.
    The MCHB proposes the 1-year non-competitive funding action for 
three strategic programmatic reasons: (1) To appropriately spend the 
necessary preparation time to complete a full grant competition aligned 
with the Division's strategic goals; (2) to provide for sufficient 
fiscal resources to continue programmatic activities; and (3) to 
maintain MCHB programmatic support with the least disruption to the 
state, community, and maternal and child health constituencies who are 
currently receiving assistance and services from these grantees, and 
the grantees themselves.
