SUMMARY: HRSA currently has nine programs that are funded through 
competitive grant awards under the Sickle Cell Disease Treatment 
Demonstration Program. Three of these awards will end on August 31, 
2013, prior to the end of the other six awards. HRSA intends to 
implement a non-competitive extension of the project period for the 
three grants that will end in 2013. This will allow improved data 
gathering from each of the grantees in the program, which will be used 
in a report for Congress that is mandated by the legislation 
authorizing the grant. In addition, the program will benefit from cost 
savings realized from having the program completed in a consolidated 
funding cycle.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
