FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alefiyah Mesiwala, (410) 786–2224 or ESRD-CMMI@cms.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) is interested in identifying models designed to improve care for beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). To promote seamless and integrated care for beneficiaries with ESRD, we are developing a comprehensive care delivery model to emphasize coordination of a full-range of clinical and non-clinical services across providers, suppliers, and settings. Through the Comprehensive ESRD Care Model, we seek to identify ways to improve the coordination and quality of care for this population, while lowering total per-capita expenditures to the Medicare program. We anticipate that the Comprehensive ESRD Care Model would result in improved health outcomes for beneficiaries with ESRD regarding the functional status, quality of life, and overall well-being, as well as increased beneficiary and caregiver engagement, and lower costs to Medicare through improved care coordination. On February 6, 2013, we published a notice in the Federal Register announcing a request for applications from organizations to participate in the testing of the Comprehensive ESRD Care Model, for a period beginning in 2013 and ending in 2016, with a possible extension into subsequent years. In that notice, we stated that organizations interested in applying to participate in the testing of the Comprehensive ESRD Care Model must submit a non-binding letter of intent by March 15, 2013, and an application by May 1, 2013. Several stakeholders requested additional time to prepare their applications and form partnerships. Therefore, the Innovation Center extended the deadlines relating to the Comprehensive ESRD Care initiative. On July 17, 2013, we published a notice in the Federal Register announcing an extension of deadlines. The new deadlines were July 19, 2013 for the Letter of Intent and August 1, 2013 for the application. On August 9, 2013, we published an additional notice in the Federal Register announcing an extension of deadlines. The notice reopened the Letters of Intent submission period and extended the deadlines for submission of both the PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21763 Letters of Intent and the Applications to August 30, 2013. II. Provisions of the Notice Since the publication of the August 9, 2013 notice, we have made several revisions to the design of the Comprehensive ESRD Care initiative. Therefore, for the Comprehensive ESRD Care Initiative, the Innovation Center is reopening the Letters of Intent submission period and extending the deadlines for submission of both the Letters of Intent and the Applications. The new deadline for submission of the letter of intent is June 23, 2014 for LDO applicants and September 15, 2014 for non-LDO applicants; and the new deadline for submission of the application is June 23, 2014, for LDO applicants and September 15, 2014 for non-LDO applicants. In the DATES section of this notice, we are including the new submissions deadlines.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 5, 2009, President Obama signed the ‘‘Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies on Tribal Consultation.’’ The President stated that his Administration is committed to regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in policy decisions that have tribal implications, including, as an initial step, complete and consistent implementation of Executive Order 13175. The United States has a unique legal and political relationship with Indian tribal governments, established through and confirmed by the Constitution of the United States, treaties, statutes, executive orders, and judicial decisions. In recognition of that special relationship, pursuant to Executive Order 13175 of November 6, 2000, executive departments and agencies are charged with engaging in regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in the development of federal policies that SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 have tribal implications, and are responsible for strengthening the government-to-government relationship between the United States and Indian tribes. HHS has taken its responsibility to comply with Executive Order 13175 very seriously over the past decade, including the initial implementation of a Department-wide policy on Tribal consultation and coordination in 1997, and through multiple evaluations and revisions of that policy, most recently in 2010. ACF has developed its own agency-specific consultation policy that complements the Department-wide efforts. ACF’s Administration for Native Americans will hold a consultation on June 16, 2014. ACF Principals will be available to speak with Tribal Leaders to discuss issues important to the tribes and will focus on ACF tribal program priorities. To help all participants to prepare for this consultation, planning teleconference calls will be held on: Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 3:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, May 21, 2014, 3:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, May 28, 2014, 3:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time The call-in number is: 866–769–9393. The passcode is: 4449449#. Testimonies are to be submitted no later than June 2, 2014, to: Lillian Sparks Robinson, Commissioner, Administration for Native Americans, 370 L’Enfant Promenade, SW., Washington, DC 20447, anacommissioner@acf.hhs.gov. This session will be followed by the ACF Native American Grantee Conference, to be held June 17–19, 2014, with several workshops that we hope will prove to be informative to you and your grant program directors. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘‘Honoring Our Commitments to Native American Families and Communities: Today and Tomorrow.’’ The workshop tracks are: Accessing Educational Opportunities; Economic Opportunity NOW!; Promoting Health; Supporting Governance; Promoting Hopeful, Safe, and Healthy Communities; Understanding Grants Management and E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1
