    Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $25,000/award
    Period of Supplemental Funding: To be used in the current fiscal 
year (FY) 2014 budget period
    CFDA Number: 93.912

    Authority:  Public Health Service Act, Section 330A (e) (42 
U.S.C. 254(c)), as amended.

    Justification: A greater proportion of rural residents lack health 
insurance in comparison to urban residents. With millions still 
uninsured, this supplemental funding will allow current Outreach 
grantees an opportunity to specifically employ and tailor ACA outreach 
and enrollment efforts to the uninsured population in rural communities 
for the upcoming Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period 
(November 15, 2014-February 15, 2015). Additionally, Outreach grantees 
will be able help educate the newly insured rural Americans about the 
health insurance coverage and care to which they now have access.
