This action will align the project period end dates of all active HCCN grants and ensure maximum competition for a single HCCN funding opportunity in fiscal year (FY) 2016. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipient of the Award: Health Center Controlled Networks awarded under funding opportunity announcement HRSA–13–237. Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $11,909,772. Period of Supplemental Funding: December 1, 2015, to July 31, 2016. SUMMARY: Olivia Shockey, Expansion Division Director, Office of Policy and Program Development, Bureau of Primary Health Care, Health Resources and Services Administration at 301–443–9282 or at oshockey@hrsa.gov. New budget period start State CFDA Number: 93.527. Authority: Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended). Justification: Health Center Controlled Networks enhance the use of health information technology (HIT) to improve the quality of care provided by Health Center Program awardees and look-alikes, collectively referred to as health centers. HCCNs bring health centers together to jointly address operational and clinical challenges, particularly the acquisition and implementation of HIT in a costefficient manner. They help fulfill the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan and address HRSA’s goal that all Health Center Program awardees will: • Acquire and effectively implement certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology to enable all eligible providers to become meaningful users of EHRs as defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); • access EHR incentive program payments; and E:\FR\FM\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 112 / Thursday, June 11, 2015 / Notices • enhance data reporting and technology-enabled quality improvement activities. Two HCCN funding opportunities were competed in FY 2013, resulting in two grant cohorts with project period end dates that differ by 8 months: 37 grants funded under HRSA–13–237 ending November 30, 2015, and six grants funded under HRSA–13–267 ending July 31, 2016. BPHC requests to implement one project period end date for all active HCCNs, July 31, 2016, by providing an additional 8 months of support to grants funded under HRSA– 13–237. Creating one funding cycle will prevent a lapse in funding that may jeopardize HIT implementation 33275 underway at the health centers receiving technical assistance from the HCCNs. By September 30, 2015, $11,909,772 will be awarded to continue the 37 grants’ approved activities for 8 months (see Table 1). Awardees will report progress and financial obligations made during the 8-month budget period extension as instructed by the Notice of Award.

ACTION: Notice of Class Deviation from Competition Requirements for

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Awarding Agency Grants Administration 
Manual (AAGAM) Chapter 2.04.103, the Bureau of Primary Health Care 
(BPHC) has been granted a class deviation from the exceptions to 
maximum competition requirements contained in the AAGAM Chapter 
2.04.104A-5 to provide additional funding without competition to the 37 
Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) awarded under announcement 
HRSA-13-237, extending their December 1, 2014, to November 31, 2015, 
budget period through July 31, 2016. This action will align the project 
period end dates of all active HCCN grants and ensure maximum 
competition for a single HCCN funding opportunity in fiscal year (FY) 
2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Intended Recipient of the Award: Health Center Controlled Networks 
awarded under funding opportunity announcement HRSA-13-237.
    Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $11,909,772.
    Period of Supplemental Funding: December 1, 2015, to July 31, 2016.

    CFDA Number: 93.527.


    Authority: Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as 
amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended).
    Justification: Health Center Controlled Networks enhance the use of 
health information technology (HIT) to improve the quality of care 
provided by Health Center Program awardees and look-alikes, 
collectively referred to as health centers. HCCNs bring health centers 
together to jointly address operational and clinical challenges, 
particularly the acquisition and implementation of HIT in a cost-
efficient manner. They help fulfill the Federal Health IT Strategic 
Plan and address HRSA's goal that all Health Center Program awardees 
will:
     Acquire and effectively implement certified Electronic 
Health Record (EHR) technology to enable all eligible providers to 
become meaningful users of EHRs as defined by the Centers for Medicare 
& Medicaid Services (CMS);
     access EHR incentive program payments; and

[[Page 33275]]

     enhance data reporting and technology-enabled quality 
improvement activities.
    Two HCCN funding opportunities were competed in FY 2013, resulting 
in two grant cohorts with project period end dates that differ by 8 
months: 37 grants funded under HRSA-13-237 ending November 30, 2015, 
and six grants funded under HRSA-13-267 ending July 31, 2016. BPHC
