[FR Doc. 2015–19548 Filed 8–7–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4164–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Health Resources and Services Administration Health Center Program Health Resources and Services Administration, HHS. ACTION: Notice of Class Deviation from Competition Requirements for the Health Center Program. AGENCY: 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 144 Health Center Program award recipients whose budget period ends November 30, 2015, for up to 5 months. The extension allows BPHC to eliminate the December 1 budget period start date by redistributing these grants to established start dates later in the fiscal year, thereby allowing award recipients comparable opportunity to prepare and submit applications while allowing BPHC to remain compliant with internal process timelines. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipient of the Award: Health Center Program award recipients with a project period end date of November 30, 2015. SUMMARY: Justification: Targeting the nation’s neediest populations and geographic areas, the Health Center Program currently funds nearly 1,300 health centers that operate approximately 9,000 service delivery sites in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. In 2013, more than 21 million patients, including medically underserved and uninsured patients, received comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services through the Health Center Program award recipients. Due to the vast size of the Health Center Program, the active grants are distributed across seven budget periods that begin on the first of the month, December through June. BPHC uses the information award recipients report annually via the Uniform Data System (UDS) to objectively determine the patient and service area requirements that new and continuing applications must address. The requirements are available for applicant use in June. The deviation allows BPHC to redistribute the award recipients with December 1 starting dates to budget period start dates later in the fiscal year, thus allowing these award recipients comparable opportunity to prepare and submit applications while allowing BPHC to remain compliant with internal process timelines. By September 15, 2015, $85,451,535 will be awarded to these 144 award recipients to continue approved activities for up to 5 months. Award recipients will report progress and financial obligations made during their budget period extension through routine reports.

Over the past several years, ASPA has been refining its organizational structure to improve its strategic and operational communication capacities to more effectively support the mission and strategic priorities of the Department. A substantive element of this change has been a shift from a purely operational structure focusing on defined services to one that builds a whole-of-ASPA approach that draws on all communication skills across each of three key portfolios—health care, public health, and human services. The proposed organizational realignments will, therefore, update and revise ASPA’s structure to reflect this more functional, strategic operational approach. The changes are described below: I. Under Part A, Chapter AP, Section AP.00 Mission, delete in its entirety and replace with the following: AP.00 Mission: The ASPA serves as the Secretary’s principal counsel on public affairs, leading efforts across the Department to promote transparency, accountability and access to critical public health and human services information to the American people.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

Health Resources and Services Administration


Health Center Program

AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice of Class Deviation from Competition Requirements for the 
Health Center Program.

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

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 
144 Health Center Program award recipients whose budget period ends 
November 30, 2015, for up to 5 months. The extension allows BPHC to 
eliminate the December 1 budget period start date by redistributing 
these grants to established start dates later in the fiscal year, 
thereby allowing award recipients comparable opportunity to prepare and 
submit applications while allowing BPHC to remain compliant with 
internal process timelines.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Intended Recipient of the Award: Health Center Program award 
recipients with a project period end date of November 30, 2015.
    Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $85,451,535.
    Period of Supplemental Funding: December 1, 2015, to maximum April 
30, 2016.
    CFDA Number: 93.224.

    Authority:  Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as 
amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended).

    Justification: Targeting the nation's neediest populations and 
geographic areas, the Health Center Program currently funds nearly 
1,300 health centers that operate approximately 9,000 service delivery 
sites in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin 
Islands, and the Pacific Basin. In 2013, more than 21 million patients, 
including medically underserved and uninsured patients, received 
comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care 
services through the Health Center Program award recipients. Due to the 
vast size of the Health Center Program, the active grants are 
distributed across seven budget periods that begin on the first of the 
month, December through June.
    BPHC uses the information award recipients report annually via the 
Uniform Data System (UDS) to objectively determine the patient and 
service area requirements that new and continuing applications must 
address. The requirements are available for applicant use in June. The 
deviation allows BPHC to redistribute the award recipients with 
December 1 starting dates to budget period start dates later in the 
fiscal year, thus allowing these award recipients comparable 
opportunity to prepare and submit applications while allowing BPHC to 
remain compliant with internal process timelines. By September 15, 
2015, $85,451,535 will be awarded to these 144 award recipients to 
continue approved activities for up to 5 months. Award recipients will 
report progress and financial obligations made during their budget 
period extension through routine reports.
