ACTION: HRSA announces its intent to award a program expansion supplement in the amount of $171,691 for the National Center for Medical Home Implementation (NCMHI) cooperative agreement. The purpose of the NCMHI cooperative agreement, as stated in the funding opportunity announcement, is to: (1) Support a national resource and technical assistance effort to implement and spread the medical home model to all children and youth, particularly children with special health care needs (CSHCN), children who are vulnerable and/or medically underserved, and pediatric populations served by state public health programs, HRSA, and HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB); and (2) support activities of the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) grantees to improve children’s health through innovative communitybased efforts, and community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, and business. The purpose of this notice is to announce the award of supplemental funds to enhance the Rural IMPACT project by supporting activities related to child health in rural and underserved communities by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the cooperative agreement awardee who serves as the NCMHI, during the budget period of July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.

Justification: On August 14, 2015, as part of the White House Rural Council’s Rural Child Poverty Initiative, HRSA awarded a program expansion supplement to the NCMHI cooperative agreement for the Rural IMPACT Project. HRSA and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), each using its own authority, used fiscal year (FY) 2015 funds to support a cohort of ten rural and tribal communities to provide two-generation, bundled services to children and families in need. Utilizing the two-generation approach, the communities will promote problem solving at the community level by encouraging pediatric clinicians’ participation and public-private partnership, such as the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Initiative, Project Launch, and private sector support for improved collaboration and coordination of and access to mental, oral, and physical health and non-clinical resources (e.g., home visiting, early care and education settings such as child care and Head Start, early intervention, child welfare, education) at the community level for children, youth, and their families. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), working with MCHB, will establish an expert workgroup and operational structure to guide the initiative; develop and issue a solicitation and scoring process and conduct a review of letters of interest to make recommendations for participating communities; develop a quality E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1 59165 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 190 / Thursday, October 1, 2015 / Notices improvement package; identify systemslevel measures to monitor process and progress of individual communities and the initiative as a whole; and provide structured technical assistance to the selected communities. In consultation with MCHB, ACF, and the White House Rural Council, the AAP has developed guidance, and solicited for and reviewed letters of interest for the cohort of ten rural and tribal communities. Communities will be notified of the application outcome in late September 2015. For its expert workgroup, AAP has identified and invited experts in social service delivery, rural health, and quality improvement. A meeting of participating communities and the expert workgroup will be held in Washington, DC, in October 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marie Y.

ACTION: Notice of Non-competitive Supplemental Funding Award. AGENCY: HRSA will be providing supplemental funds to support activities for the Center for Health Policy/National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), to support the expanded program and costs for the Systems Integration Academy (SIA) that were not foreseen in the awardee’s approved application. The supplemental funds will be used to augment the awardee’s current activities to provide targeted technical assistance to a Learning Community of 16 states from awarded HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) State Implementation Grants for Enhancing the System of Services for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) through Systems Integration (D70). The purpose of this supplement is to expand the Learning Community and provide technical assistance to the D70 grantees to achieve a shared resource, crosssystem care coordination, and MCH 3.0 alignment.

Amount of the award: $281,810 for 2 years. Authority: Section 311(a) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. CFDA Number: 93.110. Project period: The period of the supplemental support is from September 1, 2015, to August 31, 2017. Justification for the Exception to Competition: Currently, the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) is serving as the national technical assistance provider to the 12 D70 grantee states supported by MCHB through the Systems Integration Grant Program. In order to do this, NASHP must expand the scope of this objective to provide the targeted technical assistance to the D70 states through a ‘‘Systems Integration Academy’’ (SIA). Redefining the new scope and activities under the SIA requires significant staff effort and reprioritization of other major activities in NASHP’s approved application. The SIA began in November 2014; representatives from the twelve D70 state grantees participated. Subsequently, three technical assistance webinars to support the state teams’ work have been convened. A technical assistance needs assessment was developed and disseminated to the state teams, and the information received will be used to guide other technical assistance activities within the SIA learning community. NASHP coordinated and developed the State Implementation Grants to Enhance Systems Integration for CYSHCN: Systems Integration Academy In-Person Meeting. NASHP launched a shared platform for the SIA to support the SIA states’ cross-state learning community. This platform supports the exchange of resources and provides an interactive forum for use by the current 12 states throughout the course of the project. PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In fiscal year 2015, MCHB will expand the SIA Learning Community and provide technical assistance to four new D70 grantees, which will receive targeted technical assistance to achieve shared resource, cross-system care coordination and alignment with MCH 3.0.
