ACTION: Record of decision. AGENCY: The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), a separately organized agency within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is amending its July 20, 2011, Record of Decision for the Continued Operation of the Y–12 National Security Complex (2011 ROD) (76 FR 43319) to reflect its decision to implement a revised approach for meeting enriched uranium (EU) requirements, by upgrading existing EU processing buildings and constructing a new Uranium Processing Facility (UPF). Additionally, NNSA has decided to separate the single-structure UPF design concept into a new design consisting of multiple buildings, with each constructed to safety and security requirements appropriate to the building’s function. This revised approach is a hybrid of two alternatives previously analyzed in the 2011 Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement for the Y–12 National Security Complex, DOE/EIS–0387 (Y–12 SWEIS). The scope of this Amended ROD is limited to actions which have been found necessary to sustain Y–12’s capability to conduct EU processing operations in a safe and secure environment. Those actions are also addressed in a Supplement Analysis (SA) (DOE/EIS–0387–SA–01), issued by NNSA in April 2016. All other defense mission activities and non-defense mission activities conducted at Y–12 under the alternative selected for implementation in the 2011 ROD are outside the scope of this decision. As a result of preparing the SA, NNSA has determined that no further National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis is needed to support this Amended ROD. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information on this Amended ROD, the SA, or to receive a copy of the SA, contact: Ms. Pam Gorman, SA Document Manager, U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, UPF Project Office, P.O. Box 2050, Oak Ridge, TN 37831–8116; or Pamela.Gorman@upo.doe.gov; or (865) 576–9918. For information on the DOE NEPA process, contact: Ms. Carol M.

SUMMARY: On April 26, 2016, we published in the Federal Register (81 FR 
24573) a notice inviting applications (NIA) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 
2015 Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) competition. The NIA 
established a deadline date of June 27, 2016, for the transmittal of 
applications. This notice reopens the competition until July 19, 2016.

DATES: 
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: July 19, 2016.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: September 15, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are reopening this competition in order 
to allow applicants more time to prepare and submit their applications. 
A number of applications received in response to the NIA were not 
eligible because the applications did not meet all of the requirements 
in the NIA, including the deadline for the submission of applications. 
Therefore, we are reopening the competition to allow applicants to 
submit or resubmit applications that meet all of the requirements in 
the NIA.
    Applicants that have already submitted applications under the FY 
2015 P3 competition are encouraged to review their applications and 
determine whether they have met all eligibility and application 
requirements, including the original deadline for submission, in the 
NIA and the application package, which is available on the Grants.gov 
Apply site. Applicants may review a recorded Webinar that discusses the 
eligibility and application requirements at http://youth.gov/youth-topics/reconnecting-youth/performance-partnership-pilots/round-2-bidders-conference-recording.
    As stated above, applicants may resubmit applications that may not 
have met all of the requirements in the NIA. Applicants that have 
already submitted timely applications that meet all of the requirements 
of the NIA do not have to resubmit their applications. If a new 
application is not submitted, the Department will use the application 
that was submitted before the June 27, 2016, 4:30:00 p.m., Washington, 
DC time, deadline. Applications that did not meet the June 27, 2016, 
4:30 p.m., Washington, DC time, deadline must be resubmitted to be 
considered for review.

    Note:  All information in the NIA for this competition remains 
the same, except for the deadline date. We remind applicants that, 
to be eligible, the application must be submitted by a State, local, 
or tribal government. Further, the application must identify two or 
more discretionary Federal programs \1\ that will be included in the 
pilot, at least one of which must be administered (in whole or in 
part) by a State, local, or tribal government. These programs must 
be discretionary programs administered by one of the agencies to 
which the P3 authority provided in the Consolidated and Further 
Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 (2015 Appropriations Act) or the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (2016 Appropriations Act) 
applies. These agencies are the Departments of Education (ED), 
Health and Human Services (HHS), Justice (DOJ),\2\ and Labor (DOL), 
the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), and the 
Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS).\3\ Further, 
applicants are reminded that, to be eligible for the FY 2015 
competition, applications must include some eligible FY 2015 funds 
from programs at ED, HHS, DOL, CNCS, and IMLS. Applicants may also 
include FY 2016 funds in their applications, including programs 
funded under DOJ's Office of Justice Programs, due to the authority 
in the 2016 Appropriations Act. However, if an applicant intends to 
use solely FY 2016 or FY 2017 funds, it is not eligible to be a FY 
2015 pilot.

    \1\ Discretionary funds are funds that Congress appropriates on 
an annual basis, rather than through a standing authorization. They 
exclude ``entitlement'' (or mandatory) programs such as Social 
Security, Medicare, Medicaid, most Foster Care IV-E programs, 
Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants, and Temporary Assistance to 
Needy Families. Discretionary programs administered by the Agencies 
(as defined in the NIA) support a broad set of public services, 
including education, job training, health and mental health, and 
other low-income assistance programs.

applicants may not propose to blend or request any waiver of program 
requirements associated with FY 2015 funds from DOJ's Office of 
Justice Programs in this competition. However, they may propose to 
braid those funds in this round of pilots. Additionally, applicants 
may include (by blending, braiding, or requesting associated waivers 
of program requirements) FY 2016 funds from DOJ's Office of Justice 
Programs.
    \3\ The 2016 Appropriations Act authorizes the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to enter into performance 
agreements with respect to FY 2016 Homeless Assistance Grants. HUD 
is not authorized to enter into performance agreements that will be 
established under the April 26, 2016 NIA. An NIA for FY 2016 pilots 
that may include FY 2016 Homeless Assistance Grants is expected to 
be issued later this year.
