Fair Market Rents for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program and Other Programs Fiscal Year 2017
Document Number: 2016-20552
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-08-26
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Today's notice announces the FY 2017 Fair Market Rents (FMRs) for all areas that reflect the estimated 40th and 50th percentile rent levels trended to April 1, 2017. The Housing Opportunities Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA) (Pub. L. 114-201, approved July 29, 2016) revises the procedure by which HUD publishes its annual FMRs. Specifically, HUD is no longer required to publish proposed FMRs for comment in the Federal Register. Rather, HUD may post the FMRs on HUD's Web site and announce such posting by notice published in the Federal Register. In addition, HOTMA provides that HUD's FMRs shall be effective no earlier than 30 days after the date of the publication of HUD's Federal Register notice but that public housing agencies (PHAs) and other interested parties may comment on the FMR and request revevaluation of FMRs in a jurisdiction before such FMRs become effective. This notice announces that HUD's FY 2017 FMRs are available at www.huduser.gov and will take effect as stated in the DATES section of this notice unless interested parties request reevaluation of a their FMRs by September 26, 2016. HOTMA also requires HUD to publish proposed material changes to the methodology for comment. This notice also announces that HUD is not changing the methodology for calculating the FY 2017 FMRs estimates from that used to determine the FY 2016 FMRs. This notice, however, requests public comments on defining the scope of material changes that will trigger notice and comment in future calculation of FMRs. The FY 2017 FMRs announced in this notice are based on ``5-year'' data collected by the American Community Survey (ACS) from 2010 through 2014. HUD updated the 5-year data with ``one-year'' 2014 ACS data for areas where statistically valid one-year ACS data is available. HUD continues to use ACS data in different ways according to the statistical reliability of rent estimates. HUD uses actual and forecast Consumer Price Index (CPI) rent and utility price indices to further update the ACS-derived rents to the middle of the FY 2017 fiscal year. The FY 2017 FMRs continue to use the February 28, 2013, OMB metropolitan area definitions. As noted above, the FY 2017 FMRs are calculated in the same manner used to calculate of the FY 2016 FMRs with the only differences being the use of updated data. HUD notes that the only area for which HUD announces Small Area FMRs is the Dallas, TX HUD Metro FMR Area. The Small Area FMR Demonstration project with 5 PHA participants concludes on September 30, 2016. The 5 PHAs that participated in the demonstration may continue to be able set their housing choice voucher payment standards based on Small Area FMRs, as discussed in this notice.

Document Number: 2016-20525
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-08-26
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services
The National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) was established in 1987 to comply with Title XXI of the Public Health Service Act (Pub. L. 99-660) (Sec. 2105) (42 U.S. Code Section 300aa-5). Its purpose is to advise and make recommendations to the Director of the National Vaccine Program on matters related to the program's responsibilities. The Assistant Secretary for Health (ASH) has been designated by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) as the Director of the National Vaccine Program. The National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) is located within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of the Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NVPO provides leadership and fosters collaboration among the various federal agencies involved in vaccine and immunization activities. The NVPO also provides management and support services for the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC). The NVAC advises and makes recommendations to the ASH in his/her capacity as the Director of the National Vaccine Program on matters related to the program's responsibilities. Recognizing the importance and impact of maternal immunizations on public health, the ASH charged the NVAC in June 2012 with reviewing the state of maternal immunizations and existing best practices to identify programmatic gaps and/or barriers to the implementation of current recommendations regarding maternal immunization. The NVAC established the Maternal Immunization Working Group (MIWG) in August 2012 to conduct these assessments and provide recommendations for overcoming any identified barriers. Through a series of teleconferences, electronic communications, and public discussions during the NVAC meetings, the working group identified a number of draft recommendations for consideration by the NVAC. These recommendations represent opportunities for developing and licensing new vaccines for pregnant women. The draft report and draft recommendations from the working group will inform NVAC deliberations as the NVAC finalizes their recommendations for transmittal to the ASH. On behalf of NVAC, NVPO is soliciting public comment on the draft report and draft recommendations from a variety of stakeholders, including the general public, for consideration by the NVAC as they develop their final recommendations to the ASH. It is anticipated that the draft report and draft recommendations, as revised with consideration given to public comment and stakeholder input, will be presented to the NVAC for adoption in September 2016 at the quarterly NVAC meeting.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announces its intention to prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for its proposal to disposition depleted uranium oxide (DUOX) conversion product from its depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUF6) conversion facilities at the Paducah, Kentucky, and Portsmouth, Ohio, sites at up to three offsite low-level waste disposal facilities. The Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Disposition of Depleted Uranium Oxide Conversion Product Generated from DOE's Inventory of Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride (DOE/EIS-0359-S1; DOE/ EIS-0360-S1) will analyze potential environmental impacts from the proposed action to identify a final disposition location or locations for the DUOX conversion product from both operating DUF6 conversion facilities. The proposed scope of the draft SEIS includes an analysis of potential environmental impacts from activities associated with the transportation to and disposition of depleted uranium oxide at three proposed disposition location alternatives: the DOE-owned low-level radioactive waste disposal facility at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) in Nye County, Nevada; the EnergySolutions, LLC (formerly known as Envirocare of Utah, Inc.) low-level waste disposal facility in Clive, Utah; and the newly identified location at the Waste Control Specialists, LLC (WCS) low-level waste disposal facility in Andrews, Texas.
