AGENCY: Announcing project period extensions with Funding for Health Center Program Award recipients in Puerto Rico. ACTION: Justification: In September 2017, HHS declared a hurricane-related public health emergency in Puerto Rico. Health centers in Puerto Rico and the patients they serve continue to face significant challenges associated with recovery from Hurricane Maria. For these four award recipients, the funding permits them to continue to operate in the current fiscal year before submitting competitive applications by the end of the 12-month extension period. Extending the project period and providing flexibility for competing applications for these four award recipients aligns with the Office of Management and Budget’s memorandum to provide short-term relief to affected award recipients, ‘‘Administrative Relief for Grantees Impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria,’’ signed on October 26, 2017. HRSA awarded approximately $17 million to the four existing Health Center Program award recipients noted in Table 1.
