[FR Doc. 2018–05235 Filed 3–14–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4164–01–P Announcing Budget Period Extensions with Funding for the Health Center Program. ACTION: HRSA provided additional grant funds during extended budget periods to prevent interruptions in the provision of critical health care services for funded service areas until new awards could be made to eligible Service Area Competition (SAC) applicants or HRSA could conduct an orderly phase-out of Health Center Program activities by the current award recipients. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Recipients of the Award: Health Center Program award recipients for service areas that were threatened with a lapse in services due to service area reannouncement or transitioning award recipients, as listed in Table 1. Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: 33 awards for $17,248,966. Period of Supplemental Funding: Fiscal years 2016 and 2017. CFDA Number: 93.224 SUMMARY: DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Authority: Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended). Health Resources and Services Administration Justification: Targeting the nation’s high need populations and geographic areas, the Health Center Program currently funds nearly 1,400 health centers that operate more than 11,000 service delivery sites in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. Health Center Program Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). AGENCY: Nearly 26 million people received accessible, affordable, quality primary health care services through the Health Center Program award recipients in 2016. Approximately one-third of Health Center Program award recipients’ service areas are competed each year, and each competition has the potential to result in a change in award recipient. SACs are also held prior to the current grant’s project period end date when (1) a grant is voluntarily relinquished, or (2) a program noncompliance enforcement action taken by HRSA terminates the grant. If the SAC draws no fundable applications, HRSA may extend the current award recipient’s budget period to ensure primary health care services remain available while a new competition is conducted for the service area. The amount of additional grant funds is calculated by pro-rating HRSA’s annual funding commitment to the service area. Approximately 6 months is required to announce and conduct a SAC and select a new award recipient. In all cases, current fiscal year funds are used to extend the award recipient’s existing budget period award. Through these actions, award recipients receive consistent levels of funding to support uninterrupted primary health care services to the nation’s underserved populations and communities during service area award recipient transition.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

Health Resources and Services Administration


Health Center Program

AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department 
of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Announcing Budget Period Extensions with Funding for the Health 
Center Program.

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

SUMMARY: HRSA provided additional grant funds during extended budget 
periods to prevent interruptions in the provision of critical health 
care services for funded service areas until new awards could be made 
to eligible Service Area Competition (SAC) applicants or HRSA could 
conduct an orderly phase-out of Health Center Program activities by the 
current award recipients.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Recipients of the Award: Health Center Program award recipients for 
service areas that were threatened with a lapse in services due to 
service area re-announcement or transitioning award recipients, as 
listed in Table 1.
    Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: 33 awards for $17,248,966.
    Period of Supplemental Funding: Fiscal years 2016 and 2017.
    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 high need populations and 
geographic areas, the Health Center Program currently funds nearly 
1,400 health centers that operate more than 11,000 service delivery 
sites in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin 
Islands, and the Pacific Basin. Nearly 26 million people received 
accessible, affordable, quality primary health care services through 
the Health Center Program award recipients in 2016.
    Approximately one-third of Health Center Program award recipients' 
service areas are competed each year, and each competition has the 
potential to result in a change in award recipient. SACs are also held 
prior to the current grant's project period end date when (1) a grant 
is voluntarily relinquished, or (2) a program noncompliance enforcement 
action taken by HRSA terminates the grant. If the SAC draws no fundable 
applications, HRSA may extend the current award recipient's budget 
period to ensure primary health care services remain available while a 
new competition is conducted for the service area.
    The amount of additional grant funds is calculated by pro-rating 
HRSA's annual funding commitment to the service area. Approximately 6 
months is required to announce and conduct a SAC and select a new award 
recipient. In all cases, current fiscal year funds are used to extend 
the award recipient's existing budget period award. Through these 
actions, award recipients receive consistent levels of funding to 
support uninterrupted primary health care services to the nation's 
underserved populations and communities during service area award 
recipient transition.
