Abstract: HRSA proposes revisions to the Environmental Information and Documentation (EID) checklist, which consists of information that the agency is required to obtain to comply with the SUMMARY: National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). NEPA establishes the federal government’s national policy for protection of the environment.

HRSA utilizes the checklist to ensure that decisionmaking processes are consistent with NEPA. The revisions will update some of the language in the checklist. For example, to better align with 45 CFR part 75, HRSA proposes to change the term ‘‘grant’’ to ‘‘award’’ and ‘‘grantee’’ to ‘‘award recipient.’’ A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register on December 27, 2018, Vol. 83, No. 247. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Applicants for HRSA funds must provide information and assurance of compliance with NEPA on the EID checklist. This information is reviewed in the pre-award stage. Likely Respondents: HRSA applicants applying for federal construction grants and cooperative agreements. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Funding Announcement Number: HHS–2019–IHS–UIHP2–0002. Assistance Listing (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance or CFDA) Number: 93.193. Key Dates Application Deadline Date: May 30, 2019. Earliest Anticipated Start Date: July 1, 2019. I. Funding Opportunity Description Statutory Authority The Indian Health Service (IHS) Office of Urban Indian Health Programs (OUIHP) is accepting applications for competitive grants for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 4-in-1 for Urban Indian Organizations. This program is authorized under the Snyder Act, 25 U.S.C. 13, Public Law (Pub. L.) 67–85, and Title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA), Public Law 94–437, as amended, specifically the provisions codified at 25 U.S.C. 1653(c)–(e) (authorizing grants for health promotion and disease prevention services, immunization services and mental health services), and § 1660a (authorizing grants for alcohol and substance abuse related services). This program is described in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) under 93.193. amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Background In the late 1960s, Urban Indian community leaders began advocating at the local, State and Federal levels to address the unmet health care needs of Urban Indians, and requested health care services and programs. These efforts resulted in an increase of preventative, medical, and behavioral health services, but there was growing recognition of challenges preventing Urban Indians in seeking health care services. To address these barriers, advocacy focused on the development of culturally appropriate activities that were unique to the social, cultural and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Apr 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 spiritual needs of American Indians and Alaska Natives residing in urban settings. Programs developed at that time were staffed by volunteers in storefront settings with limited budgets offering primary care and outreach and referral-type services. In response to efforts of the Urban Indian community leaders, Congress appropriated funds in 1966, through the IHS, for a pilot urban clinic in Rapid City, South Dakota. In 1973, Congress appropriated funds to study unmet Urban Indian health needs in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The findings of this study documented cultural, economic, and access barriers to health care and led to congressional appropriations under the Snyder Act to support emerging Urban Indian clinics in several Bureau of Indian Affairs relocation cities, e.g., Seattle, San Francisco, Tulsa, and Dallas. In 1976, Congress passed the IHCIA, Public Law 94–437, establishing the Urban Indian health program under Title V. Congress reauthorized the IHCIA in 2010 under Public Law 111–148 (2010). This law is considered health care reform legislation to improve the health and well-being of all American Indians and Alaska Natives, including Urban Indians. Title V-specific funding is authorized for the development of programs for Urban Indians residing in urban areas. These areas include health promotion and disease prevention (HP/ DP) services, immunization services, alcohol and substance abuse related services, and mental health services, hereafter referred to as ‘‘4-in-1,’’ health programs or services. Purpose The purpose of this IHS grant announcement is to award funding to Urban Indian Organizations to ensure the highest possible health status for Urban Indians. Funding will be used to support the 4-in-1 health program objectives. Specifically, the four health programs are: (1) HP/DP services, (2) immunization services, (3) alcohol and substance abuse related services, and (4) mental health services. These programs are integral components of the IHS health care delivery system. Funds from this effort will ensure that comprehensive, culturally acceptable personal and public health services are available and accessible to Urban Indians. II. Award Information Type of Awards PO 00000 Grants. Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17843 Estimated Funds Available The total amount of funding identified for FY 2019 is approximately $980,000.
