The ANEW Program is authorized by Section 811 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 296j), as amended. This request is to extend the use of ANEW ProgramSpecific forms, specifically Tables #1 and #2. There are no proposed changes to these tables. ANEW Table #1 collects information on the types of practice settings where graduates, who received ANEW support as students, are currently employed. The data on graduates’ employment practice settings demonstrate the distribution of specialties, i.e., nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and nurse midwives, who are practicing in rural, underserved, public health nursing, and Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) practice settings. ANEW Table #2 requests information on the projected number of primary care advanced practice registered nursing student enrollees/trainees who will receive traineeship support for each upcoming budget year over the entire project period. This data provides a baseline for comparison to data collected on the numbers of students/ enrollees/trainees supported that are reported on the Annual Performance Reports. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: ANEW Program-Specific Table #1 captures data on the number of graduates of the academic partner applicant who received HRSA support and are currently employed in rural PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 areas, undeserved areas, public health nursing, and HPSA practice settings. The graduate data collected measure the impact of the ANEW Program in meeting the legislative and program goals. ANEW Program-Specific Table #2 collects information on the projected number of students/enrollees to receive traineeship support each budget year of the project period and provides a baseline for student/enrollee support that is reported in the Annual Performance Reports. Collecting this data assists HRSA in carrying out the most impactful program and ensuring resources are used responsibly. Likely Respondents: Likely respondents will be current ANEW awardees, who will submit the data tables as part of a Noncompeting Continuation progress report, and applicants for the ANEW program, including schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities determined appropriate by the Secretary that are accredited to carry out primary care nurse practitioner and nurse midwifery programs by a national nurse education accrediting agency recognized by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. The school must be located in one of the 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, or the Republic of Palau.

Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is hereby given that the Indian Health Service (IHS) is establishing the geographic boundaries of the Purchased/Referred Care Delivery Area (PRCDA) (formerly Contract Health Service Delivery Area or CHSDA) for six newly recognized Tribes: The Chickahominy Indian Tribe, the Chickahominy Indian Tribe—Eastern Division, the Upper Mattaponi Tribe, the Rappahannock Tribe, Inc., the Monacan Indian Nation, and the Nansemond Indian Tribe.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The IHS currently provides services under regulations in effect on September 15, 1987, and republished in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 42 CFR part 136, subparts A–C. When Tribes are recognized under Federal law, either Congress legislatively designates counties to serve as PRCDAs, or the Director, IHS, exercises reasonable administrative discretion to designate PRCDAs to effectuate the intent of Congress for these Tribes. The Director, IHS, publishes a notice in the Federal Register (FR) when there are revisions or updates to the list of PRCDAs, including the designation of PRCDAs for newly recognized Tribes. At 42 CFR part 136 subpart C, a PRCDA is defined as the geographic area within which Purchased/Referred Care (PRC) will be made available by the IHS to members of an identified Indian community who reside in the area. The regulations provide that, unless otherwise designated, a PRCDA shall consist of a county which includes all or part of a reservation and any county or counties which have a common boundary with the reservation (42 CFR 136.22(a)(6)). Residence within a PRCDA by a person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, as set forth in 42 CFR 136.12, creates no legal entitlement to PRC but only potential eligibility for services. Services needed but not available at an IHS or Tribal facility are provided under the PRC program depending on the availability of funds, the relative medical priority of the services to be provided, and the actual availability and accessibility of alternate resources in accordance with the regulations. Under the Thomasina E. Jordan Indian Tribes of Virginia Federal Recognition Act of 2017 (Recognition PO 00000 Total responses Sfmt 4703 Act), Public Law 115–121, the Chickahominy Indian Tribe, the Chickahominy Indian Tribe—Eastern Division, the Upper Mattaponi Tribe, the Rappahannock Tribe, Inc., the Monacan Indian Nation, and the Nansemond Indian Tribe were officially recognized as Indian Tribes within the meaning of Federal law. The Recognition Act sets forth service areas for each of the six newly recognized Tribes, for the purpose of the delivery of Federal services to Tribal members. Four of these six service areas include specific references to counties and independent cities in the state of Virginia. IHS is establishing four PRCDAs in this notice based upon those specific references. The remaining two service areas enumerated by Congress in the Recognition Act do not specify either counties or independent cities. Instead, Congress has indicated a mileage radius for those two service areas. Since IHS establishes PRCDAs for the administration of PRC by county, IHS has interpreted this language to mean all counties within or intersected by the radius specified by Congress in the Recognition Act, as well as the independent cities within the contiguous area formed by those counties. The purpose of this FR notice is to notify the public of the establishment of the six newly recognized Tribes’ PRCDAs, consistent with the Congressional intent expressed in the Recognition Act. The Tribes’ PRCDAs are designated as follows: Chickahominy Indian Tribe—New Kent County, James City County, Charles City County, and Henrico County, Virginia. Chickahominy Indian Tribe—Eastern Division—New Kent County, James City County, Charles City County, and Henrico County, Virginia. Upper Mattaponi Tribe—Richmond County, Middlesex County, Essex County, King and Queen County, King William County, New Kent County, Hanover County, Caroline County, Henrico County, Charles City County, E:\FR\FM\22JAN1.SGM 22JAN1
