Response to Solicitation of Comments on a Funding Priority for Multiple Counties Under the Fiscal Year 2007 New Access Points in High Poverty Counties Grant Opportunity
A notice was published in the Federal Register (FR) on December 6, 2006, (Vol. 71, No. 234, pp. 70780-70781), describing a funding priority to be included in the fiscal year (FY) 2007 New Access Points in High Poverty Counties grant opportunity. The notice requested public comments on the proposed funding priority to be sent to HRSA no later than January 5, 2007. Comments were received from over 30 organizations and/or individuals in response to the notice of the proposed funding priority. The majority of comments received did not pertain specifically to the proposed funding priority, but rather the President's High Poverty Counties Initiative (``the Initiative'') and grant opportunity; therefore this notice presents a summary of the general comments received with HRSA's corresponding responses including references to the FY 2007 New Access Points in High Poverty Counties (HRSA-07-069) funding opportunity, as well as a summary of the final funding priority.
