Clarifications Regarding the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and Reconciliation of Advanced Premium Tax Credits Under the Affordable Care Act; Request for Comment
Document Number: 2014-16406
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-14
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) recently released HAB Policy Clarification Notice 14-01, which requires RWHAP grantees and subgrantees that use program funds to purchase health insurance in the Marketplace to establish appropriate mechanisms to vigorously pursue any excess premium tax credit a client receives from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) upon submission of the client's tax return. HRSA now seeks public comment on the operational feasibility for RWHAP grantees and subgrantees to implement a complementary policy that would allow RWHAP grantees and subgrantees to use RWHAP funds to pay the IRS any additional income tax liability a client may owe to the IRS solely based on reconciliation of the premium tax credit. In addition to general comments about the feasibility of implementing such a policy, HRSA would like feedback on the following issues related to this policy: Could this proposed policy be easily implemented by a grantee? What challenges would grantees and subgrantees face in implementing this proposed policy? Will grantees be able to conduct fiscal monitoring of this proposed policy? If so, what level of effort would be required?

Health Center Program
Document Number: 2014-09132
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-22
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
In accordance with the Awarding Agency Grants Management Manual (AAGAM) Chapter 1.03.103, the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) requests a class deviation to award low-cost extensions of up to 6 months or, when necessary, administrative supplements to minimize disruption of services for specific health center program service areas. Per the requirements for low-cost extensions outlined in the AAGAM Chapter 2.04.104B-4A.1.a.(5)(b), these extensions may not exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding requested) or $100,000. Likewise, per the requirements for administrative supplements outlined in the AAGAM Chapter 2.04.104B-4A.4.b, these supplements may not exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding) or $250,000, whichever is less. In each case, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is required to publish a notice in the Federal Register in advance of, or concurrent with, the awarding of the funds. BPHC is requesting a class deviation to the requirements for low- cost extensions to allow HRSA to award extensions that exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding requested) and/or $100,000 in cases where the grantee would not receive future continued support under the Health Center Program. Likewise, BPHC is requesting a class deviation to the requirements for administrative supplements to allow HRSA to award supplements that exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding) and/or $250,000 in cases where the award is to a currently funded grantee located in or adjacent to the service area of a grantee that will not receive continued support under the Health Center Program. BPHC is also requesting that the deviation allow for the publication of a consolidated notice in the Federal Register annually that summarizes the actions taken in the prior fiscal year. The sole purpose of these low-cost extensions or administrative supplements is to avoid a gap in the provision of critical health care services for a funded service area by providing a ``bridge'' until HRSA is able to make an award to an eligible applicant under a Service Area Competition (SAC) and/or to assure an orderly phase-out of Health Center Program activities by the current grantee. BPHC is not requesting that this class deviation cover single source replacement awards and will continue to request single case deviations for such non-competitive actions if necessary.
