This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year (FY) 2001 funds for a one-year grant program for the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, Emerging Infectious Disease Center. This program addresses the “Healthy People 2010” focus area of Immunization and Infectious Diseases.
The purpose of the program is to build a center that will allow the unique interdisciplinary expertise of multiple institutions, as well as national laboratories, be applied to epidemics and other instances of emerging infectious diseases. The intent of a center is to develop a network-based surveillance system to understand, detect, intervene and prevent emerging epidemics by working at the intersection of public health.
B. Eligible Applicants
Assistance will be provided only to the University of Mexico in Albuquerque. No other applications are solicited. Eligibility is limited to the University of New Mexico because fiscal year 2001 Federal appropriations specifically directs the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to award this University funds to develop a network-based surveillance system.
Title 2 of the United States Code, Chapter 26, Section 1611 states that an organization described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engages in lobbying activities is not eligible to receive Federal funds constituting an award, grant, cooperative agreement, contract, loan or other form.
C. Availability of Funds
Approximately $921,000 is available in FY 2001 to fund the award. It is expected that the award will begin on or about July 15, 2001, and will be made for a 12-month budget period within a project period of one year.
