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 intent to fund fiscal year (FY) 2004 funds for a cooperative agreement program to achieve and sustain measles, rubella, and congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) elimination in the Americas. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 93.185.
B. Eligible Applicant
Assistance will be provided only to Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). PAHO is the most appropriate and qualified agency to conduct the activities under this cooperative agreement because:
1. PAHO has the lead responsibility among the United Nations organizations for implementing activities to achieve the Pan American Sanitary Conference resolution of 1994 calling for the regional elimination of measles, and the year 2003 resolution calling for the elimination of rubella and CRS by year 2010. PAHO is the only organization in the Americas with a regional mandate for the control and prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases (VPD).
2. The proposed program is strongly supportive of, and directly related to, the achievement of PAHO and CDC/National Immunization Program objectives for the control and prevention of VPDs with emphasis on CDC's objectives.
3. PAHO, in collaboration with the Governments of Brazil, Canada, Netherlands, Spain, USAID, March of Dimes, Sabin Institute, American Red Cross and CDC, are partners in an international effort to increase support and visibility for both the measles and rubella elimination initiatives.
Approximately $6,000,000 is available in FY 2004 to fund this award. It is expected that the award will begin on or before May 1, 2004, and will be made for a 12-month budget period within a project period of up to five years. Funding estimates may change.Start Printed Page 12158
