Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Corporation for National and Community Service.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the “Corporation”) hereby amends its regulations for the Senior Corps. These amendments make technical corrections to the final rules issued on April 14, 2004, for the Foster Grandparent Program and on April 19, 2004, for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. Two amendments herein provide technical corrections to the Foster Grandparent Program and Retired and Senior Volunteer Program regulations to ensure consistency concerning the allowability of volunteer expenses among the Foster Grandparent, Retired and Senior Volunteer, and Senior Companion Programs and bring them in line with the corresponding provision for the Senior Companion Program, as it was amended on April 19, 2004. The third amendment deletes one sentence in the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program regulations so as to ensure consistency throughout the entire section.

DATES:

These changes are effective as of September 22, 2004.
