SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

VA published a document in the Federal Register on July 10, 2009, at 74 FR 33192, amending its regulations regarding grants to States for construction or acquisition of State homes to update the maximum number of nursing home and domiciliary beds designated for each State, and to amend the definition of “State.” This document corrects an error in the preamble of the proposed rule in the maximum number of beds for the State of Vermont. However, in the regulatory text section of the proposed rule contains the correct number of 142 beds as shown in the table.

In FR Doc. E9-16341, published July 10, 2009, (74 FR 33192), make the following correction: On page 33194, in the third column of the table “New max # of beds (based on 2020 projection)” in the entry for Vermont, remove the number “1312” and add, in its place, “142”.
