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.

Notice of Noncompetitive Replacement Awards to Albany Area Primary Health Care, Inc.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will be transferring Health Center Program (section 330 of the Public Health Service Act) Community Health Center (CHC), Increased Demand for Services (IDS), and Capital Improvement Program (CIP) funds originally awarded to Unadilla Health Care Center, Inc., to Albany Area Primary Health Care, Inc., to ensure the provision of critical primary health care services to underserved populations in Dooly County, Georgia.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Former Grantee of Record: Unadilla Health Care Center, Inc.
Original Period of Grant Support: December 1, 2008, to November 30, 2010 (CHC); March 27, 2009, to March 26, 2011 (IDS); and June 29, 2009, to June 28, 2011 (CIP).
Replacement Awardee: Albany Area Primary Health Care, Inc.
Amount of Replacement Awards: The current awards for Unadilla Health Care Center, Inc., were issued at $678,041 (CHC); $126,411 (IDS); and $316,325 (CIP). The amounts transferred will be the remaining funds from those most recent awards.
Period of Replacement Awards: The period of support for the replacement awards is the remaining time in the Health Center project period ending on November 30, 2010 (CHC); March 26, 2011 (IDS); and June 28, 2011 (CIP).
CFDA Numbers: 93.224 and 93.703
Justification for the Exception to Competition
The former grantee, Unadilla Health Care Center, Inc. (UnaHealth), notified HRSA that it was unable to carry out the administrative and programmatic requirements to appropriately manage the grant funds and indicated that it would be relinquishing the grant funds. UnaHealth is unable to provide the necessary primary health care services in Dooly County, Georgia, to the more than 3,000 low income, underserved and uninsured individuals in the service area.
Albany Area Primary Health Care, Inc. (AAPHC) is an experienced provider of care and has a demonstrated record of compliance with the Health Center Program statutory and regulatory requirements and is located in the same geographical area. AAPHC will provide services to the residents of Dooly County at a site proximate to UnaHealth's current location. Community support for this transfer is demonstrated by letters of support from three other existing section 330 grantees in the service area, as well as a letter of support from the local Primary Care Association.
This underserved target population has an immediate need for vital primary health care services and would be negatively impacted by any delay or disruption of services caused by a competition. As a result, in order to ensure that critical primary health care services remain available to the original target population without disruption, this replacement award will not be competed.Start Further Info
