ACTION:

Notice of a Non-Competitive Program Expansion Supplement To Revise, Update, and Disseminate Educational Curricula Regarding Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias.

SUMMARY:

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will be issuing a non-competitive program expansion supplement to 45 Geriatric Education Centers (GEC) Program grantees to revise, update, and disseminate educational curricula regarding Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias (AD). Approximately $2,000,000 will be available in Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 and $4,000,000 in FY 2013 from the Prevention and Public Health Fund, created by the Affordable Care Act. The GEC grantees have the capacity, capability, expertise, experience, and infrastructure to expeditiously, effectively, and efficiently implement the AD initiative within their existing educational programming. The programmatic supplements will allow the Bureau of Health Professions to consolidate resources and provide enhanced technical assistance, grant funds, grant monitoring and oversight to the AD initiative within currently existing grants.

Intended Recipients of the Award: 45 Existing GEC awardees.

Amount of the Awards: $42,222.

Project Period: July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2014.

Authority: Section 753(a) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by Section 5305 of the Affordable Care Act.

Justification

The programmatic supplements will allow the Bureau of Health Professions to consolidate resources and provide enhanced technical assistance, grant funds, grant monitoring and oversight to the AD initiative within currently existing grants. Providing the additional funding to existing grantees also has benefits for program evaluative purposes since the GEC grantees already have evaluation requirements with which they comply. This programmatic supplement aligns with the current GEC budget period cycle, resulting in administrative savings over a competitive grant making process.
