Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Health Resources and Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION:

Notice of class deviation from competition requirements for the Health Center Program.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with the Awarding Agency Grants Administration Manual (AAGAM) Chapter 2.04.103, the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) has been granted a class deviation from the exceptions to maximum competition requirements contained in the AAGAM Chapter 2.04.104A-5 to provide additional funding without competition to the 115 Health Center Program awardees whose budget period ends October 31, 2015, for up to 4 months. The extension allows BPHC to eliminate the November 1 budget period start date by redistributing these grants to established starting dates later in the fiscal year, thereby allowing awardees comparable opportunity to prepare and submit applications while allowing BPHC to remain compliant with internal process timelines.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Intended Recipient of the Award: Health Center Program awardees with a project period end date of October 31, 2015.

Amount of Non-Competitive Awards: $44,481,501.

Period of Supplemental Funding: November 1, 2015, to a maximum of February 28, 2016.

CFDA Number: 93.224.

Start Authority

Authority: Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b, as amended).

End Authority

Justification: Targeting the nation's neediest populations and geographic areas, the Health Center Program currently funds nearly 1,300 health centers that operate approximately 9,000 service delivery sites in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. In 2013, more than 21 million patients, including medically underserved and uninsured patients, received comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services through the Health Center Program awardees. Due to the vast size of the Health Center Program, the active grants are distributed across eight budget periods that begin on the first of the month, November through June.

BPHC uses the information awardees report annually via the Uniform Data System (UDS) to objectively determine the patient and service area requirements that new and continuing applications must address. The requirements are available for applicant use in June. The deviation allows BPHC to redistribute the awardees with November 1 start dates to budget period start dates later in the fiscal year, thus allowing these awardees comparable opportunity to prepare and submit applications while allowing BPHC to remain compliant with internal process timelines. By September 15, 2015, $44,481,501 will be awarded to these 115 awardees to continue approved activities for up to 4 months. Awardees will report progress and financial obligations made during their budget period extension through routine reports.
