Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Solicitation of Comments

AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HHS.

ACTION: Notice of opportunity to provide written comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This Federal Register Notice solicits comments on Parts A 
through F of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. Comments are solicited to 
inform the 2013 reauthorization of the Program, which was most recently 
reauthorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act (PHS), 
as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 
(Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program). Stakeholders will be invited to share 
written comments regarding reauthorization of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS 
Program through the Web portal at www.regulations.gov.
    HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau will also host listening sessions in the 
form of teleconferences or webinars to engage stakeholders across the 
U.S. At least four listening sessions will be conducted, each targeting 
different geographic areas. The listening sessions will offer 
stakeholders the opportunity to discuss reauthorization of the Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Program.
    Listening sessions will be announced as dates are determined. Dates 
will be announced at http://hab.hrsa.gov/reauthorization/.

DATES: Submit written comments no later than July 31, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be submitted on-line through 
www.regulations.gov. Individuals wishing to submit comments on the Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Program should search for the following term: ``HRSA-
2012-0003.'' Navigate directly to the appropriate section at http://hab.hrsa.gov/reauthorization/.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Written comments addressing Parts A through 
F of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program are welcome from all Ryan White 
stakeholders, including grantees, advocacy organizations, State and 
local administrators, and other members of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS 
Program and the HIV/AIDS community. Stakeholders are strongly 
encouraged to clearly organize comments and include headings to 
indicate which part of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program the comment(s) 
address(es), such as Parts A, B, C, D or F. For stakeholders who plan 
to submit comments addressing multiple parts of the Program, it is 
suggested that comments pertaining to the same part are grouped and 
that each group of comments is preceded with a heading stating the 
relevant part of the Program.
    To ensure an opportunity for all stakeholders to contribute to 
regional aspects of disease/epidemic, HRSA recommends that individuals 
participate in the listening session assigned to their geographic area.

    Dated: April 25, 2012.
Mary K. Wakefield,
Administrator.
