Administration for Community Living--Regulatory Consolidation

AGENCY: Administration for Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is amending its regulations to reflect the creation of ACL in 2012 and consolidate all of its regulations under a single subchapter. No substantive changes to the text of the regulations are being made by this rule.

DATES: This final rule is effective on July 1, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Greg Pugh, Administration for Community Living, telephone (202) 795-7422 (Voice). This is not a toll-

free number. This document will be made available in alternative formats upon request. Written correspondence can be sent to Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 330 C St. SW., Washington, DC 20201.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Administration for Community Living (ACL) was created in 2012 by merging the HHS Administration on Aging (AoA), Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), and the Office of Disability (Statement of Organization Functions, and Delegations of Authority; Administration for Community Living, 77 FR 23250 (Apr. 28 2012)). This consolidation reflected these organizations' shared mission to maximize the independence, well-being, and health of older adults, people with disabilities across the lifespan, and their families and caregivers. Since the creation of ACL, a number of synergistic programs have been transferred under its purview, including the State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIPs) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) (Department of Health and Human Services Appropriations Act, 2014, Public Law 113-76 (Jan 17, 2014)) and the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and the Independent Living Administration from the Department of Education in 2014 (Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act of 2014, Public Law 113-128 (July 22, 2014)).

Many of ACL's component programs and organizations had existing regulations prior to their transfer. ACL is consolidating these regulations in a single place to streamline administration and increase access and transparency. This rule renames the Administration on Aging's subchapter C of chapter XIII, subtitle B, title 45 from ``The Administration on Aging, Older Americans Programs'' to ``The Administration for Community Living.'' It then rearranges the existing AoA rules sequentially. This rule also transfers the existing AIDD rules from subchapter I to ACL's subchapter C. Conforming edits are made throughout in order to correct internal citations.

Publication of this document constitutes final action on this change under the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). ACL has found that notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary because ACL is making a technical change merely updating the location and order of existing content.

This Final Rule will be effective July 1, 2016, in order to allow the Long Term Care Ombudsman final rule, one of the sections being renumbered within ACL's subchapter, to take effect.

Although this Final Rule contains no changes to programmatic or reporting requirements, we include the following table summarizing the changes made in order to simplify public understanding of the Final Rule:
