2017 Young Farmer Grant Program Request for Application

Purpose.

Pursuant to the Texas Agriculture Code, Section 58.091, the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) is requesting applications for the Young Farmer Grant (YFG) program. The YFG is administered by TDA under the direction of the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority (TAFA). The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance in the form of dollar-for-dollar matching grant funds to those persons 18 years or older but younger than 46 years of age that are engaged or will be engaged in creating or expanding an agricultural business in Texas.

TAFA's Young Farmer Grant Program aims to:

- Grow and support Texas agriculture - so as not to have to ship products from other states, including deficit commodities;

- Help grow an operation that also impacts the community; and

- Help meet a financial need that is otherwise not met.

Eligibility.

Grant applications will be accepted from any person 18 years or older, but younger than 46 years of age as of the time of the grant award, who is engaged or will be engaged in creating or expanding agriculture in Texas. The applicant must be able to make dollar-for-dollar matching expenditures to sustain, create or expand the proposed project.

Funding Parameters.

Selected grantees will receive funding for their projects on a cost reimbursement basis. Funds will not be advanced to grantees. Selected grantees must have the financial capability to pay all costs upfront.

The TAFA Board of Directors (board) anticipates total funding of $150,000 will be available for grant awards of not less than $5,000 and or more than $20,000 for each grantee selected to receive an award under the program.

The TAFA board reserves the right to fully or partially fund any particular grant application. The grant award does not include required Grantee Matching Funds. Grantees will be required to meet a 1:1 match. For every dollar requested, the grantee must show expenditure, prior to reimbursement, of at least an equal amount of Grantee Matching Funds from allowable sources. Awards are subject to the availability of funds. If funds are not appropriated or collected for this purpose, applicants will be informed accordingly.

Application Requirements:

To be considered, applications must be complete and submitted on Form GTBD-108. An application and information can be downloaded from TDA's Grants Office under the Grants and Services tab at www.TexasAgriculture.gov.

The complete application packet including the proposal with signatures must be received by Thursday, April 20, 2017.

Combined Notice of Public Meeting and Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision for Municipal Solid Waste Compost Permit Proposed Permit No. 2388

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. SouthWaste Disposal, LLC 16350 Park Ten Place, Suite 215, Houston, Texas 77084, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a Type V Resource Recovery and Composting Facility permit to authorize the storage and processing activities associated with the composting of grease trap waste, municipal sewage sludge, septic waste, dairy and food including meat and fish. In addition, the facility will accept for processing bulking material in the form of clean wood. The facility is proposed to be located in an unincorporated area of Austin County, a rural area east of the corporate limits of San Felipe, Texas. It will be near the intersection of Barlett Road and Brazos 10 Lane in Austin County, Texas. The TCEQ received this application on November 16, 2015. The application is available for public viewing and copying at Bellville Public Library, 12 W. Palm, Bellville, Texas 77418. The following link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice: https://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=29.776111&lng=-96.078055&zoom=13&type=r. For exact location, refer to the application.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director's preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Bellville Public Library, 12 West Palm, Bellville, Texas 77418. The permit application may be viewed online at http://www.dbsa-client-access.com/application/file_access.html.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments about this application. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting on this application because it was requested by local legislators. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application.

A public meeting will be held and will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing under the Administrative Procedure Act. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public will be encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the permit application. The comments and questions submitted orally during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application and no formal response will be made. Responses will be provided orally during the Informal Discussion Period. During the Formal Comment Period on the permit application, members of the public may state their formal comments orally into the official record.

The Public Meeting is to be held:

Monday, April 17, 2017, at 7:00 p.m.

Sealy American Legion Hall

1630 Meyer Street

Sealy, Texas 77474

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments and the Executive Director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision. A person who may be affected by the proposed facility is entitled to request a contested case hearing from the commission. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court.

TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone; applicant's name and permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period; and the statement "(I/we) request a contested case hearing." If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify by name and physical address an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group's purpose.

Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn.

If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decision on the application submitted during the comment period.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing, or a reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. To be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.

For exact location, refer to application.

ADDITIONAL NOTICE. TCEQ's Executive Director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application.

That notice will contain the deadline for submitting public comments.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting on this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ will hold a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing.

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the Executive Director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A person who may be affected by the facility is entitled to request a contested case hearing from the commission. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; applicant's name and permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period, and the statement "(I/we) request a contested case hearing." If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify by name and physical address an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group's purpose. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decision on the application submitted during the comment period.

MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county.

Texas Health and Human Services Commission

Public Notice: SPA 17-0011 Covered Outpatient Drug

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) announces its intent to submit transmittal number 17-0011 to the Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance, under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.

The state plan amendment (SPA) for which notice is being provided here is subsequent to another SPA (approved February, 6, 2017) that revised the Texas Fee-For-Service (FFS) pharmacy reimbursement methodology to one that pays pharmacies based on the drug ingredient cost, defined as actual acquisition cost (AAC), plus a professional dispensing fee, effective June 1, 2016. The proposed amendment is effective April 1, 2017.

The purpose of this amendment is to bring the state plan into compliance with the applicable requirements of 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §447.518. The proposed changes are as follows:

- Indian Health Service, tribal or urban Indian pharmacies are reimbursed using the approved AAC methodology, plus the professional dispensing fee.

- Drugs acquired at the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and drugs acquired at the Nominal Price are reimbursed using the approved AAC methodology, plus the professional dispensing fee, as applicable.

- Reimbursement for clotting factor from enrolled Specialty Pharmacies, Hemophilia Treatment Centers, and Centers of Excellence will use the approved AAC methodology, plus the professional dispensing fee.

- As described in the SPA approved February 6, 2017, AAC is based on National Average Drug Acquisition Cost (NADAC). If NADAC is not available, AAC is based on Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) or market sources as approved in the state plan.

- Covered entities and contracted pharmacies that use drugs purchased outside of the 340B program are reimbursed in accordance with the approved AAC methodology in the state plan, plus the professional dispensing fee. If NADAC is not available, AAC is based on WAC or market sources as approved in the state plan. Covered entities and contracted pharmacies that purchased drugs for eligible Medicaid recipients are reimbursed based on HHSC's estimate of the CMS 340B ceiling price, plus the professional dispensing fee.

- Physician-administered drugs: The current physician-administered drug reimbursement methodology will be included directly or by reference in the pharmacy section of the State Plan.

- Investigational drugs are not currently a benefit of Texas Medicaid. If that changes a SPA will be submitted to provide the applicable reimbursement methodology, in accordance with 42 CFR §447.522.

The proposed amendment is estimated to have no fiscal impact, as it is not expected to have an effect on Medicaid utilization or cost.

To obtain copies of the proposed amendment, interested parties may contact Doneshia Ates, State Plan Advisor, by mail at the Health and Human Services Commission, P.O. Box 13247, Mail Code H-600, Austin, Texas 78711; by telephone at (512) 428-1963; by facsimile at (512) 730-7472; or by email at Doneshia.Ates@hhsc.state.tx.us. Copies of the proposal will also be made available for public review at the local offices of the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.
