Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses toward Living Organ Donation: This notice solicits applications for the Reimbursement of Travel and Subsistence Expenses toward Living Organ Donation Program for the fiscal year (FY) 2019 funding cycle. The purpose of this Program is to provide reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses and other incidental non-medical expenses that the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) may authorize by regulation to living organ donors and up to two relatives or other individuals accompanying the living donor in the United States. This notice authorizes reimbursement for travel and subsistence expenses only. Types of travel expenses that will be supported include travel for donor evaluation, organ donation, and donor follow-up visit(s). Funds under this program cannot be used for reimbursement of blood, marrow, or tissue donation expenses. The authorizing statute allows the Secretary to support the reimbursement of additional incidental non-medical expenses by regulation. You, the applicant, should address in your proposal your approach to implement the reimbursement for other incidental non-medical expenses such as lost wages should the Secretary authorize them by regulation. In addition, the award recipient shall not use these funds to provide reimbursement to living organ donors if reimbursement or payment for qualified expenses was provided or can reasonably be expected to be provided: • by the recipient of the organ, or • under a State or Federal program or an insurance policy, or • by an entity that provides health services on a prepaid basis. The authorizing statute requires the award recipient to provide preference to living donors would be most likely unable to afford the qualified allowable expenses associated with the donation process.
