THIS MESSAGE: Informs you of when you may begin to submit disbursements for the Federal Grant Program for the 2000-2001 award year

The Federal Pell Grant Program will begin accepting disbursement
records for the 2000-2001 award year beginning June 21, 2000. Please
do not submit disbursement records prior to June 21, 2000.

June 21, 2000 is the first date of the valid date range for
disbursements submitted to RFMS for the 2000-2001 award year.
Please keep in mind that while disbursement records will be accepted,
processed and acknowledgements will be returned, funds will not be
available for drawdown until July 1, 2000.

While the Recipient Financial Management System (the system that
processes records for the Federal Pell Grant Program) will be
accepting disbursement records beginning on June 21, 2000, it is
possible if you are:

- using a homegrown system

- using third party software

- a combo school

- a school using a combination of institutional or third party
software and EDExpress

that you might not yet be able to submit those records. Please consult
with your internal Information Systems department or software
provider to determine when you will be able to submit disbursement

EDExpress users using version 6.2 can submit disbursement records
beginning June 21, 2000.

If you have further questions or concerns please call the Pell
Customer Service Hotline at 1-800-4PGRANT (800-474-7268) or e-mail
