for the 1997-98 award year (July 1, 1997 through June 30, 1998) to
submit a Campus-Based Reallocation Form to request supplemental FWS
funds for the 1998-99 award year (July 1, 1998 through June 30, 1999).
The information collected is used to determine whether an institution
is eligible to receive supplemental FWS funds for the 1998-99 award
DATE: Closing Date for Submitting a Campus-Based Reallocation Form. If
an institution that participated in the FWS Program for the 1997-98
award year wants to ensure that it will be considered for supplemental
FWS funds for the 1998-99 award year, the institution must submit the
Campus-Based Reallocation Form by July 17, 1998. The Department will
not accept a form submitted by facsimile transmission.
ADDRESSES: Campus-Based Reallocation Form Delivered by Mail. The
Campus-Based Reallocation Form delivered by mail must be addressed to
Mr. Milton Thomas, Jr., Institutional Financial Management Division,
U.S. Department of Education, P.O. Box 23781, Washington, D.C. 20026-
0781. An applicant must show proof of mailing consisting of one of the
following: (1) a legibly dated U.S. Postal Service postmark; (2) a
legible mail receipt with the date of the mailing stamped by the U.S.
Postal Service; (3) a dated shipping label, invoice, or receipt from a
commercial carrier; or (4) any other proof of mailing acceptable to the
Secretary of Education.
If a Campus-Based Reallocation Form is sent through the U.S. Postal
Service, the Secretary does not accept either of the following as proof
of mailing: (1) a private metered postmark, or (2) a mail receipt that
is not dated by the U.S. Postal Service. An institution should note
that the U.S. Postal Service does not uniformly provide a dated
postmark. Before relying on this method, an institution should check
with its local post office. An institution is encouraged to use
certified or at least first-class mail.
Campus-Based Reallocation Form Delivered by Hand. A Campus-Based
Reallocation Form delivered by hand must be taken to Mr. Milton Thomas,
Jr., Campus-Based Financial Operations Branch, Institutional Financial
Management Division, Accounting and Financial Management Service,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department will reallocate unexpended
FWS Federal funds from the 1997-98 award year as supplemental
allocations for the 1998-99 award year under the FWS Program.
Supplemental allocations will be issued this fall in accordance with
the reallocation procedures contained in the Higher Education Act of
1965, as amended (HEA). Under section 442(e) of the HEA, unexpended FWS
funds returned to the Secretary must be reallocated to eligible
institutions that used at least 10 percent of the total FWS Federal
funds granted to the institution to compensate students employed in
community services. Because reallocated FWS funds will be distributed
on the basis of fair share shortfall criteria, institutions must also
have a fair share shortfall to receive these funds. A fair share
shortfall means that an institution has an unmet need for FWS funds as
determined by the FWS allocation formula in the HEA that uses data
reported by the institution on its Fiscal Operations Report and
Application to Participate (FISAP).
Institutions must use all the reallocated FWS Federal funds to
compensate students employed in community services. To ensure
consideration for supplemental FWS Federal funds for the 1998-99 award
year, an institution must submit the Campus-Based Reallocation Form by
July 17, 1998.
