DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Direct Grant Programs

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice reopening application deadline dates for certain direct 
grants.

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

SUMMARY: The Secretary reopens the deadline dates for the submission of 
applications by certain applicants (see Eligibility) under certain 
direct grant programs. All of the affected competitions are among those 
under which the Secretary is making new awards for fiscal year (FY) 
2001. The Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the 
preparation and submission of applications by potential applicants 
adversely affected by severe weather conditions resulting from Tropical 
Storm Allison. The reopenings are intended to help these potential 
applicants compete fairly with other applicants under these programs.

    Note: One of the affected programs or competitions is under the 
Office of Postsecondary Education and four are under the Office of 
Elementary and Secondary Education. You can find information related 
to each of these competitions under the ``List of Programs 
Affected'' in this notice.

    Eligibility: The extension of deadline dates in this notice applies

of Tropical Storm Allison. These areas include the following:
