For the 36-month projects funded in fiscal year (FY) 2012 under the Territories and Freely Associated States Education Grant (T&FASEG) program, the Secretary waives the requirement that prohibits the extension of project periods involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. The Secretary also extends the project period of these grants for up to an additional 24 months. The waiver and extension enables the five current T&FASEG grantees to continue to receive Federal funding annually for project periods through FY 2016 and possibly through FY 2017. In addition, during this period, the Pacific Regional Educational Laboratory (Pacific REL) will continue to receive funds set aside for technical assistance under the T&FASEG program. Further, the waiver and extension mean that we will not announce a new competition or make new awards in FY 2015.

The Secretary proposes to waive the requirements that generally prohibit project period extensions involving the obligation of additional Federal funds, and to extend the project period of the four currently-funded Literacy Information and Communication System (LINCS) Regional Professional Development Centers (RPDC) program grants for one year. The proposed waiver and extension would enable these grantees to receive funding for FY 2015 (through September 30, 2016), using FY 2014 funds. The Secretary proposes this action because we do not believe that it would be in the public interest to hold a LINCS RPDC competition during a period of significant change for State grantees transitioning to new program requirements under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
