Background Recent research confirms that the United States continues to have major problems associated with alcohol and other drug use on college campuses. Based on 2004 data from the Monitoring the Future study, approximately 39 percent of the Nation’s college students engaged in heavy drinking (defined as five or more drinks in a row) in the previous two weeks. The Core Institute 2003 Statistics on Alcohol and Other Drug Use on American Campuses report found that nearly 71 percent of underage students used alcohol and more than 21 percent of all students used an illicit drug within the 30 days prior to taking the survey. Survey data also indicate that drinking alcohol has, frequently, very negative consequences for college students. On the 2003 Core Institute survey, more than 32 percent of students reported that, in the year prior to the survey, they had gotten into an argument or fight as a result of their drinking, almost 30 percent reported that they had driven a car under the influence, almost 34 percent reported that they had missed a class because of their drinking, and almost 40 percent reported that they had done ‘‘something I later regretted’’ because of their drinking. The Department of Education seeks to support projects that address high-risk drinking and drug use and that can become practical models for replication PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17985 and adaptation in other college communities. The goals of this competition are to identify models of effective campus-based alcohol and other drug prevention programs and disseminate information about these programs to other colleges and universities where similar efforts may be adopted. Proposed Priority Under this priority the Department would provide funding to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) that have been implementing effective alcohol and other drug prevention programs on their campuses. An IHE that receives funding under this priority must identify, enhance, further evaluate, and disseminate information about an effective alcohol or other drug prevention program being implemented on its campus. To meet the priority, applicants must provide in their application— (1) A description of an alcohol or other drug prevention program that has been implemented for at least two full academic years on the applicant’s campus; (2) Evidence of the effectiveness of the program on the applicant’s campus; (3) A plan to enhance and further evaluate the program during the project period; and (4) A plan to disseminate information to assist other IHEs in implementing a similar program. Proposed Eligibility Requirements We propose that only institutions of higher education (IHEs) that offer an associate or baccalaureate degree will be eligible under this program. Additionally, to be eligible, an IHE must not have received an award under this grant competition (CFDA 84.184N) during the previous five fiscal years (fiscal years 2000 through 2004). Executive Order 12866 This notice of proposed priority and eligibility requirements has been reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866. Under the terms of the order, we have assessed the potential costs and benefits of this regulatory action. The potential costs associated with the notice of proposed priority and eligibility requirements are those resulting from statutory requirements and those we have determined as necessary for administering this program effectively and efficiently. In assessing the potential costs and benefits—both quantitative and qualitative—of this notice of proposed priority and eligibility requirements, we E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1 17986 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 67 / Friday, April 8, 2005 / Notices have determined that the benefits of the proposed priority and eligibility requirements justify the costs. Intergovernmental Review This program is subject to Executive Order 12372 and the regulations in 34 CFR part 79. One of the objectives of the Executive order is to foster an intergovernmental partnership and a strengthened federalism. The Executive order relies on processes developed by State and local governments for coordination and review of proposed Federal financial assistance.

Background

    Recent research confirms that the United States continues to have 
major problems associated with alcohol and other drug use on college 
campuses. Based on 2004 data from the Monitoring the Future study, 
approximately 39 percent of the Nation's college students engaged in 
heavy drinking (defined as five or more drinks in a row) in the 
previous two weeks. The Core Institute 2003 Statistics on Alcohol and 
Other Drug Use on American Campuses report found that nearly 71 percent 
of underage students used alcohol and more than 21 percent of all 
students used an illicit drug within the 30 days prior to taking the 
survey.
    Survey data also indicate that drinking alcohol has, frequently, 
very negative consequences for college students. On the 2003 Core 
Institute survey, more than 32 percent of students reported that, in 
the year prior to the survey, they had gotten into an argument or fight 
as a result of their drinking, almost 30 percent reported that they had 
driven a car under the influence, almost 34 percent reported that they 
had missed a class because of their drinking, and almost 40 percent 
reported that they had done ``something I later regretted'' because of 
their drinking.
    The Department of Education seeks to support projects that address 
high-risk drinking and drug use and that can become practical models 
for replication and adaptation in other college communities. The goals 
of this competition are to identify models of effective campus-based 
alcohol and other drug prevention programs and disseminate information 
about these programs to other colleges and universities where similar 
efforts may be adopted.

Proposed Priority

    Under this priority the Department would provide funding to 
Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) that have been implementing 
effective alcohol and other drug prevention programs on their campuses. 
An IHE that receives funding under this priority must identify, 
enhance, further evaluate, and disseminate information about an 
effective alcohol or other drug prevention program being implemented on 
its campus. To meet the priority, applicants must provide in their 
application--
    (1) A description of an alcohol or other drug prevention program 
that has been implemented for at least two full academic years on the 
applicant's campus;
    (2) Evidence of the effectiveness of the program on the applicant's 
campus;
    (3) A plan to enhance and further evaluate the program during the 
project period; and
    (4) A plan to disseminate information to assist other IHEs in 
implementing a similar program.

Proposed Eligibility Requirements

    We propose that only institutions of higher education (IHEs) that 
offer an associate or baccalaureate degree will be eligible under this 
program. Additionally, to be eligible, an IHE must not have received an 
award under this grant competition (CFDA 84.184N) during the previous 
five fiscal years (fiscal years 2000 through 2004).

Executive Order 12866

    This notice of proposed priority and eligibility requirements has 
been reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866. Under the terms 
of the order, we have assessed the potential costs and benefits of this 
regulatory action.
    The potential costs associated with the notice of proposed priority 
and eligibility requirements are those resulting from statutory 
requirements and those we have determined as necessary for 
administering this program effectively and efficiently.
    In assessing the potential costs and benefits--both quantitative 
and qualitative--of this notice of proposed priority and eligibility 
requirements, we

[[Page 17986]]

have determined that the benefits of the proposed priority and 
eligibility requirements justify the costs.

Intergovernmental Review

    This program is subject to Executive Order 12372 and the 
regulations in 34 CFR part 79. One of the objectives of the Executive 
order is to foster an intergovernmental partnership and a strengthened 
federalism. The Executive order relies on processes developed by State 
and local governments for coordination and review of proposed Federal 
financial assistance.
    This document provides early notification of our specific plans and 
actions for this program.
