ACTION: Notice of intent to fund down the grant slate for the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as Amended (AT Act)—Assistive Technology Alternative Financing Program (AFP). AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Secretary intends to use the grant slate developed for the AT Act AFP in Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 to make new grant awards in FY 2006. The Secretary takes this action because a significant number of high-quality applications remain on the last year’s grant slate and limited funding is available for new grant awards in FY 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeremy Buzzell, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 5025, Potomac Center Plaza, Washington, DC 20202–2800. Telephone: (202) 245–7319.

Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, or computer diskette) on request to the program contact person listed in this section. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Background On June 30, 2005, we published a notice in the Federal Register (70 FR 37794) inviting applications for new awards under the AT Act AFP. This notice indicated that the selection criteria, absolute priority, competitive preference priorities, and application requirements contained in the notice would apply to the FY 2005 grant competition only. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:13 Apr 26, 2006 Jkt 208001 We received a significant number of applications for AFP grants in FY 2005 and made eight new grant awards. Because some applications that met the same standard as those that received funding did not receive funding last year and limited funding is available for new awards under this program in FY 2006, we intend to select grantees in FY 2006 from the existing slate of applicants. This slate was developed during the FY 2005 competition using the selection criteria, absolute priority, competitive preference priorities, and application requirements included in the June 30, 2005, notice. No changes to the selection criteria, absolute priority, competitive preference priorities, or application requirements will be required by this action. DOE is developing for submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The proposed collection of information is in a final rule pertaining to test procedures for distribution transformers that DOE is publishing in the ‘‘Rules’’ section of today’s Federal Register.
