SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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.
    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.
