Eligible Applicants: A tribally controlled postsecondary career and technical institution that does not receive Federal support under the Tribally Controlled College or University Assistance Act of 1978 (25 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), or the Navajo Community College Act (25 U.S.C. 640a et seq.).

Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice. Project Period: Up to 60 months. Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: Section 117 of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Act or Perkins IV), authorizes the Secretary to make grants to tribally controlled postsecondary career and technical institutions that do not receive Federal support under the Tribally Controlled College or University Assistance Act of 1978 or the Navajo Community College Act to provide basic support for the education and training of Indian students in career and technical education programs. Statutory Changes Affecting TCPCTIP: For the convenience of applicants, we describe in this section the major statutory changes made to the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 (Perkins III), which was amended by the Act, that affect TCPCTIP. (a) Purpose. In the Act, Congress has expanded and added elements to the law’s statement of purpose, most significantly by stating that, among other statutory purposes, programs supported under the Act should build on the efforts of States and localities to develop challenging academic and technical standards and should assist students in meeting such standards, including student academic achievement standards, especially in preparation for high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand occupations in emerging or established professions. (20 U.S.C. 2301(1)) Congress also added to the statement of purpose a requirement that programs provide technical assistance that promotes leadership, initial preparation, and professional development at the State and local levels, and improves the quality of career and technical education teachers, faculty, administrators, and counselors. (20 U.S.C. 2301(5)) Additionally, the Act’s statement of purpose was amended to support partnerships among PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27297 secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, baccalaureate degreegranting institutions, area career and technical education schools, local workforce investment boards, business and industry, and intermediaries, and to provide career and technical education students with opportunities throughout their lifetimes to develop, in conjunction with other education and training programs, the knowledge and skills needed to keep the United States competitive. (20 U.S.C. 2301(6) and (7)) (b) Definitions. Congress replaced the term ‘‘vocational and technical education’’ with the term ‘‘career and technical education’’ throughout the Act. The term career and technical education is defined in section 3(5) of the Act and, for the convenience of potential applicants, is reiterated in the Definitions section of this notice. (20 U.S.C. 2302(5)(A)) (c) Annual needs estimates, facilities reports, and long-term facilities study. Congress eliminated the requirements that the Department prepare annual institutional needs estimates, facilities reports, and long-term facilities studies. (d) Indian student count. As described in detail elsewhere in this notice, the Act made changes to the statutory definition of the term ‘‘Indian student count.’’ These changes mean that the Department will require somewhat different certified data from grantees for grant calculations in years when the amounts appropriated for TCPCTIP are insufficient to pay the total allowable costs proposed by grantees. (e) Requirement for Complaint Resolution Procedure. The Act requires the Department to establish, after consultation with tribally controlled postsecondary career and technical institutions, a complaint resolution procedure for grant determinations and calculations. The Department developed what it believes is a fair, effective, and efficient complaint resolution procedure that will provide program grantees with a process for resolving complaints regarding grant determinations and grant amount calculations without resulting in inordinate delays in the grant award process. To effectuate the consultation process, the Department requested input from the two current TCPCTIP grantees on the procedure, placed the Department’s proposed procedure on the Department’s Web site, and made it available to the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC). The Department appreciated the input it received during the consultation process and carefully considered the suggestions provided in finalizing its complaint resolution procedure.
