ACTION: Correction; Notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2007. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On June 20, 2007, we published in the Federal Register (72 FR 33986) a notice inviting applications for new awards for two fiscal year (FY) 2007 competitions under the Charter Schools Program (CFDA 84.282B and CFDA 84.282C). That notice incorrectly included Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire in the list of States that currently have approved applications under the CSP. Non-State educational agency (Non-SEA) eligible applicants in States that currently have approved applications under the CSP are ineligible to apply under these competitions and must contact the SEA for information related to the State’s CSP subgrant competition. Because Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire do not currently have approved applications under the CSP, non-SEA eligible applicants from these three states are, in fact, eligible to apply directly to the Department for CSP grants under these competitions. For these reasons, we are removing Alaska, Missouri, and New Hampshire from the list of States that currently have approved applications under the CSP. The Note on page 33986, in the third column, under III. Eligibility Information, 1. Eligible Applicants: Planning and Initial Implementation (CFDA No. 84.282B) is corrected to read as follows: Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin. In these States, non-SEA eligible applicants interested in participating in the CSP should contact the SEA for information related to the State’s CSP subgrant competition.
