Dates: Applications Available: July 9, 2007. Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: August 8, 2007. Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: September 7, 2007. Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The Grants to Address Youth Violence and Related Issues in Persistently Dangerous Schools Program supports the implementation of programs, activities, and strategies that address youth violence and related issues in local educational agencies (LEAs) with schools that have been identified as persistently dangerous for school year 2006–2007 pursuant to section 9532 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Priority: We are establishing this priority for the FY 2007 grant competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition, in accordance with section 437(d)(1) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), 20 U.S.C. 1232(d)(1). Absolute Priority: This priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet this priority. E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 37206 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 130 / Monday, July 9, 2007 / Notices rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES This priority is: This priority supports LEA projects that are designed to address violence and related issues, such as gang activity, in schools operated by the LEA that have been identified by the State (consistent with the requirements in section 9532 of the ESEA) as persistently dangerous. Eligible LEAs may also propose activities that address violence and related issues in schools in the LEA that are at risk of becoming persistently dangerous based on objective criteria under the State’s definition of persistently dangerous, and system-wide activities that would prevent other schools operated by the LEA from being identified as persistently dangerous in the future. Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking: Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) the Department generally offers interested parties the opportunity to comment on proposed priorities. Section 437(d)(1) of GEPA, however, allows the Secretary to exempt from rulemaking requirements, regulations governing the first grant competition under a new or substantially revised program authority. This is the first grant competition for this program authorized as part of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans’ Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007 (Pub. L. 110–28) and therefore qualifies for this exemption. In order to ensure timely grant awards, the Secretary has decided to forego public comment on the priority under section 437(d)(1) of GEPA. This priority will apply to the FY 2007 grant competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition. Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 7131; Section 5502, Title V, Chapter 5, of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans’ Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007 (Pub. L. 110–28). Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR Parts 75, 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 84, 85, 97, 98, 99, and 299. II. Award Information Type of Award: Discretionary grants. Estimated Available Funds: $8,594,000. Contingent upon the availability of funds and the quality of applications, we may make additional awards in FY 2008 from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition. Estimated Range of Awards: $250,000–$3,000,000. Estimated Average Size of Awards: $661,000. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:59 Jul 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 Estimated Number of Awards: 13. Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice. Project Period: Up to 18 months. III. Eligibility Information 1. Eligible Applicants: LEAs in which at least one school was identified as persistently dangerous in the school year 2006–2007 and certified by the State, as part of the State educational agency’s (SEA’s) annual Consolidated State Performance Report, as a persistently dangerous school under section 9532 of the ESEA by March 31, 2007. 2. Cost Sharing or Matching: This competition does not require cost sharing or matching. 3. Other: (a) Equitable Participation by Private School Children and Teachers: Section 9501 of the ESEA requires that SEAs, LEAs, or other entities receiving funds under the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act provide for the equitable participation of private school children, their teachers, and other educational personnel in private schools located in areas served by the grant recipient. In order to ensure that grant program activities address the needs of private school children, LEAs must engage in timely and meaningful consultation with private school officials during the design and development of the program. This consultation must take place before any decision is made that affects the opportunities of eligible private school children, teachers, and other educational personnel to participate. In order to ensure equitable participation of private school children, teachers, and other educational personnel, an LEA must consult with private school officials on youth violence and related issues for private schools in the LEA’s service area. (b) Maintenance of Effort: Section 9521 of the ESEA requires that LEAs may receive a grant only if the SEA finds that the combined fiscal effort per student or the aggregate expenditures of the LEA and the State with respect to the provision of free public education by the LEA for the preceding fiscal year was not less than 90 percent of the combined effort or aggregate expenditures for the second preceding fiscal year.

Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools; Overview Information; 
Grants to Address Youth Violence and Related Issues in Persistently 
Dangerous Schools; Notice Inviting Applications for New Awards for 
Fiscal Year (FY) 2007

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.184V.

    Dates: Applications Available: July 9, 2007.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: August 8, 2007.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: September 7, 2007.

Full Text of Announcement

I. Funding Opportunity Description

    Purpose of Program: The Grants to Address Youth Violence and 
Related Issues in Persistently Dangerous Schools Program supports the 
implementation of programs, activities, and strategies that address 
youth violence and related issues in local educational agencies (LEAs) 
with schools that have been identified as persistently dangerous for 
school year 2006-2007 pursuant to section 9532 of the Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left 
Behind Act of 2001.
    Priority: We are establishing this priority for the FY 2007 grant 
competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the 
list of unfunded applicants from this competition, in accordance with 
section 437(d)(1) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), 20 
U.S.C. 1232(d)(1).
    Absolute Priority: This priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 
CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet this priority.

[[Page 37206]]

    This priority is:
    This priority supports LEA projects that are designed to address 
violence and related issues, such as gang activity, in schools operated 
by the LEA that have been identified by the State (consistent with the 
requirements in section 9532 of the ESEA) as persistently dangerous. 
Eligible LEAs may also propose activities that address violence and 
related issues in schools in the LEA that are at risk of becoming 
persistently dangerous based on objective criteria under the State's 
definition of persistently dangerous, and system-wide activities that 
would prevent other schools operated by the LEA from being identified 
as persistently dangerous in the future.
    Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking: Under the Administrative Procedure 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553) the Department generally offers interested parties 
the opportunity to comment on proposed priorities. Section 437(d)(1) of 
GEPA, however, allows the Secretary to exempt from rulemaking 
requirements, regulations governing the first grant competition under a 
new or substantially revised program authority. This is the first grant 
competition for this program authorized as part of the U.S. Troop 
Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability 
Appropriations Act, 2007 (Pub. L. 110-28) and therefore qualifies for 
this exemption. In order to ensure timely grant awards, the Secretary 
has decided to forego public comment on the priority under section 
437(d)(1) of GEPA. This priority will apply to the FY 2007 grant 
competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the 
list of unfunded applicants from this competition.
    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 7131; Section 5502, Title V, Chapter 
5, of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and 
Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007 (Pub. L. 110-28).
    Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR Parts 75, 77, 79, 80, 81, 
82, 84, 85, 97, 98, 99, and 299.

II. Award Information

    Type of Award: Discretionary grants.
    Estimated Available Funds: $8,594,000. Contingent upon the 
availability of funds and the quality of applications, we may make 
additional awards in FY 2008 from the list of unfunded applicants from 
this competition.
    Estimated Range of Awards: $250,000-$3,000,000.
    Estimated Average Size of Awards: $661,000.
    Estimated Number of Awards: 13.

    Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this 
notice.

    Project Period: Up to 18 months.

III. Eligibility Information

    1. Eligible Applicants: LEAs in which at least one school was 
identified as persistently dangerous in the school year 2006-2007 and 
certified by the State, as part of the State educational agency's 
(SEA's) annual Consolidated State Performance Report, as a persistently 
dangerous school under section 9532 of the ESEA by March 31, 2007.
    2. Cost Sharing or Matching: This competition does not require cost 
sharing or matching.
    3. Other: (a) Equitable Participation by Private School Children 
and Teachers: Section 9501 of the ESEA requires that SEAs, LEAs, or 
other entities receiving funds under the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and 
Communities Act provide for the equitable participation of private 
school children, their teachers, and other educational personnel in 
private schools located in areas served by the grant recipient. In 
order to ensure that grant program activities address the needs of 
private school children, LEAs must engage in timely and meaningful 
consultation with private school officials during the design and 
development of the program. This consultation must take place before 
any decision is made that affects the opportunities of eligible private 
school children, teachers, and other educational personnel to 
participate.
    In order to ensure equitable participation of private school 
children, teachers, and other educational personnel, an LEA must 
consult with private school officials on youth violence and related 
issues for private schools in the LEA's service area.
    (b) Maintenance of Effort: Section 9521 of the ESEA requires that 
LEAs may receive a grant only if the SEA finds that the combined fiscal 
effort per student or the aggregate expenditures of the LEA and the 
State with respect to the provision of free public education by the LEA 
for the preceding fiscal year was not less than 90 percent of the 
combined effort or aggregate expenditures for the second preceding 
fiscal year.

(e.g., search for 84.184, not 84.184V).
    Please note the following:
     Your participation in Grants.gov is voluntary.
     When you enter the Grants.gov site, you will find

retrieve your application from Grants.gov, we will notify you if we are 
rejecting your application because it was date and time stamped by the 
Grants.gov system after 4:30 p.m., Washington, DC time, on the 
application deadline date.
     The amount of time it can take to upload an application 
will vary depending on a variety of factors, including the size of the 
application and the speed of your Internet connection. Therefore, we 
strongly recommend that you do not wait until the application deadline 
date to begin the submission process through Grants.gov.
     You should review and follow the Education Submission 
Procedures for submitting an application through Grants.gov that are

typically provide on the following forms: Application for Federal 
Assistance (SF 424), the Department of Education Supplemental 
Information for SF 424, Budget Information--Non-Construction Programs

(GAN). We may notify you informally, also.
    If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, 
we notify you.
    2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify 
administrative and national policy requirements in the application 
package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable 
Regulations section in this notice.
    We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of 
an award in the Applicable Regulations section in this notice and 
include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also 
incorporates your approved application as part of your binding 
commitments under the grant.
    3. Reporting: At the end of your project period, you must submit a 
final performance report, including financial information, as directed 
by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an 
annual performance report that provides the most current performance 
and financial expenditures information as directed by the Secretary 
under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, please 
go to http://www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/appforms/appforms.html.
    4. Performance Measures: The Department has established the 
following Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) performance 
measures for the Grants to Address Youth Violence and Related Issues in 
Persistently Dangerous Schools program:
    (1) The percentage of grantees that experience a decrease in the 
number of the types of incidents that are included in the State's 
definition of persistently dangerous schools.
    (2) The percentage of grantees that experience a decrease in the 
number of schools in the LEA identified as persistently dangerous.
    (3) The percentage of grantees that experience a decrease in the 
number of students eligible to receive a transfer to a safe public 
school under section 9532 of the ESEA because they are victims of a 
violent criminal offense, as determined by State law, while in or on 
the grounds of a public elementary or secondary school that the 
students attend.

[[Page 37209]]

    These measures constitute the Department's indicator of success for 
this program. Consequently, we advise an applicant for a grant under 
this program to give careful consideration to these measures in 
conceptualizing the approach and evaluation for its proposed project. 
Each grantee will be required to provide, in its annual and final 
performance reports, data about its progress in meeting these measures.
