Application Process and Submission Information: The application process for the Indian Education Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies program has changed to the Formula Grant EASIE, an easy-to-use, electronic application system. Formula Grant EASIE provides special features that will progressively enhance data availability and performance reporting for applicants, including the use of data from State submissions to EDFacts, the Department’s data collection system which contains performance information from State educational agencies about schools and Federal education programs. To the extent that your State has provided the necessary EDFacts data files, Formula Grant EASIE will be able to interface with EDFacts and pull those LEA-specific data into the application. Additionally, this new system allows the Department to review applications and interact online with applicants during the application review and approval process. Although you may download and print sample forms from the system, the application must be submitted PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 electronically through the Formula Grant EASIE unless you do not have Internet access and have made prior arrangements with the Department.

If you are approved to submit a paper application, you must meet the submission deadlines included in this notice. Registration for Formula Grant EASIE is required. For information on how to register, contact the EDFacts Partner Support Center listed elsewhere in this notice under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The Formula Grant EASIE application is divided into two parts—Part I and Part II. Part I, Student Count, provides the appropriate data entry screens to submit your Indian student count totals. Part II, Program and Budget Information, provides your award amount based on the Indian student count total submitted under Part I. Part II also enables you to enter student performance data, identify your project’s services and activities, and build a realistic program budget based on a known grant amount. Based on student assessment data, you will select your program objectives and services from a variety of menu options that were designed with grantee input. Estimated Available Funds: The Administration has requested $95,331,000 for this program for FY 2008. The actual level of funding, if any, depends on final Congressional action. However, we are inviting applications to allow enough time to complete the grant process if Congress appropriates funds for this program. Estimated Range of Awards: $4,000– $2,000,000. Estimated Average Size of Awards: $75,660. Estimated Number of Awards: 1,260. Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice and funding levels may change based on final appropriations for the program. Project Period: 12 months.
