SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 11, 2007, we published a notice in 
the Federal Register (72 FR 37735-37740) inviting applications for new 
awards under the HSI Program.
    We received a large number of high-quality applications and awarded 
30 new grants from the slate. However, many applications that were 
given high scores by peer reviewers did not receive funding in FY 2007.
    Based on the anticipated FY 2008 appropriation level, funding is 
expected for new awards under the HSI program. To conserve funding that 
would have been required for a peer review of new grant applications 
and to use those funds instead to support grant activities, we will 
select grantees in FY 2008 from the FY 2007 slate of applicants. This 
slate was developed during the FY 2007 competition using the selection 
criteria, application requirements, priorities, and definitions 
referenced in the notice inviting applications that was published in 
the Federal Register on July 11, 2007 (72 FR 37735). No changes to the 
selection criteria, application requirements, and definitions are 
required by this action.
    The CCRAA (Pub. L. 110-84) provided $100 million for additional 
awards to Hispanic-serving institutions for FYs 2008 and 2009. Further 
information about the criteria and priorities applicable to these 
additional awards and the Secretary's plans for conducting the FY 2008 
competition under the CCRAA, including workshops, will be forthcoming.

    Note: All Individual Development grant applicants that received 
a peer review score of 96 or above in the FY 2007 HSI Program 
competition and did not receive funding in the FY 2007 competition 
for the HSI Program MUST apply for FY 2008 Title III/V eligibility 
to be eligible to receive a grant for FY 2008. We intend to publish 
the notice inviting applications for designation as an Eligible 
Institution under Title III and Title V of the Higher Education Act 
of 1965, as amended, for FY 2008 in January 2008.
