ACTION: Notice reopening the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems fiscal year (FY) 2009 competition. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On June 26, 2008, we published in the Federal Register (73 FR 36305) a notice inviting applications for the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems FY 2009 competition. That notice established a September 25, 2008, deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program. As a result of the notice published on June 26, 2008, 34 eligible entities submitted applications. A number of applicants, however, experienced difficulty with submitting their applications electronically, and, as a result, a few applications were received shortly after the original deadline. In order to ensure fairness and afford as many eligible applicants as possible an opportunity to be considered for funding under this program, we are reopening the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems FY 2009 competition to eligible applicants that were not able to submit applications by the original deadline date. Thus, we will consider as received timely, all of the applications we received through Grants.gov to this date, and will consider as timely any additional applications or amendments submitted through paper submission by the new deadline date established in this notice. All information in the June 26, 2008 notice remains the same for new applications and revisions to previously submitted applications submitted in response to this reopening notice, except for the following updates to the DATES section and section V. Submission of Applications. E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
