The original date that the comment period would end was March 5, 2010. That date will now be extended until April 5, 2010. Section 2031 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 (Pub.

The Administration has initiated the development of uniform planning standards for the development of water resources that would apply to water resources development programs and activities government-wide, to agencies in addition to the traditional water resources development agencies covered under the current Principles and Guidelines: the Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation (Interior), Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA), and Tennessee Valley Authority. Therefore, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), in coordination with the Office of Management and Budget, has implemented a two phase interagency process revising the planning guidance. The first phase focused on facilitating interagency revisions to the ‘‘Principles and Standards’’ (Chapter I of the existing P&G) of Principles and Guidelines for planning water resources projects. The second phase will address revisions to the Procedures (Chapters II through IV of the 1983 P&G). Upon approval of the revised ‘‘Principles and Standards’’ and the future revision of the Procedures, the entire revision will apply to Federal water resources implementation studies including project reevaluations and modifications except those commenced prior to the issuance of the revised guidance.

Dates: Applications Available: March 8, 2010. Deadline for Notice of Intent to Apply: April 5, 2010. Date of Pre-Application Meeting: March 26, 2010. Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: May 3, 2010. Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: July 2, 2010. Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) provides grants to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) and consortia of LEAs to support magnet schools that are part of an approved desegregation plan. Through the implementation of magnet schools, these program resources can be used in pursuit of the objectives of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which supports State and local efforts to enable all elementary and secondary students to achieve to high standards and holds schools, LEAs, and States accountable for ensuring that their students do so. In particular, the MSAP provides an opportunity for eligible entities to focus on expanding their capacity to provide public school choice to students who attend schools identified for improvement, corrective action, or restructuring under Title I, Part A of the ESEA. Priorities: This competition includes four competitive preference priorities which are explained in the following paragraphs. Competitive Preference Priorities: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(ii), Priorities 1, 2, and 3 are from the regulations for this program (34 CFR 280.32). Priority 4 is from the notice of final priority for this program, published in the Federal Register on March 9, 2007 (72 FR 10729). PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9879 For FY 2010, these priorities are competitive preference priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(2)(i) we award up to an additional 40 points to an application, depending on how well the application meets these priorities. The maximum possible points for each priority are indicated in parentheses following the title of the competitive preference priority. These points are in addition to any points the application earns under the selection criteria. These priorities are: Priority 1—Need for assistance (up to 10 additional points). The Secretary evaluates the applicant’s needs for assistance under the MSAP regulations in 34 CFR part 280, by considering— (a) The costs of fully implementing the magnet schools project as proposed; (b) The resources available to the applicant to carry out the project if funds under the program were not provided; (c) The extent to which the costs of the project exceed the applicant’s resources; and (d) The difficulty of effectively carrying out the approved plan and the project for which assistance is sought, including consideration of how the design of the magnet schools project— e.g., the type of program proposed, the location of the magnet school within the LEA—impacts on the applicant’s ability to carry out the approved plan successfully. Priority 2—New or revised magnet school projects (up to 10 additional points). The Secretary determines the extent to which the applicant proposes to carry out new magnet schools projects or significantly revise existing magnet schools projects. Priority 3—Selection of students (up to 10 additional points). The Secretary determines the extent to which the applicant proposes to select students to attend magnet schools by methods such as lottery, rather than through academic examination. Priority 4—Expanding Capacity to Provide Choice (up to 10 additional points). This priority supports projects that will— (1) Help parents whose children attend low-performing schools (that is, schools that have been identified for school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended) by— (a) Selecting schools identified for school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring under Title I as magnet schools to be funded under this project and improving the quality of teaching and instruction in these schools; or E:\FR\FM\04MRN1.SGM 04MRN1

P&G).
    Upon approval of the revised ``Principles and Standards'' and the
