Under the SFSF program, the U.S. Department of Education awards funds to Governors to help stabilize State and local budgets in order to minimize and avoid reductions in education and other essential services, in exchange for a State’s commitment to advance essential education reform in four areas: (1) Making improvements in teacher effectiveness and in the equitable distribution of qualified teachers for all students, particularly students who are most in need; (2) establishing pre-K-tocollege-and-career data systems that track progress and foster continuous improvement; (3) making progress toward rigorous college- and careerready standards and high-quality assessments that are valid and reliable for all students, including limited English proficient students and students with disabilities; and (4) providing targeted, intensive support and effective interventions for the lowest-performing schools. Section 14008 of ARRA requires each State receiving funds to submit an annual report to the Secretary, at such time and in such manner as the Secretary may require, that describes: (1) The uses of funds provided under this title within the State; (2) How the State distributed the funds it received under this title; (3) The number of jobs that the Governor estimates were saved or created with funds the State received under this title; (4) Tax increases that the Governor estimates were averted because of the availability of funds from this title; (5) The State’s progress in reducing inequities in the distribution of highly qualified teachers, in implementing a State longitudinal data system, and in developing and implementing valid and reliable assessments for limited English proficient students and children with disabilities; (6) The tuition and fee increases for in-State students imposed by public institutions of higher education in the State during the period of availability of funds under this title, and a description VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:21 Nov 02, 2010 Jkt 223001 of any actions taken by the State to limit those increases; (7) The extent to which public institutions of higher education maintained, increased, or decreased enrollment of in-State students, including students eligible for Pell Grants or other need-based financial assistance; and (8) A description of each modernization, renovation and repair project funded, which shall include the amounts awarded and project costs. Each State will submit to the Department two SFSF annual reports. The initial report will be due to the Department by February 18, 2011. This report will cover the period from the State’s receipt of SFSF funds through September 30, 2010. Each State must submit its final SFSF report by February 18, 2012. The final report will provide data for the period extending through September 30, 2011, the deadline for obligation of SFSF funds. The Department will, with the assistance of a contractor, evaluate the information in each report and use the data to prepare for the Congress the Secretary’s Report required under Section 14110 of the ARRA. In addition, the data will inform the Department’s administration and oversight of the program. In particular, it will provide useful information on the uses and impact of SFSF funds.

Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the TS Program is to identify qualified individuals with potential for education at the postsecondary level and encourage them to complete secondary school and undertake a program of postsecondary education.

Priorities: Under this competition we are particularly interested in applications that address the following priorities. Invitational Priorities: For FY 2011 these priorities are invitational priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(1) we do not give an application that meets these invitational priorities a competitive or absolute preference over other applications. These priorities are: Invitational Priority 1: The Secretary encourages applicants to propose projects that provide services to students enrolled in schools that are not currently being served by a Talent Search project, especially schools that the State has identified as the persistently lowest-achieving schools. Invitational Priority 2: The Secretary encourages applicants to work with appropriate State agencies to use data from State longitudinal data systems or to obtain data from reliable third-party sources when providing information on the implementation of their Talent PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67705 Search projects and their participants’ outcomes. Invitational Priority 3: The Secretary encourages applicants to coordinate project services with school-level partners and other community resources in order to carry out projects that are cost-effective and best meet students’ needs. Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1070a–11– 1070a–12. Applicable Regulations: (a) The Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75 (except for §§ 75.215 through 75.221), 77, 79, 80, 82, 84, 85, 86, 97, 98 and 99.

Estimated Available Funds: The Administration has requested $853.1 million for the Federal TRIO Programs for FY 2011, of which we intend to use an estimated $142.1 million for the TS Program. 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: $230,000–$702,000. Estimated Average Size of Awards: $306,168. Maximum Award: • An applicant not currently receiving a TS Program grant: For an applicant who is not currently receiving a TS Program grant, the maximum award amount is $230,000 and the project must serve a minimum of 500 participants, based upon a per participant cost of no more than (or not to exceed) $460. • An applicant currently receiving a TS Program grant: For an applicant who is currently receiving a TS Program grant, the maximum award amount is the greater of (a) $230,000 or (b) an amount equal to 103 percent of the applicant’s grant award amount for FY 2009 or FY 2010, whichever is greater.
