Because grants in the programs to which this separate application process applies will likely be made after the Department adopts the requirements in 2 CFR part 200, we list as applicable regulations both those that are currently effective and those that will be effective at the time the Department makes grants. The current regulations follow: (a) The Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75, 77, 79, 80, 82, 84, 86, 97, 98, and 99. (b) The OMB Guidelines to Agencies on Governmentwide Debarment and Suspension (Nonprocurement) in 2 CFR part 180, as adopted as regulations of the Department in 2 CFR part 3485. At the time we award grants under this NIA, the following regulations will apply: (a) EDGAR in 34 CFR parts 75, 77, 79, 82, 84, 86, 97, 98, and 99. (b) The OMB Guidelines to Agencies on Governmentwide Debarment and Suspension (Nonprocurement) in 2 CFR part 180, as adopted as regulations of the Department in 2 CFR part 3485 and the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in 2 CFR part 200, as adopted in 2 CFR part 3474. Regardless of the timing of the publication of the interim final regulations, the following also will apply to this NIA: (a) The regulations for the Title III Programs in 34 CFR part 607, and for the HSI Program in 34 CFR part 606. (b) The notice of final requirements for the PPOHA Program, published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2010 (75 FR 44055). Note: There are no program-specific regulations for the Part A AANAPISI, Part A NASNTI, and Part A PBI programs or any of the Part F, Title III programs. Also, there have been amendments to the HEA since the Department last issued regulations for the programs established under Titles III and V of the statute. Accordingly, we encourage each potential applicant to read the applicable sections of the HEA in order to fully understand the eligibility requirements for the program for which they are applying. Please note that the Department is in the process of amending the Title III and Title V regulations. These updated regulations will include regulations for Part A AANAPISI, Part A NASNTI, and Part A PBI programs, as well as the Part F, Title III programs. Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 79 apply to all applicants except federally recognized Indian tribes. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Oct 31, 2014 Jkt 235001 Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 86 apply to institutions of higher education only.
