Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the NHE program is to support innovative projects that recognize and address the unique educational needs of Native Hawaiians. These projects must include the activities authorized under section 6205(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA), and may include one or more of the activities authorized under section 6205(a)(3) of the ESEA. Note: The construction of facilities that support the operation of Native Hawaiian education programs will be a permissible activity only if Congress specifically authorizes the use of FY 2020 funds for this purpose. Background: The NHE program serves the unique educational needs of Native Hawaiians and recognizes the roles of Native Hawaiian languages and cultures in the educational success and longterm well-being of Native Hawaiian students. The program supports effective supplemental education programs that maximize participation of Native Hawaiian educators and leaders in the planning, development, implementation, management, and evaluation of programs designed to serve Native Hawaiians. The statute identifies as priority areas activities that include beginning reading and literacy among students in kindergarten through third grade, the needs of at-risk children and youth, needs in fields or disciplines in which Native Hawaiians are underemployed, and the use of the Hawaiian language in instruction. The NHE program requires that grantees focus on one or more of these priority areas. In addition, NHE grantees may undertake a broad array of activities to achieve these purposes, as described in section 6205(a)(3) of the ESEA, including several that are consistent with the Administration’s policy focus areas as expressed in the Department’s Notice of Final Supplemental Priorities and Definitions for Discretionary Grant Programs (Supplemental Priorities), published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2018 (83 FR 9096). For example, section 6205(a)(3)(F) of the ESEA authorizes the development of academic and vocational curricula to address the needs of Native Hawaiian children and adults, including curriculum materials in the Hawaiian language and mathematics and science curricula that incorporate Native Hawaiian traditions and culture. Similarly, Supplemental Priority 6 calls PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for projects in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, including computer science, that support student mastery of key prerequisites to ensure success in all STEM fields and expose students to building-block skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving, gained through hands-on, inquiry-based learning. As a second example, ESEA section 6205(a)(2)(C) prioritizes programs that are designed to support projects that address needs in fields or disciplines in which Native Hawaiians are underemployed. Similarly, Supplemental Priority 3(c) is designed to support projects providing workbased learning experiences (such as internships, apprenticeships, and fellowships) that align with in-demand industry sector or occupations (as defined in section 3(23) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA)). These two areas of alignment between the ESEA and the Supplemental Priorities will receive competitive preference points in this competition. We note that, under ESEA section 6205(b), no more than five percent of funds awarded for a grant for any fiscal year under this program may be used for administrative costs. Pursuant to this statutory language, in this and future competitions under this program, this five percent limit must include both direct and indirect administrative costs. The administrative cost cap will limit the amount of indirect costs that a grantee can charge to this grant to no more than five percent. We will provide guidance and webinars on this topic for potential applicants, following the publication of this notice. For more information, see the Funding Restrictions section of this notice. Priorities: This notice contains one absolute priority and two competitive preference priorities. Consistent with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), the absolute priority is from section 6205(a)(2) of the ESEA. In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(ii), the two competitive preference priorities are from the Supplemental Priorities. Absolute Priority: For FY 2020 and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applications from this competition, this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that meet this priority. An applicant may address one or more parts of the absolute priority. An applicant must clearly identify in its application which part or parts of the absolute priority its project will address. This priority is: E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1
