notice inviting applications (NIA) for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 
2020 for the Native Hawaiian Education (NHE) program, Catalog of 
Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 84.362A. Since that time, 
Congress passed and the President signed the Department of Education 
Appropriations Act, 2020 (Act), which provides funding for the awards 
under this competition. For fiscal year (FY) 2020, the Act overrides 
the limitation in section 6205(b) of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act 
(ESEA), to provide that the 5 percent limitation on the use of funds 
for administrative purposes applies only to direct administrative 
costs. This document amends the NIA to clearly indicate that the 
administrative cost cap in ESEA section 6205(b) applies only to direct 
administrative costs for grants awarded using FY 2020 appropriations.

DATES: Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: February 11, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Following publication of the NIA (84 FR 
68154), Congress passed and the President signed the Act, which 
provides funding for the awards under this competition. The Act 
provides that the 5 percent limitation in section 6205(b) of the ESEA 
on the use of funds for administrative purposes applies only to direct 
administrative costs. Accordingly, we are amending the NIA to notify 
prospective applicants that no more than five percent of funds awarded 
for a FY 2020 grant under this program may be used for direct 
administrative costs. Pursuant to this language, for funds awarded in 
this competition for the NHE program, this five percent limit only
