Agency: Department of Education
Under the Small, Rural School Achievement (SRSA) Program, the Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education awards grants on a formula basis to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) to address the unique needs of rural school districts. In this notice, we establish the deadline for submission of fiscal year (FY) 2006 SRSA grant applications.

An eligible LEA that is required to submit an application (in other words, an LEA that did not submit an application in a prior year) must do so by the deadline in this notice in order to receive its grant award by September 30, 2006. An eligible LEA that is required to submit an application and does not do so by the deadline in this notice might not receive its grant award until after September 30, 2006.

Early Reading First; Notice Reopening the Early Reading First (ERF) Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 Competition
Document Number: 06-1993
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-03-02
Agency: Department of Education
On January 18, 2006, we published in the Federal Register (71 FR 2916) a notice inviting applications for the Early Reading First FY 2006 competition. The deadline date for eligible applicants to transmit their pre-applications for funding under this competition was February 21, 2006 (as announced in the correction notice in the Federal Register on January 24, 2006 (71 FR 3829)). We now are reopening the pre-application phase of the Early Reading First FY 2006 competition for two groups of eligible applicants: Group 1: To afford eligible applicants a further opportunity to complete the electronic submission of their pre-applications for funding under this program, including those who may have experienced difficulties with the registration process, we are reopening the pre- application phase of the Early Reading First FY 2006 competition until March 9, 2006 for all eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) that were previously included on the posted Early Reading First eligible LEA lists and for eligible entities located in communities served by those eligible LEAs (Group 1). These Group 1 applicants must submit their pre-applications electronically through Grants.gov as specified in the January 18, 2006 Federal Register notice inviting applications (Application Notice) (71 FR 2916). Group 1 applicants that submit their pre-applications pursuant to this notice must download, complete and submit an entirely new pre-application package through Grants.gov, as described in detail later in this notice under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION, A. Group 1 ApplicantsElectronic Submission Requirements, unless their previous submission was successfully submitted through Grants.gov by 4:30 p.m. (timely) or between 4:30 p.m. and midnight (late) on the original deadline of February 21, 2006. Group 2: We also are reopening the pre-application phase of the Early Reading First FY 2006 competition for eligible LEAs that were inadvertently omitted from the FY 2006 eligible LEA lists posted on the Early Reading First Web site and for eligible entities located in communities served by those LEAs (Group 2). These Group 2 applicants will have an additional 30-day period from the date of this notice to submit their pre-applications. These Group 2 applicants must submit their pre-applications in paper format by mail or hand delivery rather than electronically. Although the Department generally requires electronic submission of Early Reading First applications through Grants.gov, the Grants.gov system will not accept a limited category of pre-applications with a different deadline, such as these, within an overall competition. Therefore, the Department is requiring submission by paper format for this small group of eligible applicants. The new pre-application deadline dates for these two groups are as follows:

We also may use the priority and application requirements developed in FY 2005, and published in the Federal Register on June 21, 2005 (70 FR 35652), for competitions in FY 2006 and later years. We take this action to focus Federal financial assistance on supporting grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) that are at high risk for crisis situations, as well as those that have not yet received funding under this program. This action is also intended to modify an application requirement the Department established in FY 2005 for LEAs to support the implementation of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and to propose an additional application requirement for LEAs to develop written plans to address outbreaks of infectious diseases.
