Office of Innovation and Improvement; Overview Information; DC School Choice Incentive Program; Notice Reopening Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 Competition for the DC School Choice Incentive Program.
Document Number: E9-15878
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-07-06
Agency: Department of Education
On April 23, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 18567) a notice inviting applications for new awards for FY 2009 for the DC School Choice Incentive Program. The original notice for the FY 2009 DC School Choice Incentive Program competition established a May 26, 2009, deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program. The notice in the Federal Register required applicants for this competition to submit their applications in paper format by mail or hand delivery. The application package and instructions on the Department's Web site, however, mistakenly instructed applicants to use the e-Grants.ed.gov Web site. Because of the differing instructions, we are reopening and establishing a new deadline for the submission of applications for the FY 2009 competition for the DC School Choice Incentive Program competition. Applicants must refer to the notice inviting applications for new awards that was published in the Federal Register on April 23, 2009 (74 FR 18567) for all other requirements concerning this reopened competition.

The Secretary takes this action because a number of high-quality applications remain on last year's grant slate. We expect to use an estimated $2,500,000 for new awards in FY 2009.
