On December 21, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 67862) a notice inviting applications for the Excellence in Economic Education program's FY 2010 competition.

For this competition, applicants are required to submit their applications electronically through the Department's Electronic Grant Application System (e- Application). However, e-Application will not be available to users beginning Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 16, 2010. During this time the Department will transition the e-application process from the current system (GAPS) to a new system. Because e-Application will be unavailable for several days prior to the original deadline date, we are extending the deadline date for transmittal of applications for the Excellence in Economic Education program FY 2010 competition.
