The Department of Education (Department) reopens the competition for transmittal of applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2011 under the Promise Neighborhoods Program Implementation and Planning grant competitions. The Department takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and submission of applications by prospective eligible applicants affected by the severe storms, flooding, property damage, and loss of electrical power that occurred as a result of Hurricane Irene on the East Coast of the United States, beginning on August 26, 2011, and continuing through the publication of this notice. The reopening of the competitions is intended to help affected eligible applicants compete fairly with other eligible applicants under this competition. Due to the widespread impact of Hurricane Irene, the competition is reopened to all eligible applicants.
