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.


Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.370A.

Summary: 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 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 new deadline date is:

Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: July 13, 2009.

Applications for grants under this competition must be submitted in paper format by mail or hand delivery. For information (other than the deadline for submission) about how to submit your application, please refer to section IV.6. Other Submission Requirements in the April 23, 2009 Federal Register notice (74 FR 18527).


For all applicants who previously submitted an application in accordance with the April 23, 2009 Federal Register notice with the original application deadline of May 26, 2009; you must submit a new application. The current application package is posted on the program's Web site at:
