Reopening the Application for Title V Eligibility Designation for Fiscal Year 2014; Promoting Postbaccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans Program (PPOHA)




In this notice, the Department announces the reopening of the period for submitting an application for a designation of eligibility under the PPOHA program by those institutions that intend to apply for a grant under the PPOHA program to be announced later in 2014. The decision to hold a new competition for PPOHA was made after the FY 2014 Eligibility Notice deadline of March 7, 2014. The eligibility process is being reopened to allow institutions that have not yet applied for eligibility to submit applications. This limited reopening is intended to ensure that all potential applicants to the PPOHA program have the opportunity to submit applications for eligibility prior to the announcement of this competition. If you have already submitted an application for eligibility in response to the FY 2014 Eligibility Notice, you do not need to resubmit your application.
