Start Preamble


Notice to change deadline for intergovernmental review.


On March 29, 2001 (66 FR 17163), the Department published a notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year 2001. The notice established May 22, 2001 as the deadline for intergovernmental review. The Secretary changes the deadline for intergovernmental review for the Reading Excellence Program grant competition. The Secretary takes this action to expedite the awarding of grants, which in turn will allow States more time to implement their grant programs.


The new deadline for intergovernmental review is June 6, 2001. The deadline for transmittal of applications remains May 7, 2001.
