Modification of notice published on March 28, 2001 inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2001.
Notice to Applicants: On March 28, 2001, the Secretary published in the Federal Register (66 FR 17036) a notice inviting applications for new awards for FY 2001 for the Tribally Controlled Postsecondary Vocational and Technical Institutions Program. This notice modifies the notice published on March 28, 2001 by reducing the project period under this competition from three years to one year and by extending the deadline for transmittal of applications under this competition to June 21, 2001. Under the program statute, the Secretary has the discretion to determine the length of project periods to be funded. As a result of concerns raised about the Department's implementation of the changes to the program resulting from the 1998 statutory reauthorization, the Secretary has determined that it is important to engage in a more extensive Start Printed Page 27081consultative process with Indian tribes and other interested parties about the future implementation of this program, as soon as possible, without unduly delaying this year's grant competition. Accordingly, the Secretary has determined that it is preferable to award grants for one-year project periods in FY 2001, rather than to award grants for three-year project periods. The extension of the application deadline is intended to provide eligible applicants, who have begun preparation of three-year project applications based on the March 28, 2001 notice, with additional time to revise their applications in accordance with this notice of modification.
New Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: June 21, 2001.
Project Period: 1 year.Start Further Info
