On April 16, 2001, a notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2001 was published in the Federal Register (66 FR 19437—19471). This notice was a complete application package and contained all of the information, application forms, and instructions needed to apply for a grant under this program. The notice listed a deadline date of June 15, 2001, for the transmittal of applications and specified that applicants could submit their applications in either electronic or paper format.
Due to a power outage affecting the Department's Electronic Grant Application System (e-APPLICATION), applicants that intended to submit their applications in electronic format were unable to use the Internet-based electronic system for submitting applications on June 14-15 and consequently may have been unable to meet the application deadline date.
Since the deadline date has passed, this notice is intended to help potential applicants compete fairly under the Bilingual Education Comprehensive School Grants Program by reopening the competition for all applicants and establishing the new deadline dates specified below for transmittal of applications and intergovernmental review. You may submit your application to us in either electronic or paper format. You may access the electronic grant application at the following site: http://e-grants.ed.gov.
Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: July 2, 2001.
Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: August 30, 2001.Start Further Info
