The BIA is extending the deadline for filing applications for replacement school construction projects in response to the requests of tribal organizations and school boards expressed through the tribal consultation process and other communications. The tribes and school boards asked the BIA to extend the deadline for filing applications so they may have more time to complete their applications, to obtain the required tribal resolutions supporting submission of the applications, and to receive training from the BIA on application completion. In addition, the BIA has changed the address for filing applications to the Office of Facilities Management and Construction because that office is now responsible for coordinating the receipt of applications.
Applications will be accepted beginning August 1, 2001, until October 22, 2001. As stated in the Federal Register notice of June 11, 2001 (66 FR 31248), we will use the criteria in the 2001 instructions to review and evaluate all applications that we receive on or before the deadline.
This Notice is published under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Interior to the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs in the Departmental Manual at 209 DM 8.1. 25 U.S.C. 2005(c) directed BIA to publish, in the Federal Register, the system used to determine priorities for school construction projects, and to submit a current priority ranking for school construction projects at the time any budget request is presented to Congress.Start Signature
