Summary: An institution of higher education (IHE) that is designated an eligible institution under the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and HSI Programs may receive a waiver of certain non-Federal share requirements under the Federal Work Study (FWS) and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Programs. The SIP, TCCU, and ANNH Programs are authorized under Title III, Part A of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). The HSI Program is authorized under Title V of the HEA. The FWS and FSEOG Programs are authorized under Title IV of the HEA.
On November 16, 2000 and December 26, 2001, we published Federal Register notices (65 FR 69291-69293 and 66 FR 66407-66409) that announced the processes for IHEs to apply for eligibility designation for FY 2001 and FY 2002 for the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and the HSI Programs. Some IHEs did not meet the established deadlines for submitting the applications, and therefore were not designated eligible to receive waivers of certain cost-sharing requirements under the FWS and FSEOG Programs. We are reopening the FY 2001 and FY 2002 eligibility processes to allow IHEs to apply for designation as eligible institutions under the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and HSI Programs for the limited purpose of receiving waivers of certain non-Federal share requirements of the FWS and FSEOG Programs for FY 2001 and FY 2002.
