Start Preamble


The Secretary reopens the deadline dates for the transmittal of applications for several competitions. All of the affected competitions are among those under which the Secretary is making new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2004. The Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and transmittal of applications by potential applicants from counties designated as Federal disaster areas due to the California wildfires. The reopening of these deadline dates is intended to help the potential applicants compete fairly with other applicants under these programs.

Eligibility: The reopened deadline dates in this notice apply to you if you are a potential applicant from a county on the following list. The President has declared a major disaster for the following counties in California as a result of recent wildfires.

County: Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura.


The new deadline date for transmittal of applications under each competition is listed with that competition.

If the program in which you are interested is subject to Executive Order 12372, the deadline date for intergovernmental review remains as originally posted.


The address and telephone number for obtaining applications for, or information about, an individual program are in the original application notice for that program. We have listed the publication date and Federal Register citation of the original application notice for each program.

If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD), you may call the TDD number, if any, listed in the individual application notice. If we have not listed a TDD number, you may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339.
