On May 6, 2005, we published in the Federal Register (70 FR 24012) a notice inviting applications for the Rehabilitation Short-Term Training—Client Assistance Program's FY 2005 competition. The Dear Colleague letter in the application package contained incorrect citations for the selection criteria to be used for this competition. The original notice for this FY 2005 competition established a June 20, 2005, deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program.
