Start Preamble

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.215X.


On December 6, 2005, we published in the Federal Register (70 FR 72624) a notice inviting applications for the Teaching American History program's FY 2006 competition. The original notice for this FY 2006 competition established a February 3, 2006, deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program. For this competition, applicants are required to submit their applications electronically through the Department's Electronic Grant Application System (e-Application). In order to accommodate a move of the e-Application system, which will result in the unavailability of the system on the original deadline date, we are extending the deadline date for transmittal of applications for the Teaching American History program FY 2006 competition.


Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: February 9, 2006. (Applications must be received by e-Application no later than 4:30 p.m., Washington, DC time.)


Applications for grants under the Teaching American History program must be submitted electronically using e-Application available through the Department's e-Grants system. You may not e-mail an electronic copy of a grant application to us. For information about how to submit your application electronically, please refer to section IV. 6. Other Submission Requirements in the December 6, 2005 notice (70 FR 72624). We have not extended the deadline for submitting a statement that an applicant qualifies for an exception to the electronic submission requirement.

Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: The deadline date for Intergovernmental Review under Executive Order 12732 is extended to April 10, 2006.
