On March 21, 2005, we published a notice in the Federal Register (70 FR 13486) inviting applications for new awards under the Teacher Quality Enhancement Grants Program—Recruitment Grants for States and Partnerships. We received a significant number of applications in this competition and made 20 new grant awards. Because such a large number of high-quality applications were received, many applications that were awarded high scores by peer reviewers did not receive funding in FY 2005.
The Department estimates that there will be approximately $2.6 million available for new awards under this program in FY 2007. In order to conserve funding that would have been required for a peer review of new applications submitted under the program, we intend to select grantees in FY 2007 from the existing slate of applicants. This slate was developed during the FY 2005 competition using the selection criteria in the March 21, 2005 notice. No changes to the selection criteria will be required by this action.
