ACTION:

Notice reopening the New Hurricane Education Recovery Awards fiscal year (FY) 2007 competition.

SUMMARY:

On July 16, 2007, we published in the Federal Register (72 FR 38827) a notice inviting applications for the New Hurricane Education Recovery Awards for FY 2007 competition. That notice established an August 17, 2007 deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for this funding. Only applicants who timely submitted a pre-application and received an e-mail from the Department with the applicant's calculated allotment for an award were eligible to submit a full application by the August 17, 2007 deadline.

In order to afford as many eligible applicants who timely submitted pre-applications as possible an opportunity to receive funding, we are reopening the New Hurricane Education Recovery Awards FY 2007 competition to eligible applicants who timely submitted a pre-application and received an e-mail from the Department with the applicant's calculated allotment for an award. Accordingly, the DATES section is updated as follows.

DATES:

Applications Available: August 27, 2007. Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: August 28, 2007.

Note:

Applications for grants under the Hurricane Education Recovery Awards must be submitted electronically using the Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site at http://www.grants.gov. For information about how to submit your application electronically, please refer to Electronic Submission of Applications in the July 16, 2007 notice (72 FR 38829-38830). We encourage eligible applicants to submit their applications as soon as possible to avoid any problems with filing electronic applications on the deadline date.
