The Assistant Secretary extends the deadline dates for the Start Printed Page 61331submission of applications for several Rehabilitation Training: Rehabilitation Long-Term Training programs. In all of the affected competitions, the Assistant Secretary is making new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2008. The Assistant Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and submission of applications by potential applicants affected by the wildfires in southern California. The extension of the application deadline date for these competitions is intended to help potential applicants compete fairly with other applicants under these programs.
Information related to each of these competitions can be found under the chart entitled “List of Programs Affected” in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice.

You must provide a certification in your application that you meet one of these criteria for submitting an application on the Extended Deadline and be prepared to provide appropriate supporting documentation, if requested. The submission of the electronic application serves as your attestation that you meet the criteria for submitting an application on the Extended Deadline.
The new deadline date for transmitting applications under each competition is listed with that competition in the chart entitled “List of Programs Affected” in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. As these programs are subject to Executive Order 12372, the relevant deadline for intergovernmental review is also indicated in this chart.
