On December 19, 2007, we published in the Federal Register (72 FR 71880) a notice inviting applications for Part I and Part II of the Formula Grant Electronic Application System for Indian Education (EASIE). The December 19, 2007 notice established an April 4, 2008 deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under Part II of the Formula Grants to LEAs program, and provided that applications or data submissions under Part II would be accepted only from those eligible applicants who met the Part I deadline of January 31, 2008. We are extending the Part II application deadline date to April 23, 2008, for those eligible applicants who met the Part I deadline of January 31, 2008. The change in the deadline date for Part II applications is due to the unavailability of the application system for Part II during the dates published in the Federal Register. As a result of this extension of the deadline date for Part II applications, we also are extending the intergovernmental review period required under Executive Order 12372 to July 23, 2008. Applicants must refer to the Application Notice for all other requirements concerning this program.
