Notice reopening the AP Test Fee fiscal year (FY) 2009 competition.


On October 31, 2008, we published in the Federal Register (73 FR 64928) a notice inviting applications for the AP Test Fee FY 2009 competition. That notice established a December 15, 2008 deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program.

In order to afford as many eligible applicants as possible an opportunity to receive funding under this program, we are reopening the AP Test Fee FY 2009 competition to eligible applicants that did not apply for funds by the December 15, 2008 deadline. An eligible applicant that submitted its application by the December 15, 2008 deadline does not need to re-submit its application. All information in the October 31, 2008 notice remains the same for this notice reopening the competition, except for the following updates to DATES.


Applications Available: January 8, 2009.

Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: January 15, 2009.


Applications for grants under this program must be submitted electronically using the Governmentwide Apply site at For information about how to submit your application electronically, please refer to Electronic Submission of Applications in the October 31, 2008 notice (73 FR 64929-64930). We encourage eligible applicants to submit their applications as soon as possible to avoid any problems with filing electronic applications on the last day.

Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: March 16, 2009.
