Notice reopening the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Projects fiscal year (FY) 2010 competition.
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.133P-1.
On December 11, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 65765-65769) a notice inviting applications for the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training Projects FY 2010 competition. The notice established a February 9, 2010 Start Printed Page 13112deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program.
The Department of Education announces the reopening of the competition for new awards under National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR)—Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program—Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Projects for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010.
We are establishing a new deadline date for the transmittal of applications. We are taking this action because the recent closure of the U.S. Federal government on February 5, 8, and 9, 2010 due to blizzard conditions in the Mid-Atlantic Region may have interfered with applicants' ability to access needed technical assistance through the e-Grants Help Desk. The reopening is intended to ensure that all potential applicants have the opportunity to submit applications under this competition. If you have already successfully submitted an e-application for this grant competition, you do not need to resubmit your application.
Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: April 1, 2010.
Applications for grants under this program must be submitted electronically using e-Application, accessible through the Department of Education's e-grants Web site at: http://e-grants.ed.gov.
For information about how to submit your application electronically, please refer to Electronic Submission of Application in the December 11, 2010 notice (74 FR 65765-65769). We encourage applicants to submit their applications as soon as possible to avoid any problems with filing electronic applications on the last day.Start Further Info
