Abstract: The Gulf Coast Recovery Grant (GCRG) is a new program authorized in Public Law 111-117—the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010. The Act reserves $12 million for competitive grants to provide funding to local educational agencies (LEA) in counties in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas that were designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as counties eligible for Individual Assistance due to damage caused by Hurricanes Katrina, Ike, or Gustav. Funds can be used to improve education through such activities as replacing instructional materials and equipment; paying teacher incentives; constructing, modernizing, or renovating school buildings; beginning or expanding Advanced Placement or other rigorous instructional curricula; starting or expanding charter schools, and supporting after-school or extended learning time activities.
The requirements under this grant include information collection activity covered under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The activity consists of the development of a new application for a LEA to submit to the Department to apply for FY 2010 funds.
This information collection is being submitted under the Streamlined Clearance Process for Discretionary Grant Information Collections (1894-0001). Therefore, the 30-day public comment period notice will be the only public comment notice published for this information collection.
