Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION:

Notice of intent to fund down the grant slate from fiscal year (FY) 2010.

SUMMARY:

The Secretary intends to use the grant slate developed in FY 2010 for the TRTW Program authorized by Section 872 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), 20 U.S.C. 1161s, to make new grant awards in FY 2011. The Secretary takes this action because a significant number of high-quality applications remain on the FY 2010 grant slate and limited funding is available for new grant awards in FY 2011. Specifically, we expect to use an estimated $998,000 for new awards in FY 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On July 2, 2010, we published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 38510) inviting applications for FY 2010 for new awards under the TRTW Program (FY 2010 NIA).

In response to the FY 2010 NIA, we received a significant number of high-quality applications for grants under the TRTW Program and made four grant awards. Because such a large number of high-quality applications were received, many applications that received high scores by peer reviewers did not receive funding.

To conserve funding that would be required for a peer review of new grant applications submitted under this program and to instead use those funds to support grant activities, we will select grantees in FY 2011 from the existing slate of applicants developed during the FY 2010 competition using the priority, selection criteria, and application requirements referenced in the Federal Register notice published on July 2, 2010.
