On July 11, 2012, we published in the Federal Register (77 FR 40866) a notice inviting applications for new awards using fiscal year (FY) 2012 funds for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy Program (2012 notice). The 2012 notice erroneously listed deadline dates for intergovernmental review under Executive Order 12372 and its implementing regulations in 34 CFR part 79. The Secretary had decided to waive the EO 12372 review of the July 11, 2012 notice, as authorized under part 79, but the notice did not reflect that decision. The Secretary made the decision to waive this review because we would otherwise not be able to make timely grant awards for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy Program for FY 2012. We are correcting the 2012 notice to remove the requirement that applicants submit their applications for intergovernmental review.
