Office of the Deputy Secretary, Department of Education.


Notice extending the deadline of the fiscal year (FY) 2013 Race to the Top—District competition for certain local educational agencies.

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.416.


The Secretary is extending the application deadline in the FY 2013 Race to the Top—District competition for certain local educational agencies (LEAs). The Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and submission of applications by potential applicants adversely affected by flooding in certain counties in Colorado. The extension is intended to help these potential applicants compete fairly with other applicants in this competition.


Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: For LEAs located in Colorado counties designated for Individual Assistance or Public Assistance under the Presidential major disaster (DR-4145) or emergency (EM-3365) declarations resulting from the September 2013 severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides (the Affected Counties), and for consortium applicants that include one or more LEAs located in those counties, the new deadline is 4:30:00 p.m. Washington, DC time on Thursday, October 10, 2013.
