The notice inviting applications established a February 3, 2014, deadline for the submission of applications. That same day, because of technical difficulties and to ensure the accuracy of information in the application package, the Department withdrew the application package from the Education Publications Center for a period of 18 hours. To ensure that all interested parties are provided a minimum of 90 days to submit their applications, we are extending the application period for one day to February 4, 2014. Consequently, we are also extending the deadline for intergovernmental review to April 5, 2014. All other information in the November 5, 2013, notice, including the two absolute priorities, remains the same.
