SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 12, 2014, we published in the Federal Register (79 FR 14012) a notice inviting applications for the Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Programs grant competition. That notice established an April 28, 2014, deadline for submitting an application. For prospective applicants who were adversely affected by severe weather in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, and Mississippi on April 27, 2014, we are extending the deadline so that they have sufficient time to submit an application. The extension of the application deadline date in this notice applies to eligible applicants under the Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Programs grant competition that are located in a designated area covered by a Presidential Federal Disaster Declaration, and which had an incident period that included April 27-28, 2014, as determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) (see www.fema.gov/​news/​disasters.fema). Information on the designated areas in each of four affected States can be found at the following links: Alabama (http://www.fema.gov/​disaster/​4176); Arkansas (http://www.fema.gov/​disaster/​4174); Florida (http://www.fema.gov/​disaster/​4177); and, Mississippi (http://www.fema.gov/​disaster/​4175). We will not accept applications from applicants who were not located in this federally declared disaster area during April 27-28, 2014.

Applicants under this competition are required to use Grants.gov to submit their application. The Department extends the deadline date for this competition to June 16, 2014 so that prospective applicants affected by severe weather will have additional time to submit an application. As a result of the change in the deadline date, we are also extending the deadline date for intergovernmental review only for these prospective applicants to August 15, 2014.

All information in the March 12, 2014, notice for this competition remains the same, except for the change in the deadline for submitting applications and the deadline for intergovernmental review.
