On December 15, 2015, the Secretary invited applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2015 under the SPDG competition (79 FR 74071). The purpose of this program, authorized by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), is to assist State educational agencies (SEAs) in reforming and improving their systems for personnel preparation and professional development in early intervention, educational, and transition services in order to improve results for children with disabilities.

The notice inviting applications established a January 29, 2015, deadline for the submission of applications. To ensure that all interested parties are provided a minimum of 60 days to submit their applications, we are extending the application period for fifteen (15) days to February 13, 2015. Consequently, we are also extending the deadline for intergovernmental review to April 14, 2015. All other information in the December 15, 2014, notice, including the two absolute priorities, remains the same.
