In the Federal Register of December 22, 2015 (80 FR 79574), on page 79576, in the third column, section II. Award Information, under “Estimated Available Funds,” we correct the estimated amount to $150,000,000. In addition, we correct the “Maximum Award,” which is located a couple paragraphs below the “Estimated Available Funds,” to read:

Maximum Award:

  • For an applicant that is not currently receiving a Talent Search Program grant, the maximum award amount is $240,000 for a project that will serve a minimum of 500 participants, based upon a per-participant cost of no more than $480.
  • For an applicant that is currently receiving a Talent Search Program grant, the maximum award amount is the greater of (a) $240,000 or (b) the award amount obtained by multiplying the applicant's approved FY 2015 number of participants by $480, to serve at least the number of participants approved to serve in FY 2015. The minimum number of participants an applicant proposes to serve must be 500 and the project must propose a per-participant cost that does not exceed $480 per participant. For example, an applicant whose FY 2015 approved number of participants is 600 is eligible for a grant of up to $288,000 to serve 600 participants.

We will reject any application that proposes a budget exceeding the maximum amount listed above for a single budget period of 12 months. We will also reject any application that proposes a budget to serve fewer than 500 participants, and will reject any application that proposes a budget that exceeds the maximum per participant cost of $480.

All other information in the December 22, 2015, notice remains unchanged.
