This document corrects the percentage of the required cost match. All other requirements and conditions stated in the NIA remain the same.


In the Federal Register of July 25, 2016 (81 FR 48409), on page 48409, in the third column, we revise the section “2. Cost Sharing or Matching” to read as follows: “2. Cost Sharing or Matching: The Commissioner may award grants to public or private nonprofit agencies or organizations to pay part of the costs for interpreter training programs (section 302(f)(1)(A) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973). Therefore, in order to be considered for funding, applicants must identify in the application budget and budget narrative a percentage of match towards the total cost of the project. It is up to the applicant to determine an appropriate percentage for the match contribution. To calculate match, applicants may use the match-calculator available at:​match-calculator.cfm.”
