Start Supplemental Information
On June 26, 2018 we published in the Federal Register an NIA for this program (83 FR 29769) that listed a number of selection criteria, including assigned point values, and requirements for this competition. Additionally, we posted an application package for the program on Start Printed Page 39736the Department's website at www2.ed.gov/programs/indiandemo/applicant.html and Grants.gov. Since that time, we have discovered that some parts of the selection criteria in the application package did not match the selection criteria in the NIA, and that some of the application package instructions relating to “Part 6, Other Attachments” did not match requirements and criteria in the NIA. Although we noted in the application package that the NIA was the official document governing this competition, we are publishing this supplemental notice to clarify that the selection criteria and requirements in the NIA are the official selection criteria and requirements for this competition. Please refer to the NIA for the selection criteria, including assigned point values, and requirements that apply to this competition. In addition to having been published in the Federal Register, the NIA is attached at the end of the application package under “Legal and Regulatory Information.” We also have updated the application package on the Department's website and grants.gov to correct the items described above. Please refer to those two websites for an updated application package.
Applicants that have already submitted timely applications may resubmit their applications but are not required to do so.
Applicants must submit their applications in Grants.gov by 4:30:00 p.m., Washington, DC time on August 10, 2018. Instructions for submitting an application can be found in the NIA.
All information in the NIA remains the same.
