We did not receive timely applications that met all of the applicable requirements in the NIA from eligible applicants to serve all States listed in the notice prior to the closing date. Therefore, we are reopening the competition to allow applicants to submit or resubmit applications that meet the requirements in the NIA, in order to ensure that parents in all States can be served by a Parent Training and Information Center.

Applications that did not meet the submission deadline must be submitted to be considered for review.
