On May 4, 2020, we published the NIA for the FY 2021 Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs competitions in the Federal Register (85 FR 26445). We are reopening this competition in order to allow applicants, including personnel that are critical to the preparation and submission of applications, more time to prepare and submit applications that were delayed by the severe storm disaster declaration in Iowa or the wildfire disaster declarations in California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.
Eligibility: The extension of the application deadline date in this notice applies to eligible applicants under the FY 2021 Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs competitions, CFDA numbers 84.305A, 84.305B, 84.305C, 84.305R, 84.324A, 84.324B, 84.324P, and 84.324R, that are affected by Fire Management Assistance Declarations in California (FEMA Disaster designations 5331, 5332, 5329), Nevada (FEMA Disaster designation 5328), Oregon (FEMA Disaster designation 5327), and Washington (FEMA Disaster designation 5330) and a Major Disaster Declaration in Iowa (FEMA Disaster designation 4557). See www.fema.gov/disasters/.
Each application submitted under this Notice must include an assurance that the applicant meets the eligibility requirements for the jurisdictions covered by the FEMA designations noted above. The assurance may either be based on (1) the location of the applicant institution or (2) the location(s) of the essential staff, in which case the explanation should include the name(s) and remote work location(s) for the personnel or consultants key to the preparation of the application.
Applicants that are eligible for an extension under this notice (because they are located in, or have personnel or consultants that are critical to the timely development and submission of applications who are located in, one of the areas described in the preceding paragraph) and have already timely submitted applications under the FY 2021 Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs competitions may resubmit applications but are not required to do so. If a new application is not submitted, the Department will use the application that was submitted by the original deadline. If a new application is submitted, the Department will consider the application that is last submitted and timely received. Applications that did not meet the original deadline must use the application package for the reopened competition, available at grants.gov, to be considered for review.
All information in the NIA for this competition remains the same, except for the deadline for the transmittal of applications.
