For all competitive discretionary grants, OLCA notifies Congressional offices of successful applicants from their district before the Department notifies the grantees. OLCA may advise if a grant competition is open or closed and, if it is closed, which applicants in your state were successful. Also, we can generate a report of all discretionary grants awarded to entities in your Congressional district during the current or previous fiscal year(s).
Congressional offices identify which staff members should receive the notification email, which is sent from OLCAGrantAnnouncements@ed.gov. The legislative assistant for education will receive the email if no one is designated. The notification email includes the program information and a list of all successful grantees within the State. If your office would like to change or add staff members to receive this email, please contact Will Ragland at 202-401-0020.
