Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services; Research 
in Education of Individuals With Disabilities Program

ACTION: Extension Notice.


PURPOSE: On August 10, 1995, the Secretary published in the Federal 
Register (60 FR 40956) a combined application notice (CAN) inviting 
applications for new awards for fiscal year 1996 under a number of the 
Department's direct grant and fellowship programs. Included in the CAN 
were three competitions under the Research in Education of Individuals
with Disabilities Program. The purpose of this notice is to revise the
closing date for one of those competitions. The closing date for the 
Field-Initiated Research Projects competition, CFDA No. 84.023C, has
been extended to March 29, 1996. This action is taken in consideration 
of the current proposals in the Congress that either eliminate or 
substantially reduce funding for the program. Extending the closing 
date for this competition allows the Department and potential 
applicants time to consider further developments related to the fiscal 
year 1996 appropriation.
