Indian Education Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Reopening of closing date for transmittal of applications for 
new awards for fiscal year (FY) 1997 under the Indian Education Formula 
Grants to Local Educational Agencies Program (formula grant program) 
authorized under Subpart 1 of Part A of Title IX of the Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act (ESEA).


SUMMARY: On December 19, 1996, a notice inviting applications for new 
awards for FY 1997 for the Indian Education formula grant program was 
published in the Federal Register (61 FR 67178). That notice provided 
detailed information concerning this program and established March 10, 
1997 as the deadline date for receipt of applications. This notice 
reopens the deadlines for transmittal of applications and for 
intergovernmental review as originally established in the December 19, 
1996 notice. Applicants that have already submitted an application need 
not submit another application. However, those applicants have until 
the new closing date to submit any revisions to their application.

Deadline for Transmittal of Applications

    The new closing date is June 16, 1997.
    Applications not meeting the deadline will not be considered for 
funding in the initial allocation of awards. Applications not meeting 
the deadline may be considered for funding if the Secretary determines, 
under Section 9117(d), Subpart l, Part A of Title IX, ESEA, that funds 
are available and that reallocation of those funds to those applicants 
would best assist in advancing the purposes of the program. However, 
the amount and date of an individual award, if any, made under Section 
9117(d) may not be the same to which the applicant would have been 
entitled if the application had been submitted on time.

Deadline for Intergovernmental Review

    The new date is August 15, 1997.
