School Improvement Programs--Women's Educational Equity Act

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Correction notice.


SUMMARY: On October 9, 1997, the Department published a notice inviting 
applications for new awards for fiscal year 1998 for the Women's 
Educational Equity Act (WEEA) program (62 FR 52916). The deadline for 
receipt of applications under that notice was November 24, 1997. That 
notice indicated that an estimated $1,500,000 would be available for 
new awards. Because the Department received an appropriation for the 
program that was less than anticipated, it considered canceling the 
competition and notified applicants and potential applicants. However, 
upon further consideration, the Department has decided to run a 
competition for the limited funds that are available.
    To allow potential applicants time to respond, the Department is 
establishing a new deadline for transmittal of applications and is 
changing the estimated number of awards for the WEEA implementation and 
research and development grants. Applications that have already been 
submitted will be considered under this competition. However, if an 
applicant wishes to amend its application, amendments must be submitted 
by the new deadline established by this notice.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: January 21, 1998.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: March 31, 1998.
    Estimated Available Funds: $500,000.
    Estimated Number of Awards: Implementation Grants: 2; Research and 
Development Grants: 1-2.

    Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this
