Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services; Office 
of Special Education Programs; Reopening Notice To Invite Applications 
for New Awards To Serve The Deaf-Blind Population in the State of 
Maryland for Fiscal Year (FY) 1999

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: On March 3, 1999, a notice was published in the Federal 
Register (64 FR 10352) inviting applications for new FY 1999 awards to 
support projects that help build the capacity of State and local 
agencies to facilitate the achievement of improved outcomes by children 
who are deaf-blind, and their families. The FY 1999 awards will support 
projects that provide specialized technical assistance regarding the 
provision of early intervention, special education, related, and 
transitional services to children and young adults who are deaf-blind. 
Based on the applications received, we expect to fund projects that, as 
a whole, will provide technical assistance services in each State in 
the country. However, we did not receive, prior to the application 
deadline, any applications from applicants proposing to address the 
needs of children with deaf-blindness in Maryland. Accordingly, the 
purpose of this notice is to invite applications for projects that will 
serve the State of Maryland.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: June 11, 1999.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: August 9, 1999.
    Applications Available: May 26, 1999.
    Note to Applicants: The notice published on March 3, 1999, provides 
other information that applies to this competition. Specifically, the 
priority in that notice, entitled Projects for Children and Young 
Adults Who Are Deaf-Blind (84.326C), identifies the requirements for 
applications submitted in response to this notice.
    In addition, the Eligible Applicants section in the March 3, 1999 
notice is amended for purposes of this competition by limiting eligible 
applicants to entities that meet the eligibility criteria in the 
priority and propose to address the needs of children with deaf-
blindness in the State of Maryland. Potential applicants should consult 
the statement of the final priority published in the Federal Register 
on March 3, 1999 (64 FR 10352) to ascertain the substantive 
requirements for their applications.
