Bilingual Education: Comprehensive School Grants; Notice 
Reopening Competition for New Awards

SUMMARY: On April 16, 2001, a notice inviting applications for new 
awards for fiscal year (FY) 2001 was published in the Federal Register 
(66 FR 19437--19471). This notice was a complete application package 
and contained all of the information, application forms, and 
instructions needed to apply for a grant under this program. The notice 
listed a deadline date of June 15, 2001, for the transmittal of 
applications and specified that applicants could submit their 
applications in either electronic or paper format.
    Due to a power outage affecting the Department's Electronic Grant 
Application System (e-APPLICATION), applicants that intended to submit 
their applications in electronic format were unable to use the 
Internet-based electronic system for submitting applications on June 
14-15 and consequently may have been unable to meet the application 
deadline date.
    Since the deadline date has passed, this notice is intended to help 
potential applicants compete fairly under the Bilingual Education 
Comprehensive School Grants Program by reopening the competition for 
all applicants and establishing the new deadline dates specified below 
for transmittal of applications and intergovernmental review. You may 
submit your application to us in either electronic or paper format. You 
may access the electronic grant application at the following site: 
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: July 2, 2001.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: August 30, 2001.
