Notice Reopening the Deadline Dates for the Transmittal of 
Applications for Certain Direct Grants

SUMMARY: The Secretary reopens the deadline dates for the transmittal 
of applications for several competitions. All of the affected 
competitions are among those under which the Secretary is making new 
awards for fiscal year (FY) 2004. The Secretary takes this action to 
allow more time for the preparation and transmittal of applications by 
potential applicants from counties designated as Federal disaster areas 
due to the California wildfires. The reopening of these deadline dates 
is intended to help the potential applicants compete fairly with other 
applicants under these programs.

you if you are a potential applicant from a county on the following 
list. The President has declared a major disaster for the following

for, or information about, an individual program are in the original 
application notice for that program. We have listed the publication 
date and Federal Register citation of the original application notice
