Training--Client Assistance Program's FY 2005 competition. The Dear 
Colleague letter in the application package contained incorrect

competition is July 27, 2005.

(applications must be received by the Electronic Grant Application 
System (e-Application) no later than 4:30 p.m., Washington, DC time).

available in the application package. Applications for grants under 
the Rehabilitation Short-Term Training--Client Assistance Program 
must be submitted electronically using the Electronic Grant 
Application System (e-Application) available through the 
Department's e-Grants system. You may not e-mail an electronic copy 
of a grant application to us. For information about how to submit
