DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Office of Elementary and Secondary Education; Notice Extending 
the Deadline Date for Transmittal of Part II Applications and the 
Deadline Date for Intergovernmental Review for the Indian Education 
Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) Program for Fiscal 
Year (FY) 2008

    Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.060A.

SUMMARY: On December 19, 2007, we published in the Federal Register (72 
FR 71880) a notice inviting applications for Part I and Part II of the 
Formula Grant Electronic Application System for Indian Education 
(EASIE). The December 19, 2007 notice established an April 4, 2008 
deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under Part 
II of the Formula Grants to LEAs program, and provided that 
applications or data submissions under Part II would be accepted only 
from those eligible applicants who met the Part I deadline of January 
31, 2008. We are extending the Part II application deadline date to 
April 23, 2008, for those eligible applicants who met the Part I 
deadline of January 31, 2008. The change in the deadline date for Part 
II applications is due to the unavailability of the application system 
for Part II during the dates published in the Federal Register. As a 
result of this extension of the deadline date for Part II applications, 
we also are extending the intergovernmental review period required 
under Executive Order 12372 to July 23, 2008. Applicants must refer to 
the Application Notice for all other requirements concerning this 
program.

DATES: Part II of Formula Grant EASIE Applications Available: March 21, 
2008.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Part II Applications: April 23, 2008.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: July 23, 2008.
