DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Office of Innovation and Improvement; Notice Extending the 
Deadline Date for Transmittal of Applications for the Excellence in 
Economic Education Program Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Competition

    Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.215B.

SUMMARY: On December 21, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 
FR 67862) a notice inviting applications for the Excellence in Economic 
Education program's FY 2010 competition. The original notice 
established a February 16, 2010, deadline date for eligible applicants 
to apply for funding under this program. For this competition, 
applicants are required to submit their applications electronically 
through the Department's Electronic Grant Application System (e-
Application). However, e-Application will not be available to users 
beginning Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. 
Tuesday, February 16, 2010. During this time the Department will 
transition the e-application process from the current system (GAPS) to 
a new system. Because e-Application will be unavailable for several 
days prior to the original deadline date, we are extending the deadline 
date for transmittal of applications for the Excellence in Economic 
Education program FY 2010 competition.

DATES: Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: February 22, 2010. 
(Applications must be received by e-Application no later than 4:30:00 
p.m., Washington, DC time.)

    Note: Applications for grants under this competition must be 
submitted electronically using the Electronic Grant Application 
System (e-Application) accessible through the Department's e-Grants 
site. You may not e-mail an electronic copy of a grant application 
to us. For information about how to submit your application 
electronically, please refer to section IV. 6. Other Submission 
Requirements in the December 21, 2009 notice (74 FR 67863). We have 
not extended the deadline for submitting a statement that an 
applicant qualifies for an exception to the electronic submission 
requirement.

    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: The deadline date for 
Intergovernmental Review under Executive Order 12732 is extended to 
April 21, 2010.
