I. Funding Opportunity Description

    Purpose of Program: The Impact Aid Discretionary Construction Grant 
program provides grants for emergency repairs and modernization of 
school facilities to certain eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) 
that receive formula Impact Aid funds.
    Priority: In this notice, the Secretary is soliciting applications 
only for Priority 1 emergency repair grants. We will not accept 
applications for Priority 2 emergency repair or modernization grants at 
this time. In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(ii) and (iv), this 
priority is from section 8007(b)(2)(A) of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act of 1965, as amended (Act) (20 U.S.C. 7707(b)), and the 
regulations for this program in 34 CFR 222.177.
    Absolute Priority: For this competition using FY 2009 funds, this 
is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only 
applications that meet this priority.
    This priority is: Priority 1 emergency repair grants. An LEA is 
eligible to apply for an emergency grant under the first priority of 
section 8007(b) of the Act if it--
    (a) Is eligible to receive formula construction funds for fiscal 
year 2009 under section 8007(a) of the Act (20 U.S.C. 7707(a));
    (b)(1) Has no practical capacity to issue bonds;
    (2) Has minimal capacity to issue bonds and has used at least 75 
percent of its bond limit; or
    (3) Is eligible to receive funds for fiscal year 2009 for heavily 
impacted districts under section 8003(b)(2) of the Act (20 U.S.C. 
7707(b)(2)); and
    (c) Has a school facility emergency that the Secretary has 
determined poses a health or safety hazard to students and school 
personnel.

    Note: For each of the competitions held under this program with 
FYs 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2008 funds, the amounts requested by 
applicants for Priority 1 grants exceeded the funds available. (The 
Impact Aid Discretionary grant program was not funded in FYs 2006 
and 2007.)


    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 7707(b).

    Applicable Regulations: (a) The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 75 (except for 34 
CFR 75.600 through 75.617), 77, 79, 80, 82, 84, 85, 97, 98, and 99. (b) 
The regulations for this program in 34 CFR part 222.

    Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 79 apply to all applicants 
except federally recognized Indian tribes.

II. Award Information

    Type of Award: Discretionary grant.
    Estimated Available Funds: $17,509,000.
    Estimated Range of Awards: $50,000-$5,000,000.
    Estimated Average Size of Awards: $1,600,000.
    Estimated Number of Awards: 11.

    Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this 
notice.

    Project Period: Up to 60 months. We will determine each project 
period based on the nature of the project proposed and the time needed 
to complete the project. We will specify this period in the grant award 
document.

III. Eligibility Information

    1. Eligible Applicants: To be eligible for an emergency repair 
grant, an LEA must enroll a high percentage (at least 40 percent) of 
federally connected children in average daily attendance (ADA) who 
reside on Indian lands or who have a parent on active duty in the U.S. 
uniformed services, have a school that enrolls a high percentage of one 
of these types of students, be eligible for funding for heavily 
impacted LEAs under section 8003(b)(2) of the Act, or meet the specific 
numeric requirements regarding bonding capacity. In making emergency 
grant awards, the Secretary must also consider the LEA's total assessed 
value of real property that may be taxed for school purposes, its use 
of available bonding capacity, and the nature and severity of the 
school facility emergency.
    2.a. Cost Sharing or Matching: See 20 U.S.C. 7707(b)(5) and 34 CFR 
222.174 and 222.191 through 222.193. In reviewing proposed awards, the 
Secretary considers the funds available to the grantee from other 
sources, including local, State, and other Federal funds. Consistent 
with 34 CFR 222.192, applicants will be required to submit financial 
reports for FYs 2007, 2008, and 2009, or the most recently available 
financial reports showing closing balances for all school funds. If 
significant amounts were available at the close of FY 2009 that are not 
obligated for other purposes, those funds will be considered as 
available for the proposed emergency repair project, which may reduce 
or eliminate the award for an emergency grant.
    b. Supplement-Not-Supplant: As outlined in 34 CFR 222.174, grants 
made under this program are subject to supplement, not supplant funding 
provisions. Grant funds under this program may not be used to supplant 
or replace other available non-Federal construction money.

V. Application Review Information

    1. Selection Criteria: The selection criteria for this program are 
from 20 U.S.C. 7707(b)(4) and (b)(6), and are further clarified in 34 
CFR 222.183 and 222.187 and described in the following paragraphs. The 
Secretary gives distinct weight to the listed selection criteria. The 
maximum score for each criterion is indicated in parentheses. Within 
each criterion, the Secretary evaluates each factor equally, unless 
otherwise specified. The maximum score that an application may receive 
is 100 points.
    (1) Need for project/severity of the school facility problem to be 
addressed by the proposed project. (up to 30 points)
    (a) Justification that the proposed project will address a valid 
emergency, and consistency of the emergency description and the 
proposed project with the certifying local official's statement.
    (b) Impact of the emergency condition on the health and safety of 
the building occupants or on program delivery. Applicants should 
describe the systems or areas of the facility involved, e.g., HVAC, 
roof, floor, windows; the type of space affected, such as 
instructional, resource, food service, recreational, general support, 
or other areas; the percentage of building occupants affected by the 
emergency; and the importance of the facility or affected area to the 
instructional program.
    (2) Project urgency. (up to 28 points)
    (a) Risk to occupants if the facility condition is not addressed. 
Applicants should describe projected increased future costs; the 
anticipated effect of the proposed project on the useful life of the 
facility or the need for major construction; and the age and condition 
of the facility and date of last renovation of affected areas.
    (b) The justification for rebuilding, if proposed.
    (3) Effects of Federal presence. (up to 30 points total)
    (a) Amount of non-taxable Federal property in the applicant LEA 
(percentage of Federal property divided by 10); (up to 10 points)
    (b) The number of federally connected children identified in 
section 8003(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) of the Act in the LEA 
(percentage of identified children in LEA divided by 10); (up to 10 
points)
    (c) The number of federally connected children identified in 
section 8003(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) of the Act in the school 
facility (percentage of identified children in school facility divided 
by 10); (up to 10 points)
    (4) Ability to respond or pay. (up to 12 points total)
    (a) The percentage an LEA has used of its bonding capacity. Four 
points will be distributed based on this percentage so that an LEA that 
has used 100 percent of its bonding capacity receives all four points 
and an LEA that has used less than 25 percent of its bond limit 
receives only one point. LEAs that do not have limits on bonded 
indebtedness established by their States will be evaluated by assuming 
that their bond limit is 10 percent of the assessed value of real 
property in the LEA. LEAs deemed to have no practical capacity to issue 
bonds will receive all four points. (up to four points)
    (b) Assessed value of real property per student (Applicant LEA's 
total assessed valuation of real property per pupil as a percentile 
ranking of all LEAs in the State). Points will be distributed by 
providing all four points to LEAs in the State's poorest quartile and 
only one point to LEAs in the State's wealthiest quartile. (up to four 
points)
    (c) Total tax rate for capital or school purposes (applicant LEA's 
tax rate for capital or school purposes as a percentile ranking of all 
LEAs in the State). If the State authorizes a tax rate for capital 
expenditures, then these data must be used; otherwise, data on the 
total tax rate for school purposes are used. Points will be distributed 
by providing all four points to LEAs in the State's highest-taxing 
quartile and only one point to LEAs in the State's lowest-taxing 
quartile. (up to four points)
    2. Review and Selection Process: Upon receipt, Impact Aid program 
staff will screen all applications to eliminate any applications that 
do not meet the eligibility standards, are incomplete, or are late. 
Applications that do not contain a signed cover page and a signed 
independent certification received by the Impact Aid Program by 4:30:00 
p.m., Washington, DC time, on the application deadline date are 
considered incomplete and will not be considered for funding. Program 
staff will also calculate the scores for each application under 
criteria (3) and (4). Panel reviewers will assess the applications 
under criteria (1) and (2).
    (a) Applications are ranked based on the total number of points 
received during the review process. Those with the highest scores will 
be at the top of the funding slate.
    (b) While applicants may submit multiple applications, the 
Department may limit awards for a single applicant based on factors 
specified in 34 CFR 75.217, including the applicant's performance and 
use of funds under a prior award.
    (c) For applicants that request funding for new construction and 
that are selected for funding, the Impact Aid Program will request a 
feasibility of construction study prior to making an award 
determination. The independent third party study should demonstrate 
that the area upon which the construction will occur is suitable for 
construction and will be able to sustain the new facility or addition. 
This study should include information to show that the soil is stable, 
the site is suitable for construction and the existing infrastructure 
can serve and sustain the new facility.

VI. Award Administration Information

    1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we notify your 
U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award 
Notification (GAN). We may notify you informally, also.
    If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, 
we notify you.
    2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify 
administrative and national policy requirements in the application 
package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable 
Regulations section of this notice.
    We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of 
an award in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice and 
include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also 
incorporates your approved

[[Page 31775]]

application as part of your binding commitments under the grant.
    3. Reporting: At the end of your project period, you must submit a 
final performance report, including financial information, as directed 
by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an 
annual performance report that provides the most current performance 
and financial expenditure information as directed by the Secretary 
under 34 CFR 75.118. In general, grantees must comply with applicable 
reporting requirements in 34 CFR parts 75 and 80. In addition, grantees 
will be required to provide periodic performance and financial reports,
