Full Text of Announcement

I. Funding Opportunity Description
Purpose of Program: The purpose of
this program is to support model
demonstration programs that promote
the successful transition of students
with intellectual disabilities into higher
education and to enable institutions of
higher education (IHEs) (or consortia of
institutions of higher education), to
create or expand high quality inclusive
model comprehensive transition and
postsecondary programs for students
with intellectual disabilities.
Priorities: This notice contains one
absolute priority, three competitive
preference priorities, and one
invitational priority for the FY 2010
grant competition and any subsequent
year in which we make awards from the
list of unfunded applicants from this
competition. We are establishing the
absolute priority in accordance with
section 437(d)(1) of the General
Education Provisions Act (GEPA), 20
U.S.C. 1232(d)(1).
Absolute Priority: This priority is an
absolute priority. Under 34 CFR
75.105(c)(3) we consider only
applications that meet this priority.
This priority is:
A grant recipient must use grant funds
to establish a model comprehensive
transition and postsecondary program
for students with intellectual disabilities
that—
(1) Serves students with intellectual
disabilities;
(2) Provides individual supports and
services for the academic and social
inclusion of students with intellectual
disabilities in academic courses,
extracurricular activities, and other
aspects of the IHE’s regular
postsecondary program;
(3) Provides a focus on academic
enrichment, socialization, independent
living skills, including self-advocacy,
and integrated work experiences and
career skills that lead to gainful
employment;
(4) Integrates person-centered
planning in the development of the
course of study for each student with an
intellectual disability participating in
the model program;
(5) Participates with the coordinating
center established under section 777(b)
of the HEA, in the evaluation of the
components of the model program and
budgets $4,000 annually for evaluation
expenses incurred by the coordinating
center including data collection, storage,
analyses, and reporting;
(6) Engages in scheduled meetings or
conference calls sponsored by the
coordinating center, contributes $500
annually to the coordinating center in
consultation with the Federal project
officer to support conference expenses,
and allocates five-percent of the time of
one project personnel to support
meeting and conference planning each
project year;
(7) Partners with one or more local
educational agencies to support
students with intellectual disabilities
participating in the model program who
are still eligible for special education
and related services under the
Individuals with Disabilities Education
Act (IDEA);
(8) Implements a financial and
program plan for the sustainability of
the model after the end of the grant
period; and
(9) Creates and offers a meaningful
credential for students with intellectual
disabilities upon the completion of the
model program.
Competitive Preference Priorities: In
accordance with 34 CFR
75.105(b)(2)(iv), these priorities are from
section 767(c)(3) of the HEA. For FY
2010, these priorities are competitive
preference priorities. Under 34 CFR
75.105(c)(2)(i), we award an additional
nine points to an applicant (three points
for each of the three priorities), that
meets these priorities. An applicant can
choose to respond to one, two, or all
three of these priorities and can receive
points based on their response to each
separate priority.
These priorities are:
Competitive Priority 1:
Applicants that propose to form a
sustained and meaningful partnership
with any relevant agency serving
students with intellectual disabilities,
such as a vocational rehabilitation
agency.
Competitive Priority 2:
Applicants that demonstrate that their
IHE provides institutionally owned or
operated housing for students attending
the institution that integrates students
with intellectual disabilities into the
housing offered to all students.
Competitive Priority 3:
Applicants that propose to involve
undergraduate or graduate students
attending the IHE who are studying
special education, general education,
vocational rehabilitation, assistive
technology, or related fields in the
model program.
Invitational Priority: For FY 2010 this
priority is an invitational priority.
Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(1) we do not
give an application that meets this
invitational priority a competitive or
absolute preference over other
applications.
This priority is:
Applicants that demonstrate that the
institution will use TPSID funds to
extend or enhance an existing program,
rather than to supplant other non-
Federal resources that are allocated to
the program. Applicants responding to
this priority should describe any
existing programs at their institutions,
including the number and
characteristics of the students served,
the staffing and budget for the program,
how well students with intellectual
disabilities are integrated with students
without disabilities in regard to
academic courses, extracurricular
activities and other aspects of the IHE’s
regular postsecondary program, and
describe how the TPSID grant will build
upon current efforts.
Applicable Statutory Definitions:
Comprehensive transition and
postsecondary program for students
with intellectual disabilities (section
760(1) of the HEA).
The term ‘‘comprehensive transition
and postsecondary program for students
with intellectual disabilities’’ means a
degree, certificate, or nondegree
program that meets each of the
following:
(A) Is offered by an institution of
higher education.
(B) Is designed to support students
with intellectual disabilities who are
seeking to continue academic, career
and technical, and independent living
instruction at an institution of higher
education in order to prepare for gainful
employment.
(C) Includes an advising and
curriculum structure.
(D) Requires students with
intellectual disabilities to participate on
not less than a half-time basis as

participation focusing on academic
components, and occurring through one
or more of the following activities:
(i) Regular enrollment in creditbearing
courses with nondisabled
students offered by the institution.
(ii) Auditing or participating in
courses with nondisabled students
offered by the institution for which the
student does not receive regular
academic credit.
(iii) Enrollment in noncredit-bearing,
nondegree courses with nondisabled
students.
(iv) Participation in internships or
work-based training in settings with
nondisabled individuals.
(E) Requires students with intellectual
disabilities to be socially and

students to the maximum
extent possible.
Student with an intellectual disability
(section 760(2) of the HEA). The term
‘‘student with an intellectual disability’’
means a student—

cognitive impairment, characterized by
significant limitations in—
(i) Intellectual and cognitive
functioning; and
(ii) Adaptive behavior as expressed in
conceptual, social, and practical
adaptive skills; and
(B) Who is currently, or was formerly,
eligible for a free appropriate public
education under IDEA.
Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking:
Under the Administrative Procedure Act
(5 U.S.C. 553) the Department generally
offers interested parties the opportunity
to comment on proposed priorities.
Section 437(d)(1) of GEPA, however,
allows the Secretary to exempt from
rulemaking requirements regulations
governing the first grant competition
under a new or substantially revised
program authority. This is the first grant
competition for this program under
section 767 of the HEA, (20 U.S.C.
1140G) and therefore qualifies for this
exemption. To ensure timely grant
awards, the Secretary has decided to
forego public comment on the absolute
priority under section 437(d)(1) of
GEPA. This priority will apply to the FY
2010 grant competition and any
subsequent year in which we make
awards from the list of unfunded
applicants from this competition.
Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1140G.
Applicable Regulations: The
Education Department General
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in
34 CFR parts 74, 75, 77, 79, 82, 84, 85,
86, 97, 98, and 99.
Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 79
apply to all applicants except federally
recognized Indian tribes.
II. Award Information
Type of Award: Discretionary grants.
Estimated Available Funds:
$10,563,300.
Contingent upon the availability of
funds and the quality of applications,
we may make additional awards in FY
2011 from the list of unfunded
applicants from this competition.
Estimated Range of Awards:
$100,000–$500,000.
Estimated Average Size of Awards:
$423,000.
Maximum Award: We will reject any
application that proposes a budget
exceeding $500,000 for a single budget
period of 12 months. The Assistant
Secretary for Postsecondary Education
may change the maximum amount
through a notice published in the
Federal Register.
Estimated Number of Awards: 25.
Note: The Department is not bound by any
estimates in this notice.
Project Period: 60 months.
III. Eligibility Information
1. Eligible Applicants: IHEs as defined
under section 101(a) of the HEA or
consortia of IHEs are eligible to apply
for funding.
2. Cost Sharing or Matching: The
grantee must provide, from non-Federal

http://www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/appforms/appforms.html.
4. Performance Measures: The
Government Performance and Results
Act (GPRA) of 1993 directs Federal
departments and agencies to improve
the effectiveness of their programs by
engaging in strategic planning, setting
outcome-related goals for programs, and
measuring program results against those
goals. The goal of the TPSID program is
to promote the successful transition of
students with intellectual disabilities
into higher education and to enable
institutions of higher education (or
consortia of institutions of higher
education), to create or expand high
quality, inclusive model comprehensive
transition and postsecondary programs
for students with intellectual
disabilities. To assess the success of the
grantees in meeting this goal, grantees
will be required to submit annual
performance reports to the Secretary,
including documentation of: Resource
inputs, including sources of student
financial assistance and contributions
from vocational rehabilitation and other
service agencies; student characteristics;
program staffing; and student academic,
social, and employment outcomes. In
accordance with section 767(d)(5) of the
HEA, grantees will be required to
participate in evaluation activities
conducted by the coordinating center
established by section 777(b) of the
HEA. As part of these reports and
evaluation activities, grantees will be
expected to work closely with the
coordinating center to develop
performance measures most closely
aligned with activities that promote the
successful transition of students with
disabilities into higher education.
Grantees will be asked to provide
information to the coordinating center
such as: (1) A description of the
population of students targeted to
receive assistance under their grant; (2)
evidence of academic and social
inclusion of students with intellectual
disabilities in academic courses,
extracurricular activities, and other
aspects of the IHE’s regular
postsecondary program; (3) a
description of how the model program
addresses individualized student needs
and improvement through personcentered
planning, academic
enrichment, socialization, independent
living skills, and integrated work
experiences and career skills; (4) a
description of how the program leads to
gainful employment and data systems
used to track student outcomes; (5) a
description of how the model program’s
partnership with one or more LEAs
supports students with intellectual
disabilities participating in the model
program who are still eligible for funds
under the IDEA; (6) plans for program
sustainability beyond the grant period;
(7) a detailed description of the
meaningful credential offered to
students with intellectual disabilities;
(8) data regarding the change in
enrollment of students with intellectual
disabilities at the IHE; (9) data regarding
persistence and completion of students
with intellectual disabilities; (10) a
detailed description of measureable
goals for the individual project, planned
methods of achieving those goals, and
progress towards meeting the goals; and
(11) if applicable, a description of how
the grantee continues to address the
competitive preference priorities
described in this notice related to
sustained and meaningful partnerships
with relevant agencies, the participation
of students with intellectual disabilities
in institutionally owned or operated
housing, and the involvement of
students attending the IHE who are
studying special education, general
education, vocational rehabilitation,
assistive technology, or related fields in
the model program.
