DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Office of Postsecondary Education; Overview Information; Talent 
Search (TS) Program; Notice Inviting Applications For New Awards for 
Fiscal Year (FY) 2011

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.044A.

    Dates: Applications Available: November 3, 2010.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: December 28, 2010.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: February 28, 2011.

Full Text of Announcement

I. Funding Opportunity Description

    Purpose of Program: The purpose of the TS Program is to identify 
qualified individuals with potential for education at the postsecondary 
level and encourage them to complete secondary school and undertake a 
program of postsecondary education. TS projects publicize the 
availability of, and facilitate the application for, student financial 
assistance for persons who seek to pursue postsecondary education and 
encourage persons who have not completed programs at the secondary or 
postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete these programs.
    Priorities: Under this competition we are particularly interested 
in applications that address the following priorities.
    Invitational Priorities: For FY 2011 these priorities are 
invitational priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(1) we do not give an 
application that meets these invitational priorities a competitive or 
absolute preference over other applications.
    These priorities are:
    Invitational Priority 1: The Secretary encourages applicants to 
propose projects that provide services to students enrolled in schools 
that are not currently being served by a Talent Search project, 
especially schools that the State has identified as the persistently 
lowest-achieving schools.
    Invitational Priority 2: The Secretary encourages applicants to 
work with appropriate State agencies to use data from State 
longitudinal data systems or to obtain data from reliable third-party 
sources when providing information on the implementation of their 
Talent Search projects and their participants' outcomes.
    Invitational Priority 3: The Secretary encourages applicants to 
coordinate project services with school-level partners and other 
community resources in order to carry out projects that are cost-
effective and best meet students' needs.

    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1070a-11-1070a-12.

    Applicable Regulations: (a) The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75 (except for 
Sec. Sec.  75.215 through 75.221), 77, 79, 80, 82, 84, 85, 86, 97, 98 
and 99.
    (b) The regulations for this program in 34 CFR part 643.

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


    Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 86 apply to institutions of 
higher education only.

II. Award Information

    Type of Award: Discretionary grants.
    Estimated Available Funds: The Administration has requested $853.1 
million for the Federal TRIO Programs for FY 2011, of which we intend 
to use an estimated $142.1 million for the TS Program. The actual level 
of funding, if any, depends on final congressional action. However, we 
are inviting applications to allow enough time to complete the grant 
process if Congress appropriates funds for this program.
    Estimated Range of Awards: $230,000-$702,000.
    Estimated Average Size of Awards: $306,168.
    Maximum Award:
     An applicant not currently receiving a TS Program grant: 
For an applicant who is not currently receiving a TS Program grant, the 
maximum award amount is $230,000 and the project must serve a minimum 
of 500 participants, based upon a per participant cost of no more than 
(or not to exceed) $460.
     An applicant currently receiving a TS Program grant: For 
an applicant who is currently receiving a TS Program grant, the maximum 
award amount is the greater of (a) $230,000 or (b) an amount equal to 
103 percent of the applicant's grant award amount for FY 2009 or FY 
2010, whichever is greater. The applicant must propose to serve a 
minimum of 500 participants and, regardless of the size of the award, 
the per participant cost may not exceed $460. If an applicant who is 
currently receiving a TS Program grant is serving

[[Page 67706]]

more than 500 participants, the applicant is encouraged to continue to 
serve the same number of participants. However, if the applicant 
proposes to reduce the number of participants to be served, the 
applicant must propose to serve at least 500 participants and the per 
participant cost may not exceed $460 per participant. For example, if 
an applicant is eligible for a $460,000 grant (103 percent of the 
current funding level) the applicant must propose to serve at least 
1,000 participants.
    The Department may choose to fund successful applicants who are 
currently receiving a TS Program grant at a level equal to the greater 
of the award amount FY 2009 or FY 2010 instead of an amount equal to 
103 percent of the current award amount. However, in that situation, 
the Department will adjust the number of participants that the 
applicant will be required to serve accordingly. For example, an 
applicant with a current grant of $446,602 would be required to serve 
at least 971 participants ($446,602 / $460 = 971).
    We will reject any application that proposes a budget exceeding the 
maximum amount listed in this section for a single budget period of 12 
months. We will also reject any application that proposes a budget to 
serve less than 500 participants, and will reject any application that 
proposes a budget that exceeds the maximum per participant cost of 
$460.
    Estimated Number of Awards: 464.

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

    Project Period: Up to 60 months.

III. Eligibility Information

    1. Eligible Applicants: Institutions of higher education, public 
and private agencies and organizations including community-based 
organizations with experience in serving disadvantaged youth, 
combinations of such institutions, agencies and organizations, and 
secondary schools, for planning, developing, or carrying out one or 
more of the services identified under this program.
    2. Cost Sharing or Matching: This program does not require cost 
sharing or matching.
    3. Other: An applicant may submit more than one application for a 
TS grant so long as each application describes a project that serves a 
different target area or target schools (34 CFR 643.10(a)). The term 
target area is defined as a geographic area served by a TS project, and 
the term target school is a school designated by the applicant as a 
focus of project services (34 CFR 643.7(b)).

    7. Other Submission Requirements: Applications for grants under 
this program must be submitted electronically unless you qualify for an 
exception to this requirement in accordance with the instructions in 
this section.
    a. Electronic Submission of Applications.
    Applications for grants under the Talent Search Program, CFDA 
number 84.044A, must be submitted electronically using the 
Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site at www.Grants.gov. Through this 
site, you will be able to download a copy of the application package, 
complete it offline, and then upload and submit your application. You 
may not e-mail an electronic copy of a grant application to us.
    We will reject your application if you submit it in paper format 
unless, as described elsewhere in this section, you qualify for one of 
the exceptions to the electronic submission requirement and submit, no 
later than two weeks before the application deadline date, a written 
statement to the Department that you qualify for one of these 
exceptions. Further information regarding calculation of the date that 
is two weeks before the application deadline date is provided later in 
this section under Exception to Electronic Submission Requirement.
    You may access the electronic grant application for the Talent 
Search Program at http://www.Grants.gov. You must search for the 
downloadable application package for this program by the CFDA number. 
Do not include the CFDA number's alpha suffix in your search (e.g., 
search for 84.326, not 84.326A).
    Please note the following:
     When you enter the Grants.gov site, you will find 
information about submitting an application electronically through the 
site, as well as the hours of operation.
     Applications received by Grants.gov are date and time 
stamped. Your application must be fully uploaded and submitted and must 
be date and time stamped by the Grants.gov system no later than 4:30:00 
p.m., Washington, DC time, on the application deadline date. Except as 
otherwise noted in this section, we will not accept your application if 
it is received--that is, date and time stamped by the Grants.gov 
system--after 4:30:00 p.m., Washington, DC time, on the application 
deadline date. We do not consider an application that does not comply 
with the deadline requirements. When we retrieve your application from 
Grants.gov, we will notify you if we are rejecting your application 
because it was date and time stamped by the Grants.gov system after 
4:30:00 p.m., Washington, DC time, on the application deadline date.
     The amount of time it can take to upload an application 
will vary depending on a variety of factors, including the size of the 
application and the speed of your Internet connection. Therefore, we 
strongly recommend that you do not wait until the application deadline 
date to begin the submission process through Grants.gov.
     You should review and follow the Education Submission 
Procedures for submitting an application through Grants.gov that are 
included in the application package for this program to ensure that you 
submit your application in a timely manner to the Grants.gov system. 
You can also find the Education Submission Procedures pertaining to 
Grants.gov under News and Events on the Department's G5 system home 
page at http://www.G5.gov.
     You will not receive additional point value because you 
submit your application in electronic format, nor will we penalize you 
if you qualify for an exception to the electronic submission 
requirement, as described elsewhere in this section, and submit your 
application in paper format.
     You must submit all documents electronically, including 
all information you typically provide on the following forms: The 
Application for Federal Assistance (SF 424), the Department of 
Education Supplemental Information for SF 424, Budget Information--Non-
Construction Programs (ED 524), and all necessary assurances and 
certifications.
     You must attach any narrative sections of your application 
as files in a .PDF (Portable Document) format only. If you upload a 
file type other than a .PDF file or submit a password-protected file, 
we will not review that material.
     Your electronic application must comply with any page-
limit requirements described in this notice.
     After you electronically submit your application, you will 
receive from Grants.gov an automatic notification of receipt that 
contains a Grants.gov tracking number. (This notification indicates 
receipt by Grants.gov only, not receipt by the Department.) The 
Department then will retrieve your application from Grants.gov and send 
a second notification to you by e-mail. This second notification 
indicates that the Department has received your application and has 
assigned your application a PR/Award number (an ED-specified 
identifying number unique to your application).
     We may request that you provide us original signatures on 
forms at a later date.
    Application Deadline Date Extension in Case of Technical Issues 
with the Grants.gov System: If you are experiencing problems submitting 
your application through Grants.gov, please contact the Grants.gov 
Support Desk, toll free, at 1-800-518-4726. You must obtain a 
Grants.gov Support Desk Case Number and must keep a record of it.
    If you are prevented from electronically submitting your 
application on the application deadline date because of technical 
problems with the Grants.gov system, we will grant you an extension 
until 4:30:00 p.m., Washington, DC time, the following business day to 
enable you to transmit your application electronically or by hand 
delivery. You also may mail your application by following the mailing 
instructions described elsewhere in this notice.
    If you submit an application after 4:30:00 p.m., Washington, DC 
time, on the application deadline date, please contact the person 
listed under  FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT in section VII of this 
notice and provide an explanation of the technical problem you 
experienced with Grants.gov, along with the Grants.gov Support Desk 
Case

[[Page 67708]]

Number. We will accept your application if we can confirm that a 
technical problem occurred with the Grants.gov system and that that 
problem affected your ability to submit your application by 4:30:00 
p.m., Washington, DC time, on the application deadline date. The 
Department will contact you after a determination is made on whether 
your application will be accepted.

    Note:  The extensions to which we refer in this section apply 
only to the unavailability of, or technical problems with, the 
Grants.gov system. We will not grant you an extension if you failed 
to fully register to submit your application to Grants.gov before 
the application deadline date and time or if the technical problem 
you experienced is unrelated to the Grants.gov system.

    Exception to Electronic Submission Requirement: You qualify for an 
exception to the electronic submission requirement, and may submit your 
application in paper format, if you are unable to submit an application 
through the Grants.gov system because--
     You do not have access to the Internet; or
     You do not have the capacity to upload large documents to 
the Grants.gov system;
    and
     No later than two weeks before the application deadline 
date (14 calendar days or, if the fourteenth calendar day before the 
application deadline date falls on a Federal holiday, the next business 
day following the Federal holiday), you mail or fax a written statement 
to the Department, explaining which of the two grounds for an exception 
prevent you from using the Internet to submit your application.
    If you mail your written statement to the Department, it must be 
postmarked no later than two weeks before the application deadline 
date. If you fax your written statement to the Department, we must 
receive the faxed statement no later than two weeks before the 
application deadline date.
    Address and mail or fax your statement to: Geraldine Smith, U.S. 
Department of Education, 1990 K Street, NW., room 7000, Washington, DC 
20006-8510. FAX: (202) 502-7857.

commercial carrier) your application to the Department. You must mail 
the original and three copies of your application, on or before the 
application deadline date, to the Department at the following address:

    (2) A mail receipt that is not dated by the U.S. Postal Service.
    If your application is postmarked after the application deadline

    Note: The U.S. Postal Service does not uniformly provide a dated 
postmark. Before relying on this method, you should check with your 
local post office.

    c. Submission of Paper Applications by Hand Delivery.
    If you qualify for an exception to the electronic submission 
requirement, you (or a courier service) may deliver your paper 
application to the Department by hand. You must deliver the original

V. Application Review Information

    1. Selection Criteria: The selection criteria for this program 
competition are in 34 CFR 643.21 and listed in the application package.

    Note: With the changes made to the Higher Education Act of 1965, 
as amended, by the Higher Education Opportunity Act, the TS Program 
objectives have been standardized. Please note that applicants are 
required to use these objectives to measure performance under the 
program. Specifically, under the ``Objectives'' selection criterion, 
34 CFR 643.21(b), worth eight points, applicants should address the 
standardized objectives related to the participants' academic 
achievements, including secondary school persistence, secondary 
school graduation with a regular secondary school diploma, secondary 
school graduation from a rigorous secondary school program of study, 
postsecondary education enrollment, and postsecondary degree 
attainment.

    2. Review and Selection Process: A panel of non-federal readers 
will review each application on the basis of the selection criteria in 
34 CFR 643.21. The individual scores of the readers will be added and 
the sum divided by the number of readers to determine the reader score 
received in the review process. In accordance with 34 CFR 643.22, the 
Secretary will award prior experience points to applicants that have 
conducted a TS Program project during budget periods 2007-08, 2008-09, 
and 2009-10, based on their documented experience. Prior experience 
points, if any, will be added to the application's averaged reader 
score to determine the total score for each application. If there are 
insufficient funds for all applications with the same total scores, per 
34 CFR 643.20(c), the Secretary will choose among the tied applications 
so as to serve geographical areas that have been underserved by the TS 
Program.
    We remind potential applicants that in reviewing applications in 
any discretionary grant competition, the Secretary may consider, under 
34 CFR 75.217(d)(3), the past performance of the applicant in carrying 
out a previous award, such as the applicant's use of funds, and 
compliance with grant conditions. The Secretary may also consider 
whether the applicant failed to submit a timely performance report or 
submitted a report of unacceptable quality.
    In addition, in making a competitive grant award, the Secretary 
also requires various assurances including those applicable to Federal 
civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs

[[Page 67709]]

or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from the 
Department of Education (34 CFR 100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 
110.23).
    3. Special Conditions: Under 34 CFR 74.14 and 80.12, the Secretary 
may impose special conditions on a grant if the applicant or grantee is 
not financially stable; has a history of unsatisfactory performance; 
has a financial or other management system that does not meet the 
standards in 34 CFR parts 74 or 80, as applicable; has not fulfilled 
the conditions of a prior grant; or is otherwise not responsible.

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 will 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 application as part of your binding 
commitments under the grant.
    3. Reporting: (a) If you apply for a grant under this competition, 
you must ensure that you have in place the necessary processes and 
systems to comply with the reporting requirements in 2 CFR part 170 
should you receive funding under the competition. This does not apply 
if you have an exception under 2 CFR 170.110(b).
    (b) 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. The Secretary may also require more frequent performance 
reports under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, 
please go to http://www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/appforms/appforms.html.
    4. Performance Measures: The success of the TS Program will be 
measured by secondary school persistence and graduation rates of TS 
Program participants, as well as postsecondary enrollment and 
completion rates. All TS Program grantees will be required to submit an 
annual performance report documenting secondary school persistence, 
secondary school graduation, and postsecondary enrollment of their 
participants. Because students may take different lengths of time to 
complete their postsecondary education, multiple years of performance 
report data are needed to determine the postsecondary completion rates 
of TS Program participants. The Department will aggregate the data 
provided in the annual performance reports from all grantees to 
determine the performance level of the overall TS Program.
    5. Continuation Awards: In making a continuation award, the 
Secretary may consider, under 34 CFR 75.253, the extent to which a 
grantee has made ``substantial progress toward meeting the objectives
