    Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the 
Office of Innovation and Improvement (OII) has developed an application 
package for the new Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) Program. Under 
this program, the Department will use the application to award three 
types of grants: Scale-Up grants, Validation grants and Development 
grants. The purpose of this program is to provide competitive grants to 
applicants with a record of improving student achievement and 
attainment in order to expand the implementation of, and investment in, 
innovative practices that are demonstrated to have an impact on 
improving student achievement or student growth, closing achievement 
gaps, decreasing dropout rates, increasing high school graduation 
rates, and increasing college enrollment and completion rates. These 
grants will allow eligible entities to expand and develop innovative 
practices that can serve as models of best practices, allow eligible 
entities to work in partnership with the private sector and the 
philanthropic community, and identify and document best practices that 
can be shared and taken to scale based on demonstrated success.
    This information collection is being submitted under the 
Streamlined Clearance Process for Discretionary Grant Information 
Collections (1894-0001). Therefore, the 30-day public comment period
