The Department strongly prefers to receive an SEA’s FY 2015 and FY 2016 SIG application electronically. The application should be sent as a Microsoft Word document, not as a PDF.
The SEA should submit its FY 2015 and FY 2016 application to its individual state mailbox address at (OSS.[State]@ed.gov).
In addition, the SEA must submit a paper copy of the cover page signed by the SEA’s authorized representative to the address listed below under “Paper Submission.”
If an SEA is not able to submit the SIG application electronically, it may submit the original and two copies of the application to the following address:
Michael Wells, Group Leader
Office of State Support, OESE
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Ave, SW, Room 3W103
Washington, DC 20202-6132
Due to potential delays in government processing of mail sent through the U.S. Postal Service, SEAs are encouraged to use alternate carriers for paper submissions.
Applications are due on or before (May 27, 2016).
