Research in Education of Individuals With Disabilities Program;
Extension Notice

[[Page 8832]]


[CFDA No.: 84.023C]

Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services; Research 
in Education of Individuals With Disabilities Program

ACTION: Extension Notice.


PURPOSE: On August 10, 1995, the Secretary published in the Federal 
Register (60 FR 40956) a combined application notice (CAN) inviting 
applications for new awards for fiscal year 1996 under a number of the 
Department's direct grant and fellowship programs. Included in the CAN 
under the Research in Education of Individuals with Disabilities 
Program was a closing date for the Field-Initiated Research Projects 
competition, CFDA No. 84.023C. On October 30, 1995 an extension notice 
was published in the Federal Register (60 FR 55247) that revised the 
closing date for that competition to March 29, 1996. The purpose of 
this notice is to revise, once again, the closing date for the Field-
Initiated Research Projects competition.

    This action is taken in consideration of the current proposals in 
the Congress that either eliminate or substantially reduce funding for 
the program. Extending the closing date for this competition allows the 
Department and potential applicants time to consider further 
developments related to the fiscal year 1996 appropriation.
