    In the Federal Register issue of April 9, 1998, in FR Doc. 98-9344, 
on pages 17639 and 17640, the ``INSTRUCTIONS FOR PART III: APPLICATION 
NARRATIVE'' are corrected to read:
    Before preparing the Application Narrative an applicant should read 
carefully the description of the program, the background of the 
program, application requirements, and the selection criteria the 
Secretary will use to evaluate these applications.
    The narrative should encompass each function or activity for which 
funds are being requested and should--
    1. Begin with an Abstract that summarizes the proposed project;

[[Page 20174]]

    2. Describe the proposed project in light of the application 
requirements and each of the selection criteria in the order in which 
the criteria are listed in the application; and
    3. Include any other pertinent information that might assist the 
Secretary in reviewing the application.
    The Secretary strongly requests the applicant to limit the 
Application Narrative to no more than 20 pages (double-spaced, typed on 
one-side only, using font no smaller than 11 point). The Department has 
found that successful applications for similar programs generally meet 
this page limit. In addition to the Application Narrative, the 
applicant must include the cover form (SF-424), budget forms and budget 
narrative, assurances, and a statement regarding how the application 
meets the requirements of GEPA 427. Any supplemental attachments should 
be limited to those that are crucial to supporting the integrity of the 
applicant's project and how it has met application requirements.

    Dated: April 17, 1998.
Gerald N. Tirozzi,
Assistant Secretary, Elementary and Secondary Education.
