Notice Inviting Participants to Pre-Application Technical 
Assistance Workshops for Those Submitting a Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 
Planning Grant or Development Grant Application Under the Strengthening 
Institutions Program and the Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program

SUMMARY: The Department of Education will conduct three pre-application 
technical assistance workshops for those intending to submit Fiscal 
Year 1999 applications under the Strengthening Institutions Program, 
and the Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program. At these workshops, 
Department of Education staff will assist prospective planning grant or 
developing grant applicants in preparing eligibility data and in 
developing a project design in the form of an application. They will 
provide budget information as well as deal with project design issues.
    The Department is holding these workshops to give early assistance 
to potential applicants even though we have not yet officially 
announced a closing date for receipt of applications. However, Congress 
recently reauthorized the Higher Education Act (HEA) and both programs 
were modified. The Department will discuss those modifications and 
their impact on the development of institutional applications for 
    The technical assistance workshops will be held as follows:
