Application for Grants Under the Reading Excellence Act

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice to extend deadline for application for assistance under 
the Reading Excellence Act.


SUMMARY: The Secretary of Education announces the extension of the 
deadline for the Colorado State educational agency (SEA) to apply for a 
Fiscal Year 1999 new award under the Reading Excellence Act.

DATES: The new deadline for the Colorado SEA to submit its application 
will be May 21, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To obtain further information, contact 
Dr. Joseph C. Conaty, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue 
SW, Room 5C141, Washington, DC 20202-6200; telephone (202) 260-8228; or 
email reading__excellence@ed.gov. Individuals who use a 
telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal 
Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The application package for the Reading 
Excellence Act, a competitive state grant program, was made available 
on April 3, 1999. The Department established the original closing date 
of May 7, 1999 on April 5, 1999 (64 FR 16574).

    On May 6, 1999, the state of Colorado requested an extension of the 
deadline because the April 20, 1999, tragedy in Littleton, Colorado, 
prevented the SEA from working on its grant application.

    In recognition of the unusual circumstances, the Secretary extends 
the deadline for the Colorado SEA application to May 21, 1999.
