Indian Education Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies;
Notice Inviting Applications for Awards for Fiscal Year (FY) 2000

    Purpose of Program: The Indian Education Formula Grant program
provides grants to support local educational agencies in their efforts
to reform elementary and secondary school programs that serve Indian
students. The programs funded are to be based on challenging State
content standards and State student performance standards used for all
students, and be designed to assist Indian students to meet those
    Eligible Applicants: Local educational agencies (LEAs) and certain
schools funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Indian tribes under
certain conditions.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: June 2, 2000.
Applications not meeting the deadline will not be considered for
funding in the initial allocation of awards. However, if funds become
available after the initial allocation of funds, applications not
meeting the deadline may be considered for funding if the Secretary
determines under section 9117(d) of the Elementary and Secondary
Education Act of 1965, as amended, that reallocation of those funds to
late applicants would best assist in advancing the purposes of the
program. However, the amount and date of an individual award, if any is
made under this provision, may be less than the applicant would have
received had the application been submitted on time.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: August 2, 2000.
    Applications Available: April 24, 2000.
    Available Funds: The appropriation for this program for fiscal year
2000 is $62,000,000, which should be sufficient to fund all eligible
    Estimated Range of Awards: $3,000 to $1,400,000.
    Estimated Average Size of Awards: $48,818.
    Estimated Number of Awards: 1,270.
