Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Indian 
Education Formula Grants to Local Educational Agencies; Notice Inviting 
Applications for New Awards for Fiscal Year (FY) 2002, including 
Applications for Integration of Services Projects Under Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Section 7116

    Purpose of Program: The Indian Education Formula Grants program 
provides grants to support local educational agencies (LEAs) in their 
efforts to reform elementary and secondary schools programs that serve 
Indian students. The programs funded must be based on the same 
challenging State academic content and student academic achievement 
standards applied to all students, and are designed to assist Indian 
students in meeting those standards. Under ESEA section 7116, 
Integration of Services, the Indian Education Formula Grant program 
also authorizes the consolidation of funds for Federal programs 
exclusively serving Indian children, or the funds reserved under 
Federal programs to exclusively service Indian children under a 
statutory or administrative formula, for the purposes of providing 
education and related services that would be used to serve Indian 
students. Instructions for an Integration of Services project are 
included in the application package.
    Eligible Applicants: LEAs and certain schools funded by the Bureau 
of Indian Affairs, and Indian tribes under certain conditions, as 
prescribed by statute in ESEA section 7112(b).
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: July 8, 2002.
    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: September 6, 2002.
    Applications Available: June 5, 2002.
    Estimated Available Funds: The appropriation for this program for 
fiscal year 2002 is $97,133,000, which should be sufficient to fund all 
eligible applicants.
    Estimated Range of Awards: $3,000 to $2,400,000.
    Estimated Average Size of Awards: $76,183.
    Estimated Number of Awards: 1,275.

    Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this 

    Project Period: Up to 60 months.
    Budget Requirement: All projects with budgets of $115,000 or more 
must plan and budget for one person to attend a two day Project 
Directors' meeting to be held in Washington, DC in mid-September 2002. 
Other projects not meeting the level of funding may attend at their 
    Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR Parts 75, 77, 79, 80, 81, 
82, 85, 86, 97, 98, and 99.

    Note: 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 ESEA section 7118(d) that 
reallocation of those funds to late applicants would best assist in 
advancing the purposes of the program, may be less that the 
applicant would have received had it's application been submitted on
