Office of Innovation and Improvement; Notice Extending the 
Deadline Date for Transmittal of Applications for the Teaching American 
History Program Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 Competition

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.215X.

SUMMARY: On December 6, 2005, we published in the Federal Register (70 
FR 72624) a notice inviting applications for the Teaching American 
History program's FY 2006 competition. The original notice for this FY 
2006 competition established a February 3, 2006, deadline date for 
eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program. For this 
competition, applicants are required to submit their applications 
electronically through the Department's Electronic Grant Application 
System (e-Application). In order to accommodate a move of the e-
Application system, which will result in the unavailability of the 
system on the original deadline date, we are extending the deadline 
date for transmittal of applications for the Teaching American History 
program FY 2006 competition.

DATES: Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: February 9, 2006. 
(Applications must be received by e-Application no later than 4:30 
p.m., Washington, DC time.)

    Note: Applications for grants under the Teaching American 
History program must be submitted electronically using e-Application 
available through the Department's e-Grants system. You may not e-
mail an electronic copy of a grant application to us. For 
information about how to submit your application electronically, 
please refer to section IV. 6. Other Submission Requirements in the 
December 6, 2005 notice (70 FR 72624). We have not extended the 
deadline for submitting a statement that an applicant qualifies for 
an exception to the electronic submission requirement.

    Deadline for Intergovernmental Review: The deadline date for 
Intergovernmental Review under Executive Order 12732 is extended to 
April 10, 2006.

Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 4W206, Washington, DC 20202-

under this program by the deadline date established in this notice. 
Eligible applicants that submit their applications for the Teaching 
American History program FY 2006 competition to the Department before 
the competition's original deadline date of 4:30 p.m., February 3, 
2006, are not required to resubmit their applications or reapply in 
order to be considered for FY 2006 awards under this program. We

possible to avoid any problems with submitting electronic applications 
on the deadline date. The deadline for submission of applications will 
not be extended any further.
