Planning Grants for Increasing Instructional Time and Reducing Administrative Burdens
In the notice inviting applications (NIA), an error was made regarding the application period, which should be 45 days instead of 30. With this correction, the deadline for transmittal of applications is August 29, 2019. In addition, we are correcting the award size from $150,000 to a range between $150,000 to $250,000. This correction to the award size is necessary because planning costs may vary from State to State. Consequently, the estimated number of awards are corrected from 10 to a range of 6 to 10.
The U.S. Department of Education is committed to attracting as many qualified applicants as possible for its discretionary grant competitions. The Department is also committed to an equitable and transparent application process. OSERS is, therefore, providing to interested applicants technical assistance on the application process and application requirements for this competition.
