Applications Due:

On April 19, 2005, the Secretary published in the Federal Register (70 FR 20360) a notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2005 under the Enhanced Assessment Instruments Grants program. Subsequent to the publication of this notice, the Secretary announced that the Department will be publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) related to modified achievement standards for a limited group of students with disabilities. These regulations may affect the criteria for awarding Enhanced Assessment Instruments Grants. The purpose of this notice is to withdraw the invitation for applications for new awards for Enhanced Assessment Instrument Grants for fiscal year 2005. The url to the Adobe pdf version of the original official application notice is: http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20051800/edocket.access.gpo.gov/2005/pdf/05-7798.pdf The Secretary anticipates re-announcing this competition after publication in the Federal Register of both an NPRM and final regulations that may change the selection criteria for this program. The Department will publish a new notice in the Federal Register inviting applications for new awards for FY 2006 at a later date.
