SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: On July
13, 2021, we published in the Federal
Register (86 FR 36722) the NIA for the
National Comprehensive Center on
Improving Literacy for Students With
Disabilities. Under the NIA,
applications were due on September 1,
2021. We are reopening this competition
for affected applicants until September
13, 2021, to allow those applicants more
time to prepare and submit their
applications.
Eligibility: The reopening of this
competition applies to eligible
applicants under the National
Comprehensive Center on Improving
Literacy for Students With Disabilities
competition that are affected applicants.
An eligible applicant for this
competition is defined in the NIA. The
federally declared disaster areas under
these declarations are the jurisdictions
identified by FEMA under declarations
DR–4611–LA and EM–3569–MS in
which assistance to individuals or
public assistance has been authorized.
To determine if you are an affected
applicant, see the Emergency
Declarations available at:
www.fema.gov/disaster/4611,
www.fema.gov/disaster/4611/
designated-areas, www.fema.gov/
disaster/3569, and www.fema.gov/
disaster/3569/designated-areas.
Affected applicants that have already
timely submitted applications under the
FY 2021 National Comprehensive
Center on Improving Literacy for
Students With Disabilities competition
may submit a new application, but they
are not required to do so. If a new
application is not submitted, the
Department will use the application that
was submitted by the original deadline.
If a new application is submitted, the
Department will consider the
application that is last submitted and
timely received. Applications that did
not meet the original deadline must be
resubmitted to be considered for review.
An affected applicant submitting an
application as part of the reopened
competition must provide supporting
information (e.g., by including the
applicant’s organization address) in its
application that it is located in a
jurisdiction that is part of one of the
applicable federally declared disaster
areas and must provide appropriate
supporting documentation, if requested.
We are not reopening the application
period for all applicants. Thus,
applications from applicants that are not
affected applicants may not be
submitted as part of this reopened
period for submission of applications.
Note: All information in the NIA
remains the same, except for the
deadline date for affected applicants.
