How to apply...
Applications must be prepared in accordance with program regulations and guidelines, and must be submitted prior to the announced deadline. This program is subject to the provisions of OMB Circular No. A-110.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Based on an evaluation panel of outside experts and on internal administrative review, the Director of the Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs, approves applications for support. Awards are for project periods ranging from one to five years. Continuation of multi-year awards are conditioned on the availability of funds and on the grantees' demonstration of substantial progress in attaining the objectives of the projects. Following negotiations with the approved applicant, the Grants Officer sends the notification of grant award to the recipient.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
