WHAT’S NEW

  • The program is actively searching for peer reviewers to assess applications to the Native Hawaiian Education Program. Please send resumes and the Peer Reviewer Information Checklist to Hawaiian@ed.gov.
  • The Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2020, overrides the limitation in section 6205(b) of the ESEA to provide that the 5 percent limitation on the use of funds for administrative purposes applies only to direct administrative costs. In the FY 2020 competition, this five percent limit only includes direct administrative costs, and not indirect costs. For further information contact Joanne Osborne. A notice regarding this change was released on the Federal Register on January 21, 2020 and can be found HERE.
