Secretary's Final Supplemental Priorities and Definitions for Discretionary Grant Programs
In order to support and strengthen the work that educators do every day in collaboration with parents, advocates, and community members, the Secretary issues 11 priorities and related definitions for use in currently authorized discretionary grant programs or programs that may be authorized in the future. The Secretary may choose to use an entire priority for a grant program or a particular competition or use one or more of the priority's component parts. These priorities and definitions replace the supplemental priorities published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2014 and September 14, 2016. However, if a notice inviting applications (NIA) published before the applicability date of this notice of final priorities and definitions included priorities from the December 10, 2014 or September 14, 2016 notices, the included priorities would be in effect for the duration of the applicable competition.
