Common Instructions for Applicants to U.S. Department of Education Discretionary Grant Programs

In an effort to reduce barriers for applicants seeking U.S. Department of Education (US ED) discretionary grant competition funds, the US ED has revised its common set of instructions for applying to US ED discretionary grant programs. All future individual notices inviting applications (NIAs) will reference the common instructions in order to provide a centralized source of updated information.

See the Notice by the U.S. Department of Education dated 2/13/2019 on the Federal Register website for more information. These instructions supersede the version published on 2/12/2018.
