AGENCY: Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, Department of Education.
ACTION: Notice reopening the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Projects fiscal year (FY) 2010 competition.

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.133P-1.

SUMMARY: The Department of Education announces the reopening of the competition for new awards under National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR)--Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program--Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Projects for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010.

We are establishing a new deadline date for the transmittal of applications. We are taking this action because the recent closure of the U.S. Federal government on February 5, 8, and 9, 2010 due to blizzard conditions in the Mid-Atlantic Region may have interfered with applicants' ability to access needed technical assistance through the e-Grants Help Desk. The reopening is intended to ensure that all potential applicants have the opportunity to submit applications under this competition. If you have already successfully submitted an e-application for this grant competition, you do not need to resubmit your application.

Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: April 1, 2010.
