Purpose of Program: Through the CSP Grants to State Entities (CSP State Entities) competition (CFDA number 84.282A), the Department awards grants to ``State entities'' (as defined in this notice) to enable them to award subgrants to ``eligible applicants'' (as defined in this notice) to enable such eligible applicants to open and prepare for the operation of new ``charter schools'' (as defined in this notice) and to ``replicate'' (as defined in this notice) and ``expand'' (as defined in this notice) ``high-quality charter schools'' (as defined in this notice). Grant funds may also be used to provide technical assistance to eligible applicants and ``authorized public chartering agencies'' (as defined in this notice) in opening and preparing for the operation of new charter schools, or replicating or expanding high-quality charter schools; and to work with authorized public chartering agencies to improve authorizing quality, including developing capacity for, and conducting, fiscal oversight and auditing of charter schools. Background: The CSP State Entities program provides financial assistance to State entities to support charter schools that serve elementary and secondary school students in a given ``State'' (as defined in this notice). Charter schools receiving funds under the CSP State Entities program also may serve students in ``early childhood education programs'' (as defined in this notice) or postsecondary students. The CSP State Entities program is newly authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (20 U.S.C. 7221-7221j).1 This notice contains information regarding eligibility, priorities, definitions, application requirements, and selection criteria under the new law.--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Prior to enactment of the ESSA, the ESEA, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), authorized the Secretary to make awards to State educational agencies to enable them to conduct charter school subgrant programs in their States. Unless otherwise indicated, all references to the ESEA in this notice are to the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA.---------------------------------------------------------------------------Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.282A.

On April 25, 2017, we published in the Federal Register (82 FR 19030) a notice of correction for a notice inviting applications for new awards for FY 2017 for the CSP Grants to State Entities program. This notice corrects the CFDA number in the notice of correction. All other requirements and conditions stated in the notice inviting applications, as amended by the notice of correction, remain the same. Correction In FR Doc. No. 2017-08362, in the Federal Register of April 25, 2017 (82 FR 19030), on page 19030, in the left column, under the heading ``Action'', after the phrase ``Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number:'', we correct the CFDA number to read ``84.282A''.
