Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible Applicants: Nonprofit organizations, or consortia of nonprofit organizations and local educational agencies (LEAs), proposing a PIRC project to provide services only in the State of Delaware. The Secretary seeks to have a PIRC project to assist parents in each State. We are limiting eligible applicants to organizations that would provide services in the State of Delaware because no applicant from the FY 2006 competition that proposed to provide services in the State of Delaware proposed a project of sufficient quality to demonstrate that it was likely to succeed in meeting the purposes of the PIRC program. Except for the State of Delaware and Guam, at least one application was funded in each of the other States from the FY 2006 PIRC competition. A notice inviting applications to provide PIRC services in Guam is published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register. Faith-based and community organizations are eligible to apply for funding provided that they are nonprofit organizations, as defined elsewhere in the notice inviting applications. For an application submitted by a consortium that includes a nonprofit organization and one or more LEAs, the nonprofit organization must serve as the applicant and fiscal agent for the consortium. State and local governments, including LEAs, intermediate school districts, and schools, are not eligible to submit an application on behalf of a consortium or serve as the fiscal agent of a PIRC grant. Applications proposing to implement PIRC projects in other States and applications proposing PIRC projects to provide services in more than one State (even if an application includes services in the State of Delaware) will not be considered. Note: We define the term nonprofit organization for purposes of the PIRC program as an organization that-- (1) Is owned and operated by one or more corporations or associations whose net earnings do not benefit, and cannot lawfully benefit, any private shareholder or entity, as set forth in 34 CFR part 77; and (2) Represents the interests of parents of pre-school and school-age children (including parents who are educationally or economically disadvantaged), or is governed by a board of directors whose membership includes such parents.
