Purpose of Program:
NACTEP provides grants to improve career and technical education (CTE) programs that are consistent with the purposes of the Carl D.
Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (the Act) and that benefit Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
This notice invites applications for a NACTEP competition that implements section 116 of the Act, enacted August 12, 200 6. Section 116 of the Act authorizes the Secretary to award grants to, or enter into cooperative agreements or contracts with, Indian Tribes, Tribal organizations, and Alaska Native entities to operate CTE projects that improve CTE for Native American and Alaska Native students.
Under section 116 of the Act, Bureau-funded schools (as defined in this notice) proposing to fund secondary programs are not eligible to receive an award directly from the Secretary.
However, an Indian Tribe, Tribal organization, Alaska Native entity, or Bureau-funded school may use its award to assist a secondary school operated or supported by the U. S. Department of the Interior to carry out CTE programs.
A Bureau-funded school that is not proposing a secondary program is eligible for assistance under NACTEP.
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 8 4. 101A.
We are participating as a partner in the Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site.
NACTEP, CFDA number 8 4. 101A, is included in this project.
We request your participation in Grants.gov.
If you choose to submit your application electronically, you must use the Governmentwide Grants.gov Apply site at www.Grants.gov.
You may not email an electronic copy of a grant application to us.
A Grants.gov applicant must apply online using Workspace, a shared environment where members of a grant team may simultaneously access and edit different webforms within an application.
An applicant can create an individual Workspace for each application notice and, thus, establish for that application a collaborative application package that allows more than one person in the applicant's organization to work concurrently on an application.
The applicant can, thus, assign other users to participate in the Workspace.
The system also enables the applicant to reuse forms from previous submissions; check them in and out and complete them; and submit its application package.
For access to complete instructions on how to apply, refer to:
You may access the electronic grant application for NACTEP at www.Grants.gov.
You must search for the downloadable application package for this competition by the CFDA number.
Do not include the CFDA number's alpha suffix in your search (e.g., search for 8 4. 101, not 8 4. 101A).
