Additional Information of Eligibility:
Eligible Applicants: State entities (SEs) in States with a specific State statute authorizing the granting of charters to schools.

Under section 4303(e)(1) of the ESEA, no SE may receive a grant under this competition for use in a State in which an SE has a current CSP State Entities grant.

The Department has made one set of new section 4303 of the ESEA CSP State Entities grants, in FY 2017.

Accordingly, no SE may receive a grant under this competition for use in a State in which an SE received a new State Entities grant in FY 2017 and is currently using the grant; these States are Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, and Wisconsin.

SEs in States in which an SEA has a current CSP grant for SEAs that was awarded prior to FY 2017, under the ESEA, as amended by NCLB, are eligible to apply for a CSP State Entities grant under this competition, so long as no other SE in the State has a current CSP State Entities grant.

In addition, consistent with section 4303(e)(1) of the ESEA, if multiple SEs in a State submit applications that receive high enough scores to be recommended for funding under this competition, only the highest-scoring application among such State entities would be funded.
