SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  On December 15, 2015, the Secretary invited 
applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2015 under the SPDG 
competition (79 FR 74071). The purpose of this program, authorized by 
the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), is to assist 
State educational agencies (SEAs) in reforming and improving their 
systems for personnel preparation and professional development in early 
intervention, educational, and transition services in order to improve 
results for children with disabilities.
    The notice inviting applications established a January 29, 2015, 
deadline for the submission of applications. To ensure that all 
interested parties are provided a minimum of 60 days to submit their 
applications, we are extending the application period for fifteen (15) 
days to February 13, 2015. Consequently, we are also extending the 
deadline for intergovernmental review to April 14, 2015. All other 
information in the December 15, 2014, notice, including the two 
absolute priorities, remains the same.
