Guide to U.S. Department of Education Programs. Fiscal Year 2011
US Department of Education
This paper provides an overview of U.S. Department of Education programs authorized and funded under federal law. It includes information as well on the laboratories, centers, and other facilities funded by the Department that provide important resources for education. Each entry, which gives a brief overview of a program or resource, is listed initially by a broad topical heading. The Guide is organized alphabetically according to these topical headings, and then alphabetically by program title within each heading. The program title as well as any commonly or formerly used names for the program come next, followed by the name of the principal office that administers the program. A unique identifier, either a number based on the CFDA (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance) or an assigned ED number follows. After the CFDA or ED number, information is provided about the entities that are eligible to apply to programs. Next comes information on any current competitions, including application deadlines; this is followed by a categorical description of type of assistance, such as "formula grants" or "competitive/discretionary grants," by which a program operates. Funding levels for FY 2011 and the previous two fiscal years, a three-year format similar to the federal government's annual budget, follow next. Programs covered in this Guide are presented in the areas of: (1) Academic Improvement; (2) Adult Education; (3) Assessment; (4) Career and Technical Education; (5) Child Care; (6) Civics; (7) Correctional Education; (8) Disability and Rehabilitation Research; (9) Disadvantaged Persons; (10) English Language Acquisition; (11) Federal Student Aid; (12) Foreign Language Instruction; (13) Higher and Continuing Education; (14) Impact Aid; (15) Indian Education; (16) International Education; (17) Migrant Education; (18) Postsecondary Improvement; (19) Professional Development; (20) Reading; (21) Rehabilitation; (22) Research; (23) Safe and Drug-Free Schools; (24) School Improvement; (25) Special Education; (26) Statistics; (27) Teacher and Principal Quality; (28) Technical Assistance; (29) Technology; and (30) Telecommunications.
