Posted on the Department of Education Promise Neighborhoods web site this afternoon.
Due to the impact of Hurricane Irene, the Department plans to extend the Promise Neighborhoods application deadline (for both planning and implementation grants) until 4:30 PM EST on Tuesday, September 13, 2011. We will officially announce the new deadline in the Federal Register during the week of September 6. Please continue to check the website for updates.
UNCA was among those asking for this extension due to flooding and power outages in much of the mid-Atlantic and northeast due to Hurricane Irene. Questions about the status of your application should be directed to the Department.
