Community Technology Centers Program

AGENCY: Office of Vocational and Adult Education, Department of Education

ACTION: Notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2003 for novice applicants.

Purpose of Program: As authorized by Title V, Part D, Subpart 11, Section 5511-13 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, the purpose of the Community Technology Centers (CTC) program is to assist eligible applicants to create or expand community technology centers that will provide disadvantaged residents of economically distressed urban and rural communities with access to information technology and related training.

The CTC program novice applicant competition gives absolute priority to those applicants who will focus on improving the academic achievement of low-achieving secondary school students while continuing to provide a community technology center for all members of their community. Thus, grant recipients must meet this priority as they use grant funds to create or expand community technology centers that expand access to information technology and related training for disadvantaged residents of distressed urban or rural communities and evaluate the effectiveness of this project.

Eligible Applicants: Eligible applicants shall be an institution of higher education, a State educational agency, a local educational agency, an entity (such as a foundation, museum, library, for-profit business, public or private nonprofit organization, or community-based organization, including faith-based organizations), or consortia thereof, that also meet the definition of a “novice applicant,” as that term is defined in 34 CFR 75.225(a)(1) (see “Supplementary
Information: Novice Applicants” for more information on this requirement). In addition, eligible applicants shall have the capacity to significantly expand access to computers and related services for disadvantaged residents of economically distressed urban and rural communities who would otherwise be denied such access.
