Changes in the upcoming 2014-15 Perkins IV Applications (One-year extension)

  • Limits on the number of major efforts: In 2013-14 programs could either fund one new major effort, or complete efforts already begun. Following this guideline is still strongly encouraged for 2014-15. In 2014-15 the number of major efforts will be determined by grant amount.
Grant amount
Number of efforts permitted
$151,000 and above

Major efforts should focus on improving performance in indicators not meeting state targets.

  • Electronic submission required: New Perkins forms will allow us to collect data directly from the Word format applications. PDF format will not be accepted this year. One application must be e-mailed and one application (with original signatures).
  • First-time Applicants: First-time applicants will not be eligible to apply for 2014-15 Perkins funds. Only previously funded entities are eligible this year. Questions can be directed to: Deb Reiter, 518.486.1547
