Fabiano -> FOREIGN LANGUAGE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM(FLAP) GRANTS (3/26/2008 1:55:06 PM)

We expect to announce a competition to fund a small number of new Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grants in fiscal year 2008.  At this time we are unable to provide specific details about the competition. We anticipate publishing the FLAP application notice in the Federal Register and at www.grants.gov by the end of March.  Please register at www.grants.gov. The reference number for the FLAP LEA program is 84.293. If you have registered in the past, your registration needs to be updated annually.
While we are not able to disclose Departmental plans, or the terms and conditions of the  Fiscal Year 2008 FLAP grant competition, we would like to note the 2008 Appropriations Act language for the FLAP program below:
"That $3,000,000 of the funds available for the Foreign Language Assistance Program shall be available for 5-year grants to local educational agencies that would work in partnership with one or more institutions of higher education to establish or expand articulated programs of study in languages critical to United States national security that will enable successful students to advance from elementary school through college to achieve a superior level of proficiency in those languages."
Reviewing the FLAP resource page (link below) will give you general information that will be helpful in writing a proposal. Please note that the 2008 application will not be identical to the 2006.
