News & Notes


Federal Education Budget FY 2010

Recently, Catherine emailed a list of
funding opportunities available in the
new federal education budget.

According to Ed Review, the proposed
budget includes "$46.7 billion in
discretionary funding for the U.S.
Department of Education. The request
(an increase of $1.3 billion over last
year's regular appropriation) builds on
the investments already made in the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(ARRA) to give preschoolers the skills
they need to prepare for kindergarten,
turn-around under-performing schools,
and improve teacher effectiveness. It
also significantly increases the federal
government's commitment to make
college accessible and affordable to all
students."

The OER is monitoring announcements
closely and we will forward Requests
for Proposals and Applications as soon
as they are released. This is a good time
to start looking at the initiatives
expected to come out in the next few
months and begin conversations with
colleagues about potential
collaborations.
