Oregon Eligible for Federal Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Funds

The U.S. Departments of Education and Health & Human Services will be accepting revised applications from five states eligible for scaled down funding from the RTTT-ELC competition.  Oregon is one of the five states eligible for funding.  Oregon's resubmission will have to describe (1) the areas in which reductions and adjustments were made for the scaled down funding, and (2) explain any significant changes that have occurred since submitting the application last year.  The maximum funding available to Oregon is $20,508,902.  For more information, there is a good synopsis at First Five Years Fund (http://goo.gl/BqXfj).
