3. Are the due dates firm for all grants?

Application due dates for discretionary/competitive grants are firm. An On-line Application must be submitted to ADE by midnight on the due date, which is posted in the Fund Alert. If it is a Hardcopy Application it must reside at ADE no later than 5pm on the due date as specified in the funding information provided, and postmarks are not considered.

In general, due dates for grants based on entitlement monies (typically non-competitive and based on formula) are less firm and schools eligible for these funds may be eligible to apply beyond the posted deadline. Contact the appropriate program office to verify the availability of funding beyond the posted deadline.
