FY16 Perkins Application Reviews Update


The FLA office is wrapping up staff reviews of the FY16 Perkins Local Applications.  Approval Status letters with specific comments will begin to go out via email beginning the week of December 7, 2015 through the end of December.  In some instances, applicants will submit missing required documentation and/or provide additional narrative before full approval is awarded and claims for reimbursement are paid.  


The due date for first quarter claims is now moved to the second quarter due date.  This means all payments made by the fiscal agent by or before December 31, 2014 MUST be claimed by the close of business on January 29, 2015.   Details for submitting those claims will be included in your approval letter.  We will provide additional information regarding the new online claims process as soon as it becomes available.

Thank you for your patience as we work on our new Perkins processes for FY16.
