* The Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017, would provide, on an annualized basis, $26,948,673 for the Arts in Education program, of which we would use an estimated $7,100,000 for this competition. The actual level of funding, if any, depends on final congressional action. However, we are inviting applications to allow enough time to complete the grant process if Congress appropriates funds for this program.

** In FY 2015 and FY 2016, the PDAE program did not run a new competition. Continuation awards were made to those grantees that received initial awards in FY 2014.
