The Education Department’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education seeks cooperative agreement applications for FY2016 Equity Assistance Centers.

The Education Department’s (ED) Office of Elementary and Secondary Education seeks cooperative agreement applications for FY2016 Equity Assistance Centers (EACs) to operate regional facilities to provide technical assistance and training in the reparation, adoption and implementation of plans for the desegregation of public schools, and in the development of effective methods of coping with special educational problems occasioned by desegregation.

ED said that for the sake of this announcement, desegregation means “plans for equity, including desegregation based on race, national origin, sex, and religion."

According to the announcement, project activities may include but are not limited to:

  • dissemination of information regarding effective methods of coping with special educational problems occasioned by desegregation;
  • assistance and advice in coping with these problems;
  • and training designed to improve the ability of teachers, supervisors, counselors, parents, community members, community organizations, and other elementary or secondary school personnel to deal effectively with special educational problems occasioned by desegregation.

Up to $6.5 million in funding will be available, ED said, for up to four awards ranging from $1.4 million to $1.7 million annually for projects of up to five years in duration.

Eligible applicants include any public agency, other than a state educational agency or a school board, or a private, nonprofit organization.

The National Endowment for the Humanities recently reported an ongoing scam that’s using Facebook to identify victims.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently reported an ongoing scam that is using Facebook to identify victims.

Someone claiming to be an NEH employee is contacting individuals through Facebook Messenger, NEH said in a release, and is claiming these individuals are “on a list for a grant,” and instructing them to send payment before they can claim their award.

NEH said its employees will never ask anyone to send money to receive a grant or other forms of financial assistance, nor will NEH and its employees ever ask anyone to wire money or add money to a prepaid debit card to pay for associated processing or delivery fees.

The National Endowment for the Humanities does not use Facebook to contact individuals concerning grant awards, NEH said, and if the name on the Facebook account is familiar—such as a friend or NEH employee—the scammer has created the account to impersonate someone the victim knows in order to initiate and support the scheme.

NEH asked that individuals never provide any personal information or send money to anyone claiming to be an NEH employee.

The Endowment’s official Facebook page can be found at http://bit.ly/28OLkvX, which has been verified by Facebook, NEH said.

Individuals contacted by a person claiming to be an NEH employee can report the incident at http://bit.ly/28Q1cUW or call NEH’s Office of the Inspector General at 1-877-786-7598.
