Funding Status

FY 2011

The Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, P.L. 112-10, was passed by Congress on April 15, 2011. It provides funding for the Department of Education for the remainder of Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2011. The FY 2011 appropriation for the AANAPISI program is $3,198,590, a reduction of $401,410 from the FY 2010 level. The Department anticipates no reduction in continuation awards. We do not plan to conduct a competition for new awards for this program using discretionary funding from the FY 2011 appropriation. However, mandatory funding of $3.9 million, appropriated by the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA), will support a competition for new awards in the mandatory AANAPISI program in FY 2011.
