WEEA Grants Correction

Hi everyone:

My apologies. I had the wrong info about the cancellation of the WEEA grant
competition. Something got lost in translation somewhere, I guess. Anyway, it
is now my understanding that Congress did not restrict the funding. However,
because the amount appropriated ($3 million for FY98) was lower than requested,
the Education Dept. determined that it did not have enough money for any new
programs. It will fund 6 existing programs and the WEEA Equity Resource Center.
Questions can be directed to Beth Baggett at the Dept. of Education, 202/260-
