The Honorable Scott Stump
Assistant Secretary for Career, Technical, and Adult
Education Office of Career, Technical, and Adult
Education
U.S. Department of
Education 400 Maryland
Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202
Dear Assistant Secretary Stump:
Pursuant to section 3511 of Division A of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security
Act (CARES Act), Pub. L. No. 116-136, 134 Stat. 281 (Mar. 27, 2020), I am writing to
request a waiver on behalf of the State educational agency (SEA) and its subgrantees (e.g.,
local educational agencies (LEAs), other agencies and organizations, and institutions of higher
education) of section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), to extend the
period of availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funds for programs in which the SEA
participates as the eligible agency until September 30, 2021. The programs are (check the
programs for which the waiver is requested):
State grants authorized by Title I of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical
Education Act of 2006
State grants authorized by Title II of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity
Act (i.e., the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act)
I am requesting this (these) waiver(s) because it is not possible to obligate funds on a timely
basis, as originally planned, due to extensive school and program disruptions in the State.
These disruptions are in response to extraordinary circumstances for which a national
emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic has been duly declared by the President of the
United States under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act,
P.L. 100-707, and will protect the health and safety of students, staff, and our communities.
In seeking these waivers, I assure that:
