III. b. 5. B. ii. Describe how the eligible agency will ensure direct and equitable access to all eligible providers to apply and compete for funds and how the eligible agency will ensure that it is using the same grant or contract announcement and application procedure for all eligible providers

Current Narrative:

The Eligible Agency administering Title II programs in Idaho is Idaho Career Technical Education. ICTE oversees all outreach and notification processes, as well as submission and review processes to ensure consistency and fairness. The announcement, due dates, application submission procedure, and review process is the same for all applicants and across all regions. The same process will be used for reviewing applications. The same application form and rubric is used for all applicants seeking to provide services under Section 231 and Section 225, as described in part (i) above.

A separate, but substantially similar, application form and rubric is used for all applicants seeking funds under Section 243. This application only differs in that it solicits additional information regarding the Civics and Integrated Education and Training components to ensure compliance with the requirements set forth in Section 243 and related regulations.

ICTE issued a Notice of Grant Availability (NGA) in each of the major newspapers serving Idaho. This NGA contains general information about the grant and directed interested parties to ICTE for further information and application materials. Information about the grant was posted on the Division's website and distributed to other core WIOA programs and partners, One-Stop providers, regional planning groups, other state and local stakeholders, as well as groups representing other types of eligible providers such as non-profit and library associations.

Promotional materials directed entities wishing to apply for funding to contact ICTE for a complete grant application packet or packets, including an electronic copy of the application in Word or another format to be completed by the applicant.
