Title: Direct Grant Programs and Definitions That Apply to Department Regulations 
Abstract: The Secretary proposes to amend the regulations in 34 CFR part 75 and part 77 to align the discretionary grant selection criteria and continuation award standards with the performance management standards established for Department of Education programs. These amendments would improve the Department's ability to determine (1) whether discretionary grant programs are achieving established performance measures under the Government Performance and Results Act and other performance management requirements and (2) whether projects funded by the Department are establishing and meeting challenging and realistic performance milestones and targets. The Secretary also proposes an amendment to improve financial management of discretionary grants.
