Applicant Information


CAPs are no longer required to submit an application on an annual basis. However, in the event the program is redesignated or the statutory requirements of the assurances change, the CAP must submit assurances on form 1820-0520 (MS Word, 43KB) as part of the application package.

Required Forms

CAPs must submit a signed "Certification Regarding Lobbying" each year (OMB Form ED 80-013) to comply with the certification requirements under 34 CFR Part 82, "New Restrictions on Lobbying." 

CAPs also submit the RSA-227 (OMB Control #: 1820-0528) after the close each Federal fiscal year. The RSA-227 is due by December 30 each year and CAPs submit the report via the RSAMIS.
