PURA: PEGPETIA Grant Program

Public, Educational and Governmental Programming and Educational Technology Investment Account (PEGPETIA) Grant Program
In light of Public Act 13-184, An Act Concerning Expenditures and Revenue for the Biennium Ending June 30, 2015, funding for the PEGPETIA Grant Program has been cut back for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 beginning on July 1, 2013.
The PEGPETIA account has been funded through fiscal year 2012/2013, and the PURA has continued to accept applications for PEGPETIA grants.  The Authority is reviewing the applications and will award the grants until the PEGPETIA funds are exhausted.  The Authority will seek to award PEGPETIA grants to as many applicants as possible on an equitable basis.  Nevertheless, the limited funds could restrict the size of the grant award and/or become exhausted before all pending applications are addressed.  In the event funds are exhausted before the Authority has completed its review of all pending applications, those dockets will be suspended and the applicants notified.  At the time funding is restored, the PURA will confirm with pending applicants, their interest in a PEGPETIA Grant, and the Authority will request that their applications be updated.  Once the applications have been updated, the PURA’s review process will be expedited and the issuance of Decisions in those dockets prioritized.
Accordingly, the PURA will suspend the PEGPETIA Grant Program as of July 1, 2013, and not accept any new applications until funding is restored.  The Authority will issue a notice when it will begin accepting new applications.
