Application Instructions (Updated for 2011 payments)

NOTE: EAC has streamlined the process for requesting and receiving requirements payments. We are asking states to submit the signed certification and assurances forms at the time the certification letter requesting funds is submitted. This will allow us to expedite the award process.

EAC has provided the following resources to help officials obtain requirements payments, including 2011 funds and remaining 2008, 2009 and 2010 funds
