On March 19, 2020, the Iowa Department of Education received a request for reconsideration filed by the Community Action of Southeast Iowa ("Applicant"), seeking reconsideration of a decision by the Department to not fund Shared Visions grant requests.
The rule governing reconsideration provides only three grounds for me to grant this request:1. The decision process was conducted in violation of statue or rule; 2. The decision violates state or federal law, policy, or rule (to be cited in the Request); 3. The decision process involved a conflict of interest.
Absent a finding of one of the three grounds, the Applicants request cannot be granted.
The Applicants request for reconsideration is DENIED. The Application is encouraged to re-apply at the next funding opportunity.
