2012-2013 NCLB Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC)
For LEAs that have not commenced the application process, the 2012-2013 NCLB Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC) form is available in eGrants and is populated with the revised planning amount for public school districts or planning amount for special LEAs. The 2012–2013 NCLB ADC form initiates the application process for programs in the 2012–2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application. Eligible applicants use the ADC form to identify how they will apply in the grant application for each funding source. The information that is submitted on this form is considered to be binding. Applicants are advised to complete the process of obtaining local board approval, as appropriate, and ensure accuracy before submitting the form. The NCLB ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2012–2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application.
Public school districts which have submitted their 2012-2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application based on preliminary planning amounts may adjust budgets and support schedules as appropriate during the negotiation process. If a notice of grant award (NOGA) has been awarded, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will initiate budget adjustments and will adjust the largest budgeted class/object code to incorporate the revised planning amounts.

Eligible applicants must apply through the eGrants system. To apply, applicants must have appropriate TEA Secure Environment (TEA SE) access.
