**TIP UPDATE
In July, HEAB received our appropriations from the federal Department of Education for 2004-05 under the Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (LEAP) and Special Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (SLEAP). The federal LEAP and SLEAP programs partially fund the TIP Grant. The amount of these appropriations is greater than the estimates which the Department of Education provided in March, so there is now more money available for TIP than previously expected. Initial TIP allocations have been increased, and the new allocations were e-mailed to the schools on July 21. The Continuing TIP award will remain $1400. There were not enough additional funds to significantly increase the Continuing award.
