The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) is providing grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) for innovative model programs providing for the establishment, improvement, or expansion of foreign language study for elementary and secondary school students. Under this competition, five-year grants will be awarded to LEAs to work in partnership with one or more institutions of higher education to establish or expand articulated programs of study in languages critical to United States national security in order to enable successful students to achieve a superior level of proficiency in those languages.
