2241, the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, states that within the $9,489,000 provided for Training and Advisory Services in FY 2009, the Congress made $2,500,000 available for one-time competitive grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) for technical assistance in preparing, adopting, or modifying, and implementing student assignment plans to avoid racial isolation and resegregation in the Nation's schools, and to facilitate student diversity, within the parameters of current law.
