Normally 6 months.
Informal communication is encouraged before preparing a formal application. This program is generally not subject to the intergovernmental review requirements of E.O. 12372 as implemented by 10 CFR 1005. However, certain applications for financial assistance awards may require this review. Such applications, including those from governmental or nongovernmental entities that involve research, development, or demonstration activities are subject to the provisions of the Executive Order and 10 CFR Part 1005 when such activities: (1) Have a unique geographic focus and are directly relevant to the governmental responsibilities of a State or local government within the geographic area; (2) necessitate preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement under NEPA; or (3) are to be initiated at a particular site or location and require unusual measures to limit the possibility of adverse exposure or hazard to the general public. Entities planning to submit such applications should coordinate with the information contact listed below for further information.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Proposals for renewal are subject to review and acceptance by the Headquarters Office.
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
