Deadlines and process...
A State plan for the next fiscal year is required by August 15.
When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will
be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received.
When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.
Range of Approval/Disapproval Time
A determination will be made within 30 days of submission of a completed plan.
Application is made through submission of a State Plan of Program Operation and Administration as required by the Federal agency. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the office or official designated as the single point of contact in his or her State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review.
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.
Local agency appeals: The State agency provides a hearing appeal procedure for a local agency adversely affected by a State agency or local agency action. The right to appeal is granted whenever an action would adversely affect participation. Individual participant appeals: The State agency provides a hearing appeal procedure for any individual who receives a State or local agency action that results in denial of benefits under the program.
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).
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.
