Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

Applications must be received by the Program Office by April 1 of each fiscal year.

Note: 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

The application processing time is 75 days as required by 15 U.S.C. 1539 (sole source selection).

Preapplication Coordination

The standard application forms are furnished by NOAA. 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.

Note: 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.

Appeals

None.

Note: 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).

Renewals

Grants and cooperative agreements are generally approved on an annual basis, but may be continued beyond the initial project period, subject to approved time frame and scope of work, satisfactory progress, and availability of funds. The Department of Commerce has the discretion to renew the award to increase funding, or extend the period of performance.

Note: 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.
