Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

Applications should be submitted to the appropriate Regional Office no later than June 30 of the year following the year of appropriation to allow sufficient time for review and processing prior to the September 30 reallotment deadline.

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

Approval time averages 45 days.

Preapplication Coordination

An applicant (State) should seek preapplication assistance from the appropriate EPA Regional Office. The State is required to prepare and provide for public comment on a plan identifying the intended uses (Intended Use Plan, or IUP) of the funds in the DWSRF and how those uses support the goals of the DWSRF. The IUP is to be submitted no later than the application. An environmental impact statement is not required prior to grant award; however, a State environmental review process must be applied to all subsequent State assistance for drinking water systems. 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

As described in EPA's Regulation 40 CFR Part 31, Subpart F.

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

For those portions of the State program that do not change from year to year, a subsequent grant application may incorporate by reference relevant portions of the previous year's application which have not changed and are placed in its operating agreement.

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.
