Deadlines and process...
None, except those imposed by each State and the general requirement of the Commission; that is, proposed projects shall be included in each of the State's approved project funding program which is submitted annually, on or before December 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
Usually within 45 days after the receipt of the application at the Commission. Under the total audit concept, audits will be made on an organization-wide basis (rather than grant-by-grant) under GAO guidelines, Standards for Audit of Governmental Organizations, Programs, Activities and Functions, and for programs covered by A-102, Attachment P.
The State Highway Department coordinates with the Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation (DOT), as in the case of federally-aided highway construction. The State Alternate's Office is the Coordinator for the Governor for Appalachian investments. Preapplication conferences with the Appalachian Local Development District Director or the State Alternate's office can determine within a few weeks if the Director or State Representative will provide guidance on specific problems and technical assistance in the preparation of applications. An environmental impact statement is required for this program. The standard application forms as furnished by the Federal agency and required by OMB Circular No. A-102 must be used for this program. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
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).
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.
