Deadlines and process...
All eligible applicants are notified of target dates and any applicable deadlines in CSEPP's annual cooperative agreement guidance package.
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/Disapproval determinations are made approximately 90 days from the date of application submissions. Preliminary budget decision advisory letters are distributed before September 30. Actual awards are based on Congressional passage and Presidential approval of the Fiscal Year Appropriations Acts.
A preapplication meeting between the FEMA Regional Offices and their respective States usually occurs to discuss the application and draft work plan. Technical assistance is available for application preparation from the FEMA Regional Office. This program is not subject to the provisions of 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.
Appeals may be submitted in writing by the authorized State official to the FEMA Regional Director.
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).
A new application is required for each Federal fiscal year.
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.
