Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

Not applicable.

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

From 60 to 120 days.

Preapplication Coordination

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. All preapplication letters must be coordinated fully with appropriate State agencies in keeping with E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs," in a manner that will assure maximum support of the State's strategies for development of its rural areas. The application form as furnished by the Federal agency must be used for this program. An environmental assessment is required and an environmental impact statement may be required for this program. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-102.

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

If an application is denied, the reasons for denial are fully stated. The lender or applicant may individually or jointly request mediation or an appeal hearing by the National Appeals Staff within 30 days provided the request is in writing. The requestor and State Director are notified of the decision by the Hearing Officer.

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

Not applicable.

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.
