Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

For formula grants, action plans associated with the Consolidated Plan must be submitted based on the grantee's program year, but no earlier than November 15 or no later than August 16 of the fiscal year for which the funds are allocated.

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

Generally within 45 days.

Preapplication Coordination

A grantee is required to prepare a consolidated plan in accordance with the requirements of Part 91; have and follow a detailed citizen participation plan; provide information to citizens on the amount of CDBG funds available and the range of community development and housing activities that may be undertaken; hold public hearings; publish a proposed action plan which includes a description of activities in sufficient detail, including location, to afford affected citizens an opportunity to submit views and comments prior to the preparation of a final action plan; prepare and submit a final action plan to HUD. This program is covered under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." Recipients should consult the office or the official designated as the single point of contact in its respective State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed when funds are used for the planning or the construction (reconstruction or rehabilitation) of water or sewer facilities.

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

Administrative appeals process followed if entitlement grant funds are withheld or reduced, or repayment proposed for non- compliance or non-performance.

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

Every 3 to 5 years, localities submit a Consolidated Plan. Each year localities submit an annual action plan and certifications.

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.
