For all other proposals, it takes between 45 and 180 days to complete the evaluation and award processes, depending upon the complexity of the project.
This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372. A preconstruction environmental assessment is required.
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

Depending upon the size and complexity of the construction project, it often takes several increments of funding assistance to complete the project. The initial award is issued as a new grant, with second and subsequent funding increments issued as renewals to existing grants. Projects remain active until facility completion.
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.
