Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

Application submittal dates are announced on a yearly basis, by Region. Contact the appropriate Regional Office for application deadlines.

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

Decisions on funding of project proposals are usually made no later than 180 days after the receipt of the project proposals. If funding is approved, a Challenge Cost Share Agreement (CCSA) is written between the Service and a cooperator(s) in which there is an equal partnership between the Federal government and the cooperator(s) that produces or provides a tangible product which mutually benefits Service objectives and the public. The Regional Contracting and General Services offices will review all CCSA's for contractual sufficiency. The agreements will be signed by the cooperator(s) and the Regional Director.

Preapplication Coordination

None. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

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

Not applicable.

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

None. However, at the discretion of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a Challenge Cost Share Agreement may be modified.

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.
