Deadlines and process...
Proposals must be received by the NOAA/NWS no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Savings Time, October 21, 2004.
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
Review of proposals will occur during November and December 2004, and funding should begin during spring 2005 for most approved projects. April 1, 2005, should be used as the proposed start date on proposals, unless otherwise directed by the Program Officer.
No preapplication coordination is required. However, since proposals must demonstrate a level of coordination with the local NOAA/NWS forecast office and/or River Forecast Center, it is strongly recommended that applicants discuss potential interactions with relevant NOAA/NWS personnel prior to submission. This program is excluded from coverage under 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.
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).
Grant period is 12 months for this program. Award of a grant does not preclude the applicant from applying for subsequent grants.
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.
