Deadlines and process...
Applications for FY 2003 PDM/DRU competitive grants must be submitted to the Director of the applicant's respective FEMA Regional Office by the deadline published for submission of applications.
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
Whenever possible, within 60 days of receipt of the application, the Regional Director will approve or deny the sub-grant activities in writing, to allow the grantee to process the approved sub-grant awards.
FEMA will allocate the PDM funds annually to each FEMA Region for distribution among the States. FEMA will notify eligible States of the expected funding amounts prior to the beginning of each fiscal year. Local governments should consult the official designated point of contact in their State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance. 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).
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.
