Deadlines and process...
Contact the Headquarters Office for application deadline information.
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
Between 60 to 95 days from the deadline date for submission of applications.
As new competitive funding becomes available for this program, preapplication coordination will not be required. However applicants will be encouraged to submit a non-binding letter of intent 30 days before the deadline date. State capacity projects are subject to E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." Applicants should consult the office or officials designated as the single point of contact in their State for more information on the process the State requires in applying for financial assistance, if the State has selected the program for review. Research grant projects applicants in future years will not be subject to 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).
All State disability and health projects were subject to competitive renewal and new awards were made in March 2002 for new project periods to begin on April 1. No new competition for State awards is expected for the next three fiscal years. However, should additional funds become available in the interim, such awards would be publicized through an issued Program Announcement. Competition for new or additional State projects will be based on future appropriations. The current research project grants will conclude their respective project periods during the period in September 2003, and no new Research grants are expected to be announced until fiscal year 2003. The National Limb Loss Information Center, the National Center on Physical Activity and Disability, the National Paralysis Resource Center, and the Limb Loss Epidemiology Research project are expected to be receive noncompeting continuation funding in fiscal year 2002 within their respective project periods.
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.
