Deadlines and process...
Proposal deadlines for selection of job training grant projects are announced in Requests for Initial Proposals and Requests for 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
For job training grants, the range of approval/disapproval time will be approximately ninety days.
This is a competitive grant program. EPA will specify the nature of the pre-application assistance, if any, that will be available to applicants in the Request for Initial Proposals or Request for applications. For information contacts, see Additional Contact Information - FMR Help. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372. Job training pilots are exempt from intergovernmental review. (See EPA's Federal Register Notice November 26, 1986, to exempt hazardous waste training programs from intergovernmental review.)
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.
See 40 CFR 30.63 and 40 CFR Part 31, Subpart F..
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).
EPA may incrementally fund grants and cooperative agreements under this program. Approval of subsequent funding increments is dependent on satisfactory project progress, continued relevance of the project to EPA's priorities and availability of funds.
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.
