The awarding process from application due date takes about 4 months. Please note that this is a rough estimate.
DIR sends the ranking list and summary reviews for each application to the MCHB program. Based on the available funds and the ranking list, the program office makes a recommendation to the Director of MCHB regarding which applications should be funded.
Once approved by the Director of MCHB and processed by Grants Management, all of the applicants are informed about the status of their application.
Applicants receive a letter that indicates whether or not the application has been funded, and provides a summary of the review panel comments on their application.
If the project has been funded, the letter also includes a notice of grant award (NGA). The notice of grant award might include conditions and recommendations.
In order to receive funding, the applicant must respond to any conditions placed upon their grant award. For example, the applicant may need to submit a revised budget or clarify something presented in their application.
