Phase 4: MCHB/HRSA Funds Application
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.
