Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

State estimates must be submitted 60 days prior to the period of the estimate.

Note: 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

State Plans and amendments submitted as new State Plans, and Plan amendments may require up to 90 days for approval.

Preapplication Coordination

State officials prepare and review state plans and amendments. Regional Office staff are available for consultation or assistance in preparation of State plans and amendments. The standard application forms, as furnished by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and required by OMB Circular No. A-102, must be used for this program. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the office or official designated as the single point of contact in his or her State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review. High level State officials review State Plans and amendments before they are submitted. Regional ACF Office staff are available for consultation or assistance in preparation of State plans and amendments. The standard application forms, as furnished by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and required by OMB Circular No. A-102, must be used for this program. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the office or official designated as the single point of contact in his or her State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review.

Note: 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.

Appeals

The State may request reconsideration of plan disapproval or plan amendment disapproval within 60 days after that disapproval.

Note: 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).

Renewals

Once approved, State IV-D plans remain in effect until amended or revised.

Note: 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.
