For the 2013 grant round all projects must end no later than June 30, 2014.
Funding decisions will be made in December 2012 or January 2013. In most years projects may commence as early as March. However at times finalization of federal funding has been delayed until June. These dates are important because reimbursable work can not be initiated until federal funding is available and a grant contract is fully executed by officials from the local government and CHS. The NPS prefers that the contract is signed by your mayor or county commission chair. Please note that projects requesting funding for segments of a long-term project are not guaranteed funding for future phases. Each year's grant application will be judged on its merits for the time period of the proposed project.
