The applicant shall initially pay for the project costs as specified in the project agreement. The applicant shall submit to the Community Development Division a payment request for reimbursement of costs incurred in the completion of the project. In all cases, not more than four payment requests shall be submitted for the life of the project. Upon receipt of a payment request containing the documentation required in the project agreement, the Community Development Division shall audit the payment request documentation to determine the eligibility and propriety of the costs incurred by the applicant.
For projects funded with federal LAWCON funds, if the costs are eligible and properly documented, the Community Development Division shall request reimbursement from NPS of the federal share of the eligible costs represented by the applicant's payment request. Upon receipt of the LAWCON reimbursement for that payment request, the Community Development Division shall issue payment of the federal funds to the applicant.
For projects funded with state grant funds, the Community Development Division shall reimburse the applicant for the eligible costs represented by each payment request, provided that the payment request documentation submitted contains the documentation required in the project agreement.
The final payment shall reflect any cost adjustments due to project changes. The project site shall be subject to an inspection by state and federal personnel. All costs incurred by the applicant may be subject to verification by an independent federal or state audit.
