To initiate the process for awarding grants under the capital assistance program, the commissioner shall publish a notice in the State Register. The notice shall advise eligible applicants of the availability of grant funds, inform eligible applicants of the procedure and projected schedule for the application process, and establish a date by which a preliminary grant application must be received by the commissioner.
Eligible applicants may submit to the commissioner preliminary grant applications containing the information in part 9210.0131. Applications received by the commissioner after the deadline in the State Register notice shall not be considered for funding and shall be returned to the applicants.
After the date established in the State Register notice, the commissioner shall review the preliminary grant applications. Using the criteria in part 9210.0132, the commissioner shall notify each applicant, in writing, as to whether it is invited to submit a final grant application. Only applicants so invited remain eligible for a grant. The commissioner's invitation shall specify a date by which the final grant application must be received by the agency.
Eligible applicants that have been invited to submit a final grant application may submit an application to the agency. Final grant applications must contain the information in part 9210.0140. Final grant applications received by the agency after the deadline in the commissioner's invitation shall not be considered for funding and shall be returned to the applicant.
