Timing of Your Submission

Allow enough time to prepare and submit your application. We recommend that you submit your electronic application 24 to 48 hours before the proposal due date as sometimes heavy traffic to the site can cause technical problems. If any technical problems occur, this extra time should allow you to resolve them and re-submit your application by the due date.

We will reject applications submitted after 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on June 27, 2022

What to Expect After You Submit

After we receive your submission, you will receive two separate email messages about the progress of your application:

  1. The first email is for submission receipt only. It confirms receipt of your proposal by our system. This message does not mean the application has been accepted.
  2. The second email notifies you that your proposal has been approved or denied.
  3. If approved, you will receive notification by July 8th, 2022, and will be contacted by to begin the contracting process within one (1) week of notification (the contracting process can take 4-6 weeks). Work should begin no later than August 8th, 2022.

The APG funds are to be used and invoiced by March 15, 2023. All invoices must be received by March 22, 2023.
