Deadlines and process...


Applications are generally due 60 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register, although this may vary from 30 to 60 days.

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

The time required for the application to be approved or disapproved will be approximately 120 days. Grant awards will be announced during the fourth quarter (September) of the fiscal year.

Preapplication Coordination

When the funds available for ELOA are less than $150 million in any fiscal year, the Administration for Children and Families, Child Care Bureau, will announce the availability of the funds through an announcement in the Federal Register. The Federal Register will detail the application requirements and processes. Application forms as furnished by the Child Care Bureau must be used for this program. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

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.


There is no appeal for the denial of a new grant.

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).


None are anticipated.

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.
