Detailed Project Description
Project Impacts/Area(s) Effected
For construction projects, a percentage of completion calculations should be included with the SF 270. Payments will not be processed without a current signed quarterly report on file with our agency.
No more than 80% of the total Federal funds obligated to the project will be paid until the project is closed out. Projects with total costs greater that $100,000, the subgrantee will inform the grantee when the project is at or near 50% completion. Periodic or compliance reviews will be conducted by the State at its discretion.
Applications will be ranked based upon the following criteria……..
Cost/ Benefit of the project 40%
Completeness of application 30%
Time frame of project 30%
FOR DISASTER 1521 (SPRING FLOODING)
THE APPROVED IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY THE $452,892 HMGP FUNDS IS AS FOLLOWS……..
Projects (construction activities that would protect from flooding or alleviate flood waters more rapidly) with an approximate Fed share of up to 150K on each project.
(This rational would expend all funds available for 1521)
