October 21, 2010
Health centers proposed the following types of CD projects
Alteration/renovation: includes work required to modernize, improve, and/or change the interior arrangements or other physical characteristics of an existing facility or install equipment. This type of project does not increase square footage of the existing structure.
Construction (new site or expansion of existing site): includes—(i) adding a new structure to an existing site that increases the total square footage of the facility; and (ii) permanently affixing structure (e.g., modular units, prefabricated buildings) to real property (i.e., land).
Lease Agreement Or Deed is needed:
For all Construction and A/R/R over $500K (total project cost less equipment)
Provide a Statement of Agreement from the facility owner.
What to include:
Approval of the scope of the CD project.
Agreement to provide the applicant with reasonable control of the project site.
Agreement to file an NFI in the land records of the local jurisdiction before the project begins.
Please note—for projects that are A/R/R and $500K or less:
The applicant must certify that the existing lease gives the applicant reasonable control of the project site;
Is consistent with the scope of the CD project; and
Is in compliance with all terms and conditions affecting the Federal interest.
Definition of “reasonable control” for the purpose of the CD grant

Describe the impact of the extension on the overall construction timeline
