Funding

State and federal project proposals may be submitted anytime throughout the year. Department review and evaluation periods are expected to occur in September/October and March/April of each year, or as needed. If the project is not funded in the current selection cycle, it will be considered in the following cycle with no need to resubmit (unless there is a need to update the proposal). If your project is not selected within the current state fiscal year, the proposal will need to be resubmitted for evaluation.
