Community Development Financial Institutions Fund, Department of the Treasury.
Change of Application Deadline; Change in Eligibility Criteria.
On February 4, 2003, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (the “Fund”) announced in a NOFA for the Technical Assistance Component (incorporating Native American Technical Assistance) of the CDFI Program (68 FR 5735) that the deadline for applications for assistance through the Technical Assistance Component is 5 p.m. ET on May 31, 2004. This notice extends that application deadline to 5 p.m. ET on June 1, 2004, since May 31 is a federal holiday. Under the same NOFA, the Fund announced that it will not consider an application submitted by an applicant that is a previous Fund awardee under any Fund program or component of the CDFI Program if the applicant has failed to meet its reporting requirements. The Fund recently obtained clarification from the Office of Management and Budget that results in an extension of the deadline by which an awardee must provide us with its audited financial statement. As a result of this clarification, this notice revises the current NOFA to state that the Fund will not consider the late submission of audited financial statements an eligibility criterion for the Technical Assistance Component FY 2003 and FY 2004 funding rounds.
Please note that for those prior awardee applicants, lateness in submitting a FY 2003 Annual Financial Report will not make your organization ineligible to apply for funding under this NOFA. However, the Fund will continue to consider applicants ineligible for funding if any other current year reports are overdue as of the funding application deadline. All other information and requirements set forth in the February 4, 2003 NOFA for the Technical Assistance Component shall remain effective, as published.Start Further Info
