369-4.1 General application procedures.
(a) A municipality, upon the approval of its governing body, may submit an application to the department, in a form and containing information as the department may require, for State assistance toward the cost of an eligible project. The procedures outlined in this section are only applicable to funding provided pursuant to this Subpart.
(b) All applications received after the effective date of this Part are limited to eligible costs incurred during the previous calendar year.
(c) Department receipt and processing of applications.
(1) A municipality may submit only one application for State assistance for each calendar year for all eligible household hazardous waste collection and disposal costs incurred during the previous calendar year.
(2) Applications will be accepted by the department during the months of January and February of each calendar year for the previous calendar year period. All applications must be postmarked during this two-month period. Applications postmarked after February 28th, or 29th in a leap year, of each calendar year, other than those submitted pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (3) of this subdivision, will not be accepted and will be returned to the applicant.
(3) If an application is determined by the department to be incomplete, the applicant will be notified by the department and the application may be allowed to be revised and resubmitted at the discretion of the department. The department, at its own discretion, will establish a deadline for resubmission of the application but which in no instance will exceed 30 calendar days after notification of deficiencies.
(4) The department is authorized to require any additional information from an applicant as may be necessary to update a project application.
(5) Only applicants who submit complete applications, as determined by the department, will be eligible for State assistance payments.
(6) Acceptance of an application and determination by the department that an application is complete is not to be interpreted as a guarantee or promise of funding from the department.
(7) Complete applications will be evaluated by the department and, if acceptable, will be approved for State assistance of up to 50 percent of eligible costs. If there are insufficient funds to provide 50 percent reimbursement to all applications the department may either lower the percentage or set a dollar maximum on the level of funding to be provided to each municipality. This lowered percentage or dollar maximum will be the same for all municipalities that submit a complete application during the review period.
(d) A project application will be reviewed and may be approved, disapproved or modified by the department consistent with the requirements of this Part.
