Technical assistance is available at the regional level to assist States in meeting conditions specified in the Act. The five-year State plan application and approval process under CAPTA is consolidated with comprehensive Child and Family Services Plan under Title IV-B of the Social Security Act. The State plan may be submitted in a format best suited to a State's need and must be accompanied by the information, certifications, assurances, and documentation required by the annual program instruction. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs" for State plan consolidation and simplification only. The review and comment provisions do not apply. The application process is governed by the requirements of 45 CFR 74 and 92.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
There is no appeal authority for these grants.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Grants are made annually. States submit a five-year plan and annual updates are required each year.
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
