Download as PDF 37078 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 125 / Thursday, June 29, 2006 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES made during this initial budget period and all grant funds are not obligated within the specified period, these grants may be extended for up to six months. The dollar range of awards is as follows: —Up to $65,000 over a period of up to 18 months for company/plant committees or single department public sector applicants; —Up to $125,000 per 18-month period for area, industry, and multidepartment public sector committee applicants. Additionally, FMCS reserves the right under special conditions to award supplemental (continuation) grants subject to funds availability. If awarded the additional amount is added to the current grant amount. Applicants are reminded that these figures represent maximum Federal funds only. If total costs to accomplish the objectives of the application exceed the maximum allowable Federal funding level and its required grantee match, applicants may supplement these funds through voluntary contributions from other sources. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to consult with their local or regional FMCS field office to determine what kinds of training may be available at no cost before budgeting for such training in their applications. A list of our field leadership team and their phone numbers may be obtained from the FMCS web site (http://www.fmcs.gov) under ‘‘Who We Are.’’ F. Cash Match Requirements and Cost Allowability All applicants must provide at least 10 percent of the total allowable project costs in cash. Matching funds may come from state or local government sources or private sector contributions, but may generally not include other Federal funds. Funds generated by grantsupported efforts are considered ‘‘project income,’’ and may not be used for matching purposes. It is the policy of this program to reject all requests for indirect or overhead costs as well as ‘‘in-kind’’ match contributions. In addition, grant funds must not be used to supplant private or local/state government funds currently spent for committee purposes. Funding requests from existing committees should focus entirely on the costs associated with the expansion efforts. Also, under no circumstances may business or labor officials participating on a labor-management committee be compensated out of grant funds for time spent at committee meetings or time spent in committee training sessions. Applicants generally VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:03 Jun 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 will not be allowed to claim all or a portion of existing full-time staff as an expense or match contribution. For a more complete discussion of cost allowability, applicants are encouraged to consult the FY2006 FMCS Financial and Administrative Grants Manual, which will be included in the application kit. G. Application Submission and Review Process The Application for Federal Assistance (SF–424) form must be signed by both a labor and management representative. In lieu of signing the SF– 424 form, representatives may type their name, title, and organization on plain bond paper with a signature line signed and dated, in accordance with block 18 of the SF–424 form. The individual listed as contact person in block 6 on the application form will generally be the only person with whom FMCS will communicate during the application review process. Please be sure that person is available once the application has been submitted. Additionally, it is the applicant’s responsibility to notify FMCS in writing of any changes (e.g. if the address or contact person has changed). We will accept applications beginning August 1, 2006, and continue to do so until July 31, 2007, or until all FY 2006 grant funds are obligated. Awards will be made by September 30, 2007. Proposals may be accepted at any time between August 1, 2006 and July 31, 2007, but proposals received late in the cycle have a greater risk of not being funded due to unavailability of funds. Once your application has been received and acknowledged by FMCS, no applications or supplementary materials will be accepted thereafter. Applicants are highly advised to contact the grants director prior to committing any resources to the preparation of a proposal. An original application containing numbered pages, plus three copies, should be addressed to the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, Labor-Management Grants Program, 2100 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20427. FMCS will not consider videotaped submissions or video attachments to submissions. FMCS will confirm receipt of all applications within 10 days thereof.

The Director or their designee will finalize the scoring and selection process. All FY 2006 grant applicants will be PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notified of results and all grant awards will be made by September 30, 2007.
