In limited circumstances (e.g., when required by statute), the DOC will issue a Federal Register notice, in addition to a notice on www.grants.gov, announcing the availability of Federal funds for each DOC competitive financial assistance program. Unless statute or regulation requires otherwise, such Federal Register notices will contain only the following programspecific information: Summary description of program; deadline date for receipt of applications; addresses for submission of applications; information contacts (including electronic access); the amount of funding available; statutory authority; the applicable Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number(s); eligibility requirements; cost-sharing or matching requirements; Intergovernmental Review requirements; evaluation criteria used by the merit reviewers; selection procedures, including funding priorities/selection factors/policy factors to be applied by the selecting official; and administrative and national policy requirements; and information about how to access the full program notice at www.grants.gov. D. The DOC follows the uniform format for an announcement of Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) for discretionary grants and cooperative agreements established by OMB in a guidance published in the Federal VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:21 Dec 14, 2012 Jkt 229001 Register (see 68 FR 37370 (June 23, 2003) and 68 FR 58146 (October 8, 2003)). FFOs published by DOC are available at www.grants.gov. Applicants are strongly encouraged and in some cases required to apply through www.grants.gov. It can take up to two weeks to register with www.grants.gov if problems are encountered. Registration is required only once. Applicants should consider the time needed to register with www.grants.gov, and should begin the registration process well in advance of the application due date if they have never registered. Applicants should allow themselves adequate time to submit the proposal through www.grants.gov, as the deadline for submission generally cannot be extended and there is significant potential for human or computer error during the electronic submission process. After registering, it may take several days or longer from the initial log-on before a new Grants.gov system user can submit an application. Only authorized individual(s) will be able to submit the application, and the system may need time to process a submitted proposal. Applicants should save and print the proof of submission they receive from Grants.gov, which may take up to two days to receive.
