receipt by the Department, nor do they mean that your application is 
complete or has met all application requirements. While your 
application may have been successfully validated by Grants.gov, it also 
must be reviewed in accordance with the Department's application 
requirements as specified in the Certification and Agreement and in 
these application instructions. It is your responsibility to ensure 
that your submitted application has met all of the Department's 
requirements. Additionally, we may request that you provide us original
