Notice of Solicitation of Applications for the Community Facilities Technical Assistance and Training Grant for Fiscal Year 2017
This Notice announces that the Rural Housing Service (Agency) is accepting Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 applications for the Community Facilities Technical Assistance and Training (TAT) Grant program. This Notice is being issued prior to enactment of a full year appropriation act for FY 2017. Once funding for TAT has been appropriated, the Agency will publish the program funding level on the Rural Development Web site (https://www.rd.usda.gov/programs-services/community-faciliti es- technical-assistance-and-training-grant). Enactment of additional continuing resolutions or an appropriations act may affect the availability or level of funding for this program. The purpose of announcing the TAT program prior to the enactment of full year appropriations is to provide applicants sufficient time to prepare and submit their applications in response to this solicitation and to provide the Agency time to process applications within FY 2017. Grant funds not obligated by September 15 of this fiscal year will be used to fund Essential Community Facilities grant, loan, and/or loan guarantee programs.
