The Full Process
The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) expects to administer at least two rounds of funding per fiscal year.
Each round follows this six-step process to award grants:
- DECD announces funds are available
- Eligible applicants prepare to apply and then complete and submit applications online through this website
- Governor reviews the Board’s recommendations, approves applications, and forwards them to State Bond Commission
- State Bond Commission issues final approval for recommended applications
