General Nature and Administration of Appalachian Regional Development Program. The Appalachian Regional Development program is a joint Federal-State partnership for the development of the Appalachian region. Responsibility for the development of plans and programs authorized under the Act is vested in the ARC, composed of the 13 State Governors (who may appoint alternates) and a Federal Co-Chairman. General policies and procedures, and the allocation of Appalachian funds among the various programs and States are established by the ARC. Application for assistance may only be made through a State member of the ARC. The State Alternate's Offices are the coordinators for the Governors for Appalachian investments. Preapplication conferences can determine within a few weeks if the project conforms to the State Appalachian Development Plan. The appropriate local development district director should be the first contact. The State Alternate's Offices will provide guidance on specific problems and technical assistance in the preparation of applications. (See individual Appalachian program descriptions.) This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
There are no appeal procedures as such, project review allows for full and free interchange with applicants.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Generally renewals are not applicable except for administrative expenses, including technical services, of local development districts (23.009).
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
