Submission Deadlines

The SBA is pleased to inform you that NEEDs, Major Improvement Projects (MIP) and Three Percent Funding will be available for distribution in 2019.  The exact amount of funding for FY2020 has yet to be determined.  We will inform you of the amount available for distribution for the 2020 fiscal year once this amount is confirmed.

To qualify for NEEDs, MIP and Three Percent Funding, SBA project submission requirements must be followed and all documentation must be in the SBA office or post marked no later than the deadline listed below.  Late submittals will be ineligible for funding consideration by the Authority.  Also, your FY2020 projects submitted must be included in an approved 2010-2020 CEFP.  If you are submitting a project that is not in your currently approved plan, please submit the appropriate CEFP Amendment documentation in a separate cover marked CEFP Amendment, along with your project approval request information.
