All applications submitted will receive a preliminary score unless otherwise noted. New programs will receive their preliminary score after staff review.. The preliminary scores will be sent to the primary contact and program director as provided in the application.

Applications submitted between August 2, 2021 and September 17, 2021 will receive one initial review by PHC staff within a week of submission to verify completeness and accuracy of documents. Only applications that are incomplete/erroneous will be reopened for editing. If staff determine that edits are necessary, the applicant will have three business days to make edits from the time of notification of required edits. If required edits are not made within three business days of notification, the application will be considered final. Abuse of any administrative permissions will not be tolerated and may lead to disqualification.

After this initial staff review and resubmission, all applications will be considered final, and no supplemental information or changes can be made to the application. You may save the application and continue to fill out the online application throughout the open application period. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
