Notification / Appeal Process

 

Upon filing a Back to Business application the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission staff will review the application. The applicant will be notified as to the status of the application and if additional documentation is required to determine eligibility of the reimbursement request. Once all documentation has been received the request for reimbursement will be processed. If it is determined that any or all of the requested items for reimbursement are not eligible for reimbursement the applicant may request an appeal of the the ineligible items by contacting the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission who will work with the Chief Administrative Officer of the locality where the business is located for a final determination of eligibility of the reimbursement request. All appeals will be processed locally within 30 days, subject to available fund balance. Requests for final appeal reimbursement must be received by November 15, 2020 to ensure payment processing and remittance by December 30, 2020.
