|By . . .||BIA will . . .|
|(1) January 31||Notify all applicants and Regions in writing of acceptance of applications.|

|(3) April 15||Notify all accepted applicants of the projects included on the FPL.|
|(4) May 15||Distribute funds to BIA Regions or in accordance with procedures of the Office of Self-Governance for selected IRRHPP.|
