N.J. Admin. Code § 7:22-6.13 - Evaluation of application

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Each application shall be subject to:
1. Preliminary administrative review to determine the completeness of the application. The applicant will be notified of the completeness or deficiency of the application;
2. Technical and scientific evaluation to determine the merit and relevance of the project to the Department's objectives and the objectives of the Pinelands Infrastructure Master Plan;
3. Budget evaluation to determine whether proposed project costs are reasonable, applicable, and allowable; and
4. Final administrative evaluation.
(b) Upon the completion of a full review and evaluation of each application, the Department shall either certify the project for funding or make the determination that the awarding of Pinelands Infrastructure Trust funds shall be deferred. An approval by the Department shall only be issued after certification by the Pinelands Commission that the master plan and zoning ordinance of the municipalities and the Master Plan of the county wherein the project is to take place is in conformance with the Comprehensive Management Plan.
(c) The Department shall promptly notify applicants in writing of any deferral action, indicating the reasons for the deferral and a time frame for the resolution of any outstanding issues. A deferral action results in one of the following:
1. An approval of the application if the outstanding issues are addressed to the satisfaction of the Department within the specified time frame; or
2. A disapproval of the application if the outstanding issues are not addressed to the satisfaction of the Department within the specified time frame.
(d) The Department shall promptly notify an applicant of any disapproval. A disapproval of an application will not preclude its reconsideration if resubmitted by the applicant. However, reconsideration of a revised Pinelands application and/or processing of a Pinelands grant or loan agreement for the project within the current fiscal year may be bypassed, precluding funding of the project until a future fiscal year. Affected applicants shall be notified in writing of such action. As a result of a disapproval and project bypass action, the next highest ranked project on the Pinelands Infrastructure Trust Funding List may fall within the fundable range.
