(6) If the Department fails to receive sufficient funding to allow the Program to operate, the Department shall notify each currently designated Application Assistant that the Program is no longer accepting applications from prospective participants and is terminating the Application Assistant Agreements. If, after sending such notice, the Department receives funding to allow the Program to resume, the Department shall notify each Application Assistant whose designation was cancelled due to lack of funding and shall consider a new application for designation.
