An application under paragraph (1) shall be considered approved, in whole or in part, by the State not later than 45 days after such application is first received unless the State informs the applicant in writing of specific reasons for disapproval.
The State shall not disapprove any application submitted to the State without first affording the applicant reasonable notice and an opportunity for reconsideration.
If an application under paragraph (1) is approved, the local entity is eligible to receive funds under this subchapter.
