(a) An application for a project grant shall be reviewed by the administering district immediately upon receipt. If the administering district determines that an application is incomplete, the applicant shall be notified within 30 working days with an explanation of what is missing from the application. The date and time of receipt of each application determined to be complete shall be recorded and the completed application shall be evaluated with respect to the appropriate project selection criteria. A district shall make every effort to process an application and grant an award rapidly and to coordinate project approval with any purchase or installation timing constraint on an applicant. Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the administering district may determine that an application is not in good faith, not credible, or not in compliance with this chapter and its objectives.

(b) A participating district may request assistance from the state board on an as-needed basis to clarify project evaluation protocols or to obtain information necessary to properly evaluate an application.

(c) An application for a grant for an infrastructure project shall be reviewed by the commission immediately upon receipt. If the commission determines that an application is incomplete, the applicant shall be notified within five working days with an explanation of what is missing from the application. The date and time of receipt of each application determined to be complete shall be recorded and the completed application shall be evaluated with respect to the appropriate project selection criteria. A complete grant application fulfilling the project selection criteria shall be approved as soon as practicable, but not later than 60 working days after receipt. Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the commission may determine that an application is not in good faith, not credible, or not in compliance with this chapter and its objectives. The commission shall expedite the processing of an application and shall grant an award as rapidly as possible.

(d) Funds shall be awarded in conjunction with the execution of a contract that obligates the state board or a participating district to make the grant and obligates the grantee to take the actions described in the grant application. A contract shall incorporate the recapturing provisions contained in subdivision (c) of Section 44291.

The state board and participating districts shall institute an outreach program to inform potential participants, technology suppliers, vendors, engine and equipment dealers and distributors, fleet owners, industry organizations and publications, districts, and rail and port organizations of the availability of grants, and of the requirements and objectives of the grant program. The state board and district shall vigorously recruit grant applications and publish examples of successful projects. The commission shall work closely with the state board and districts so that infrastructure and technology development projects are closely coordinated with overall program implementation. Outreach efforts on the part of the state board shall be coordinated with district outreach efforts.
