2.1 Application Process

Intergovernmental Review

Intergovernmental review is a process described in Executive Order 12372 [PDF - 12 Kb], through which governments at the State and local levels coordinate in the review of proposed Federal financial assistance and direct Federal development.

For those DOJ grant programs that are subject to Executive Order 12372, applicants must access the Intergovernmental Review Single Point of Contact List (“SPOC List”) to find out about and, as applicable, comply with the applicant’s State process under Executive Order 12372. As part of the grant application process, to complete the SF-424, applicants must make the appropriate selection (and provide any required information) in response to the question, “Is Application Subject to Review by State Under Executive Order 12372 Process?”

To determine if a DOJ program is subject to Executive Order 12372, look in the notice of funding opportunity (program solicitation) or program announcement, check the program’s CFDA entry, or contact the DOJ awarding agency.
