HCTF understands that extenuating circumstances may occasionally prevent a project from being completed within its original timeline. That is why we give proponents the opportunity to apply for a contract extension if they won’t be able to complete their project by March 31 st . Today, emails went out to all HCTF proponents with active 2015-16 projects, providing detailed information about submitting a contract extension request. Here are some highlights: · The deadline to request a contract extension is February 15 th , 2016 . · If you do not complete your project by March 31st, 2016, and you do not request a contract extension, unspent funds will be re-allocated towards other HCTF project priorities. · Submitting a Contract Extension Request Form does not guarantee that an extension will be granted; only that it will be considered HCTF assembles a special committee to review the requests, so it is important that they are submitted on time. Additional information, along with the Contract Extension Request Form, is available here .
