Deadlines and process...

Deadlines

A complaint must be filed not later than 180 days from the last act of the alleged discrimination, unless the time for filing is waived for good cause. OCR began accepting complaints under the HIPAA Privacy Rule on the compliance date of April 14, 2003. Complaints under the Privacy Rule must be filed within 180 days of the date when the complainant knew, or should have known about, the act or omission complained of occurred, unless the time limit is waived for good cause.

Note: When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received. When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time

Not applicable.

Preapplication Coordination

Contact the Director, Office for Civil Rights. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

Note: This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.

Appeals

None.

Note: In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

Renewals

Note: In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
