CERTS UPDATE: Preview Draft CERTS Grant Application

Today the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Administration’s regulatory overseer, posted a DRAFT of the CERTS grant application – click here. The draft application is currently before OMB awaiting final approval, and the Agency is scheduled to publish a notice about it early next week.

Although this draft is NOT YET officially approved and could be modified to some degree, it does provide insight into what the final approved application will look like when the CERTS grant portal is opened.

As ABA announced earlier this week, the Treasury Department is targeting next week for opening the application portal.
