Applicants interested in funding through the BCIB Program must request a pre-application conference with the County. Pre-application conferences must be complete per the published funding round schedule. The required conference is designed to provide potential Applicants with an overview of the Program, application process and eligibility, and assistance with budget development to assure the completeness of the project application for formal submission and review.
During the pre-application conference, the County’s BCIB Program consultants and/or staff will discuss the proposed project with the Applicant, answer BCIB Program questions, and gather additional project details.
An important outcome of the pre-application conference will be the development of the Project Budget for the BCIB Program Application. The County’s engineering consultant will review the project budget and provide confirmation or recommended changes for both the Applicant’s and the County’s consideration and concurrence when processing the application. The mutually concurred Project Budget will serve as the basis for determining the project’s financing need.
To schedule the mandatory pre-application conference, contact Mark Gordon at 724-284-5300 or email Mark Gordon.
