The authority and the port must execute a grant contract prior to disbursal of grant funds.
Documentation of project costs incurred by a port must be submitted to the authority prior to disbursal of funds.
Disbursal of grant funds to a port will not exceed one disbursal per month. The final disbursement request will be withheld until the Peer Review Committee reviews and recommends approval of the appropriate grant contract deliverables of the project.
Upon request the port must provide the authority with a copy of documents, studies, reports, and materials developed during the project, including written report on activities or results of the project, or any other information that may reasonably be requested by the authority.
Prior to final disbursement, the Peer Review Committee will review all documents produced as a result of the project. The committee will evaluate and make recommendations to the authority on value of resulting document(s) and how closely the project delivered the outcome anticipated in the application.
Any monies disbursed but not used for an approved project, must be returned to the authority.
