As many more requests are received than can be funded, not all submitted requests will be approved, and some requests may be approved for a dollar amount less than what is requested. Do not assume that a request has been approved. Requestors will receive an email notification of approval or denial directly from the funding request system. All approved requests are subject to the execution of an appropriate contract before funds will be made available.
