Upcoming Program Participation Deadlines

  • The deadline to approve new NSHP Program reservations is June 1, 2018. The deadline to submit new reservations with a guarantee of review before the approval deadline was April 1, 2018. A high volume of applications were received by the deadline. As provided for in the NSHP Guidebook, applications may be submitted after April 1, 2018, but these applications are not guaranteed review prior to the June 1, 2018, deadline and therefore may not receive approval for participation in NSHP. All funding amounts in approved reservations are final as of June 1, 2018.

  • The payment claim form submittal deadline is August 31, 2021, in order to satisfy the December 31, 2021, statutory payment disbursal deadline, required by SB 83 (2015).
