Notify the State CSBG Administrator in your state that your Tribe or Tribal Organization is submitting your CSBG Tribal Plan past the September 1 deadline and need a Letter of State Concurrence regarding late submission. (In accordance with CSBG Action Transmittal 2017-04: Application for FY 2018 Funds for Tribes and Tribal Organizations which states that “After the September 1 deadline, Tribal applications will be accepted only with concurrence from the State (or States) in which the Tribal or Tribal Organization is located.“) Here is a Sample Letter of State Concurrence (in fillable PDF format.)
