In each case where an application shall be approved by the Commissioner, he shall notify the applicant in writing of such approval and the conditions imposed on the grant, if any. The applicant shall inform the Commissioner of its acceptance of the grant within 30 days of receipt of the Commissioner's notice of application approval and the grant shall not be effective until receipt of the applicant's acceptance by the Commissioner. Failure to accept the grant within this period will permit the Commissioner to rescind the grant without further notice to the applicant. & 151.11 Revocation of grant,

(a) Any effective grant may be revoked by the Commissioner on any of the following grounds:

(1) Failure of the grantee to commence the approved program or project within a reasonable period of time.

(2) Failure of the grantee, in a noncontinuing type of program or project, to complete the program or project within a reasonable period of time.

(3) Failure of the grantee to use Federal funds for the purposes for which granted.

(4) Failure to comply with any grant requirement or condition or any requirement of State or Federal law.

(b) If an effective grant is revoked pursuant to this part, the Commissioner will pay no further Federal funds to the grantee under that grant and may take whatever steps he deems necessary or desirable to protect the Federal financial Interest. 151.12 Termination of grant.

(a) Any effective grant may be terminated by the Commissioner where he determines that the program or project is no longer susceptible of productive results.

(b) Where action is taken under this section, the Commissioner may authorize the expenditure of Federal funds in such amounts as he may deem necessary for the purposes of terminating the program or project financed by the grant which is being terminated. § 151.13 Grant payment procedures.

Payments of grants will be made from time to time in such amounts as may be

determined by the Commissioner to be needed to reimburse grantees for costs incurred or to be incurred in carrying out of the approved program or project. Such amounts will be determined on the basis of requests for reimbursement submitted by grantees, cost estimates which may have been submitted, and such other information as the Commissioner may request or have available. For payment procedures with regard to construction programs or projects, see § 151.44. § 151.14 Allowable costs.

Allowable costs for any approved program or project shall be determined in accordance with, and governed by, the principles and procedures set forth in Bureau of Budget Circular No. A21 or such other Federal requirements concerning cost determination that may be applicable. & 151.15 Effect of payments.

Neither the approval of any application or administrative budget nor any payment to a grantee shall be deemed to waive the right or duty of the Commissioner to withhold funds by reason of the failure of the grantee to observe, before or after such administrative action, any Federal requirement. & 151.16 Estimates and reports.

An applicant or grantee may be required to submit, in addition to any other requirements of this part, in accordance with procedures established by the Commissioner:

(1) A description of activities to be carried on during the fiscal year;

(2) A statement of estimated total expenditures for activities to be carried on during the fiscal year, and where estimated amounts exceed the amount of available Federal funds, the availability of other funds to pay the non-Federal share of estimated costs;
