How long does it take to be notified about whether you’ve been accepted as a finalist? Can you address the feedback and resubmit?

The time needed to test the entries, write up official responses, and address questions raised by the submissions, such as the recent rule clarification around “jobs services,” varies depending on the individual submission.  On average, we’re finding that it takes a few days between when we receive a submission and when we turn around feedback on the app.

Applicants can resubmit their app if it is not accepted and they would like to make improvements that overcome the deficiencies we identify in our feedback.  We talk a little more about that process here [http://reachthehomeless.challenge.gov/updates/232], but the big takeaway is that the date/time stamping  of your resubmission is used to determine whether your app is eligible to be a Finalist.
