October 5, 2012 Notice of Intent forms requested by OEP The purpose of the Notice of Intent form is to allow OEP and TLDA to determine what amount of the formula allocations will be used by LLJs and what amounts will revert back to the State for use in the State’s QECB program. In addition, if an LLJ intends to issue QECB from its formula allocation, OEP requests that the LLJ submit a Project Information form at least two weeks prior to QECB issuance. The primary purpose of the Project Information form is to ensure that the 70/30 public-private use limitation requirement is being followed. It will also be used by OEP and TLDA to record the types of projects selected at the local level.
