Revisions to HPC, HSMC, HDBR, and CCHPC Board Review Submission Deadlines

This correspondence serves as notice that effective March 30, 2022, the MPC is changing its deadline time for the submission of applications for the above Boards and Commissions to 3 p.m. on the applicable cut-off date. This earlier submission deadline allows our staff to better ensure that a complete application and proper payment have been submitted and can be processed for placement on the applicable Board or Commission agenda.

The failure to submit payment or the filing of an incomplete application on the deadline date and time will delay the placement of your application on the applicable agenda.
