The MPPEP program is brand new and the Agency made assumptions for the emergency information collection. Since the emergency information collection was approved, the application window closed on May 11, 2022, and this revision is being based on the total amount of applications received and the estimated awards from the initial round. The total number of actual applications received exceeded the Agency’s expectations and therefore the revision is showing a significant increase.
