How long does it take to be reimbursed?

Once you have submitted all invoices and proof of payment to the Downtown Odessa, Inc. (DOI) offices, the information is compiled and sent for a review for compliance with all contract terms. The information is reviewed (check that all necessary permits were applied for and executed, a final inspection was conducted, the final work represents the proposed work, the grant amount requested versus the amount actually spent is correct, etc.), compared to the contract executed with the applicant, and then, upon completion of the review, sent to the City Manager's Office for approval, then onto the City’s Finance Department, who will issue the reimbursement check. This process may take up to 4 weeks.
