If the deposit or payment remains unpaid, then District may cancel the application by giving written notice of cancellation to Applicant and it then will cease work on the Application Process. Any Applicant deposit remaining upon cancellation of the application or completion of the Application Process will be refunded without interest to Applicant. The advance of Funds shall not be dependent upon the District’s approval or disapproval of the Applicant(s)’ application, or upon the result of any action, and shall no way influence the application or Project.  Neither Applicant(s) nor any other person providing funding for the Project shall, as a result of such funding, have any expectations as to the results of the Application Process or the selection of an alternative favorable to or benefiting Applicant(s).
