Agency Still Seeking Comments on Solicitation Template

(Comment Deadline: June 8) The Office on Violence Against Women (DOJ) reopens the comment phase to revise its solicitation template, which provides a framework to develop program-specific announcements soliciting applications for funding. The previous deadline was May 4.

The revised template would be used for next fiscal year’s grantmaking. The purpose of the solicitation template is to provide a framework to develop program-specific announcements soliciting applications for funding.

A program solicitation: outlines the specifics of the funding program; describes the requirements for eligibility; instructs an applicant on the necessary components of an application under a specific grant program; and provides registration dates, due dates and instructions on how to apply within the designated application system.

OVW has released the bulk of its FY 2015 solicitations; many still with upcoming deadlines. The array of programs includes: Grants to Encourage Arrest Policies and Enforcement of Protection Orders Program (CFDA Number: 16.590); Grants to Reduce Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking on Campus Program (CFDA Number: 16.525); and the Consolidated Grant Program to Address Children and Youth Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Violence and Engage Men and Boys as Allies (CFDA Number: 16.888).
