Jordan Indian Tribes of Virginia Federal Recognition Act of 2017).
Note: Separate and unique funding is available for tribal applicants, and therefore OVC anticipates that they will not compete with non-tribal applicants due to the availability of that funding (for more information, see Federal Award Information on page 11).
Award recipients from OVCs Fiscal Year 2016 Using Telemedicine Technology to Enhance Access to Sexual Assault Forensic Exams are not eligible to apply, unless the FY 2019 proposal outlines new services, cost items, or service areas that were not included in the FY 2016 application.
Purpose Area 2, Technical Assistance Provider: Applicants are limited to state agencies, public agencies, federally recognized tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for-profit organizations), and institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education).
Applicants must have: (1) demonstrated experience and understanding of telehealth technology, sexual assault victimization, and the many needs of sexual assault victims; (2) the ability to forge partnerships to meet the wide range of assistance that victims need; and (3) the staff resources and capacity to provide technical assistance support to awarded Purpose Area 1 organizations and their stakeholders to successfully implement this project.
For Purpose Areas 1 and 2, all recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.
OVC will consider applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant.
Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees).
The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering the funding and managing the entire project.
Under this solicitation, only one application by any particular applicant entity will be considered.
An entity may, however, be proposed as a subrecipient (subgrantee) in more than one application.
For additional information on subawards, see the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide.
OVC may elect to fund applications submitted under this FY 2019 solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.Full Opportunity Web Address:https://www.ovc.gov/grants/pdftxt/FY19-Using-Telehealth-SANE-Solicitation.pdfContact: Agency Email Description:
