For help in determining if your agency is eligible, please contact CAPSAW staff via email. New applicants are encouraged to contact CAPSAW before applying.

Completion of Results Oriented Management and Accountability, or ROMA, training is highly encouraged and will be helpful for applicants particularly as they complete the Logic Model(s). Agencies are not required to complete ROMA prior to applying, however, grantees are expected to maintain a minimum of one ROMA trained staff member. CAPSAW will offer ROMA training each year at little to no cost to attendees.

This is a reimbursement-based grant, meaning that approved funds will be provided to contracted agencies after expenses have been incurred. Typical quarterly reimbursement amounts represent ¼ of the total annual contract, however, amounts may fluctuate in some situations as allowed by CAPSAW policies and procedures.

There is no match requirement; however, CAPSAW funds cannot be used as a match for other federal grants.
