Pre-proposal Conference:

OVW will conduct two optional web-based pre-application information sessions for entities interested in submitting an application for this program. During these sessions, OVW staff will review this program’s requirements, review the solicitation, and allow for a brief question and answer period. These sessions are tentatively scheduled for:

1. January 7, 2020 at 1:00 PM ET.
2. January 9, 2020 at 1:00 PM ET.

The total number of participants for each session may be limited, and therefore interested participants from the same agency/jurisdiction are expected to participate together. OVW reserves the right to deny multiple registrations from a single agency/jurisdiction to allow as many interested applicants as possible to participate.

Participation in a pre-application information session is optional. Interested applicants that do not participate in a session are still eligible to apply.

To register, contact the Transitional Housing Program. Registration must be received at least two days prior to the start of the first session.

Pre-Application Information:

To submit an application, all applicants must obtain a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number and register online with the System for Award Management (SAM) and with Grants.gov. To ensure sufficient time to complete the registration process, applicants must obtain a DUNS number and register online with SAM and with Grants.gov immediately, but no later than January 22, 2020.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a non-binding Letter of Intent by January 22, 2020. This letter confirms that the applicant has registered with SAM and Grants.gov. Submitting a Letter of Intent will not obligate a potential applicant to submit an application. Interested applicants who do not submit a Letter of Intent are still eligible to apply.

Applications are due by 11:59 PM Eastern Time (ET) on February 6, 2020.

OVW anticipates notifying applicants of funding decisions by October 1, 2020.
