The 2013-2014 VOCA/SVAA grant application is now available to new, existing, and expanding programs. This year, due to time constraints, we are releasing the grant application without knowledge of what Ohio’s federal VOCA allocation is. In so much as we don’t know what Ohio’s allocation is, we cannot assign individual allocations to programs with 100% certainty. What we will ask is that each program that received funding during the 2012-2013 funding cycle request the same amount of funding that they received during this grant period. This amount can be confirmed by reviewing your Grant Award and Acceptance cover sheet. The VOCA and SVAA awards are both located on this form. Additionally, the grant application process was planned to be done solely online this year. Unfortunately, our online grant management system is not complete. This is out of the direct control of our office and cannot be avoided at this time. As a result, all submissions will be completed by paper application. Completed applications must be received by our office before 5:00pm July 12, 2013. There will not be a late submission penalty. Late or incomplete applications simply will not be processed.
Please note: submissions for Northeast Ohio will be sent directly to the Youngstown office this year. The deadline remains 5:00 pm on July 12, 2013.
Thank you for the important work that you and your team do. If you have any questions or concerns during the grant application process, please contact your grant specialist. Thank you in advance for your patience and trust that we are sharing your concerns regarding the process this year.
