Eligibility Categories


There are two categories of funding available through this solicitation. Category 1: Tribal Sites. Eligible applicants are limited to federally recognized Indian tribal governments, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior. Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance. Eligible applicants are limited to nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for-profit organizations) and institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education). Recipient organizations must agree to forgo any profit or management fee should they receive an award. For Category 2, OJJDP welcomes applications that involve two or more entities that will carry out the funded federal award activities; however, one eligible entity must be the lead applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipient(s). The lead applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire program. Note that the entity designated as the applicant or lead must be eligible, as described in the prior paragraph. Collaborating entities, including nontribal organizations, may be proposed as subrecipients. Only one application per lead applicant will be considered; however, a subrecipient may be part of multiple proposals. OJJDP may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations. OJJDP may also elect to provide supplemental funding to successful applicants in both categories, dependent on performance, intended use of funds, and the availability of appropriations.
