You can review each program's solicitation for detailed information about eligibility and application requirements. For programs that were offered last year, you can also review a program's solicitation on the OVW Closed Solicitation page to get a basic understanding of the program's purpose and requirements. Please note that solicitation requirements can change from year to year, so closed solicitations should not be used as a template when developing a proposal for 2024.

Once an FY 2024 solicitation has been released, it can be found on or on the OVW Open Solicitations Page.
