FY 2016 Solicitations
FY 2016 Solicitation Release Plan
The chart below reflects the Office on Violence Against Women’s (OVW) anticipated fiscal year (FY) 2016 solicitation release plans and are subject to change. These plans are based on the grant programs administered by OVW in FY 2015 and the programs authorized by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. Final decisions regarding projected release plans will be made once an FY 2016 appropriation has been enacted.
Applicants should review each program’s solicitation for detailed information regarding eligibility and application requirements. If a program’s FY 2016 solicitation has not yet been published, applicants can review the program’s FY 2015 solicitation on the Closed Solicitations page to get a basic understanding of the program’s purpose and requirements. However, please note that solicitation requirements can change from year to year and closed solicitations should not be used as a template when developing FY 2016 proposals. For general information about requirements across OVW’s grant programs, please review the Standard Special Conditions-Grants and Standard Special Conditions-Cooperative Agreements. Once a solicitation has been released, it can be found on Grants.gov or on the Open Solicitations page.
