FY 2018 Solicitation Release Plan
The chart below shows the plan for releasing solicitations for fiscal year 2018. The plan is based on grant programs administered by the Office on Violence Against Women in fiscal year 2017 and authorized by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.
NOTE: To make timely funding decisions, solicitations may be released pending a full appropriation. When the fiscal year 2018 appropriations are enacted, a program's solicitation may be cancelled if the program does not receive an appropriation.
Each solicitation contains detailed information regarding eligibility and application requirements. For solicitations that are not yet released, potential applicants can review past solicitations on the Closed Solicitation page to get a basic understanding of the program’s purpose and requirements. Note, however, that solicitation requirements can change from year to year, and closed solicitations should not be used as a template for developing FY 2018 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. To see who has received an award in the past, visit the Awards page.
