Type of Competition

  1. Full – The entirety of all applications will be subject to a competitive review process in which applications will be rated against the criteria identified in the solicitation.
  2. Partial – Some applications or some parts of applications may not be subject to competition. (Due to expected limited funding, the FY 2014 Justice for Families Program will compete only those components of proposals that represent an expansion from their previous funded project.)
  3. Non-Competitive – In FY 2014 applications will be accepted by invitation only.   All previous grants were subjected to competition.  While FY 2014 applications will not go through a competitive peer review, they will be subjected to a programmatic review which includes a review of each proposal to ensure statutory compliance and an assessment of the applicants past performance. 

Type of Eligible Applicants

  1. New Only – Proposals will only be accepted from applicants that have never received an award or that have not received an award for a certain number of years, as defined by the solicitation.
  2. Continuation Only – Proposals will only be accepted from applicants that have an open/active award or an award that has closed within a certain time frame (typically the last 12 months).
  3. New and Continuation, with restrictions – Proposals will be accepted from both new and continuation applicants; however, there will be some limitation explained in the solicitation.  In such a scenario, most often new applicants are restricted to focusing on a particular subject area to ensure that the program meets a statutory requirement.    
  4. New and Continuation, with no restrictions  -  Applications will be accepted from both new and continuation applicants that meet the statutory eligibility requirements.
  5. Note:  for the Culturally Specific Services Program and Sexual Assault Services – Culturally Specific Services Program the only change from FY 2013 is a statutory change which limits eligibility.
