After You Apply
Applicants should submit one single application, to include separate sections for each Category to which the applicant is applying. If the applicant is requesting more than one category of funding, the application must include complete, stand-alone sections (e.g. project abstract, narrative, budget and budget justification) for each requested funding category (A, B, and C) so that each request for a funding category can be identified and provided to the respective review panel. Each section and appendix of the application submitted to Grants.gov should clearly identify the category of funding for which it is submitted. Applicants may label each file with the state abbreviation and the category of funding (e.g., AL for Alabama, HPPHD for HIV Prevention Programs for Health Departments, ETP for Expanded HIV Testing Program, and DP for Demonstration Project). Each detailed budget and narrative justification should support the activities for the first year of funding in response to this FOA and a summary narrative for the entire project period.
Applications will be reviewed for completeness. Incomplete applications and applications that are non-responsive to the eligibility criteria will not advance through the review process. Applicants will be notified if the application did not meet submission requirements. All eligible and technically acceptable applications will be funded for Category A. For Categories B and C, all applications deemed eligible and technically acceptable by the review panel will be funded in order of score and rank, availability of funds, geographic diversity, and relevance to DHAP program priorities.
Successful applicants will receive a Notice of Award (NoA) from the CDC Procurement and Grants Office. The NoA shall be the only binding, authorizing document between the recipient and CDC. The NoA will be signed by an authorized Grants Management Officer and emailed to the program director, and a hard copy mailed to the recipient fiscal officer identified in the application.
Any application awarded in response to this FOA will be subject to the DUNS, CCR Registration and Transparency Act requirements.
