How to apply...
Announcement of availability of funds is published in the Federal Register. Eligible applicants submit applications by specified deadlines.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Grant applications are reviewed by a panel of non-federal professionals with expertise in the child abuse and neglect field. Final decisions are made by the Commissioner, Administration for Children, Youth and Families (ACYF). Contract proposals are reviewed by a panel of Federal staff.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
