Additional Information on Eligibility:
Statutory Eligibility Requirements, written into the DFC Act, are inherent in the DFC Program. Read Table 1 of this RFA: Statutory Eligibility Requirements, which contains a summary of the Statutory Eligibility Requirements and the minimum documentation applicants must provide to meet the eligibility criteria. The “Where to Document” section in the table shows applicants where to include the required information in their applications (e.g., as an attachment, in the Project Narrative, or in the Budget Narrative). Failure to meet any single eligibility requirement will cause the application to be deemed ineligible, and the application will not move forward to peer review. Should your application fail to meet the eligibility requirements, the person listed as the Business Official on the Application for Federal Assistance will receive a letter stating why the application was deemed ineligible to apply. No additional information may be added to an application after it has been submitted. Final authority lies with the DFC Administrator to determine the eligibility of an application.
All DFC applications will be jointly screened by ONDCP and SAMHSA to determine whether an applicant meets all the DFC Program statutory eligibility requirements identified in Table 1. In addition, the non-profit status of the grantee/legal applicant (if applicable) will be verified along with its ability to fiscally manage federal funds. Applications submitted by eligible coalitions that demonstrate they meet all requirements will then be scored through a peer review process according to the evaluation criteria described in the Application Review Information of this RFA. Each year, DFC grantees must demonstrate compliance with all of the Statutory Eligibility Requirements to be considered for continued funding.
