Funding is intended to support programs and services to create, maintain, and expand sustainable sexual assault services provided by Tribes, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations within Indian country and Alaska Native villages.

The Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program provides funding directly to tribes, tribal consortiums, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations.

Mandatory Program Requirements:

Applicants that receive funding under this program will be required to engage in the following activities:

1. OVW-sponsored training and technical assistance (TA).

2. An OVW-sponsored assessment or program evaluation should one be conducted.

Pre-proposal Conference:

OVW will conduct an optional web-based pre-application information session for entities interested in submitting an application for this program

Participation in a session is optional. Interested applicants who do not participate are still eligible to apply.

The session is tentatively scheduled for:
Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. E.T.

The total number of participants for the session may be limited, and therefore interested participants from the same agency/jurisdiction are expected to participate together. OVW reserves the right to deny multiple registrations from a single agency/jurisdiction to allow as many interested applicants as possible to participate.

To register, contact OVW.TribalAffairs@usdoj.gov or at (202)307-6026. Registration must be received at least one day prior to the start of the session. Participants are not registered until they receive a confirmation email. The webinar will be captioned in English and Spanish.

Interested applicants needing additional language assistance should contact this program’s POC at OVW.TribalAffairs@usdoj.gov or at (202)307-6026 as soon as possible, but no later than December 12, 2019.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (E.T.) on February 12, 2020.

To submit an application, all applicants must obtain a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) Number, and register online with the System for Award Management (SAM) and with Grants.gov. To ensure sufficient time to complete the registration process, applicants must obtain a DUNS Number, and register online with SAM and with Grants.gov immediately, but no later than January 22, 2020.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a non-binding Letter of Intent by January 22, 2020. This letter confirms that the applicant has registered with SAM and Grants.gov. Submitting a Letter of Intent will not obligate a potential applicant to submit an application. Interested applicants who do not submit a Letter of Intent are still eligible to apply.

Notification: OVW anticipates notifying applicants of funding decisions by October 1, 2020.

OVW will consider only one application per organization for the same service area. In addition, if an applicant submits multiple versions of the same application, OVW will review only the most recent system-validated version submitted before the deadline.
