RFA FAQ’s Wednesday (Oct, 4th 2023)

We were awarded for the 2023-2024 grant period, do we have the option to renew or must we reapply for future funding?

Refer to the 2024-2025 RFA, 4.8 Not Eligible to Apply: Who cannot apply for a grant, paragraph 4.8.6 on page 12.

Our organization is a for-profit organization potentially applying for grant funding under veteran business services. How do we access the TVC Grant Portal?

Refer to the 2024-2025 RFA, 4.8 Not Eligible to Apply: Who cannot apply for a grant, paragraph 4.8.2 on page 12.

RFA FAQ’s Friday (Oct, 6 2023)

Does the VCSO need to be a full-time employee of the county? Can a county employee serve as a grant coordinator?

In order to be a VCSO grant, the VCSO must be the project manager. If another county employee is the project manager, the grant is submitted as a regular grant, not VCSO. So a county employee can be a program manager for a General Assistance, HTX, or VMH grant, it will just not be classified as a VCSO grant.

If we were renewed for the 23-24 cycle, can the 24-25 application be submitted with a lower budget amount?

As long as the organization is not eligible for renewal, the 24-25 grant cycle is a new cycle to submit applications as the agency desires. There is no dependency on the previous grant cycles.

Under Annex B 2024-2025 Grant Program Requirements; Appendix 1 General Assistance Grant Program; Transportation Program & Services, it states Veterans & Surviving Spouses only. Is this a typo or are dependents not eligible for transportation services?

Please refer to the RFA and all appendices to determine eligibility of clients and services available for each grant program.
