Funding Announcement 2015
2015 funding awards were announced in October 2015. The information below is made available for archive purposes only.
The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for the DVPI Fiscal Year 2015 is now available. This funding opportunity is open to Tribes, Tribal organizations, urban Indian health programs (UIHPs), and federal IHS facilities. Listed below are the FOA and supporting information and documentation to assist in the application process.
For Tribes, Tribal organizations, and UIHPs:
The DVPI FOA for Tribes, Tribal organizations, and UIHPs was announced via the Federal Register on July 8, 2015. If you are a Tribe, Tribal organization, or UIHP, you must apply through this funding announcement.
Notification Regarding the Federal Audit Clearinghouse and Obtaining A-133 Audits
Due to a recent cyberattack on the Federal Audit Clearinghouse, the Clearinghouse will be closed for an investigation period. Potential MSPI and DVPI grantees looking to obtain copies of their A-133 Audits will not be able to obtain them during this time. If needed, the IHS Division of Grants Management (DGM) will waive the audit requirements for the MSPI and DVPI applications during the eligibility check process due to this recent development. It is our hope that the Federal Audit Clearinghouse will be functioning as we move into the award phase so that we can determine if "Special Terms and Conditions" will be needed. If the clearinghouse is not functioning at the time DGM needs to issue awards (the Notice of Award and Terms and Conditions), for those applicants selected for funding, DGM will make adjustments if necessary at a later time when we are able to obtain copies of the A-133 Audit as required.
For IHS Federal Facilities
The DVPI federal program award opportunity was announced via IHS on July 8, 2015. If you are an IHS facility, you must apply through this funding announcement.
