    2. By December 15, 2020: Submit the remaining application documents in GrantSolutions as a grant note.

You may submit your program’s continuation application documents as soon as they are completed, even if that’s earlier than the dates noted above.

What Comes Next?


All applications will be screened for adherence to the instructions and submission of all required documents. Applicants that do not submit all required documents in the correct format may be contacted to provide the missing documentation. Grantees may also be notified of missing documents and reports as a Special Grant Condition on their 2021 Notice of Award.


Applications that pass screening will then be reviewed by the Program Officer or their designee. Applications will be reviewed and either approved or approved with restrictions. Continuation Application approval is dependent on:

  1. Compliance with Terms and Conditions outlined in the 2020 Notice of Award
  2. Satisfactory business (fiscal) review
  3. Satisfactory programmatic review, including:
    1. Completeness of information using the correct Project Narrative template.
    2. Documented baseline data from the SOS.
    3. Documented plan for continued work and evaluation in 2021.

Grantees with applications that are approved with restrictions will have Special Grant Condition(s) placed on their 2021 Notice of Award. Special Grant Conditions are notes added onto the Notice of Award that describe missing documentation or revisions needed. Some special grant conditions may also place funding restrictions until certain documents or revisions are submitted and approved.
