Q:  Can I access a previously declined grant application?

A: No, you will need to submit a new application.

Q: Is there a projected total number of awards anticipated or an anticipated number of awards for each RFA?

A:  Please review the RFA and the Budget Instructions document to learn what the AOA will and will not fund.

Q:  What are the organization’s or institution's responsibilities?

A:  This information can be found in the General Guidelines. These guidelines are updated periodically, so it is highly recommended that they are regularly reviewed.
