Grantees awarded funding in fiscal year (FY) 2017–2020 under the Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation are not eligible to apply for funding under this solicitation, unless the new proposal outlines new services, cost items, or a distinct geographic scope not included in the FY 2017–2020 application.
To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, as of October 28, 2020, the Attorney General determined that all state, local, and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process to be allocated FY 2021 DOJ discretionary grant funding, as either a recipient or a subrecipient. For detailed information on this new certification requirement, please visit https://cops.usdoj.gov/SafePolicingEO.
All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee. Additionally, nonprofit organizations that hold money in offshore accounts for the purpose of avoiding paying the tax described in 26 U.S.C. § 511(a) are not eligible subrecipients.
