The due dates for the Fiscal Year 2013 Assets for Independence (AFI) applications have been revised to:
- March 25, 2013
- May 24, 2013
The January 25, 2013 application due date has been removed. Applicants who were planning to submit proposals in early 2013 are still strongly encouraged to do so.
As always, applications for AFI funding can be submitted any time through grants.gov. Due dates for applications refer to the last day that an application may be received for consideration under the next scheduled review.
Modified Funding Opportunity Announcement
A modified Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) was released on December 5, 2012. Changes in the new FOA include:
- Revised point structure
- Explicit request to demonstrate experience with allowable asset categories
- Modest revisions to the evaluation criteria
More detail on the modifications and the new FOA are available at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/grants/open/foa/view/HHS-2011-ACF-OCS-EI-0137. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the modified FOA to ensure their application is responsive to the evaluation criteria. The estimated total funding and expected number of awards for 2013 has not changed.
