The Ursula Forem Domestic Violence Program

Employment Fellowship

RFP Questions

#1.  An OCFS licensed daycare and school-aged program that is not a domestic violence service provider “per se” asked if they’d be eligible to apply for the grant.

Section V Eligible Applicants clearly states that applicants must be domestic violence service providers and must be licensed and/or approved by NYS Office of Children and Family Services.  Thus, an OCFS licensed daycare and school-aged program would not be eligible to apply.

#2.  Are we (a current Ursula Fellowship Grantee) eligible to apply for the same position?

“Pursuant to page 5 of the RFP, “Section V. Eligible Applicants” reads that, “current programs already awarded an Ursula Forem Domestic Violence Program Employment Fellowship are not eligible for a second award.” Therefore, programs that already receive funding for an Ursula Forem DV Program Employment Fellowship are ineligible to receive funding in this grant cycle.
