FAQ: Question & Answer
What if other organizations submit an application via the Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program (AEAP) for the same event?
AEAP grants are available by OVC invitation only. Shortly after an event, OVC will contact officials in the state or jurisdiction where the incident occurred to discuss the scope of victims’ needs and explain what resources may be available. OVC encourages potential applicants to coordinate victim-related activities with organizations such as state emergency preparedness agencies; state mental health agencies; local chapters of the American Red Cross and United Way; and federal, state, local, and/or tribal law enforcement and prosecutors’ offices.
In most instances, OVC will make only one award for each incident with the grantee assuming overall responsibility for coordination of grant activities with subgrantees.
You are encouraged to view the AEAP solicitation to learn more about eligibility requirements.
