FY 2011 WIC Special Projects Grant - Full and Concept Paper
There are two types of WIC Special Project Grants: Full Grants and Concept Paper Development Grants. This RFA (Application A) is for Full Grants only. A separate RFA (Application B) is available for State agencies planning to submit a proposal for developing a concept paper as a basis for applying for a Full Grant using FY 2011 funds, pending availability of funds. FNS anticipates making up to six Full Grant awards in FY 2011, ranging from $200,000 to $400,000 each, depending on the number and quality of applications received and requested budget amounts. Up to $98,000 in FY 2011 will be used to develop concept papers into Full Grant proposals for submission for the FY 2012 WIC Special Project Grants application cycle, pending availability of funds. Up to four (4) grants of up to $24,500 each will be awarded to State agencies by September 30, 2011. The actual number of concept paper awards will depend on the quality of the application(s), the availability of funds, and how much of the FY 2011 funds are used to fund the FY 2011 WIC Special Project Full Grants.
