Deadlines and process...
See OVC guidelines for Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program for Terrorism and Mass Violence Crimes published in the Federal Register, Vol. 67, No. 21, Thursday, January 31, 2002). The established time frames for funding are flexible and not intended to prohibit the submission of applications at a different time, if warranted. However, applicants should make every available effort to submit applications within the maximum parameters of the grant (Crisis Response Grant, up to 9 months; Consequence Management Grant, up to 18 months; Criminal Justice Support Grant, up to 36 months.) For the International Terrorism Victim Compensation Program, victims/claimants have up to 3 years from the date a declaration that an act of international terrorism has occurred to submit an application for compensation.
When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will
be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received.
When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.
Range of Approval/Disapproval Time
See OVC guidelines for approval/disapproval time for Antiterrorism and Emergency Reserve funding, published in the Federal Register, Vol. 67, No. 2, Thursday, January 31, 2002. It is OVC's intention to make a funding decision within 5 business days of receipt of a complete application or as soon as practicable. An award determination under the ITVCP shall be made within 120 days of receipt of a complete application and accompanying documentation. This time frame may be extended in cases in which OVC seeks independent consultation regarding documented or future expenses, or for complexity or volume of cases, or for administrative purposes. At the discretion of the Director, priority may be given in processing applications of victims of international terrorism incidents with the earliest ITVCP designation dates. With respect to incidents bearing the same ITVCP designation date, priority may be given to applications relating to expenses associated with the earliest act of international terrorismm occurring outside the Unite States.
The standard application form furnished by the Federal agency in accordance with 28 CFR, Part 66 (Common Rule) must be used for all grants made by OVC. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
Hearing by the Assistant Attorney General, Office of Justice Programs.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
