Additional Information on Eligibility:Eligible applicants are nonprofit, nongovernmental entities with nationally recognized expertise in the identification and prevention of sexual, physical and emotional abuse in the athletic programs of the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, each national governing body and each Paralympic sports organization. Applicants must have a recognized background investigating allegations of abuse and reporting to law enforcement in order to inform training and prevention activities. Applicants must also have the capacity to develop and implement trainings on the national, statewide and local levels, as well as oversee regular and random audits to ensure the policies and procedures used to identify and prevent abuse are followed correctly. To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process to be eligible for FY 2021 DOJ discretionary grant funding. To become certified, the law enforcement agency must meet two mandatory conditions: 1) the agency’s use of force policies adhere to all applicable federal, state and local laws; and 2) the agency’s use of force policies prohibit chokeholds except in situations where use of deadly force is allowed by law. The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward. For detailed information on this new certification requirement, please visit the Executive Order on Safe Policing for Safe Communities page to access the Principles on Safe Policing and Use of Force, Implementation Fact Sheet and List of Credentialing Bodies. All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee. The SMART Office will consider applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees). For additional information on subawards, see the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide.
