We’ve continued to visit grants.gov again and again over the course of the last 2 weeks as we await the posting of the Designation Renewal System (DRS) round 6 Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). The January 17th forecasted posting date came and went. Now, as we head into February, what can we expect?
Last week we attended the NHSA Winter Leadership Institute and heard from the Office of Head Start that DRS round 6 is coming soon. The specifics of how soon weren’t shared. But, you may notice that the forecast on grants.gov hasn’t been updated. It still says January 17. Usually the forecast date is updated when there’s a lengthy delay anticipated. Hopefully “soon” is sooner rather than later! Those of you who are expecting to re-compete for your grant as part of DRS round 6 have been waiting quite some time for the FOAs to post.
If your program’s service area is listed as part of DRS please feel free to be in touch to explore how Foundations for Families can be of assistance during your planning and proposal writing process. Our team of expert consultants provides program and fiscal consulting, and comprehensive grant writing and grant coaching services. As always, we work with you to meet the unique needs of your program.
