Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-10-14
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Administration for Children and Families proposes to revise regulations applying to the Family Violence Prevention and Services Programs. These proposed revisions would update existing rules to reflect statutory changes, would update procedures for soliciting and awarding grants, and would make other changes to increase clarity and reduce potential confusion over statutory and regulatory standards. The proposed revisions would codify standards already used by the program in the Funding Opportunity Announcements and awards, in technical assistance, in reporting requirements, and in sub-regulatory guidance.
