David Mandel & Associates is very excited that attending the May 9-10, 2013 Safe and Together™ Model Symposium in New Orleans just became easier for OVW funded grantees. The following is the message from OVW regarding using OVW funding for attending the Symposium:
“Grantees from OVW’s Culturally and Linguistically Specific Services for Victims Program, Safe Havens: Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program and Transitional Housing Grant Program have been conditionally approved to attend this conference. Grantees from the aforementioned programs are required to contact their OVW program specialist to get approval specific to their award and to ensure that a Grant Adjustment Notice (GAN) is issued. A GAN must be completed before grantees expend any funds related to attending this conference.
Grantees from OVW’s Rural Grant Program may be invited to attend this conference and they do not have to contact their program manager for prior approval but must adhere to the following criteria:
Rural Grant Program may send up to 4 participants;
Grantees who are not required to get prior approval to attend this conference should be advised to place a “memo to the file” in their grant records indicating the conference approval code and their adherence to the criteria outlined above.
The conference code for this conference is OVW-2013-MU-003; this code must be used by grantees when requesting approval via a GAN or in their “memo to the file”. This approval and assigned reference number is for this conference only. ”
