Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions will be added throughout the application period. The deadline to submit questions is January 4, 2019.
Is the source of the funding federal?
Yes – this funding comes from a federal grant awarded to Wyoming through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number (CFDA #) for the federal funding is #93.426.
Our organization already offers DPP classes – are we eligible for this funding opportunity?
If your organization is already a CDC-recognized DPP, you are not eligible. Eligible applicants must not currently have a CDC-recognized DPP.
If we are unable to maintain a high retention rate and thus not be qualified to submit for CDC recognition will we have to return the grant funds?
If you are awarded the grant, you will not be required to return grant funds if you are unable to meet CDC data submission requirements.
I just created an account with SAM.gov. May I include an email confirmation of our SAM.gov registration?
Organizations may provide a copy or printout of their “congratulations message” from SAM.gov after registration has been successfully submitted and an email confirming that your registration is in process. Note that new registrations can take an average of 7-10 business days to process in SAM. SAM must send out some information for validation with outside parties before your registration can be activated.. If you notice your registration has had a ‘Submitted’ status for longer than 10 business days, and you have not otherwise been contacted to correct or update information, please contact the Federal Service Desk at 866-606-8220 or https://www.fsd.gov.
Can we purchase a Bluetooth enabled scale?
Organizations are allowed to use funds to purchase minor equipment such as a Bluetooth enabled scale. The grant prohibits organizations from using funds to purchase computers, other technological devices (e.g. iPad), or office equipment other than standard consumable supplies.
