33 Grantee Question QUESTION: On Pg. 18 of the FOA under “Funding Consideration” how do we know if we qualify when we don’t know what our FY 14 Award is? Priority Funding Provision RESPONSE: We will notify those grantees that are eligible for priority funding in the next few weeks but well ahead of the Part B Supplemental application deadline.
