Submission Deadlines

120 Days Before Funding Conclusion

At least 120 days before your grant, cooperative agreement, or contract ends, you must submit a final draft of each product or publication to OVC for review. Build the 120-day product review deadline into your grant or contract timeline.

  • Experts in the field and others within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) will review and comment on the product during the review period.

  • OVC anticipates returning the draft in 30–90 days, depending on the length and complexity of the document.

  • You should be prepared to incorporate substantive and editorial changes identified through the review into the draft per discussion with your grant monitor.

If you are unable to provide a final draft 120 days before the grant, cooperative agreement, or contract ends, you may request a no-cost extension to the grant or contract period. These extensions are approved on a case-by-case basis, and all requests must contain a substantive reason justifying the delay. If substantive changes to the product are required, no additional funds will be made available.

30 Days Before Funding Conclusion

At least 30 days before your grant ends, you must provide OVC with a final submission package. This package should include all materials required to move forward with publishing.
