The Bidder’s Conference webinar occurred on Wednesday, August 18. Slides for that presentation are available here, and the recording can be viewed here, with the access passcode RFA*2021.

Important correction to an answer given during the Bidder’s Conference:

Q: Would two staff members at 50% RPE be considered? Or does it need to be one 100% person?

A: It is strongly preferred for there to be a single staff member at 100% full time equivalence. Per the Project Budget section on page 31, “All awardees receiving Rape Prevention and Education funds are required to maintain a full-time Prevention Coordinator dedicated at 100% effort (1.0 FTE) to the RPE program throughout the project period. The RPE Program believes that outcomes are of higher quality when one staff member holds the Prevention Coordinator position. Programs may make an argument for dividing the Prevention Coordinator work among two staff people, but supporting arguments should be detailed and strong, and address how using a split staff model will increase the quality of programming. The Prevention Coordinator is expected to carry out a coordination role".

Prospective applicants are encouraged, but not required, to submit a Notice of Intent to by Monday, August 30, 2021.
