Notice; extension of NOFA application deadline.
This notice extends the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) application deadline for funds available under the Rural Veterans Coordination Pilot (RVCP) program. VA published a Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA) in the Federal Register on June 4, 2013 (78 FR 33472) to announce the availability of funds for applications beginning June 4, 2013 through July 19, 2013, 5pm eastern standard time. The NOFA includes funding priorities for those applicants who will assist veterans and their families who are transitioning from military service to civilian life in rural or underserved communities. To allow applicants more time to complete the application process, VA is extending the application deadline to midnight eastern standard time on September 19, 2013.
Applications must be received in accordance with this NOFA no later than midnight eastern standard time on September 19, 2013.
Applications must be uploaded as a complete package into http://www.Grants.gov. Applications may not be sent by fax.
In the interest of fairness to all competing applicants, this deadline of no later than midnight September 19, 2013, is firm as to date and hour, and VA will not consider any application that is received after the deadline.
