FY24 AHFP Award Administration Information

A. Award Notices, Anticipated Announcement and Award Dates

CAH will notify applicants of the results of their application and the applicable award disbursement process on or shortly after October 1, 2023, via (1) letter of intention to award, (2) letter of ineligibility, or (3) letter of denial. These notifications will be sent via the applicant’s email as it appears in the CAH Grants Portal.

For award recipients, the date of CAH grant award payment disbursement(s) is subject to the availability of funds and the processing of required documentation. CAH staff will advise grant award recipients on the payment disbursement process on or after October 1, 2023. More details may be found on CAH’s website at Managing Grant Awards. CAH reserves the right to rescind any grant award for non-compliance with CAH policies, regulations, and RFA guidelines at any time. Grant recipients with unmet reporting obligations regarding any CAH funding program are ineligible to receive additional awards from CAH.

B. Programmatic, Administrative and National Policy Requirements

Grant award funds must be spent within CAH’s Fiscal Year 2024, October 1, 2023, to September 30, 2024. Federal and District of Columbia law require all grant applicants to comply with all applicable laws and regulations that regard non-discrimination. The list of those laws and regulations include: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (which provides that grant recipients must take adequate steps to ensure that people with limited English proficiency receive the language assistance necessary to afford them meaningful access to grant-related programs, activities and services); Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (P.L. 88-352) (which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin); Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended (20 U.S.C. Sections 1681-1686) (which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex); Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. Section 794); the DC Human Rights Act of 1977; and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. §§12101 - 12213) (which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disabilities). If there are any conflicts between the terms and conditions of the RFA and any applicable federal or local law or regulation, or any ambiguity related thereto, then the provisions of the applicable law or regulation shall control, and it shall be the responsibility of the applicant to ensure compliance.

All grant recipients are subject to risk assessments and monitoring requirements. Those practices are discussed in greater detail in the applicants’ grant agreements with CAH. Activities funded by CAH will be monitored and evaluated by its staff, to assure compliance with all applicable District of Columbia’s statutes, regulations, orders and other requirements. This monitoring process may include site visits, an evaluation of allowable costs, as assessment of efforts to meet projected grant applicant benchmarks, providing proof of expenditures, etc. Additionally, grantees agree to include a CAH logo and a credit line in all grant-related announcements and promotional materials and that it will make its best efforts to publicly credit CAH’s support in all related public events.

C. Reporting

Each grantee is required to submit a Final Report regarding: (1) the extent to which they advanced their artistry, humanities work, and profession throughout the fiscal year, and (2) details regarding artistic and humanities-focused activities and engagement with communities within the District of Columbia. Grantees must submit a Final Report by Friday, October 25, 2024 or will be ineligible to receive future funding from CAH.

D. Payment

CAH has the right to withhold, reduce or rescind a grant award according to the terms and provisions of the grant agreement or if the grantee (1) fails to meet deadlines for grant reports, (2) refuses to provide access for monitoring; and/or, (3) fails to comply with the terms of the grant award contract requirements. Once the grantee has submitted the required post-award paperwork, a purchase order will be created. At that time, the grantee’s grant manager will notify the grantee and solicit an invoice from them for payment. Grantees may elect to either receive a paper check, mailed to their address on file, or to enroll in a direct deposit option (ACH) by registering through the District’s Integrated Financial System (DIFS).
