Over the last few weeks a review of grant search engine results has shown a disturbing tend. The term “temporarily suspended” has been associated with an increasing number of grant announcements.
We have been preparing our clients for this eventuality for about a year now but the cold realization of the actual “temporarily suspended” notation on notice of funding availability (NOFA) is startling.
This might otherwise by of limited concern if not for a recent letter from a federal agency that stated that a program, for which a client submitted a response to an RFP, was no longer available for loss of funding. In a detailed announcement, the agency stated (paraphrasing) that as stated on page 20, the agency was depending on available funds to to conduct the program and in their absence was cancelling the announcement. They hoped we would apply for future NOFAs.
Nonprofits, community service organizations, non-governmental organizations and others are now faced with limited availability of funds and limited opportunities as federal agencies close programs for lack of funds.
