Additional Information on Eligibility
ASHA welcomes applications from all potential partners whose applications meet the following eligibility criteria. ASHA will not accept applications from individuals. 1. Applications must clearly identify only one USO (the applicant) and only one OSI partner (the applicant's sub-awardee). Applications cannot include more than one USO, or more than one OSI. Applications identifying multiple USOs, or multiple OSIs will be deemed ineligible. In addition, please note the following: a. Each OSI may only submit one proposal under this RFA. In other words, multiple USOs cannot submit separate applications for one OSI. b. One USO application may request funds that benefit multiple organizational units within a single OSI. c. One USO may submit separate applications for multiple OSIs. d. In cases (including certain cases where the OSI conducts activities and is legally registered in the proposed place of performance), the USO and OSI may be the same legal entity. In such cases, the application must clearly state that the USO and OSI are the same legal entity and explain the relationship between the USO and OSI. 2. Per Section 214 of the FAA , OSIs must be founded or sponsored by U.S. citizens. 3. USOs must have a continuing and successful supportive formal relationship with OSIs that has lasted at least two years prior to the date of application. A continuing relationship may include financial and technical support, joint ventures, exchange programs, volunteer placement programs, faculty exchanges, fundraising or other arrangements and may include in-kind contributions. 4. USOs must be active and have no active exclusions or delinquent federal debt in the U.S. Government's System for Award Management (SAM) before submitting an application. USOs must continue to maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all times while an application is under consideration. Applicants must also provide a valid DUNS number in the application. 5. USOs and OSIs must submit independently audited financial statements for a recent operating year from 2016 or later. (See Pages 20-21for a complete discussion of the requirements concerning audits.) 6. The USO and OSI must not discriminate against any beneficiaries in the implementation of the award, including, but not limited to, by withholding, adversely impacting, or denying equitable access to the benefits provided through this award on the basis of any factor not expressly stated in the award. This includes, for example, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, genetic information, marital status, parental status, political affiliation, and veteran's status. However, targeting assistance to certain populations as defined in the Project Description will not be construed as discrimination for purposes of this RFA. Faith-based organizations are eligible on the same basis as any other organization for ASHA funding, consistent with 22 CFR 205.1 and ADS 303.3.28. 7. OSIs must be located outside the United States. 8. OSIs must NOT be under the control or management of a foreign government or any of its agencies including local, regional, or national government. Control or management in this context indicates that a majority of the members of the Board of Directors are government employees or appointees or that the recipient government owns a majority interest in the organization. The receipt of financial or other assistance from a government or government agency or the observance of national educational or medical standards does not indicate the institution is under the control or management of a foreign government. 9. OSIs that are: a. Schools must provide English language instruction or use English as the language of instruction in at least one course. Schools must also provide post-secondary education or secondary education that serve students at the equivalent of a U.S. sixth grade
