A consortium of CBOs may apply as a single applicant, provided the applicant includes a copy of the consortium agreement that specifies which entity will administer the grant. Current and Former Grantees: Recipients of WANTO Act grant program funds awarded under the FY 2020 FOA are NOT eligible to apply for a FY 2021 WANTO grant. These former grantees will be eligible to apply again in FY 2022. Recipients of funds awarded under previous WANTO Act grant programs outside of those who were awarded funds under the FY 2020 FOA are eligible to apply for this funding opportunity. Former WANTO Act grantees must explain, in their “Statement of Need” (see Section IV.B.3), how their proposed TA activities are materially different from those already performed using funds awarded through a WANTO Act grant program.
