Answer

Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) are encouraged, but not required to illustrate coordination and collaboration.  MOUs that do not exchange funds can be signed for the full five year grant period or on an annual basis.  If you choose to engage in MOUs with partner organizations, they will need to be submitted, reviewed, and approved by your Program Specialist prior to execution and then anytime thereafter if the MOU language is amended. For MOUs executed annually, they should be resubmitted, reviewed, and approved by your Program Specialist annually.  Please refer to the guidance provided in the MOU Review Sheet.

All contracts or other document vehicles that exchange funds must be resubmitted, reviewed, and approved by your Program Specialist annually.  Please refer to the guidance provided in the Contract Review Sheet.
