Message to FY 2008 GRAA grantees:
Recent changes, as a result of the 2011 budget, have dictated that the GRAA Technical Assistance Conference that was scheduled for June 1-2 in Denver be cancelled.  Although your grant ends June 30, 2011, the 2008 GRAA grantees now have the option to attend the 2011 OSDFS National Conference in Washington, D.C. on August 8 – 10.  You may use plane tickets previously purchased for the GRAA TA Meeting to travel to the OSDFS National conference.  Grants funds may also be used for hotel and per diem.   At the OSDFS National Conference, grantees will be able to participate in workshops and sessions that will enhance their prevention efforts.  Additionally, there will be a session dedicated to assisting 2008 GRAA grants with final reporting requirements and closeout procedures.  Additional information, including registration, can be located on the National Conference Web site at:  www.osdfsnationalconference.com.  
Attendance at the 2011 OSDFS National Conference is optional for 2008 GRAA grantees.  Please contact your grant monitor if you have any questions.


Message to FY 2009/FY2010 GRAA grantees:
