will be updating its funding guidelines and will only accept
applications from organizations who had been funded in 2013.
Applicants who have been funded
by vLS/RR in the last two years should download and complete the RENEWAL

renewal application now includes Section II for reporting on

policies, procedures, and guidelines. It is expected that the
