For FY22 DFHV has modified the FY21 SchoolConnect Notice of Grant Agreement and Award (NGA) introducing an Option Year #1 continuance for a new fiscal year to manage DFHV’s SchoolConnect transportation services being provided to DC’s Public School’s eligible customers. However, since DFHV and the District of Columbia will be introducing new policies surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, the award letter will be serving both as an award announcement and grant agreement guide to prepare the Grantee for FY22.

This grant is contingent upon the availability of funds and may be subject to the District of Columbia’s fiscal year protocols and any budget adjustments the District of Columbia implements. This FY22 grant agreement comprises of funds allocated in the FY22 budget and are District/local funds expected for this program to succeed.
DFHV will be monitoring and advising on the status of your operational budget.

In particular, DFHV is working closely with the Office of Risk Management, Homeland Security Emergency Management Agency, and the Mayor’s Office COVID-19 Advisory Group as the District of Columbia progresses through the Mayor’s Coronavirus Recovery Plan. Thus, this FY22 NGA Option Year 1 extension may be revised based on future events.
