AVA met with OVW this morning and we had a good conversation. There was a suggestion/request from OVW that might be helpful to you.
To date, OVW has received a handful of Implementation Plans, in advance of the due date.
OVW requests that if you have completed your IP and you are in a position to submit it ahead of your STOP Application, please do so!
This IS NOT a requirement but simply something that OVW is encouraging in hopes of avoiding a slower approval process caused by all IP’s and applications arriving at the deadline.
