We encourage all interested parties – especially prospective applicants – to thoroughly read this FAQ document as well as all material on our website and online engagement community before emailing us with a question. DIV receives a large volume of inquiries every day. While we strive to answer as many of them as possible, as quickly as possible, we will deprioritize responding to a question we feel is answered on our website and online community and the many resources we avail on them, in particular the Annual Program Statement (APS).
