Application Procedure:

Parties interested in requesting free conciliation and mediation service may write, phone, or contact in person, headquarters or regional offices. Please see below for contact information. No standard form is used. CRS does not provide grant funds to purchase assistance or to fund community programs.

Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.

Award Procedure:

Assistance is provided by direct response from an appropriate agency official to the applicant in the form of conflict prevention and resolution services. CRS will provide on-site services in major racial or ethnic crisis situations within 24 hours from the time when your community notifies CRS or CRS becomes aware of the crisis. In non-crisis situations, CRS will contact you within three days of when your community notifies CRS or CRS becomes aware of the situation to discuss your request for CRS services.

Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check. Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office, or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
