How to apply...
Application package should be prepared in accordance with instructions in a specific Request for Application (RFA) and sent to the grant officer identified in the RFA.
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.
A Grant Review Technical Panel objectively reviews all complete and timely applications according to established review criteria provided in the Request for Applications and makes recommendations to Agency officials, who make final award decisions.
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.
