WASHINGTON - Looking for federal grants or loans for flood control, food and nutrition programs, education and training, or small business development? How about help for community development programs, childcare, or mental health research?
The U.S. General Services Administration's Office of Governmentwide Policy has made it easier to access the most recent and accurate information on Federal assistance programs with its new world wide web version of the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance at http://www.cfda.gov. The website contains information from the 1999 Update to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance published in December 1999.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance website also features a guide to writing grant proposals, a list of Federal agencies providing assistance programs with links to agency web sites, and an introduction to the Catalog and types of assistance available from the Federal Government.
The Catalog's database contains information submitted by 57 Federal departments and agencies on over 1,400 Federal programs. These programs include grants, loans, loan guarantees, scholarships, mortgage loans, insurance, and other forms of assistance, both financial and non-financial.
For additional information about the new website, contact Bill Erwin at (202) 40l-8944.
