Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA)

Many of the federal grant programs listed in the Directory of Research Grants originate from the most current CFDA. The CFDA is published every spring and updated each fall. The program number entry for the government grants in this Directory refers to the grant program number in the CFDA.

Federal Register

The Federal Register, the government's "daily newspaper." It is also available from the Superintendent of Documents and lists notices of legal rules and regulations, and application deadlines for new grant programs from federal agencies.
