Brief descriptions of the 26 Federal agencies that use the Grants.gov portal to post funding opportunities
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance
The CFDA provides general descriptions of all Federal programs available to State and local governments (including the District of Columbia); federally-recognized Indian tribal governments; Territories (and possessions) of the United States; domestic public, quasi-public, and private profit and nonprofit organizations and institutions; specialized groups; and individuals.
The database can be searched by a variety of parameters.
The assigned CFDA# identifies the program, but may not be not a unique identifier for a specific competition or submission deadline.
Federal Business Opportunities, commonly known as Fed Biz Opps or FBO, is a free web-based portal which allows vendors to review federal procurement opportunities over $25,000. Postings include grant funding opportunities from some agencies, most notably the Dept. of Energy and the Dept. of Defense, including DARPA.
FedBizOpps also may be used by the agency as the portal for submitting letters of intent or pre-applications in response to funding opportunities.
Note: All agencies are required to post notices of competitive grant opportunities in Grants.gov, even if they also are posted elsewhere. A Grants.gov Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) may link back to FedBizOpps to access the full announcement and other related documents.
This site provides links to virtually all Federal branches, departments, executive agencies, and independent agencies, as well at to State and Local government sites.
This site provides information about federal spending on research and development grants and contracts over time, as well as other categories of spending.
