Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance

In 1977 Congress passed the Federal Program Information Act. This Act established a comprehensive and centralized foundation for the annual publication of Federal domestic assistance programs. The General Services Administration (GSA) maintains the federal assistance information data base from which the CFDA is published.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance is a government-wide compendium of Federal programs, projects, services, and activities which provide assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial and nonfinancial assistance programs administered by the departments and establishments of the Federal government.

The primary purpose of the Catalog is to assist potential applicants in identifying programs which meet their specific objectives and to provide general information on Federal assistance programs. The following pages provide a listing of EPA's current programs followed by examples of program descriptions from the Office of Air and Radiation and the Office of Water.

The CFDA website always contains the most current published information. The website address is: http://www.cfda.gov Exit Disclaimer
