Special Analysis 10-04
August 17, 2010

FFIS alerts states to competitive grant opportunities through its Competitive Grant Updates. These weekly updates include recent announcements about the availability of funds.

This Special Analysis provides an inventory of all the competitive grants managed by the U.S. departments of Education, Health and Human Services (HHS), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Justice, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for which state and local governments as well as territories are eligible to apply. The information comes from the December 2009 print edition of the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA). It provides the grant name, the CFDA number, and the most recent funding level, which is federal fiscal year 2010 for most grants. The grants are listed from highest to lowest funding levels within each department. The funding levels represent estimated obligations for a given program. A few of these programs include multiple types of assistance, such as a formula and competitive portion.
