How to apply...
Awards are granted on a competitive basis. All applications must contain standard forms 424 and 424A and all required certifications. The annual Federal Register notice contains all necessary grants application information. Contact Headquarters Office listed below for further information.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The Commissioner, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, will make the final decision on all awards. Selection of applicants will be determined based on the review criteria contained in the Federal Register announcement. Funds are awarded directly to grantees.
