How to apply...
For most projects, the competitive contracting process is used. As topics are determined, requests for proposals are announced in the Commerce Business Daily and subsequently issued in hardcopy and posted on the world wide web at www.doleta.gov.
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.
Procedures for each project are specified in the applicable request for proposals.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
