Are you looking for information on Government
programs?

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA)
"identifies and describes specific government
opportunities..."

"Programs in the Catalog provide a wide range of
benefits and services, which have been grouped into
20 basic functional categories, and 176 subcategories
that identify specific areas of interest."

These categories include:

Consumer Protection
Education
Employment
Health
Housing
Income Security and Social Services
Transportation

To view the catalog go to:

http://12.46.245.173/pls/portal30/CATALOG.FIND_ASSISTANCE_PROGRAM_DYN.SHOW

       The page that comes up has two columns.

       The first column, "browse the catalog," gives
       10 ways to browse.

For  example:

         --alphabetically by program title
         --by agency
         --by type of assistance

Selecting, "By Agency," lists the agencies in
                                   alphabetical order.

There will be a number in parenthesis after each
agency name.  The number tells how many programs
from that agency are listed in the catalog.

     For example:    Department of Education (146 programs)

Clicking on Dept. of  Education will bring up a list of the
146 programs.

Clicking on one of the 146 programs listed such as,
 "assistive technology" will bring up a description of
that particular program and information such as:

              authorization,
              objectives,
              types of assistance,
              eligibility,
              etc.
