Excerpted from the "1977 Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance," the document describes federal programs and activities serving the handicapped or people working with or for them. Following initial sections which cover the Office for Handicapped Individuals and its clearinghouse, definitions, instructions for using the directory, and budget information, program descriptions are presented alphabetically by supporting agency and project title and coded for the following categories: formula grants to states; project grants and contracts; direct payments, direct loans, and guaranteed or insured loans; and non-financial assistance. Entries include information on: Office of Management and Budget identification number, program description, uses and use restrictions, types of assistance, eligibility requirements, application procedure, appropriations, program accomplishments, enabling legislation, and information contacts. A third section consists of an index to federal departments and agencies represented in the directory, a subject index, and an applicant eligibility index. Appended are a brief summary of programs not specifically directed toward handicapped individuals, a listing of resources for funding information, a bibliography of publications related to funding, and addresses of state agencies serving handicapped individuals.
