Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of the Chief Financial and Chief Information Officer.
This booklet is intended for readers who are interested in applying to the U. S. Department of Education for discretionary grants and cooperative agreements, who have received an award, or who are simply interested in knowing more about the Department's discretionary-grants process. It describes how discretionary grants and cooperative-agreement programs are created by Congress and administered by the Department and how the public goes about applying for and receiving discretionary grants. It outlines how the discretionary grant program is set up, and it explains how to learn about eligibility requirements. Instructions explain how to apply for funding from the discretionary grant program, how to get an application package, how to find help filling out the application forms, and other information related to grant paperwork. The booklet details how the Department reviews applications, how long it takes for a decision, and how the grants are scored. Other information includes what to do if a grant is awarded, what responsibilities follow the grant, how to ensure compliance with grant guidelines, and how to prepare for a site visit. The document also describes what happens after the project ends, what records to keep, and what are the audit requirements associated with the grant. (RJM)
