Guide to U.S. Department of Education Programs
US Department of Education
The Guide to U.S. Department of Education Programs and Resources, commonly referred to as the Guide to ED Programs, provides an overview of all Department of Education programs authorized and funded under federal law. It also includes information on competitions administered under these programs as well as on the laboratories, centers, and other facilities funded by the Department that provide important resources for education. Each entry in this volume is listed under a broad topical heading, which is keyed to the table of contents found on page vii of the 2004 printed Guide. The program title and any other commonly used names come next, followed by the principal office that administers the program. These are followed by the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CDFA) number or similar Department number (numbers 84.500 and higher). Programs which are listed as "No CFDA" do not have CFDA numbers assigned to them. After the CFDA number, information is provided about which entities are eligible to apply to each program. Next comes information on any current competitions and the types of assistance available. Funding levels for FY 2004 and the previous two fiscal years follow next. Most of the programs in the guide received funding in FY 2004. Programs that received no funding in FY 2004 are also included in the guide because they are still disbursing continuation funds from previous years.
