US Department of Education
This paper provides an overview of U.S. Department of Education programs authorized and funded under federal law. It includes information as well on the laboratories, centers, and other facilities funded by the Department that provide important resources for education. Readers will find funding information, contact information, and a web site for more information about each program. Each entry, which gives a brief overview of a program or resource, is listed initially by a broad topical heading. The "Guide" is organized alphabetically according to these topical headings, and then alphabetically by program title within each heading.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) or ED number follows. Programs that do not have CFDA or ED numbers assigned are listed as "None" in this field. After the CFDA or ED number, information is provided about the entities that are eligible to apply to each program. Next comes information on any current competitions and the types of assistance available. Funding levels for fiscal year (FY) 2010 and the previous two fiscal years follow next.
