Federal Grant Review

The State Clearinghouse (SCH) serves as the state's Single Point of Contact for the review of federal grant applications pursuant to Presidential Executive Order No. 12372. Notification of certain federal grant applications must be provided to the SCH, which in turn publishes this information for review and comment by public agencies. The SCH does not administer grant programs or offer any grant funding. Please visit grants.gov"> for funding opportunities.

How to Determine if Your Grant Application is Subject to Review

To determine if your grant is subject to review, search by the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number on this list of federal programs requiring state review.

To inquire about eligibility, application procedures, and criteria used to approve grants, applicants should contact the appropriate federal funding agency. The SCH is unable to provide this information.

You must send one copy of your application cover form (Standard Form 424) to the SCH. Faxed copies of the Form 424 are accepted. DO NOT send your full application package or any other supplemental information. Send the Form 424 to:

In the appropriate box on Form 424, mark that the grant was made available for state review under the Executive Order 12372 process before submitting your grant application to the federal funding agency.

My Grant is Not Subject to Review

If your grant program does not appear on the list of programs requiring state review, no further documentation is required by the SCH.

In the appropriate box on Form 424, mark that the grant has not been selected for state review under the Executive Order 12372 process before submitting your grant application to the federal funding agency.
