Where can I get help about CFDA?

Do I need to register for an Agency User account to use the system? No. CFDA Agency User accounts are only for Federal government staff managing the CFDA program data. You do not need an account to search the CFDA catalog or to view Federal assistance programs. This information is freely available to any interested party. You can search by keyword, by agency, by program number as well as fine tune your search requests using the advanced search feature.
Why was my account request rejected? CFDA system accounts are only for Federal government staff managing the CFDA program data. If your account request was rejected, that means that the Agency Coordinator was unable to confirm your status as a government staff member. If you feel this decision is in error, let us know via the email@example.com e-mail address.
Is there a User Manual? The public user manual is available on the homepage (www.cfda.gov) in PDF format. There is also a link to it at the bottom of every page.
Is there a way to electronically download program data? The CFDA established a public FTP site in order to promote sharing of program data, as well as to provide a means for related government systems to download data reliably and efficiently. The FTP site URL is ftp://ftp.cfda.gov and provides users with the ability to anonymously download program data in csv format. There are two available file options:
Daily File: This file is updated nightly and will contain the following limited program data fields: Program Number, Program Title, and Agency. The file name will adhere to the following naming convention: "programsYYDDD" with the 2-digit year and 3-digit Julian day, e.g., programs09159.csv
Weekly File: This file is updated weekly (Sunday night) and will contain ALL program data fields publicly available. The file name will adhere to the following naming convention: "programs-fullYYDDD" with the 2-digit year and 3-digit Julian day, e.g., programs-full09164.csv
How can I tell if a CFDA program contains Recovery Act funding? All CFDA programs that are funded in whole or in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act) have a "RECOVERY" icon embedded in their header information. This icon is visible in the [Search Recovery Programs] results and when you view the program description for a Recovery Act-funded program.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance is a government-wide compendium of Federal programs, projects, services, and activities that provide assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial and nonfinancial assistance programs administered by departments and establishments of the Federal government.
In 1984, Public Law 98-169 authorized the transfer of responsibilities of the Federal Program Information Act from the Office of Management and Budget to the General Services Administration (GSA). The transfer took place in July 1984. These responsibilities include the dissemination of Federal domestic assistance program information through the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, pursuant to the Federal Program Information Act, Public Law 95-220, as amended by Public Law 98-169. GSA now maintains the Federal assistance information database from which program information is obtained. The Office of Management and Budget serves as an intermediary agent between the Federal agencies and GSA, thus providing oversight to the necessary collection of Federal domestic assistance program data.
As the basic reference source of Federal programs, the primary purpose of the Catalog is to assist users in identifying programs that meet specific objectives of the potential applicant, and to obtain general information on Federal assistance programs. In addition, the intent of the Catalog is to improve coordination and communication between the Federal government and State and local governments.
Programs selected for inclusion in the Federal assistance data base are defined as any function of a Federal agency that provides assistance or benefits for a State or States, territorial possession, county, city, other political subdivision, grouping, or instrumentality thereof; any domestic profit or nonprofit corporation, institution, or individual, other than an agency of the Federal government.
A "Federal domestic assistance program" may in practice be called a program, an activity, a service, a project, a process, or some other name, regardless of whether it is identified as a separate program by statute or regulation. It will be identified in terms of its legal authority, administering office, funding, purpose, benefits, and beneficiaries.
"Assistance" or "benefits" refers to the transfer of money, property, services, or anything of value, the principal purpose of which is to accomplish a public purpose of support or stimulation authorized by Federal statute. Assistance includes, but is not limited to grants, loans, loan guarantees, scholarships, mortgage loans, insurance, and other types of financial assistance, including cooperative agreements; property, technical assistance, counseling, statistical, and other expert information; and service activities of regulatory agencies. It does not include the provision of conventional public information services.
For years, GSA has published a printed version of the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA or Catalog), as required by legislation dating to 1977 and 1983. That same legislation allowed GSA to distribute free copies of the printed Catalog to designated recipients. In fiscal year 2003, nearly 10,000 paper copies of the Catalog were distributed at no cost to the recipients.
Current legislation, however, authorizes GSA to determine in what form to prepare and publish the Catalog. Consistent with the Administration's Electronic-Government initiatives, the Government Paperwork Elimination Act, and a move to a paper free environment, GSA will now disseminate the Catalog electronically through the CFDA website on the Internet. As a result, effective immediately, GSA will no longer print and distribute free copies of the Catalog.
The Internet and GSA’s free CFDA website at http://www.cfda.gov will be the primary means of disseminating the Catalog. The CFDA website will also contain a PDF file version of the Catalog that, when printed by any user, will have the same layout as the printed document that the Government Printing Office (GPO) has provided.
GPO will continue printing and selling the CFDA to interested buyers. For information about purchasing the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance from GPO, call the Superintendent of Documents at 202-512-1800 or toll free at 866-512-1800, or you may reach GPO's on-line bookstore at

Debt - As many as a third of consumers hide their debts from other family members. Men may be more likely to hide personal debts from their partners and do not tell them how much they really owe. Hidden debts can accumulate quickly just through pre approved credit card offers. Many times one partner completes those credit card offers without the other partner’s knowledge. Store cards and credit cards appear to be the most common way that hidden debts are acquired.
No matter how debt happens, getting control of debts is the most important thing to do. The average consumer usually has up to five or more credit cards and owes around five thousand dollars on just one card. One option is to do a balance transfer to a 0% or low introductory card. This can eliminate shuffling all those credit card balances and only have one card balance due each month. However, when a consumer's plan is not working, using a debt professional can help.
Debt professionals use several ways to help consumers get control of debts. There is debt consolidation, debt settlement, and credit counseling services. Knowing which service is best for your needs can also be determined by the help of a good professional. Millions of consumers are in debt and are not doing anything. Credit scores are more important than ever, ignoring debts is not a good idea and it can lead to more debt trouble and bad credit scores. Start early before debts are 60 days late and get on your way to being debt free and stress free. Getting out of debt can take time and sacrifices may need to be made until finances are on track.
One of the best tips for those who are in debt, is to stop spending money! Get out those bills and total what you really owe. Review all the minimum payments due and plan on paying more for each one that you can. Get a second job or find money in your budget by eliminating or reducing some bills. For example, cut cell phone plans, cancel club memberships, reduce the TV cable plan, and eliminate some hobbies until debts are payoff. It can time and effort to get control, but better credit scores and a less stressful life are the benefits.
