Grants Program Announcement Plan -- ACTION
In September 1992, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Management and Budget (OASMB) instituted a requirement for a Grant Program Announcement Plan (see attached format and instructions). The plan is to be updated annually with the Fiscal Year 1996 plans due to the Public Health Service on April 24, 1995.
If you anticipate announcing a competitive grants program for next fiscal year (1996), please fill in the information requested and fax your completed plan to the Grants Management Branch (GMB) by COB April 20, 1995. Our fax number is (301) 443-9602.
The GMB will continue to assist program offices with the development of new announcements as well as to provide the necessary GMB clearance of all program announcements for Indian Health Service programs. Please contact me when you know that funding will be available so that we can begin advance planning and work on the announcement. Program offices are responsible for coordinating directly with Ms. Betty Penn, Chief, Regulations Branch, Office of Planning, Evaluation, & Legislation, for IHS clearance of the draft document and for final publication of the announcement in the Federal Resister.
If you have any questions, please contact me on (301) 443-5204.
