Grant Management Information
In support of its mission, IHS awards grants for more than a dozen programs and is part of the largest grant-awarding agency in the Federal Government. There are two types of grants: non-discretionary and discretionary. IHS awards only discretionary grants
- Discretionary grants permit the Federal government, according to specific authorizing legislation, to exercize judgment, or "discretion," in selecting the applicant/recipient organization, through a competitive grant process.
- Non-Discretionary grants are those that a Federal agency is required by statute to award if the recipient, usually a state, submits an acceptable State Plan or application and meets the eligibility and compliance requirements of the statutory and regulatory provisions of the grant program.
