How to apply...

A peer review panel considers each proposal, evaluates the qualifications of applicants in line with research to be undertaken and determines priority for final negotiations of the grant.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
