FY 2012 Direct Certification Grant
FNS is offering two types of grants: Planning Grants, which will be awarded in two rounds (i.e., First-Round Planning Grants and Second-Round Planning Grants); and Implementation Grants, which will be awarded on a rolling, quarterly basis. For more detailed information regarding deadlines and timelines, please see the CRITICAL DATES section and Appendix C: Timelines. Eligible State agencies may only apply for and hold one type of grant at a time.
To determine if a State agency is eligible to apply, see the WHO MAY APPLY section. The Planning Grants and Implementation Grants are governed by Cost Principles for State, Local, and Indian Tribal Governments, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-87 (2 CFR 225). The Circular establishes principles and standards for determining costs for Federal awards carried out through grants, cost reimbursement contracts, and other agreements with State and local governments and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (governmental units).
