SF-424 Short Form, SF-424 Project Abstract Form, SF-424 Key Contacts Form—OMB No. 4040-0003.


Abstract Back to Top

The SF-424 (Short) provides the Federal grant-making agencies a simplified alternative to the Standard Form 424 data set and form. Agencies may use the SF-424 (Short) for grant programs not required to collect all the data that is required on the SF-424 core data set and form.

This information collection request includes two SF-424 supplemental forms, the Key Contacts form and the Project Abstract form. The Key Contacts form is an optional form that the agencies may include in the application package to collect additional key contact or point of contact information. The Project Abstract form is also an optional form that provides the mechanism for the applicant to attach a file that contains an abstract of the project, in a format specified by the agency.

Federal agencies will not be required to use the forms or to collect all of the information included on the proposed forms. The agency will identify the forms and the form sections that must be completed by applicants through instructions that will accompany the forms. Agencies will implement processes for reviewing the applications and awarding grant funds. These processes are reflected in agencies' policies and procedures documents. Agencies will also maintain and store application forms and data in accordance with their policies and practices.

The 4040-0003 collection expired on November 30, 2011. The Program Management Office requests a reinstatement without change.
