On October 8, 2003, OMB issued a policy directive entitled “Requirement to Post Funding Opportunity Announcement Synopses at and Related Data Elements/Format” [68 FR 58146, October 8, 2003]. The directive requires every Federal agency that awards discretionary grants and cooperative agreements to post synopses of its funding opportunity announcements in standard format on the Internet at or such Web site/Internet address that may be identified by OMB. A key purpose for establishing a single government-wide Web site is to provide prospective grant applicants the opportunity to locate funding opportunities in one place rather than having to search for announcements in multiple locations. Shortly after OMB issued the directive, the Corporation began posting synopses of its NOFAs at Each Corporation synopsis includes information on how to obtain the full NOFA, as well as a ULR link to the full NOFA posted on the Corporation's own Web site. The Corporation has determined that posting its funding announcements at and on its own Web site is both effective and efficient. Therefore, the Corporation has discontinued the policy of publishing NOFAs in the Federal Register.
