How to apply...
The standard application forms, as furnished by PHS and required by 45 CFR 74 (for institutions of higher education, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations), and 45 CFR 92 (for state and local governments) must be used for this program. All other applicants should submit completed Form OPHS-1,(Revised 6/2001), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service Grant Application, documenting the need for the grant and the proposed amount of the grant. The Regional Health Administrator has approval authority for the program. Contact should be made with the appropriate Regional Health Administrator (see name/address in Additional Contact Information - FMR Help) to obtain the Application Kit. This program is subject to the provisions of 45 CFR 74, 45 CFR 92, as well as OMB Circular No. A-102 (Administrative Guidelines for state and local governments) and OMB Circular No. A-110 (Administrative Guidelines for Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Nonprofit Organizations).
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Following approval by the Regional Health Administrator, the Office of Grants Management for Family Planning Services prepares a Notice of Grant Award, secures necessary clearances and approval signatures, issues the Notice of Grant Award, enters the approved award in the grant payment process, and provides notification of grant approval to the public.
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.
