Funding Databases

Federal Databases was established as a governmental resource. Named the E-Grants Initiative, it is part of the President's 2002 Fiscal Year Management Agenda to improve government services to the public. The concept has its origins in the Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act of 1999, also known as Public Law 106-107, which has since been retired. Public Law 106-107 is now known as the Grants Policy Committee (GPC). For more information on the Grants Policy Committee.
