(1) This section prescribes forms and instructions to be used by governmental organizations
(except hospitals and institutions of higher education operated by a government) in
applying for grants. This section is not applicable, however, to formula grant programs which do not
require applicants to apply for funds on a project basis.
(2) This section applies only to applications to Federal agencies for grants, and is
not required to be applied by grantees in dealing with applicants for subgrants. However, grantees are encouraged to avoid more detailed or burdensome application
requirements for subgrants.
(b) Authorized forms and instructions for governmental organizations.
(1) In applying for grants, applicants shall only use standard application forms or those
prescribed by the granting agency with the approval of OMB under the Paperwork Reduction
Act of 1980.
(2) Applicants are not required to submit more than the original and two copies of preapplications
(3) Applicants must follow all applicable instructions that bear OMB clearance numbers. Federal agencies may specify and describe the programs, functions, or activities
that will be used to plan, budget, and evaluate the work under a grant. Other supplementary instructions may be issued only with the approval of OMB to
the extent required under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980. For any standard form, except the SF–424 facesheet, Federal agencies may shade out
or instruct the applicant to disregard any line item that is not needed.
(4) When a grantee applies for additional funding (such as a continuation or supplemental
award) or amends a previously submitted application, only the affected pages need
be submitted. Previously submitted pages with information that is still current need not be resubmitted.
