|Title: Changes and Amendments to 7 CFR Part 3430--Competitive and Noncompetitive Non-formula Federal Assistance Programs-General Award Administrative Provisions|
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) issues grants and cooperative agreements to a variety of entities including, but not limited to, colleges and universities, other Federal agencies, and individuals in support of agricultural research, education, and extension programs. The Agency's administrative provision, 7 CFR 3430--Competitive and Noncompetitive Non-formula Federal Assistance Programs, contains elements common to all competitive and noncompetitive grant programs it administers in subparts A through E. Subpart F and thereafter apply to specific grant programs.
7 CFR 3430 does not currently apply to any of the formula grant programs administered by NIFA. NIFA is proposing to expand the scope of 7 CFR 3430 to include these programs and to modify the title of the regulation to 7 CFR 3430 Competitive, Noncompetitive, and Capacity Federal Assistance Programs.
At the time 7 CFR 3430 was established, the agency planned to cancel some of the existing program-specific regulations identified in 7 CFR and incorporate those program-specific regulations as separate subparts under this part. NIFA is proposing to cancel 7 CFR parts 3402, Food and Agricultural Sciences National Needs Graduate and Postgraduate Fellowship Grants Program; 3405, Higher Education Challenge Grants Program; 3406, 1890 Institution Capacity Building Grants Program; and 3415, Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program and incorporate them in subparts N, R, S, and T.
