Review of Federal Programs
The State Clearinghouse (SCH) serves as the state's Single Point of Contact for the review of federal assistance applications pursuant to Presidential Executive Order No. 12372 . Notification of certain federal assistance applications must be provided to the SCH, which in turn publishes this information for review and comment by State and local elected officials. The SCH does not administer grant programs or offer any grant funding. Please visit grants.gov for funding opportunities.
How to Determine if Your Federal Assistance Application is Subject to Review
To determine if your federal assistance application is subject to review, search the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) list of federal programs by selecting “Yes” for “Executive Order 12372” on the Advanced Search page.
To inquire about eligibility, application procedures, and criteria used to approve federal assistance, applicants should contact the appropriate federal funding agency. The SCH is unable to provide this information.
Federal Assistance Application is Subject to Review
If your federal assistance program appears on the list of programs requiring state review, you must send one copy of your application cover form (Standard Form 424) to the SCH. Emailed copies of the Form 424 are accepted. DO NOT send your full application package or any other supplemental information. Send the Form 424 to:
Sacramento, CA 95812-3044
In the appropriate box on Form 424, mark that the federal assistance application was made available for state review under the Executive Order 12372 process before submitting your federal assistance application to the federal funding agency.
Federal Assistance Application is not Subject to Review
If your federal assistance program does not appear on the list of programs requiring state review, no further documentation is required by the SCH.
In the appropriate box on Form 424, mark that the federal assistance application has not been selected for state review under the Executive Order 12372 process before submitting your federal assistance application to the federal funding agency.
