By working with a statewide federal grant network, which includes a primary point of contact at state agencies, the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) provides resources and assistance on all aspects of federal grants and identifies new funding opportunities and facilitates trainings to encourage and improve the ability of interested parties to pursue and manage federal grants.

To find state grant opportunities in one centralized location, please visit the California State Grants Portal.

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 all federal assistance applications must be provided to the SCH pursuant to Assembly Bill No. 1348, which in turn publishes this information for review and comment by State and local elected officials. SAM Section 0912 requires that California State departments submit new federal funds through the SCH and then through Finance through a DF-24 notification prior to applying for funds.

The SCH does not administer grant programs or offer any grant funding. Please visit for funding opportunities and for the online Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA).
