The original IC was assigned the OMB Control Number 0980–0204. The IC expired on 4/30/2015.

These forms are submitted to the Federal grant-making agencies for evaluation and review.

ACF discretionary grant programs are required to use this application 
format. An ACF application consists of general information and 
instructions; the Standard Form 424 series, which requests basic 
information, budget information, and assurances; the Project 
Description that requests the applicant to describe how program 
objectives will be achieved; a rationale for the project's budgeted 
costs; and other assurances and certifications. Guidance for the
