This is the annual summary report on grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This report provides an overview of the different grant programs administered by HHS.
This report covers the period of October 1, 2002 through September 30, 2003, Fiscal Year (FY) 2003. The report has three sections: 1) overview, 2) mandatory grant awards, and 3) discretionary grant awards. Mandatory grants include block, closed-ended, and open-ended entitlement grants. Grants awarded as cooperative agreements are included under discretionary grants.
The grant information in this report is from the Departmentís Tracking Accountability in Government Grants System (TAGGS), which contains data submitted by the HHS operating divisionsí and staff divisions (referred to as OPDIV) grants information systems. For various reasons, including the fact that some OPDIVs may award grants with funds appropriated for other OPDIVs, the amounts shown for each OPDIV will differ from the amounts shown in OPDIV Budget Requests.
In the health area, our Medicaid program, a jointly-funded Federal-State health insurance program, assists States in the provision of adequate medical care for low-income people. Other health programs encompass biomedical research, training of biomedical research scientists and health professionals, support of health professional schools, development and delivery of health services, disease prevention and health promotion programs, and construction of research, educational and health facilities.
Our social service programs provide support to every group of Americans, including children, youth, families, and the elderly. Social service programs include Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, refugee assistance, enforcement of child support payment orders, foster care and adoption, prevention of child abuse and neglect, Indian tribal services, and Head Start programs.
By aggregating this grant information into this single report, we hope to provide a more complete and useful understanding of the Departmentís grant awards.
