Funding Opportunity Announcement

A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is a notice in Grants.gov of a federal grant funding opportunity. Grants.gov lets organizations apply for grants for over 1,000 grant programs from 26 federal agencies.

Each FOA includes instructions -- a Grant Application Guide, and forms -- a Grant Application Package.

NIH FOAs can be program announcements or requests for applications.

Funding Opportunity Number

Funding Opportunity Numbers (FON) is a number that a federal agency assigns to its grant announcement. [ [http://www.grants.gov/applicants/email_subscription.jsp Grants.gov ] ]

FON are currently unique within the Grants.Gov System, (anenhancement is currently in the works that will allow duplicate funding opportunity numberswithin the system but they must still be unique within an Agency/Sub Agency.)

It must not have special characters other than a “-“ (dash) in the number.
