How to Get Started

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), signed into law by the President on February 17, 2009, addresses our present economic crisis and builds a foundation for our future.   To ensure the accountability and transparency of the funding opportunities, the following steps should be taken:

Step 1

Identify grant opportunities using either the links under Recovery Funding Opportunities or the Federal Agencies link.

Step 2
Complete Declaration of Interest Form.

Step 3
The FAMU Federal Stimulus-Recovery Committee (FFSRC), will review the Declaration of Interest Form and provide feedback within five (5) business days.

Step 4
Upon approval, submit the following documents to Office of Sponsored Programs, within thirty (30) days of the proposal due date:
  • Proposal Review Transmittal Form (PRTF)
  • Agency Guidelines
  • Abstract
  • Budget
  • Budget Justification
Please note:  The PRTF must have the signatures of Division Chair and Dean prior to submission to the Office of Sponsored Programs.

Step 5
To ensure the submittal of proposal within agency deadline, submit full proposals to the Office of Sponsored Programs at least six (6) business days prior to the agency’s deadline (receipt/postmark) date.  If the proposal consists of several budgets, a consortium, or multiple-year funding, please submit proposal to the Office of Sponsored Programs at least ten (10) business days prior to the agency’s deadline date.  Please note:  Sections of proposal should be organized according to the agency guidelines.
