About P.L. 106-107

The Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act of 1999, also known as Public Law 106-107 (P.L. 106-107), was enacted on November 1999. The purposes of the Act are to (1) improve the effectiveness and performance of Federal financial assistance programs, (2) simplify Federal financial assistance application and reporting requirements, (3) improve the delivery of services to the public, and (4) facilitate greater coordination among those responsible for delivering services.

The 26 Federal agencies that award grants and cooperative agreements are actively implementing P.L. 106-107 through interagency work groups. The activities of the interagency include development of common data elements for applications and reports, common electronic processes, and uniform administrative rules across agencies.

This website includes information about P.L. 106-107, the agencies and groups responsible for implementation, their accomplishments, and future activities. This website also serves as a resource to anyone wanting to find out about current developments in Federal grants and cooperative agreements.

P.L. 106-107 is not a source for funding of grants. If you are seeking information about funding opportunities, you may consult the Find Grant Opportunities page.
