             FEDERAL FUNDING REPORT TABLE OF CONTENTS

          This Federal Funding Report is a weekly compilation of items published in the Federal Register which
affect Federal domestic assistance programs. No attempt is made to include Federal Register notices not directly
related to Grants and Loans programs. The summary consists of three parts: (1) Federal Register Summary, (2)
Early Warning Grants Report, and (3) Disaster Loan Applications.

         Periodically, a Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number will not be listed in the
announcement. There are two (2) basic reasons for this: 1) a CFDA number has been applied for and not yet
received, or 2) the CFDA number has not been put in by the agency yet. Please call the contact person listed in
the Federal Register announcement for the correct CFDA number. The new number should appear in the next
edition of the CFDA, which is published in June and December of each year.
