Federal Grant Awards
Annotated descriptions of Federal Grant Awards Search and Detail pages in GovTribe
A grant is an award of financial assistance from a federal agency to a recipient to carry out a public project or service authorized by a United States law. Unlike loans, grants do not need to be repaid. Most grants are awarded to state and local governments. On this site, you’ll see reference to several types of grants, including block grants, formula grants, project grants, and cooperative agreements.
In GovTribe, the Awards section of the main menu contains the award information and obligations for every federal contract, contract IDV, contracting vehicle, and grant. The Federal Grant Award data on GovTribe is acquired weekly from a single source: grants.gov
Award information is searchable on GovTribe, via the Awards section of the navigation menu.
