Appendix V: Sources of Additional Information


Additional information concerning Federal programs and services is available from the sources listed below. The information in this Appendix is in addition to that supplied in Appendix IV (Regional and Local Office Addresses), but are not the offices to which an applicant applies for an assistance program. If a potential applicant or information seeker is not certain which agency to contact, there are two types of organizations set up to help: The Federal Information Center Program and the Federal Executive Boards.


The Federal Consumer Information Center Program (FCIC) is a focal point for information about the Federal government. The FCIC assists people who have questions about Federal agencies, services, and programs, but do not know where to turn for an answer. FCIC information specialists either answer an "inquirer" question directly, or perform the necessary research to locate and refer the inquirer to the expert best able to help. Telephone users may call the FCIC toll-free on (800) 688-9889 (TTY 1-800-326-2996) between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. eastern time, Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.


Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) are composed of heads of Federal field offices in the metropolitan area. The FEBs were established to improve internal Federal management practices, provide a central focus for Federal participation in civic affairs in major metropolitan centers of Federal activity, serve as a means for disseminating information within the Federal government and for promoting discussion of Federal policies and activities of importance to all Federal executives in the field. The FEBs carry out their functions under the supervision of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

Federal Executive Associations, and Councils, have been locally organized in over 80 other metropolitan areas to perform functions similar to the Federal Executive Boards but on a lesser scale of

organization and activity. For further information, contact the Assistant for Field Operations, Office of Personnel Management, Room 5524, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415-0001. Telephone: (202) 606-1001.

The Budget of the United States Government

The Budget of the United States Government sets forth the President's comprehensive financial plan and indicates the President's priorities for the Federal government.

Information on programs by function, agency, and account, and detailed budget estimates is located in the Budget. Federal programs listed in the Catalog may be identified by the 11-digit budget account identification code listed in the Budget. These codes also appear in the Financial Information section of each Catalog program. A complete explanation of the identification code is provided in Appendix III of the Catalog (the Budget Functional Code Appendix). The Budget may be purchased from the U.S. Government bookstores listed in this Appendix.


The Code of Federal Regulations

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is a codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by executive departments and agencies of the Federal government. It includes all statutory regulations of Federal agencies, and is divided into 50 titles which represent broad subject areas of Federal regulations (e.g., Housing and Urban Development, Public Health, Public Welfare, or Transportation). Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into parts covering specific regulatory areas. The number preceding the CFR citation is the title or volume number. The CFR is kept up-to-date by the individual issues of the Federal Register, these two publications must be used together to determine the latest version of any given rule. Individual volumes of the CFR are revised at least once each calendar year and issued on a staggered quarterly basis. The CFR thus serves as a convenient reference for the citizen desiring a comprehensive source for general and permanent Federal regulations.

A General index to the entire Code of Federal Regulations, the CFR Index, is revised as of July 1 each year. The numerical Finding Aids, a cumulative list of CFR Sections affected is published monthly and is cumulated for 12 months, keyed to the revision dates of the various CFR volumes.

The Code of Federal Regulations is available in Federal depository libraries and most major libraries or Federal bookstores. Individual copies may be purchased from the Government Printing Office.

The Federal Register

The Federal Register, published daily, is the medium for making available to the public Federal agency regulations and other legal documents of the Executive Branch. These documents cover a wide range of government activities. Here, government requirements are published which involve environmental protection, consumer product safety, food and drug standards, occupational health and safety, and many more areas of concern to the public.

The Federal Register includes proposed changes in regulated areas. Each proposed change published carries an invitation for any citizen or group to participate in the consideration of the proposed regulation through the submission of written data, views, or arguments, and sometimes by oral presentations. Through the publication of proposed rules and notices of public meetings, citizens are given the opportunity to be informed about and participate in the workings of their government.

The Federal Register is also a vehicle for the announcement of newly authorized and/or funded programs, notifications of funding availabilty, (NOFAs), program application deadlines, and other important program information.

The Federal Register Index is based on a consolidation of entries appearing in the issues of the Federal Register together with broad references. It is published monthly and is cumulative for 12 months. The Federal Register and the Federal Register Index are available in Federal depository libraries and most major libraries or Federal bookstores.

Additional Federal Register resources include, the Statistical Abstract of the United States; Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents; The Federal Register: What It Is and How To Use It.

All Federal Register publications may be purchased from: Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402.
