Federal Funding Opportunity

The Department of Commerce Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113) authorizes the U.S. Census Bureau to award cooperative agreements to appropriate entities, including any Federal, State, or local government unit, or institution of higher education, to aid and promote certain statistical, research, and methodology activities.

The Census Bureau has posted a Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) announcement to solicit applications from eligible applicants to support specific research projects that will help improve measurement of the U.S. population and economy, and to inform the general public about the selection criteria we will use to administer  the discretionary Federal assistance award under this FFO.  Applications that achieve some or all of the following goals are sought: improving data capture and linkages using administrative data, the identification and pursuit of data to improve evidence building, new statistical products describing the U.S. population; and the development of innovative privacy technology.
