Agencies that receive grant awards directly are referred to as Grantees. Grantees may contract services to other agencies, and these programs are referred to as Delegates. Search results display the Grantee program name. When applicable, the Delegate program name is listed below the Grantee program name with a curved arrow to show the relationship to the primary Grantee (see key below results list).
