Subject: Terminology Changes
The Office of Head Start (OHS) is updating terms used in official documents, correspondence, and other communications to align with terminology used in 2 CFR Part 200 and 45 CFR Part 75. These changes are part of a concerted effort encouraging consistency across all U.S. Department of Health and Human Services agencies, where applicable. While the overall process will be gradual, recipients can anticipate seeing new terms immediately. The terminology changes are outlined in the table below.
|Previous Term||New Term|
|Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)||Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)|
If you have any questions regarding these terminology changes, please contact your Regional Office.
Thank you for the work you do on behalf of children and families.
