Additional Resources


NOTE: The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013 signed into law on March 26 extends the eligibility of communities that were eligible for housing programs administered by the Rural Housing Service (Single Family and Multi Family Housing Programs) on September 30, 2012 to September 30, 2013. For all other Rural Development programs, USDA will use the 2010 Census data to determine eligibility for rural areas beginning on March 27, 2013.

System for Award Management (sam.gov)

SAM is the new streamlined reporting system for USDA staff and other federal agencies. The consolidated system simplifies the process for loan and grant recipients and makes project tracking more transparent.

SAM replaces the following systems: Central Contractor Registration (CCR), Federal Agency Registration (FedReg), Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List.

More information is at http://sam.gov and frequently Asked Questions/Quick Start

The web addresses for legacy systems will also automatically redirect users to sam.gov.
