About CDC Regulations and Policies

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is an Operating Division (OPDIV) of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), one of the largest grantmaking agencies of the USG. If your organization focuses on health in the developing world, you're certain to run into CDC funding.

As an agency of the USG, HHS/CDC is subject to the OMB's Uniform Guidance on administering assistance awards (2 CFR 200 - see About 2 CFR 200), which it adopts via 2 CFR 300 and implements (with its own additions/clarifications) at 45 CFR 75 (eCFR link). See more at About 45 CFR 75.

HHS publishes an extensive HHS Grants Policy Statement (GPS) that supplements and amplifies 45 CFR 75.

In addition to 45 CFR 75 and HHS's GPS, CDC imposes numerous policy requirements on its recipients. See CDC's informational website for grant recipients for their fairly extensive offering.
