OMB's "Mandatory Information Requirements for Federal
Assistance Program Announcements'' (45 FR 39592, June 11, 1980)
requires a statement concerning the official government programs
contained in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. Normally
NIH lists in its announcements the number and title of affected
individual programs for the guidance of the public. Because the
guidance in this notice covers virtually every NIH and Federal
research program in which DNA recombinant molecule techniques could
be used, it has been determined not to be cost effective or in the
public interest to attempt to list these programs. Such a list would
likely require several additional pages. In addition, NIH could not
be certain that every Federal program would be included as many
Federal agencies, as well as private organizations, both national
and international, have elected to follow the NIH Guidelines. In
lieu of the individual program listing, NIH invites readers to
direct questions to the information address above about whether
individual programs listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic
Assistance are affected.

Repayment Program for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds;
