The Federal Register is a legal newspaper published every business day by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Register lists proposed rules and regulations of federal agencies, program deadlines, applications procedure and a contact name. It cumulates into the Code of Federal Regulations, which is a codification of the general and permanent rules that elaborate upon and set rules for the interpretation, effectuation, and administration of federal statutes. Information on Federal block grants, for example, is contained in the CFR. The CFR can be searched by keyword and by sections.
