Glossary of Terms

Who doesn't love to throw around an acronym? They're cool-sounding and save precious seconds during communication.

We at CDFA (hey, there's an acronym now) aren't big on speaking in acronyms, but they're a reality of life when dealing with federal and state programs. It would be quite presumptuous of us to just assume you know what all these letters stand for (like inviting you to a party where everyone spoke Esperanto).

Here’s a glossary of some of the acronyms you’re likely to come across working on your project.
