This part establishes the Social Security Administration (SSA) administrative requirements for grants and agreements awarded to institutions of higher education, hospitals, other non-profit organizations, and commercial organizations. Subpart E of this part, which sets forth the SSA appeal process for disputes arising under SSA awards, applies to all SSA grants and cooperative agreements, including awards to the State, local and Indian tribal governments covered by 20 CFR part 437. SSA will not impose additional or inconsistent requirements, except as provided in §§ 435.4 and 435.14. Non-profit organizations that implement Federal programs for the States are also subject to State requirements. For availability of OMB circulars, see 5 CFR 1310.3.
