The programs would be detailed in The Catalog Of Federal Domestic Assistance at http://www.cfda.gov/. It is searchable and viewable for free at that site and can be found at the reference section of your local library if you want to read a hard copy.
If you have any problems locating info, a free call to the government at 1-800-688-9889 or http://fic.info.gov/ will get you on track.
Most of these federal programs are administered locally by your city/county housing or community development departments. Give them a call for free information. They can be found in the government pages of your phone book.
One last place that comes to mind with a lot of free or low cost federal info is the Consumer Information Center at http://www.pueblo.gsa.gov/
