With the advent of Uniform Grant Guidance, everything from the way you apply for grants to how you manage your funding has changed.

It’s imperative that your entire team is not only up-to-date on the latest grants rules and regulations, but also that each person knows the steps to take to protect your funding.

Join us at the Federal Grants Forum in Baltimore, Maryland, on October 4th through 6th to get answers to questions like:

  • What does the new administration mean for me and my grants?
  • How do I develop an indirect cost rate? What are different types of indirect rate structures I could use?
  • How should I update my policies and procedures so they reflect "reasonable assurance" that my organization is making a good faith attempt to comply with requirements?

Attend this two-day training event to learn from powerhouse sessions delivered by knowledgeable compliance experts in the grants, accounting and legal communities while networking with other grants and finance professionals facing similar challenges. You'll walk away with clear guidance about the new requirements under 2 CFR 200, how the changes will impact your federal programs and where to start.

With your registration, you will receive:

  • Two days of expert-led grants training
  • Networking opportunities during provided breakfasts and lunches
  • BONUS! Thompson's Grants Quick Start Toolkit, to help guide you through pre-award to post-award and audit - a $249 value!
  • BONUS! 6 months of digital access to Thompson's Grants Management Handbook so that you can easily stay up-to-date on the regulation changes, emerging trends, and the latest grants news. And, with our “Ask the Expert" feature, a subscriber favorite, you get answers to YOUR grants management questions with a direct line to our editors - a $215 value! (New subscribers only.)
  • BONUS! A printed copy of the Uniform Guidance - a $49 value!

We also invite you to our "Procurement Standards Deep Dive", taking place the morning of Friday, October 6. This workshop can be attended as a stand-alone session or as an extension of your Federal Grants Forum participation.
