Uniform Grant Guidance has changed the game – from applying for grants to managing funding and beyond.

These changes drastically affect anyone managing grants and cooperative agreements. It’s imperative that your entire team is not only up-to-date on the latest 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 Irvine, California, on January 31 through February 1, to learn the new requirements under 2 CFR 200, how the changes will impact your federal programs and where to start.

Without the proper guidance and tools, you and your current and future funding are at risk unlike ever before so don’t wait until it’s too late! Attend a Federal Grants Forum to get the guidance you need.

This two-day training event will be packed with sessions delivered by compliance experts in the grants, accounting and legal communities. You'll walk away with clear guidance on how to comply, while demonstrating performance and success as well as revising your policies and procedures.

Each attendee will receive six 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. (New subscribers only.)

Bonus! To help guide you through pre-award to post-award and audit, Thompson's Grants Quick Start Toolkit - a $249 value - is included in your registration!

We also invite you to our "Procurement Deep Dive", taking place the morning of February 2. This workshop can be attended as a stand-alone session or as an extension of your Federal Grants Forum participation.
