New uniform guidance changes – coupled with learning how to navigate a world trying to mitigate a pandemic crisis –  means shifting expectations, priorities and resources. It is clear that protecting your federal funding is more important than ever before in these uncertain times. 

Join Thompson Grants at the Federal Grants Forum in Orlando, Florida, on December 14th through 16th to learn learn about coronavirus-related grants considerations, the 2020 compliance supplement, and how new grants will be affected by the uniform guidance changes that went into effect on November 12, 2020. This is the compliance information you need to confidently manage your grants and protect your funding.

Our two or three-day agenda includes powerhouse sessions that cover everything you need to know – start to finish – about how to tackle the toughest grants management challenges while addressing how COVID-19 has changed the game. You’ll be able to ask your specific questions directly to our trainers!

With your registration, you will receive:
Two days of expert-led grants training
Networking opportunities during provided breakfasts, lunches, & optional dutch-treat dinner
Up to 18 NASBA CPEs & 18 GPCI CEUs 
Optional half-day post-conference “deep dive” workshop the day after the Forum 


Event Safety Guidelines:
We can’t wait to see you back in-person and will take all steps to ensure you feel safe and comfortable at our event. Thompson Grants will follow all CDC guidelines and we ask all attendees to follow mask mandates based on their individual vaccine status. Upon arrival attendees will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and will have their temperature checked.

Don't just take our word for it...
