New uniform guidance changes – coupled with learning how to navigate a world trying to mitigate a pandemic crisis – means shifting expectations, priorities and resources. Over the past year, state and local governments have been among the most heavily impacted entities. Because more than 75% of all federal funding is awarded to pass-through entities such as state and local governments, which in turn offer subawards to other applicants, it is vital that protecting your federal funding is more important than ever before in these uncertain times.
Join Thompson Grants virtually for the Federal Grants Forum March 2–3, 2022 and learn about coronavirus-related grants considerations, the 2021 Compliance Supplement and its subsequent addenda, and how grants have been impacted by the uniform guidance changes that went into effect on November 12, 2020. Federal agencies have issued numerous COVID-19-related guidance that specifically targets the responsibilities of state and local governments. This is the compliance information you need to confidently manage your grants and protect your funding.
Our two-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 and the new audit testing requirements have changed the game. PLUS, you’ll be able to ask your specific questions directly to our trainers in our virtual learning environment as you watch the presentations.
With your registration, you will receive:
✓ Two days of expert-led grants training.
✓ Up to 9.6 NASBA CPEs & 9.6 GPCI CEUs (Interactive virtual viewers only)
