COVID-19 And Federal Grants: What You Need To Know and What You Need To Do

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and some federal agencies are modifying federal grant practices and compliance standards during this difficult time. You need to understand where flexibility exists and which actions to prioritize to continue to comply with the practices dictated by 2 CFR 200.

As the COVID-19 pandemic brings challenges to your nonprofit, now is the time to consider its effects on your federal grants. For example, you may need to document the loss of operational capacity, explain increased costs, funding of unusual staff attendance and leave and use of no-cost extensions.

To share the latest information on federal grant requirements, we have assembled a two-session webinar series explaining first, what is the federal perspective and intent during COVID-19 and, secondly, how your non-profit should react. Nationally recognized expert Rex Porter will explain the key aspects of grant compliance practices during the COVID-19 crisis.
