For federally-funded nonprofits, documenting and managing federal interest in their real and personal property is critical to avoiding disputes upon disposition of that property, in particular disputes with the government over equitable title when a project comes to an end. Failure to fully understand the impact of a federal interest in your nonprofit’s property can not only jeopardize your mission but also expose your organization to sizable liability.
Please join David Bender and Scott Sheffler of the law firm, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell, LLP, as they discuss the federal government’s interest in real and personal property that grant and cooperative agreement recipients acquire or improve with federal funds. They will discuss what a “federal interest” is and how it is created, its importance to you as a nonprofit, and the legal and practical implications of federal interests in recipients’ property. Additionally, they will explain the related requirements under the Uniform Guidance pertaining to use and management of real and personal property, plus approaches to federal interest when real and personal property are offered by recipients to satisfy cost sharing requirements.
