In this two-day grants management training you’ll get the skills and know-how to keep your project on track, comply with grant regulations, and protect your Tribe from the administrative and legal chaos that results from poor grants management. The sweeping changes in the new grant regulations known as 2 CFR Part 200 created a radically different landscape for Tribal governments and nonprofits competing for their share of the more than $600 billion in federal grants awarded each year. This presentation will show grant writers and grant managers how to model success by introducing practical strategies and real-life examples designed to showcase winning proposal design and proactive grant management. Benefits include access to additional funding, strengthened program oversight, and better grant outcomes. Participants can expect to:

  • Increase their confidence that they are up-to-date on the federal grant management requirements with the implementation of the new “Super Circular” 2 CFR Part 200
  • Refresh their understanding of the general grant management requirements so that they can position for additional funding and improved grant outcomes
  • Gain a deeper expertise in the new OMB guidance focused on areas that are relevant to various Tribes/Tribal organizations
