Closing Out Your Federal Program

August 21, 2018 at 1:00 pm EST

By: Jen Castillo, Esq.

Course Description: While there are many rules and requirements related to implementation of federal programs, most grantees and subrecipients focus on what is required to receive and expend funds rather than worry about what is necessary to close a federal award.  This webinar will focus on issues such as document retention, final reporting requirements, disposition of equipment and supplies, and other concerns when programs end.  While such concerns will focus on multi-year discretionary programs like 21st Century, many of these issues also impact annual formula awards like Title I, Perkins, IDEA, and Adult Education.
