Ethics: Creating Ethical Grant Budgets and Sustainability Plans
Session 6 of the Ethics Series
For many organizations, a federal grant will be a significant expansion to an existing program or the initial funding for a program that does not yet exist. This can make the creation of grant budgets a very speculative process. In addition, agencies may not know when they write the grant exactly how they will sustain the program after the federal grant is finished. This session will discuss how to ensure that discussions about grant budgets and sustainability plans are anchored by current processes and a commitment to best ethical practices..
What You’ll Learn:
- Best ethical practices for creating new grant budgets
- Best ethical practices for implementing new sustainability activities
- How to talk to executive and financial leadership about grant policies and procedures which support ethical grant expenditures and quality program sustainability policies

Ethics Training Series
So often ethics about grants are focused on the mismanagement of grant funding which gets flashy headlines in the news. But ethics are important throughout the full grant lifecycle from research to reporting. Each training will present information tied to grant and development codes of conduct, standard grant best practices, and case studies and will facilitate a question and answer session for each core topic.
