Grant Management: Pre-Award Federal Activities


Grant Management: Pre-Award Federal Activities – from Appropriations to Award
Session 2 of the Grant Management Series

For many organizations, the federal government is a mystery – grants are advertised, and grants are awarded without any understanding of how either happen. In this From Appropriations to Review webinar, the presenter will provide background information on how grant opportunities are created, including information on appropriations, distributions aligned with agency strategic plans, and solicitation announcements. The presenter will also help applicants better understand what information the federal agencies are studying after a proposal has been submitted (Clue: It isn’t just the proposal!).
