FREE Hands-On Workshop:

Benefitting from Government Grant Reforms

  • September 16, South Jersey, CPAC inPennsauken



Good news came to non-profits in December 2014, when the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published Uniform Guidance governing government grants and contracts for non-profits that receive federal grant funds, either directly or passed through state and local entities.


Among many sweeping changes in the new rules, governments are now required to reimburse non-profits for reasonable indirect (“overhead”) contract costs when federal dollars are part of the funding stream.
