DESCRIPTION

The critical component in any grant application is the attachment called “The Budget.” When the budget raises more questions than provides answers, the grant will be in deep trouble despite any merits the program promises.  

Tracking grant awarded funds is an important component of stewardship.  This session will include a discussion of how to create solid grant budgets, track monies and develop a final report that contrasts the budget to actual results, a key to successful renewals and obtaining new grant dollars. 

 

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • The role of the budget in the grant process
  • Red flags and common errors in grant budgets

  • Tracking grant income and expenses post-award using functional accounting classifications
  • How to use a financial management system to track grants and report
  • Correcting mistakes in grant management
