K0705 Fundamentals of Grants Management

The Grants Management Technical Assistance (GMTA) team will deliver 10 virtual K0705 Fundamentals of Grants Management courses throughout 2021. The course is intended for FEMA’s grant recipients and subrecipients. It helps participants strengthen their grants management skills. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Improve collaboration among policy, program, and financial staff to integrate grant management functions.  
  • Identify applicable regulations and navigate and apply the Code of Federal Regulations, including 2 CFR Part 200.
  • Apply proven business practices related to the grant lifecycle to increase efficiency and meet grant management priorities, such as strategic planning, organization, program implementation, staff training, monitoring, reporting, and audits.
  • Develop or revise policies, procedures, and practices in critical areas of grants management, such as monitoring, procurement, source documentation, payments, and equipment inventory.
  • Prepare for federal monitoring and sub-recipient monitoring.

The course is a four-week session and includes:

  • 21 hours of online instruction
  • 14 hours of independent study and homework assignments
  • Hands on activities and networking break-out rooms
