Federal Grants Update for Nonprofits

This webinar is hosted by the Charleston Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants as part of their AGA Spring Conference, held virtually this year.

This session will cover the pros and cons of having a Federal grant or cooperative agreement.  There will be a discussion around different scenarios as to whether you can negotiate a NICRA rate with an agency or negotiate an indirect rate with your Pass-Through Entity.  The de minimis rate will be explained.  We will also include a discussion regarding PPP loan forgiveness and its impact on the F&A indirect cost pool or directly to a Federal award.  We will hit on problematic sub-recipients, fixed amount awards and a list of changes to the revised Uniform Guidance (11/12/2020).

Attendees will:

  • Learn about the usefulness of Federal grants – Pros and Cons,
  • Understand several negotiation scenarios in obtaining a NICRA indirect rate directly with an agency or when it is not possible,
  • Discover the process of a sub-recipient obtaining an indirect rate with a Pass-Through-Entity; and
  • Obtain insight into the application of credits regarding PPP loan forgiveness.
  • Learn about other Federal grants insights.
