Welcome to Management Concepts’ Grants Blog.
We created this site as a tool to help you stay up to date on the latest information that affects the administration of federal grants and assistance programs. You’ll find posts about new governmentwide policies and directives, congressional activities, federal awarding agency issuances, answers to common grants management questions, and much more. We’ll also be passing along grants management tips, helpful resources, interesting facts and news briefs, and other tidbits that can help you in your daily work. And occasionally you’ll find a posting by a grants management subject matter expert who will share some real-life experiences, thoughts about current developments, and insights into federal grants management issues.
About the author…
My name is Lisa Hayes, and I’ll be posting most of the entries for the Management Concepts Grants Blog. I’m a curriculum developer in Management Concepts’ Grants division – which basically means I help write and update our training materials. One of my responsibilities is to constantly monitor developments affecting federal grants management, and this blog will offer me an opportunity to share some of that information with you. As we developed this blog, I envisioned that its contents would span three c’s: current, constructive, and casual. If you have questions or comments about anything you read on the blog, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
