Federal Funding Academy

Louisville, KY - September 12-14, 2018
Training Details

Join us at FTLF's Federal Funding Academy, a three-day overview of the federal grants system, covering everything from the legal underpinnings of the system through procurement and subaward requirements, cost issues, and audit resolution. 

Federal Grants Practice Group attorneys Ted Waters and Scott Sheffler and independent grants consultant Jerry Bertrand dive deeply into and lead participants through in-depth discussions of regulatory language and effective implementation – particularly when the regulations are ambiguous.  

At this highly interactive and at times humorous training session, you'll have plenty of opportunities for discussion with Ted, Scott, and Jerry. Take advantage of this opportunity to have your questions answered and to directly apply the knowledge you've gained from the training session. 

"In-depth training in layman terms -- it was very effective in conveying critical information and guidance.  A wealth of information covered with sample forms to implement and use.  All speakers were awesome!!  I loved the humorous involvement that all could relate to." - Past Attendee
