Many federally funded programs require cost sharing or matching contributions from your nonprofit. Your most important current or future federal grant source may hinge on your nonprofit’s ability to ‘meet the match’ or properly report on federally generated program income. If either of these two common, complex and often interrelated subjects are essential to your program success, then this webinar is essential for you and your nonprofit.

Please join Rex Porter as he provides a detailed review of key federal cost sharing and program income standards found in 2 CFR 200. He will provide you an understandable and repeatable approach to applying those federal rules as your nonprofit plans, estimates and reports on cost sharing or matching, and program income activities. He will address the four basic ways we meet our matching requirements and identify which is most risky and why. Rex will also tackle the two key post-award cost sharing and program income tasks: financial and program data collection and accurate reporting to your federal funders.

Don’t let the complexity and many rules surrounding cost sharing and program income keep your nonprofit from maximizing its federal grant funding. Learn how best to plan for and implement these rules to satisfy the strictest federal grants official or auditor.
