Grant Management and Compliance Solutions

Today, more state and local government entities are qualifying to receive funding from the federal government through various programs, including the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The documentation and reporting of funds received by the federal government can be a daunting task, and it is important to be diligent with prioritization, application and distribution in order to optimize eligible costs and expenditures for reimbursement.
