(Floyd County, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) and Grant Writing USA will present a two-day grants management workshop on the Floyd County Campus in Rome, May 12-13.


The workshop will take place in Room 101 B of the H Building. Classes will begin at 9 a.m. on both days and will end no later than 4 p.m. Tuition for the workshop is $595 per person and includes a 500 page participant guide and reference binder. Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits are available to educators that participate in the workshop.

“Members of GNTC’s Office of Academic Affairs attended a previous workshop through Grant Writing USA and found the information to be invaluable,” said Samantha Bishop, academic affairs credentialing and grants assistant at GNTC. “We wanted to give the community the opportunity to receive the same benefits as we did.”

The training will help beginning and experienced grant managers and administrators that work for an agency that receives, or plans to receive, government grants. It is aimed at government and nonprofit professionals at grant recipient organizations including city, county, and state agencies as well as K-12 schools, colleges, and universities.

The course is a grant management class and not a grant writing class. It will cover how to manage federal, state, or local grants in accordance with laws and mandatory compliance guidelines. Grant Writing USA does offer grant writing workshops that include writing grant proposals and will conduct one in the Atlanta area, March 29-30.

Topics for the workshop include: Basics of Federal Grant Management, Basics of Non-Federal Grants, Office of Management and Budget, Types of Awards, Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006, Grant Award Notification, Organizational Management, Internal Control, Award Negotiations, Evaluation, Administrative Rules, Budget Management, Financial Management Standards, Supplement vs. Supplant, Salary Charges, Cost Share/Match, Procurement Standards, Indirect Cost, Disposition of Property, Record Retention, Debarment and Suspension, Davis Bacon Act, Carryover Balance, Grant Extension, Grant Closeout Procedures, Audit, Documentation and File Management, Super Circular, Sub-Recipient Monitoring, Cost Principle Changes, Audit Changes, and Websites Referenced.
