Budgets for the 21st Century

Grant Budgets for the 21st Century

Grants have changed in the past decade and grant budgets have been a large part of that change.  The Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) has worked with grantmaking agencies and the grantee community in the development of governmentwide policy to assure that grants are managed properly and that Federal dollars are managed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. OMB significantly reformed Federal grant-making by streamlining 8 Federal regulations into a single, comprehensive policy guide.

This reform impacts the public sector and nonprofit sector and it reaches much further than previous grant management and budget requirements. What do we mean by ‘reaching further’? The new requirements include subgrantee / subaward budgets – meaning that many nonprofits that were previously not impacted by the federal cost principles are now aligning their budgets and reporting processes to the federal standards.

Big changes, indeed!

This week we will look to the Grantchat community to hear about their experience and their questions concerning budgets in the 21st century.
