Ten key federal grantor agencies recently joined together to issue common regulatory policies related to “partnerships with faith-based and neighborhood organizations.” These policies cover federal financial assistance for social service programs that have individual beneficiaries, and are intended to assure that faith-based organizations can receive federal grants to provide services and that program beneficiaries are protected from discrimination based on religion.

“Faith-based” policy has been evolving for more than two decades and has sometimes generated controversy. Various executive orders issued over the years set forth principles and policymaking criteria to guide federal agencies in their dealings with faith-based organizations. Those orders directed issuance or revision of regulations that laid out awarding agency, recipient and subrecipient responsibilities, and beneficiary rights.

The latest issuances, released on March 4, take effect on April 3 and mandate new beneficiary notification steps by July 2. In fact, the new requirements ripple through the entire grant award and implementation processes.

This webinar will show you how to respond to the new policies and help assure your organization’s compliance. You’ll learn:

  • Which — and how — federal agencies have signed on to the common policies
  • The important permitted agency differences at the margins
  • What is meant by “direct” and “indirect” federal assistance
  • How federal funding opportunity announcements will change
  • The standard award clause that will apply to recipients and subrecipients
  • The required language for beneficiary protection notification
  • The kind of outreach available to reach beneficiaries
  • How to structure program delivery features to assure compliance
  • The nondiscrimination policies affecting employment

Join Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor,™ for this thorough and timely session. Bob has followed this aspect of grants management policy since its inception and has advised both awarding agencies and faith-based institutions about navigating a compliant path.
