Federal stimulus funds have increased grant dollars to jurisdictions across the country, but it’s also shed new light on existing challenges state and local governments need to urgently address if they hope to fully leverage this money.
The Center for Digital Government recently conducted a national survey of state and local government leaders to examine the ongoing challenges they face as they work to modernize grants administration. Join experts from Governing, eCivis and Grant Thornton on May 4 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET as we reveal what the survey told us about how state and local governments can optimize their processes, uncover more grant opportunities, increase funding levels to provide critical services to constituents and vulnerable populations, and lay the groundwork to support the country’s long-term economic recovery.
We’ll also explore:
- How to make grants management processes more technology-driven, automated and efficient
- How modern grants management processes can prevent and minimize waste, fraud, error and abuse and ensure program dollars are put to best use in local communities
- Case study examples of jurisdictions that have successfully modernized grants management processes
