Under Uniform Grant Guidance, the way you meet reporting and certification requirements has a direct—and lasting—impact on your access to funding. That’s because federal agencies and pass-through entities are using this information to evaluate both risk and performance.

Grant-seekers must comply with all the different certifications and reports required as well as the deadlines that apply. The extra challenge is that it’s not enough to comply: the reports you submit must accurately demonstrate your compliance.

Here’s how to do it.
