Thompson's Guide to Grants Terminology


Managing a federal grant is complex! Not only are you required to follow a multitude of regulations and policies to stay in compliance, there is a whole range of terminology you must learn. Because entities and organizations are currently facing a high degree of turnover, getting up to speed on these terms is critical for success.
