Allowable Grant Costs: Best Practices for Avoiding Cost Disallowances
  • On-demand
Rex Porter

Spending money on a grant-funded project happens all the time as we help our beneficiaries and we seek to achieve our nonprofit’s mission. However, federal grant funds come with many strings attached, like program rules, laws and even our own nonprofit’s policies. But, even if we’re following all of those practices correctly – we still have to be perfectly compliant with a pesky set of grant rules that the U.S. government calls the ‘Cost Principles.’ These rules apply not only to our CFO and financial officers, but to our project managers, as well as our project partners when they are spending some of the federal grant funds we receive! So, this raises THE key question: Are we spending federal grant funds correctly – 100% of the time? Are we consistently following the federal grant cost principles as we build budgets, spend funds, make purchasing decisions and prepare for our next audit?
