A guide for recipients of USAID Grants and Cooperative Agreements
NGOs that rely on USAID funding often face challenges in effectively managing their awards. The rules and regulations associated with award management are complex and the practical application of these rules is crucial for compliant project implementation. Organizations need staff members who understand how USAID awards work and can effectively manage USAID rules and regulations to maintain donor compliance. While the focus of this workshop will be on USAID funding for grants and cooperative agreements, it also provides a good foundation for understanding other US Government funding.
At the end of this workshop, participants will return to work equipped with a comprehensive knowledge of USAID grants and cooperative agreements, and strategies for building and coordinating relationships that are critical to successful USAID award and program management.
Scope of the Training
This training will include the topics related to Financial and Procurement Management which are necessary to be accounted for before applying for USAID grants. Hence the scope of this course comprises studying and exploring the USAID grant regulations in detail.

To make it highly innovative, the trainer will use lectures, case studies, group work, individual assignments, and exercises. The training will be conducted in a friendly environment where the participants will be encouraged to bring forward their queries and share their thoughts and opinions. Participative practical activities will reinforce individual and group learning.
