Property Management and Federal Interest
Many Head Start programs have been trying to acquire new facilities to replace aging facilities and to expand services to meet the ever-growing need for Head Start services in their communities. When acquisition of new facilities is not an option, Head Start programs have sought to make improvements to existing facilities through expansive and expensive renovation projects. Even though the Office of Head Start has not set aside federal funds for the acquisition of new facilities, Head Start agencies must understand when a federal interest is created due to the method of financing and the extent of renovations.
Documenting and managing federal interest in real and personal property is critical to avoiding disputes upon disposition of that property. Failure to fully understand the impact of a federal interest in your nonprofit’s property can expose your organization to sizable liability. This webinar will discuss what a “federal interest” is, how it is created, its importance to Head Start programs, and the legal and practical implications of federal interests in the property.
