This webinar is closed to new enrollments. For more health center trainings, click here.

Duration: 90 minutes
Webinar recorded on: 4/20/2020

Last week, many Health Centers received their Notice of Grant Awards for the CARES Act funding. These awards provide funding to support the detection of coronavirus (SARSCoV-2) and/or the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For example, this funding can be used to maintain or increase health center capacity and staffing levels.

After receiving your Notice of Award (NOA), within 30 days of your award release date, you must submit the following:

  1. SF-424A Budget Form
  2. Budget Narrative
  3. Budget Narrative Overview
  4. Equipment List Form (if applicable)
  5. Minor A/R Project Information (if applicable) 

We want to help ensure that your use of CARES Act funds gets off on the right foot! On this webinar, we will review an actual (redacted!) NOA received by a health center under the CARES Act. Walking through the NOA line by line, we will explain the requirements of this new grant funding and identify provisions under the Uniform Guidance that are important to keep front of mind as you use these special funds. 

Target Audience

  • Health Center Leadership / C-Suite
  • Fiscal Management Personnel
  • Project Managers and other Grants Management Staff

Learning Objectives

After this webinar, you will be better able to:

  • Describe the requirements of awards under the CARES Act and how they differ from “regular” Section 330 funding
  • Understand the unique budgeting and grant application process for specialized grant awards
  • Identify any changes you need to make in your financial management system or financial processes to properly document your use of CARES Act funds (and similar funding that may be coming)

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
