Financial Reporting and Accessing Funding (Financial Directors) (FD 102)

The Connecticut Commission on Community Service (CCCS) takes its role as a prime grantee of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seriously. As stewards of federal funds, the Commission is committed to providing financial strong oversight of our subgrantees. As such, vigilant adherence to reporting and cash request requirements as set forth by CCCS is an essential responsibility of your AmeriCorps*Connecticut program. This course will review CCCS financial reporting and funds access compliance elements to ensure that AmeriCorps*Connecticut programs are positioned to access their awarded funding and pursue their program impact goals. Content includes differences in procedure according to grant type, understanding and modifying your program budget, and reporting deadlines and procedures.
