Grants Administration and Management

Grants Administration and Management

Proper grants management is probably the most important way to continually get grant funding. This course covers the overall administration, management, and reporting of grants projects. Specifically, the course will focus on the following: funder terms and conditions, periodic reporting on activities and finances, providing supporting documentation, managing the relationship with grant funders, personnel and ethics, and grant close out activities. Basics such as: understanding reporting requirements, getting agreement from a project funder on deliverables, scheduling periodic reports, compiling data for final reporting, proper close out, and submission of deliverables and project artifacts will be covered. Participants will walk away with templates, a basic understanding of the grants management process, and close out procedures.


After completing this course, learners should be able to do the following:

  • Develop an organized approach to administering and managing grant projects;
  • Organize grant writing projects and teams;
  • Set up a grants management process;
  • Organize supporting documentation using a grants management application system;
  • Grant project closeout procedures and activities;
  • Gather requirements from funders.
