In recent years, the federal government has awarded more financial assistance in the form of grants than it has awarded government contracts.  Over the same span, grant recipients and subrecipients- i.e., state and local governments, hospitals, institutions of higher education, and non-profit organizations- have increasingly been alleged to have committed federal, state, and/or local civil False Claims Act violations.  This course is designed for any practitioner who manages or advises those who manage federal, state, and local grant funds.

Course Objectives:

  • History and Overview of the False Claims Act (Federal, State, and Local)
  • Application of the False Claims Act to Grant Recipients and Subrecipients
  • False Claims Act Theories of Liability Applicable to Grant Recipients and Subrecipients
  • False Claims Act Defenses Available to Grant Recipients and Subrecipients
  • How Grant Recipients and Subrecipients Can Potentially Avoid False Claims Act Violations

Target Audience: Attorneys, grant managers (state and local governments, hospitals, institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations) at all experience levels.

Course credits: 1.5 hours
