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.
