Federal Grants

When seeking, receiving, or using Federal funds, compliance with Federal laws and regulations applicable to Federal assistance may be required. These requirements are incorporated in the OMB A-133 Compliance Supplement, which can be found here from the US Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

OMB created fourteen basic and standard compliance requirements for which recipients must always comply with when receiving and using such Federal funds, and provides detailed information in the OMB A-133 Compliance Supplement about these requirements. The supplement, however, is only a guide to the hundreds of laws and regulations applicable to the specific type of assistance used by the recipient. The Funding Entity may also be able provide contract language, program manuals, or other information that can be used as a guide. For additional information please refer to the White House Office of Management and Budget Website here.

State Grants

Some state Grants may include Federal Funds on a pass through basis. These federal pass through funds would also be subject to Federal compliance laws.
