       These Regional Grants Management Training Seminars are designed specifically for people responsible for the programmatic and financial administration of grants awarded from Federal grant-in-aid programs administered by the COPS Office.  Please note:  If you are a COPS in Schools grant award recipient, please be aware that attendance at a Regional Grants Management Training Seminar may not be substituted for attendance at a mandatory COPS in Schools Training session.

       Knowledgeable and experienced COPS officials will introduce seminar topics, serve as primary seminar presenters, and facilitate seminar discussions. Topics to be covered during the seminars include the application review process, grantee financial reporting requirements, methods of payments, matching requirements, indirect costs, closeout procedures, monitoring responsibilities, procurement, lobbying, compliance with drug-free workplace requirements, supplanting, and audits.

       Funding for the Regional Grants Management Training Seminars was obtained from the COPS Office. Seminar attendees will be responsible for all costs associated with their participation in the seminar, including transportation, lodging, and meals. Tribal agencies are permitted to use COPS Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) funds to cover these costs. There is no seminar fee.

       The format will be informal and participants are invited to dress casually.

       A block of rooms has been reserved at each of the hotels. All room rates are the current government per diem for each respective city.   Please make your hotel reservation as soon as possible.  To receive the negotiated rate, please tell the reservation staff that you are part of the COPS Regional Grants Management Training Seminar.   Space is limited; please see more information about hotel accommodations to reserve your room.
