Grants Management

For compliance and to reduce the risk of deobligation, grant recipients must administer programs, applicant spending and federal funding in accordance with federal grant regulations. This administration requires numerous steps that include determining the eligible scope of work, estimates and accounting for eligible costs within the project. 

Our team of CPAs, PMPs®, CFEs, CIAs and CGFMs apply financial acumen, government experience and subject-matter knowledge to take a long-view approach to grant management. 

The HORNE Federal team works with you to implement standardized processes and procedures that simplify program implementation and audit compliance. We use best practices to help you achieve program success.
