The True Cost of Grants and How to Maximize Your Cost Recovery

Date: Tuesday, February 27, 2024 at 3.00 PM – 4.00 PM

Navigating the world of grants is challenging. From finding the right grant for your organization to tracking its progress and closing it out is, let’s be frank, a burden. While it’s rewarding to receive an award, the excitement can fade if the strain on resources and financial burden outweighs the award itself. Join Nicky Lettini and Kathleen Kizior to gain insight into what to ‘know before you go’ for a grant including grant writing, award monitoring and reporting, and indirect cost.


  • Understand responsibilities of grant recipient from pre to post award.
  • Learn about the impact of indirect cost for your grant and how to maximize recovery.
  • Ensure a successful outcome of your grant programs.
