CARES Act Money is Out! Now What?

April 20, 2020

Access the On-Demand Webinar Here.

Last week, many Health Centers received their Notice of Grant Awards for the CARES Act funding. These awards provide funding to support the detection of coronavirus (SARSCoV-2) and/or the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For example, this funding can be used to maintain or increase health center capacity and staffing levels.

After receiving your Notice of Award (NOA), within 30 days of your award release date, you must submit the following:

  1. SF-424A Budget Form
  2. Budget Narrative
  3. Budget Narrative Overview
  4. Equipment List Form (if applicable)
  5. Minor A/R Project Information (if applicable) 

We want to help ensure that your use of CARES Act funds gets off on the right foot! On this webinar, we will review an actual (redacted!) NOA received by a health center under the CARES Act. Walking through the NOA line by line, we will explain the requirements of this new grant funding and identify provisions under the Uniform Guidance that are important to keep front of mind as you use these special funds. 

Target Audience

  • Health Center Leadership / C-Suite
  • Fiscal Management Personnel
  • Project Managers and other Grants Management Staff


Learning Objectives

After this webinar, you will be better able to:

  • Describe the requirements of awards under the CARES Act and how they differ from “regular” Section 330 funding
  • Understand the unique budgeting and grant application process for specialized grant awards
  • Identify any changes you need to make in your financial management system or financial processes to properly document your use of CARES Act funds (and similar funding that may be coming)
