Many Head Start and Early Head Start programs have numerous funding streams, such as federal Head Start grants and state and local funding, to name but a few. With the myriad funding sources that programs juggle, following the federal rules for cost allocation carefully and appropriately is important. If your program fails to follow these rules correctly, monitoring findings, cost disallowances, and additional penalties can result. Don't let any of these happen to your program!  During this webinar, Partners the Feldesman law firm will cover:

  • What are common challenges with blended funding
