Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP (FTLF) has established a membership community to serve the needs of personnel involved in federal grant management. It is our goal to continuously provide useful, relevant information to those who face the daunting task of managing federal awards. 

Over the past several years, we have developed a suite of grant management educational tools, from live trainings, to webinars, to written guides  As our grant management training and education ecosystem continues to expand, we have established a training membership option for those we serve, offering full access to all of our web-based materials and discounts on our live trainings.

We welcome all grant management professionals into the FTLF grant training family and will continually strive to provide valued training tools and opportunities to our shared community.

Monthly Grants Webinars

Each month, we host a 75-minute webinar on a different federal grant management topic. These webinars provide ongoing professional educational opportunities on key issues.

Federal Grant Management Toolkit

Designed to help guide both new and experienced grantees through the rules of the federal grant system, this toolkit includes detailed narrative discussions of important grant management requirements, customizable sample policies and procedures, and ready-to-use checklists. The toolkit is a living document and as our attorneys add new content, Members receive any updates or changes we make during the year, free of charge. See the full Table of Contents.

On-Demand Access to Our Federal Grants Webinar Library

You will have access to on-demand recordings of all of the webinars in our Federal Grants Webinar Library. A list of webinars available to you can be found on the Federal Grants Practice Area page.

    Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

    As a Federal Grants Membership holder, if you need a certificate of attendance for a webinar, you must use the promo code to register for and enroll in the specific webinar (live or recorded version). Due to the nature of this particular course page, we are unable to verify completion of the recordings embedded here and cannot issue a certificate

    Group attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation.
